Apple doesn’t do Prime Day; instead, it saves its big discounts for its annual back-to-school promotion. The UK one is live now, with big discounts on Macs and iPads and a few free gift cards too, with values up to £120. If you were planning on buying an Apple kit anyway, this promotion cuts the cost considerably and is available in October.
Educational pricing offers significant savings. There’s £100 off the MacBook Air (M2) and £101 off the MacBook Air (M1), £241 off the 16-inch MacBook Pro and £125 off the 24-inch iMac. The laptops come with a £120 Apple Gift Card that you can use for your iPhone 14.
There are also deals on iPads. The iPad Air went from £569 to £526, while the iPad Pro went from £749 to £711. Both iPad models will also give you an £80 Apple Gift Card.
Along with these great deals, you’ll also find discounts on accessories like the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.
