The best 4th of July sales from Apple, Amazon, Anker and more

We rounded up all the tech deals we could find for your 4th of July shopping.

Solo Stove

July 4 isn't really a boon for tech deals. Seasonal sales can be hit or miss if you have things like headphones, tablets and other tech gear on your shopping list — you're actually better off looking for early Prime Day deals (if you're a Prime member) right now, since Amazon has already kicked off the discounts in preparation for its July Prime Day event. But we scoured the internet to find as many of the worthwhile tech deals you can get for July 4 — many of them overlap with Prime Day deals, but there are some from the likes of Solo Stove, Casetify, ThermoWorks and others that appear to be limited-time, seasonal discounts. Here are the best July 4 tech deals you can get this year.

A four-pack of Apple's AirTags are on sale for $80 right now, bringing the price for each down to just $20. We named the AirTag the best Bluetooth tracker for iPhone users in our guide to those fobs, thanks to Apple's massive finding network that calls on every nearby iPhone to anonymously search for your lost stuff.

The latest stylus for iPads, the Apple Pencil Pro is currently on sale for $119 on Amazon. That's just $10 lower than its original price, but does happen to be the first discount on the new accessory since it's launch last month. The new Pencil Pro recognizes squeezes, which can trigger actions like bringing up app-specific tool palettes and shortcuts, and gives you haptic feedback as you use it. It can also detect rolling the barrel for more precision as you draw.

Apple released the new iPad Air models with the M2 chip back in May and right now, the larger 13-inch model with 128GB of storage is available for a record-low price of $749, down from $799. The M2 iPad Air is our choice for 2024's best overall iPad. Apple's new slate earned a 91 in our review because it's powerful, capable and has a great-looking screen. It doesn't have the top-of-the-line features and performance of the new iPad Pros — but the Air is nearly $500 cheaper.

Apple's latest MacBook Pros are on sale: the 14.2-inch version is down to $1,749 for a config with an M3 Pro chip, 18GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD at Amazon and B&H. That's $250 off Apple's list price and $50 below the street price we've seen on Amazon over the last couple of months, though it's $50 more than the lowest price we've tracked. The 16.2-inch model is also on sale for $2,199, which is an all-time low. That model has the same base specs, though it has a slightly stronger 12-core CPU (instead of the 11-core chip on the 14-inch model) and 18-core GPU (instead of a 14-core unit) alongside its roomier display. Just keep in mind that we may or may not see new M4-based models by the end of the year.

Solo Stove's currently offering up to an additional $150 off when you pick up one of its fire pits or bundles using the code SAVEMORE.

You'll save even more on higher-priced items like the bigger Yukon 2.0 fire pit, which earns an extra $50 off and a final price of $400.

This Instant Vortex Plus air fryer is one of our favorites and it's currently on sale for $100.

It has intuitive controls, an easy-to-clean cooking basket and a window that lows you check on your food while it's cooking so you can get it just right.

In addition to being Qi2-certified, this 15W charger makes a great travel companion because it can power up an iPhone, Apple Watch and a pair of AirPods simultaneously.
