Yes, Apple has set up shop on Amazon. That means you can get official Apple products with free Prime shipping, and even better, it's almost the whole product line -- from iPhones to silicone cases and Apple Watches to accessories, all the way to the Mac and almost everything in between.

Think of it as an Apple store with a wide selection of products like the Mac (desktops and laptops alike), iPhones (in unlocked variants), iPads, Apple Watches and countless first-party accessories. You'll also find a full selection of Beats by Dre products, and even Apple's own second-generation AirPods are in the store. Almost all of these include free Prime shipping as well.

And the best news is that prices are often discounted on a number of products, including right now. Let's walk through the Apple Shop on Amazon and our favorite deals.

AirPods & Beats by Dre

It's only been a few months since Apple launched second-generation AirPods, but that's no reason the price can't be reduced. Currently the base AirPods with charging case and the wireless charging case for AirPods are both on sale.

IPhone accessories

It's no secret that Apple offers some really nice accessories, like silicone and leather cases for a whole range of iPhones, that provide protection along with a simple and sleek design. Plus, every so often throughout the year, Apple drops a new color wave for each of the cases. Luckily for you, Apple is chopping the prices in its Amazon store.

IPads and iPad Accessories

The iPad might be the most recognizable tablet out there, or at least one that comes to mind first. And Apple makes several of them, because there isn't one iPad that fits everyone's needs. The base iPad packs a 9.7-inch display and a $329 price point (although it's on sale for $249). You also get the 7.9-inch iPad Mini, 10.5-inch iPad Air, 11-inch iPad Pro and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. All of these come in your choice of a few colors, along with the choice of Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and cellular models, the latter of which provide you with internet on the go, as long as you have the device activated with a data plan.

Another commonality is that all iPads run iOS 12 with multitasking features, allowing you to use two or more applications at once in a split screen capacity. You can stream movies and TV shows in the Apple TV app, read the latest novels in iBooks, stream songs in Music and find an app for anything in the App Store.

This store is also home to both the first-generation and second-generation Apple Pencils, a plethora of adapters, and several sizes of Smart Keyboards.

Cables, dongles, docks and wall plugs

Generally Apple's cables, dongles, docks and plugs can cost a pretty penny. But on the Amazon storefront you can often find savings -- small discounts, and every once in a while, big ones -- on these products. After all, you can never have too many Lightning cables, and now is a good time to stock up.

  • iPhone Lightning Dock in White ($36.98, originally $39.99; amazon.com)
  • iPhone Lightning Dock in Space Grey ($39.28, originally $49; amazon.com)

Macs

When you can score a Mac at even a small discount, it's a really good feeling. And since Apple refreshed (finally!) the MacBook Air in late 2018, discounts haven't been the easiest to find. But right now on Amazon, you can save a minimum of about $100 on MacBook Airs. These laptops keep the thin design they're known for, but add a butterfly keyboard, a larger trackpad and a beautiful Retina display. You can also find savings on the entry-level 12-inch MacBook.

  • Apple MacBook (12", Intel Core M3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD) in Silver ($999.99, originally $1,299; amazon.com)

  • Apple MacBook Air (13", Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB SSD) in Space Gray ($1,249.99, originally $1,399; amazon.com)

Mac accessories

Sure, there are plenty of third-party companies and manufacturers that make accessories for the Mac, from USB-C hubs and cables to keyboards and mice. But when it comes to accessories that feel the same and have the same level of quality, you'll likely want to look at Apple's own offerings. And you can now get the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad 2 in Space Grey to match an iMac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro in that color.

  • Apple Magic Mouse 2 in Space Gray ($92.99, originally $99; amazon.com)
  • Apple Magic Mouse 2 in Silver ($67.31, originally $79; amazon.com)
