We saw some great Apple Prime Day deals back in July, and we'd normally now be looking forward to Black Friday as the next big sale, but there's a rumour buzzing around that Amazon might have a little surprise for us. It's been suggested that we may not have heard the end of Apple Prime Day deals for this year, the idea being that Amazon might try to get in ahead of Black Friday with an early access Prime Day sale for members. 

This means that this year there may be one extra chance to grab Prime Day iPads, Apple Watches, MacBooks and Airpod savings. We tracked all of the best Apple Prime Day deals on this page during Prime Day, and we'll be resurrecting it to do the same again if Prime Day does return for a second helping this year. For now, we'll leave you some of the best current Amazon Apple deals running – take a look because some of them are as good as what we saw during Prime Day back in July!

in July, many of Amazon's discounts were actually extra-Prime Day deals available to non-members, which is great news if you don't have a subscription. But remember that to get the members-only Apple Prime Day deals, it's easy to quickly sign up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial (opens in new tab)

For now here are the best Apple Prime day deals still available right now. Make sure you see our full roundup of Amazon Prime Day 2022 for more. And see the best Apple Labour Day deals for more bargains.

Apple Prime Day deals: iMac

Apple's iMac range of computers contains some expensive devices and big discounts are relatively rare. We don't tend to see more than $100 - $200 / £100 – £200 shaved off the prices here at the best of times, and Amazon has some non-Prime Day savings in that range.

AirPods are the Apple products that tends to see the most regular discounts at Amazon. Surprisingly, there aren't any specific Prime Day AirPods deals so far, but Amazon does have some good savings on AirPods outside of Prime Day, meaning you don't need to be a member to snap up one of these offers.

iPhone deals most commonly come through phone companies, but Apple does sometimes have some discounts on unlocked iPhones, particularly in the UK. We'll be posting the best deals here throughout Prime Day 2022.

Apple Pencils don't tend to come in for more than the occasional small discount of up to around $20 / £20. We saw discounts of that size during Amazon Prime Day last year, and we can expect to see similar this year.

Apple Prime Day deals: Apple Watch

The latest Apple Watch models to be released are the Apple Watch 7 and the Apple Watch SE, and we saw Apple Prime Day discounts on both during Prime Day in July. We'll expect to see more of the same if we get another Prime Day – and there are actually some good deals to be had now, as you can see below.

All you need to know about Apple Prime Day deals

When do Apple Prime Day deals end?

Amazon Prime Day 2022 took place over two days: 12 and 13 July (Yes, it's called Prime Day, but it's actually two days). The official sales started at 3am ET on 12 July in the US and at 12.01am on 12 July in the UK, elsewhere in Europe and in Australia.

Apple Prime Day deals, and all Prime Day deals ended in the UK and the rest of Europe and Australia at 11:59pm on Wednesday 13 July at each country's local time. In the US, where there are several time zones, Prime Day ended on 14 July at 2.59am for those on Eastern Daylight Time and at 11.59pm on July 13 for those in the Pacific Daylight Time zone.

All exclusive Apple Prime Day deals ended at those times, but as you can see above, there were a lot of Amazon Apple deals that weren't officially part of Prime Day, and are still running now. The great thing about that is that they're open to non-Amazon Prime members too.

There has never been a second chance to get Apple Prime Day deals in a single year, and Amazon has not said that there will be another Prime Day this year, but there are rumours that there will be a Prime Day sale later in the year, perhaps before Black Friday, so bookmark this page and keep checking back for updates.

Are Apple products included in Prime Day?

Amazon offers Prime Day discounts across a huge range of products, including a lot of tech items. In previous years, Apple products have been included in that. Don't expect massive Apple Prime Day deals across the tech giant's range, after all Apple products tend to hold their value. But, based on previous years, we expect to see some decent savings.

Last year, we saw up to $100 / £100 off the price of some iPads and MacBooks, rising to $200 / £200 in cases of the most high-spec configurations. We also what at the time were record low prices on AirPods Pro, plus some decent savings on iPhone 12 and Apple Watch 6 in the UK.

By and large, you'll need to turn to slightly older Apple products for the biggest potential savings. We're unlike to see much, or any, discount on the latest 2022 iPad Air, for example, but we could well see some tempting deals on the 2020 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, and last year's iPads and MacBook Pros.

Don't forget that other retailers often try to get in on the action too and offer Prime Day Apple deals of their own (an open to non-Prime members). These are obviously not technically Prime Day Apple deals, but retailers seem to time them intentionally to compete with Amazon. We'll be tracking those deals here as well to give you more change of finding the best Apple deals without having to scour the web.

Do I need to be a Prime member to get Apple Prime Day deals?

In the main, yes; at least to get the official deals during Prime Day (or Days) itself. If you want to take advantage of Prime Day Apple deals from Amazon, you'll need to be a member of Amazon's subscription service, Amazon Prime. 

Luckily you can sign up for a no-strings-attached 30-day free trial (opens in new tab), which means you can take advantage of Amazon Prime Day Apple deals before you start to be charged for a subscription. And you can always even cancel your subscription with no penalty as soon as Prime Day is over if you really don't think you'll continue to use the benefits of the service.
