The novel coronavirus is obviously at the top of everyone’s minds right now, and that’s as true of executives at big companies as it is of the rest of us. That is perhaps why Amazon decided to temporarily shift warehouse space and shipping resources away from nonessential products in order to free up capacity for essentials. Of course, those of use in quarantine still have a need for items deemed nonessential, so there are still some nonessential products that are shipping out immediately.
Apple devices and accessories are obviously among the most popular in the world, and so many of them are still shipping. What’s more, there are actually some terrific deals to be found despite everything that’s going on. Here, we’ve rounded up the five best Apple deals out there right now so you can stock up and save.
Everyone knows that AirPods are the most popular wireless earbuds out there, but they’re also quite pricey. If you head over to Amazon, however, you’ll find AirPods 2 on sale with a $20 discount and AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case are on sale with a $30 discount. Self-quarantine will go much smoother with great music playing through great earbuds.
We debated whether or not to include this one since Apple’s AirPods Pro aren’t on sale right now, but they’re the most popular AirPods version we cover even when they’re full price. They’re in stock on Amazon and shipping right now, which isn’t very common so don’t miss this opposrtunity.
There are a bunch of great deals on Amazon right now on iPads, and they’re shipping right away. Trust us, a tablet is an awesome thing to have in quarantine and it’s so much better than streaming stuff to a tiny smartphone screen. 10.2-inch iPads start at just $279 instead of $329 on Amazon right now, and tons of iPad Pro models are discounted as well.
Need a new laptop? Want an Apple machine but don’t want to pay top dollar? The previous-generation MacBook Air is on sale right now for just $749.99, which is a big discount compared to the normal price of $1,000.
Last but certainly not least, definitely hit Amazon’s Apple accessories page for tons of surprisingly good discounts on popular accessories. Cables, iPhone cases, and more are on sale right now, but some popular items are starting to sell out.
