If you’re looking to get your hands on the latest Apple tech, you might want to shop Apple on Amazon first. The online retail giant has tons of deals on Apple products — even the just-released Apple AirPods Pro 2.

And that’s not all — we found a retailer that’s discounting the just-released Apple iPhone 14, too.


Top product in this article:

Apple AirPods Pro 2, $240 (reduced from $249)

Apple iPhone 14 on AT&T (128GB), $779 (reduced from $800)

Apple iPhone 14 on Verizon (128GB), $779 (reduced from $800)


The new Apple AirPods Pro 2 boast Apple’s best noise cancellation and even better battery life than before. There are new touch controls, plus the earbuds feature a redesigned case.

The new earbuds retail for $249 at Apple, but we found them cheaper on Amazon, where they’re just $240. We found them priced at $240 at Walmart too. That’s not much of a discount, but remember: The Apple AirPods Pro 2 just came out about a week ago.

The latest Apple AirPods Pro 2 earbuds offer 30 hours of listening time with the included charging case. They have an upgraded wireless chip for improved audio functionality, a new low distortion driver for clearer audio and improved active noise cancellation. The Apple AirPods Pro 2 provide truly custom sound: You can use your iPhone’s camera to analyze your unique ear anatomy and find the perfect audio settings for you.

The design of the AirPods Pro 2 is fairly similar to the previous generation, but Apple has introduced touch control to the AirPods Pro 2 to help users more seamlessly control their AirPods. Users will also get a new extra-small tip with their AirPods. The case did get a notable design upgrade with a new lanyard loop and a built-in speaker to help track the location of your AirPods case.
