Best Apple Deals 2020

Apple might not traditionally offer huge discounts on its own products, but we've scoured the web for the best deals on Apple products from all vendors. You'll find great deals on iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, Macs and MacBooks and more. 

Amazon, Argos, Currys and other big retailers offer sales events at various points throughout the year, and with our indispensable guide you can snap up lots of Apple tech at bargain prices. Grab these deals quickly though - they'll sell out fast!

Apple iPhone SE (3GB RAM, 64GB)

Apple iPhone SE (3GB RAM, 64GB)

From: Amazon

Was: £419

Now: £409

Apple's stellar affordable offering for 2020, the updated iPhone SE comes with a hint of a discount, making the choice between it and the capable Pixel 4a all the more challenging.

Apple iPhone 11 with 20GB data

Apple iPhone 11 with 20GB data

From: iD Mobile

Now: £49.99 upfront, £34.99 per month (£889.75 TCO)

This deal offers twenty times as much data as the one we recommended in July, but still costs £119 less over the course of the contract. Great value!

iD is really smashing the deals right now. Some of these are so good that it's almost tempting to buy now despite the looming iPhone 12 launch...

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max with unlimited data

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max with unlimited data

From: iD Mobile

Now: £99 upfront, £49.99 per month (£1298.76 TCO)

This is a big improvement, both in data allocation and price, from the Vodafone deal we were recommending last month; no doubt iD is influenced by the upcoming iPhone 12 launch.

We'd recommend waiting until Apple reveals the next generation, but if you need to buy now this is the deal to go for.

Apple iMac Pro, 3.2GHz, 8-core Xeon, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 5K Retina display (late 2017)

Apple iMac Pro, 3.2GHz, 8-core Xeon, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 5K Retina display (late 2017)

From: eBuyer

Was: £4,899

Now: £4,103

This model of the iMac Pro has been discontinued by Apple, and you can now get the iMac Pro with 10 cores for £4,999. However, this is a remarkably good deal which can save you a lot of money on what is still one of Apple's fastest Macs.

Apple 21.5in iMac, 3.6GHz quad-core, 4K Retina Display (2019) with 256GB SSD

Apple 21.5in iMac, 3.6GHz quad-core, 4K Retina Display (2019) with 256GB SSD

From: KRCS

Was: £1,299

Now: £1,234.06

It might only be a small discount - and even smaller if you compare it to the £1,249 that this iMac was selling for before the 'update' in August, but the fact that you get a better SSD for less than the old model (which was hampered by the hard drive) makes this a decent deal.

Apple 27in iMac, 3.8GHz eight-core, 10th-gen, 512GB SSD (2020)

Apple 27in iMac, 3.8GHz eight-core, 10th-gen, 512GB SSD (2020)

Now: £2,184.05

Apple 27in iMac, 3.3GHz six-core, 10th-gen, 256GB SSD (2020)

Apple 27in iMac, 3.3GHz six-core, 10th-gen, 256GB SSD (2020)

KRCS has already discounted the new 2020 27in iMac. You can get the 3.1GHz 6-core, 10th-gen, 2020 iMac for £1,709.05 - a really decent discount for such a new model.

Apple 15in MacBook Pro, 2.3GHz, eight-core i9, 16GB RAM, 512GB (2019)

From: Amazon

Was: £2,699

Now: £1,990.87

Save money on the top-of-the-range 2019 15in MacBook Pro with this Amazon deal. That's an 8-core 2.3GHz i9 9th generation Intel processor!

Apple has discontinued this Mac but its spec is actually quite similar to the new 16in model that would cost £2,799.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro (SIM-free)

Apple iPhone 11 Pro (SIM-free)

From: KRCS

Was: £1,049

Now: £919.72

KRCS is normally good for small but reliable savings; this is a far more substantial discount on a terrific flagship phone. Perhaps this reflects the imminent launch of the iPhone 12 in September or October.

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)

Apple Watch Series 3 (38mm)

From: John Lewis

Was: £199

Now: £195

It may not be the biggest discount with £4 off the Apple Watch Series 3, but it's worth pointing out that John Lewis provides a two-year warranty opposed to the one-year warranty you'll get directly from Apple.

Apple 13in MacBook Air, 1.1GHz quad-core, 512GB (2020)

Now: £199.97

The AirPods Pro are Apple's ultimate in-ear headphones. They offer active noise cancellation and three sizes of soft flexible silicon tips for a customisable, comfortable fit. Right now you can get £49 off the usual price with Appliances Direct (who are claiming it's £59 off but that's not true!).
