ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping.

This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

The 19 best Apple deals happening right now: iPads, MacBooks, and more on sale

If you want to buy an Apple product without breaking the bank, here are some great deals we've found online.

Apple is a popular retailer and manufacturer of tech products including iPhones, iPads, macOS PCs, and smartwatches. Apple frequently refreshes its product lines -- one of the latest being the iPhone 14 range -- and this can open the path to discounts in the form of new, promotional deals for the latest gadgets and price reductions for older designs. 

The problem with Apple products is that they usually carry a hefty price tag and they're rarely on sale. However, you can still find discounts -- large and small -- if you know where to look. Typically, third-party retailers, such as Walmart or Amazon, will be the places to find a discount on your new MacBook, iPad, or other Apple product.

To find good deals to expand your Apple ecosystem, read on to find ZDNET's best picks.
