Apple headphones

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)

4.7-star average rating from 32,942 reviews on Amazon

AirPods Pro are some of the best wireless earbuds on the market. Multiple Select staff members use these earbuds daily for commuting, making calls and listening music while working out. In our experience, they have crisp sounds and excellent noise-canceling features. These second-generation models come with multiple ear tips in the box, a lanyard loop on the charging case and touch-sensitive volume controls on the earbuds for easy adjusting.

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)

4.8-star average rating from 577,839 reviews on Amazon

These second-generation AirPods are a popular wireless earbud option and are much lower-priced than the brand’s newer earbuds or Airpods Pro. In our experience, they work best with Apple products — they detect and pair more easily than other earbuds on the market. They have a five-hour battery life on their own, but the charging case can boost the total battery life to over 24 hours, according to the brand. Unlike AirPods Pro, these do not have noise cancellation features or silicone ear tips.

Apple Watch

Apple Watch Series 8

4.7-star average rating from 6,804 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

Voted best fitness tracker in our Select Wellness Awards, this is a top smartwatch for iPhone users to track detailed fitness-, health- and sleep-related data. Unlike other smartwatches, the screen on this water-resistant watch is always on, making it easier to check the time or notifications at a glance. In my experience, I found the screen easier to glance at and swipe through when compared to the Watch SE. New to the Series 8 is crash detection — it can detect when you are in a severe car crash and contact emergency services automatically, according to the brand. The watch comes in two different sizes with dozens of watch band options.

Apple laptops

Apple M1 MacBook Air (2020)

4.8-star average rating from 19,722 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

This MacBook is one of Apple’s thinnest and lightest. It has a compact 13.3-inch screen and only weighs 2.8 pounds, making it well-suited to frequent travelers and working remotely. It has Apple’s M1 chip inside, which offers much improved performance and battery life (up to 18 hours) compared to previous iterations of this model, according to the brand. In our experience, we’ve found the keyboard in this model to be much improved from Apple’s previous models pre-2019.

Apple iPad

Apple iPad Mini (6th Generation)

4.8-star average rating from 7,340 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

This iPad Mini (8.3 inches) is slightly smaller than Apple’s latest iPad (10.9 inches), but is just as capable. At 0.65 pounds, it weighs almost half as much as the newer iPad too. Despite its smaller size, it still has the same capable front and rear cameras, up to 10 hours of battery life, stereo speakers and a high-resolution display. It is compatible with most Apple accessories excluding the Magic Keyboard and comes with either 64GB or 256GB of internal storage.

Apple iPad 2021 (9th Generation)

4.8-star average rating from 121,776 reviews on Amazon

Apple’s 9th generation iPad is the cheapest of all its tablets, but is still fast and intuitive. I’ve used it for years to stream TV shows and movies, reference recipes while cooking, enjoy family video calls and play games. This iPad has the same 10-hour battery life as other, newer models and comes in two colors with 64GB and 256GB storage options.

Apple accessories

Apple 20W USB-C Power Adapter

4.8-star average rating from 187,006 reviews on Amazon

This wall charger from Apple can charge iPhones, iPads, AirPods and more—and fast. You can get to 50 percent battery in around 30 minutes, according to the brand. It works with iPhone 8 or later. The charging cable is sold separately.

Apple Pencil (2nd Generation)

4.7-star average rating from 79,300 reviews on Amazon

In my experience, the Apple Pencil turns any iPad into a capable drawing and note-taking machine. This version of the Apple Pencil is much-improved from the original: it is thinner, shorter and has flat sides, leading to a more ergonomic fit, according to the brand. It is compatible with the iPad mini (6th generation), iPad Air (4th generation and later) and iPad Pro (1st generation and later).

Apple Pencil (1st Generation)

4.7-star average rating from 118,782 reviews on Amazon

The first generation Apple Pencil still provides an excellent drawing and note-taking experience, but unlike the second generation model, it does require you to physically plug it into the iPad charging port to recharge it. This model is compatible with iPad (6th generation and later), iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad Mini (5th generation) and iPad Pro (1st generation and later).

Apple iPhone 14 Pro Silicone Case with MagSafe

4.3-star average rating from 2,683 reviews on Amazon

This Apple phone case is compatible with iPhone 14 Pro models. It has magnets built-in that allows you to use wireless charging and MagSafe accessories, even with the case on. The case is made of silicone, and the inside has a soft microfiber lining, according to the brand. It is offered in seven colors, but only the storm blue, midnight, chalk pink and red cases are discounted.
