Apple device deals
Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pro (8/10, recommended wired) comes with upgrades inside and out. It has an industrial design with a sleeker chassis, lots of ports (including a MagSafe port for charging), a nice 14.2-inch display with ProMotion (boosts frame rates to 120Hz), and a 1080p webcam. Under the hood, the M1 Pro offers excellent performance that can handle nearly any task you do with it. The discount applies to the 1 terabyte model, but the 512 gigabyte version is also on sale for $1,800 ($199 off).
The 16-inch MacBook Pro (512 gigabytes) offers the same aforementioned features as the 14-inch version. But because it’s huge, it’s not the most portable MacBook and barely fits in most of my backpacks. Still, extra screen real estate is great, especially if you spend most of your time staring at your computer working on the go. This pattern fluctuates in price frequently and has since dropped to $2,111, but it is still a solid deal.
Apple Watch Series 7 (8/10, recommended wired) is our favorite smartwatch for iPhone users, and it’s currently at the lowest price we’ve ever tracked. Compared to the Series 6, it has a 20% larger screen (complete with a full-size QWERTY keyboard), sturdier glass, and greater resistance to water and dust. It’s a great option if you’re looking to upgrade a much older Apple Watch, or you’re entering the market for your first watch. Less, Dimensions 41 mmis also on sale for $279 ($50 off).
We consider the Apple Watch SE (8/10, WIRED Recommend) the best option for most people. It is equipped with a Retina display, an S5 chip (faster than both Series 3 and Series 5), drop detection, and more memory. That’s beyond standard, health and fitness tracking features, like heart rate monitoring and workout modes. But since it’s an entry-level tracker, you won’t get the more sophisticated features found on the Series 7, like the always-on display, ECG monitor, and SPO2 sensor.
Apple TV 4K (8/10, WIRED Recommend), is a great streaming device for Apple ecosystem loyalists. It packs the A12 Bionic chip for faster performance (and HDR support up to 60 fps), easy-to-navigate menus, and a redesigned remote control. much More intuitive to use. It’s also at the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
We like the AirPods Max (8/10, WIRED Recommend) for a variety of reasons. They’re super stylish, offer great sound and noise cancellation, and integrate seamlessly with iOS devices. They are also some of the most expensive wireless headphones out there. And while they fell to $323 shortly in April, we still consider this a good deal.
They may not come in Cupertino White, but these Beats Fit Pro (which are Apple-made headphones by Deputy Editor Parker Hall are most people’s favorite. They come in a variety of colors, are incredibly comfortable, and They sound great, plus they instantly pair with all Apple devices, just like the standard AirPods (but with a much cooler look).
There are many third-party MagSafe chargers on the market, including those currently on sale, but you’ll get the fastest wireless charging possible with the Apple product itself. It attaches to the back of your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 magnetically and charges your device at 15 watts. WIRED review editor Julian Chokkattu says his only complaint is that the cable is a bit too short.
MagSafe Duo is perfect for people with iPhones and Apple Watches. With the corresponding location for each, you can use Duo to charge both devices simultaneously. It also folds together seamlessly, making it ideal for travel. It is also compatible with AirPods (supported models only) and Qi-certified devices.
Apple official case with MagSafe is a good choice for your iPhone. It has precise cutouts for ports, flashing buttons and a slim profile. We also like that it keeps the camera module flat, so your iPhone won’t rock back and forth when it’s flat on a surface. Cases come in a leather version also.
If you prefer a trackpad over a standard mouse for your Mac or iPad, the Magic Trackpad is a great accessory — I love using it with Mac Studio and Display Studio especially. It automatically pairs with your device, offers about a month of battery life, and comes with support for Apple’s full suite of Multi-Touch gestures.
