The yearly Memorial Day sales tend to be more associated with cheap appliances than Apple deals, but, if you're a fan of premium tech you'd honestly be surprised at how many excellent options there are this weekend.
Indeed, we're actually seeing some of the lowest prices yet on a number of the latest MacBooks, iPads, and even Apple Watches. We're always on the lookout for Apple deals here at TechRadar so we've rounded up what we think, in our humble opinion, are the five best ones to check out this weekend.
MacBooks in particular are down to the cheapest prices yet on the latest M1 models - just $899 (opens in new tab) for the MacBook Air and $1,099 (opens in new tab) for the MacBook Pro respectively at Amazon. And, while we've just missed the first-ever price cut on the 2021 Apple iPad Pro 11 (also at Amazon (opens in new tab)), you can still score yourself the 2021 iPad Air for $549 (opens in new tab) - just $10 more expensive than its lowest ever price.
Just below you'll find our top Apple deals for this weekend's Memorial Day sales. If you're curious about what else is available, then at the bottom of the page we've rounded up the best deals from across the web.

The 5 best Apple deals in the Memorial Day sales
1. The lowest price yet on the Apple Mac Air M1...
Apple MacBook Air (2020, M1):
$999 $899 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $100 - The Apple MacBook Air M1 is currently ranked as our best laptop to buy in 2021 so it's an easy recommendation - especially since it's at its lowest price yet in the Memorial Day sales. With a powerful M1 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, this entry-level model is still absolutely fantastic for a wide range of applications, and, despite that powerful new chip, this is still one of the slimmest ultrabooks money can buy.
2. And the Apple Mac Mini M1...
Apple Mac Mini (2020, M1, 512GB):
$899 $799 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $100 - Here's a real dark-horse of an Apple deal on the awesome 2020 Mac Mini M1. Even though it's small, this awesome desktop is capable of some serious power thanks to that M1 chip and we'd also recommend the 512GB capacity specifically since these things don't have many ports for external drives. Also, did we mention this is the lowest price we've seen yet?
3. A fantastic premium tablet choice
Apple iPad Air (2020, 64GB):
$599 $549.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $50 - Ok, so this isn't exactly the biggest price cut you'll ever see on an iPad, but if you're a fan of premium Apple tablets then you'll definitely want to consider the stunning latest iPad Air. This iteration has been upgraded significantly with a gorgeous squared-off design, new colors, a screen upgrade, and a powerful A14 Bionic chip.
4. The latest Watch with a nice little price cut
Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS):
$399 $349.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $49 - Price cuts on the latest Apple Watch Series 6 have been pretty rare so far - probably because this device is really popular right now. That said, here's a small but welcome discount courtesy of the Memorial Day sales that'll put a GPS model on your wrist for a few bucks less. With a lovely always-on Retina display and innovative ECG and blood oxygen monitoring features, this is one very powerful smartwatch indeed.
5. A great price cut on a stunning ultrabook
Apple MacBook Pro 13 (2020, M1):
$1,299 $1,099.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $200 - And, last but certainly not least, we have this Memorial Day sale on the stunning latest Apple MacBook Pro 13 M1. This is again the cheapest price yet from Amazon, so if you're looking for one of the most powerful (and attractive) ultrabooks on the market, this is a great buy. Alongside the gorgeous liquid retina display this configuration has a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and of course the latest M1 chip - a very powerful processor indeed.
