The Best Prime Day Apple Deals

Apple never holds sales — even on Black Friday or Cyber Monday — but Amazon has slashed the prices on its computers, tablets, and headphones as part of Prime Day.

Amazon’s blowout annual sale is a great time to shop for most tech, but these Apple deals are particularly notable — in some cases, you’ll find its gear for its lowest price ever.

Remember: the best Prime Day deals are reserved exclusively for Amazon Prime members. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can get a 30-day free trial right now which will get you access in time for Prime Day.

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

The final day of Amazon Prime Day is here and runs until 11:59 p.m. PT tonight. Rivals of the retail giant, including Best BuyTarget and Walmart, also have some big sales this week. Wearables from tech’s biggest brands Apple and Samsung are included.

Amazon workers call for a day off to vote.

Almost 4,000 tech and corporate workers at Amazon have signed an internal proposal asking the company to give all its workers, including those in its warehouses, a paid day off to vote, according to organizers and screenshots of the effort viewed by The New York Times.

“Voting during the pandemic means hourslong lines and confusion over where and how to vote,” the internal proposal said. “Amazon has an opportunity to raise the bar and help ensure that every Amazon worker’s vote will be counted.”

Amazon has more than 600,000 workers in the United States. A company spokeswoman, Jaci Anderson, said that in states with in-person voting, workers can request time off at the start or end of their shifts to vote, but how many hours, and whether it is paid, varies based on what state law.

Riled Up: Misinformation Stokes Calls for Violence on Election Day

In a video posted to Facebook on Sept. 14, Dan Bongino, a popular right-wing commentator and radio host, declared that Democrats were planning a coup against President Trump on Election Day.

For just over 11 minutes, Mr. Bongino talked about how bipartisan election experts who had met in June to plan for what might happen after people vote were actually holding exercises for such a coup. To support his baseless claim, he twisted the group’s words to fit his meaning.

“I want to warn you that this stuff is intense,” Mr. Bongino said, speaking into the camera to his 3.6 million Facebook followers. “Really intense, and you need to be ready to digest it all.”

His video, which has been viewed 2.9 million times, provoked strong reactions. One commenter wrote that people should be prepared for when Democrats “cross the line” so they could “show them what true freedom is.”
