Prime Day AirPods deals — which model to buy?
While all Apple listening devices have their pros, the decision comes up to you on what fits your lifestyle best. Those who want a compact option to fit in their pocket and prefer a discreet and lightweight feel can benefit from the AirPods (2nd Generation) or AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) because they provide a sleek fit. Both AirPods (2nd Generation) and AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) are water resistant so they make comfortable fits for outdoor activities in the sweaty summer season. Both options have a carrying case to recharge on the go.
For listeners who want to feel immersed in the sound, a headset such as the AirPods Max or the Beats Studio3 can be a great option. Providing a comfortable fit and flexible designs, they can easily fit into a bag. While these options do not have a portable charger and require an external power source to charge, they offer up to 20 hours (the Beats Studio3 provides up to 22 hours) of listening time to last you all day.
Does Apple have a Prime Day sale?
One of the best tech sales of the year is courtesy of Amazon's Prime Day deals on Apple products, which includes everything from AirPods to higher-ticket items like MacBooks and iPads. Though Apple itself does not have a sale during this time frame, they happen to regularly participate in Prime Day, which is a great time to save on must-have tech products. They also have marked-down prices on necessities like plug-in chargers, too!
Why are AirPods Pro cheaper on Amazon?
For those concerned about the authenticity of Apple products on Amazon and their discounted price point, you're not alone. In 2018, after the tech giant noticed an overwhelming amount of third-party sellers offering knockoff Apple products through Amazon, Apple struck a deal with the online retailer. This move allowed Amazon to purchase Apple products in bulk and sell them, including offering competitive prices during tentpole sales events like Prime Day.
