Kick off the 2022 summer sales, a new promotional period that will end on July 19 and during which you will be able to make good deals. If you want to redo your technological wardrobe at Apple, be aware that several devices from the Apple brand are on sale. On the program, iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Apple Watch, AirPods and some accessories. In order to help you separate the wheat from the chaff, we have selected the most interesting discounts among all its offers.

Top iPhone deals

A new design, an OLED screen, an even more powerful chip, a neat photo part, 5G, the iPhone 12 is on strike. Too bad the storage space of the basic version is only 64 GB.

Say goodbye to the iPhone SE. Here is the little iPhone we’ve been waiting for from Apple, the iPhone 12 Mini. Its small size, user-friendly navigation in iOS 14 and high screen-to-body ratio make this compact smartphone an almost perfect device to use with one hand. Its size does not affect its performance, it takes excellent photos and videos and provides fantastic images in all circumstances. The high-end performance of the iPhone 12 is there and note that it is the smallest 5G smartphone on the market. If there is a consequence to having a small phone, it is autonomy. During our tests, the iPhone 12 Mini lasted a day of regular use without any problems. A great iPhone than this Mini.

On the front, little change, the iPhone SE 5G 2022 still takes the stylistic codes of an iPhone 8 released almost 5 years ago. A design marked as “iconic” according to Apple. The recipe works and speaks to Touch ID enthusiasts, there is no reason for Apple to change it.

Discounted iPads

A screen that’s still just as good, a dated but far from outdated configuration and a particularly well-optimized OS, the 10.2-inch iPad isn’t a revolution in itself, but the few improvements made by the Apple firm make it a must. for any consumer looking to be entertained and work on an accessible tablet. “Accessible”, if you can get by with 32 GB of non-expandable storage and if you don’t feel the need to buy a Smart Keyboard and/or an Apple Pencil. For a more advanced, more flexible and more comfortable use, the iPad 7 imposes a checkout process that we consider far too painful.

The most accessible of Apple’s iPads gains a more powerful chip and retains all its advantages. The winning formula for Apple, which could still have reviewed the outdated design of its tablet.

Apple iPad Pro 11 inch (2021)

The most “compact” of the iPad Pro 2021 benefits from all the improvements of its big brother: 5G, M1 chip, Mini-LED screen and Thunderbolt port.

The iPad Pro 2021 is full of new features and steps back on many points thanks to its M1 chip, its Mini-LED screen, its 5G compatibility and its Thunderbolt port.

The best Apple Watch deals

The new Apple Watch is getting a long-awaited key feature and software update, but otherwise it’s still the same great watch from last year. Its screen, which is now always on, fills a major gap. No need to contort your arm to check the time in any circumstance, and that changes everything in terms of use. Note in the other main improvements, a compass (magnetometer) which indicates the right direction when navigating with maps and an international emergency call function on models with cellular connection. Incremental evolutions for this series 5 which remains one of the best smartwatches on the market.

The Apple Watch Series 7 is more like an “Apple Watch 6s”, but it’s a big step up if you have an older model.

The icing on the MacBook side promo

AppleMacBook Air 2020 (M1)

Of the three new M1 Macs, the 13-inch MacBook Air is the one that differs the most from its predecessor. The fan cooling system has been removed in favor of an aluminum heatsink. A major evolution made possible by the very efficient operation of the M1 processor which produces less heat and even outperforms high-end Intel Macs. The M1 chip of the MacBook Air is almost identical to that of the MacBook Pro. It’s a huge argument in favor of the MacBook Air against the Pro if you’re looking for the best performance for price content. The most recommendable MacBook this year.

The best of AirPods deals

For its first foray into the market, Apple signs a Bluetooth headset with an irreproachable and extremely premium finish delivering excellent sound quality despite the use of the AAC codec alone and an impressive spatialization, worthy of an open headset. Equipped with a top-flight active noise reduction system, the AirPods Max also adopt complete, simple and effective physical controls, and offer a solid Bluetooth connection thanks to two Apple H1 chips, all for 20 hours of autonomy. However, the helmet is not perfect and some design “errors” have been made in our opinion: the device is heavy, not foldable, and must be transported with its cover, the only way to manually put the device in standby. In addition, it is necessary to buy yourself a Lightning to jack cable to use it wired and some features are reserved for iOS, such as multipoint Bluetooth. Despite these flaws and the exorbitant price, the AirPods Max are, in our opinion, one of the best mobile headphones with active noise reduction on the market.

This “Pro” version of the AirPods has been completely redesigned, and for the better because, in our opinion, it is the best earphones ever designed by the brand. On the menu, a semi-in-ear design that is splash-proof (notice to athletes) offering excellent comfort while avoiding the too intrusive side of this format, good quality sound reproduction, much richer especially in bass , but also a very efficient active noise reduction and a solid wireless connection (and Multipoint if you have iOS/MacOS terminals). They also recharge more easily thanks to their case supporting inductive charging, which compensates for the absence of a USB-C port. Although their price is still high, the AirPods Pro will appeal to both iOS and Android users, although the latter unfortunately lose some functions.

The cream of Apple accessory deals

Apple Magic Keyboard

Official Apple wireless keyboard for Macs, but without numeric keypad and Touch ID. It is recharged using a USB-C to lighting cable supplied with it.

The AirTag is a connected beacon that allows you to locate your objects (backpacks, handbags or even toys). The tire tracker is part of the ultra-wide band (UWB) and pairs with your Apple device from the “Find” application.
