The shopping extravaganza continues. It's day two of Amazon's Prime Early Access sale, and it's not too late to score steep discounts on your most wanted Apple products.

Whether you are in need of a serious tech upgrade or you're just scouting for gifts, there are bona fide savings to be had across the whole Apple ecosystem. Savings apply to both previous- and current-generation cyber icons: MacBooks, iPads, Apple Watches and AirPods.

There's never been a better time to become a member of Jeff Bezos' behemoth and save money on stuff you actually want. Here are some of the top Apple deals that we've unearthed so far.

2020 MacBook Air — $799 (originally $999)

AMAZON.COM

You can save $200 on the revolutionary MacBook Air (2020 version), one of the best picks out there for Apple laptop users. With a resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels, the 13.3-inch Retina display is super sharp and the battery life runs for 12 hours when playing back videos with the Apple TV app. It features the M1 chip — a major leap in productivity — an enhanced keyboard and Apple's signature sleek design.

2021 MacBook Pro (16 inch) — $2,099 (originally $2,499)

AMAZON.COM

Apple's latest MacBook Pro is perfect for professionals on the go, with a much longer battery life (21 hours) and more ports, including an HDMI port, headphone jack and USB-C port — addressing a previous gripe from Apple users. Its lightning-fast M1 chip drastically improves performance, and there’s an enhanced 1080-pixel webcam, six speakers with greater sound range and bass, and a revamped keyboard which replaces the touch bar of the previous generation with buttons.

AirPods (2nd Generation) — $89 (originally $159)

APPLE AIRPODS (2ND GENERATION)/AMAZON.COM

If you've ever wondered about those long-stemmed AirPods and what all the fuss is about, a discount just shy of 50% might tempt you to find out. With a few extra features over its previous model, the second-generation AirPods are a perfect backup headset when traveling (they do not have any noise-canceling capability). Convenient sensors allow you to pause and resume music by taking the earbud in and out, while the "Hey Siri" feature activates hands-free voice control. Apple advertises a battery life of about five hours, and it comes with a nifty, magnetically closing charging case.

2022 Apple iPad Air (5th Generation) — $519 (originally $599)

AMAZON.COM

The latest iPad Air features a 10.9-inch, anti-reflective Retina screen as well as 64GB of storage and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. The new M1 chip improves battery life and overall performance — reaching speeds up to 60% faster. It also features Touch ID for security. Upgrading to the "Wi-Fi + Cellular" (5G) model will cost you a lot more — $669 (originally $749). It's available in blue, purple, pink, starlight and space gray (all colors are on sale).

2021 Apple 10.2-inch iPad — $269 (originally $329)

AMAZON.COM

Apple's previous-generation iPad is also heavily discounted. The key differences are that it has a slightly smaller 10.2-inch Retina display and an inferior back camera (8 megapixels); however, it has the same ultrawide 12-megapixel front camera. It features the A13 Bionic chip (versus the more powerful M1) and Touch ID. Wi-Fi + Cellular versions are available, but they do not apply to Amazon's Prime Day event. The sale includes both white and gray color options.

Apple Watch (Series 8) — $349 (originally $399)

AMAZON.COM

You can save $50 on the latest 2022 Apple Watch — its first major discount — which gives the standard-bearer smartwatch some handy new features. In addition to its standard fitness tracking tools, it monitors heart rhythm and blood oxygen, and there's a temperature sensor and car crash detector that automatically calls 911. It has a slightly improved battery life over the Apple Watch 7 (around 18 hours, or 36 hours in low-power mode).
