Amazon’s fall Prime Day event is underway. For more deals we recommend across all categories, check out our full roundup here.

Apple rarely discounts its own products, so if you want to score a great deal on a pair of AirPods or a MacBook, it’s best to set your eyes on third-party retailers like Amazon. If you missed out on the Apple discounts we saw during the first Prime Day, however, Amazon’s October Prime Day event has brought some of them back. Despite the fact we’re down to the final hours, we’re still seeing steep discounts on Apple Watches, iPads, and even the new second-gen AirPods Pro with USB-C, which launched less than a month ago.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best Apple deals you can currently get at Amazon and other retailers, so even non-Prime members can save before the clock strikes midnight.
