Memorial Day Apple sales: iPads
Apple iPad 10.9 2022 (64GB):
$449 $399 at Amazon
Apple's 10th-generation iPad is now available for its lowest-ever price at Amazon. With this tablet, Apple successfully migrated the base iPad from its classic, first-gen Air looks to an iPad Pro-influenced design, and the result is a high-quality, versatile device that will satisfy the broadest set of users, from fun lovers and content consumers to those looking to get some work done.
Apple iPad 10.2 2021 (64GB): was
$329 now $269 at Amazon
If you're looking for a cheap iPad in today's Memorial Day sales, Apple's 10.2-inch iPad is on sale for a record-low of $269. While it's not the speediest tablet in the range, a decent screen, quality design, and relatively speedy chip make this the iPad that suits most people's needs the best. For streaming, shopping, and doing a few light work tasks, it's a great choice, expressing with today's $60 discount.
Apple iPad Pro 12.9 2022 (128GB):
$1,099 $1,049 at Amazon
The 128GB version of Apple's latest iPad Pro – aka the best iPad money can buy in 2023 – is now on sale at Amazon's Memorial Day sale for $1,049. Sure, that's not a significant discount on the tablet's original price, but this is the crème de la crème of Apple's iPad offering, meaning it rarely sees itself discounted to anything lower than $1,099. If you just want to watch movies and video chat with friends, the Pro is seriously overkill, but if you're after the best of the best, this is it.
Memorial Day Apple sales: iPhone
Apple iPhone 14: up to $800 off with trade, plus free iPad and Apple Watch at Verizon
Verizon's iPhone deals on the iPhone 14 offer the usual trade trade-in rebate of up to $800 but you can also take advantage of a limited-time-only option to bundle in a free iPad and Apple Watch. These are substantial freebies but the caveat here is that you still need that unlimited data plan to be eligible - and you'll need to pay for the lines on the freebies. Caveats aside, however, this is a super strong deal that's worth taking advantage of.
Apple iPhone 14 & 14 Plus: up to $700 off with trade-in and unlimited plan at AT&T
Another top destination for carrier iPhone deals, AT&T is offering a trade-in rebate of up to $700 off the two 'standard' models in the new iPhone 14 range. While good, this particular rebate is just shy of the record $800-off we've seen previously. That said, this is still a solid choice if you get good AT&T coverage in your areas as you'll be able to significantly shave off the cost of your new device. See this same deal on the iPhone 14 Plus.
Apple iPhone 14 & 14 Plus: save up to $600 with a trade-in at Apple
Do you want an unlocked iPhone 14? We've got good news and bad news. First up, the bad news is you'll have to get your device directly from Apple - sorry, no other choices. The good news, however, is that you'll be able to get a fairly sizeable trade-in rebate of up to $600 off right now, which is decent, even if it doesn't challenge the big carrier promotions. As always, you'll need to have a really decent phone to fetch the maximum rebate but even fairly modest devices should also be able to score more than a few bucks off here.
Memorial Day Apple sales: MacBooks
Apple MacBook Air, M1 (2020): was
$999.99 now $799.99 at Amazon
The 2020 Apple MacBook Air with an M1 chip is older now, but it's still one of the best laptops ever made. With this Memorial Day deal, the device that we awarded 4.5 stars out of five in our MacBook Air M1 review is now back down to its lowest-ever price at Amazon. Apple's premium device is fast, responsive, beautifully designed, and has a long-lasting battery life.
MacBook Pro M1, 1TB (2021): was
$2,499 now $1,899 at Amazon
Amazon's Memorial Day Apple sale has the 2021 MacBook Pro on sale for a record-low price of $1,899, thanks to today's whopping $600 discount. Rated as one of our best laptops, the 2021 MacBook Pro packs a fantastic 14-inch Liquid Retina XDR display and Apple's powerful M1 Pro chip - a component that delivers impressive performance and 17 hours of battery life.
When is Memorial 2023?
Memorial Day 2023 falls on Monday, May 29. Memorial Day is an American federal holiday that always falls on the last Monday in May to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.
When do Memorial Day Apple sales start?
Generally speaking, Memorial Day sales on tech products tend to be concentrated around Memorial Day itself, the preceding weekend, and in some cases the preceding week too. We usually see the big hardware stores like Lowes and Home Depot begin their Memorial Day sales in early May, but the tech retailers like Amazon and Best Buy usually kick off their sales later in the month.
For Memorial Day Apple deals specifically, based on previous events we'd say it's a great idea to keep an eye out from Monday, May 22nd onwards but don't be in a rush to pick anything up. Retailers are likely to reserve their best deals for Monday, May 29, so if you want to snag the lowest price possible, you should wait for Memorial Day proper.
