Best Apple AirPods Deals

Immerse yourself in music, podcasts, or streaming video with the AirPods’ active noise cancellation (ANC), high-quality audio performance, and snug in-ear fit. The buds’ built-in controls make it easy to navigate tracks, switch between ANC and Transparency modes, and activate Siri with just a few taps (or a simple voice command). Apple estimates 4.5 hours of battery life, depending on noise-cancellation use and volume levels; the palm-sized wireless charging case provides up to an additional 20 hours of listening, and can be recharged via a Qi pad or USB-C-to-Lightning cable.

Apple offers four different iPad models with five different screen sizes and a variety of prices. So what’s the right choice for you? The baseline iPad is ideal for everyday needs like watching videos, reading books, browsing the web, and chatting with friends; it features an A13 Bionic chip, up to 256GB of storage, a 10.2-inch Retina LCD screen with 2,160-by-1,620-pixel resolution, an 8MP rear camera, and 12MP selfie shooter.

The small-but-mighty mini, meanwhile, packs a big punch with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display and 2,266-by-1,488-pixel screen, A15 Bionic chip, and 12MP rear-facing cam. It also boasts Wi-Fi 6 and 5G, as well as a USB-C connector.

On the more fully featured end is the M1-powered iPad Air, sporting a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina LCD screen with 2,360-by-1,640-pixel resolution and 12MP ultrawide front camera. If you’ve got the cash to burn, Apple’s 11- or 12.9-inch iPad Pro uses the same M1 chip, but goes even bigger with multiple rear cameras, an HDR display, and up to 2TB of storage.

The Apple Watch also comes in an assortment of sizes and styles, making the decision about which wearable to buy more difficult. The Series 7 launched last year with a larger display and faster charging—available in 41mm or 54mm and a limited set of colors. The always-on smartwatch’s biggest upgrade is its improved durability, sporting a dustproof IP6X certification, more crack-resistant Ion-X glass, and water resistance up to 164 feet. If you’re just looking for a timepiece that can track your exercise, try Apple’s more budget-friendly alternatives: the Watch SE drops the always-on display and a couple of advanced health sensors from more expensive models, but otherwise delivers the same winning app, fitness, and safety features for less.

Apple outfits its latest laptops—the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro—with its M2 chip, which can handle high-performance tasks while also covering everyday activities that consume less power. But M1-based machines are still more-than-capable laptops, and both are on sale now.

For artists and creative professionals, Apple’s second-generation Pencil is the only iPad stylus worth considering, we found in its review. Just make sure to check whether your device needs a first- or second-gen Pencil. Apple’s AirTag, meanwhile, tells your other Apple devices exactly where to find your lost objects, even if they’re miles away. If you’re charging a newer iPhone, they support Apple’s wireless MagSafe charging, and you can save a few bucks on a charger.
