Apple today launched a new online store in the U.S. that's designed to provide a 10 percent discount on select products for both activity military and veterans, along with members of their households.

With the discount, the iPhone XS is available priced starting at $899, while the iPhone XR is available priced starting at $674. These devices are priced at $999 and $749, respectively, in Apple's standard online store.

Discounted prices are available on iPhones, Macs, Apple Watch models, iPads, the Apple TV, HomePod, AirPods, and accessories like cases, Apple Watch bands, and even third-party items that include speakers, drones, and more.

Apple told TechCrunch that it is "proud" to offer the discount to active military and veterans.We're proud to offer active military and veterans a new dedicated online store with special pricing as an expression of our gratitude for their brave service.Apple has offered educational discounts to students, teachers, and faculty members for quite some time, along with discounted pricing for military and federal government employees.

The 10 percent discount being provided to active military and veterans exceeds the discounts that Apple offers via its educational store.

Picked up the iPad for $249 at Walmart on Black Friday. That's much cheaper than the listed price of $296 under this promotion.

I just went to buy airpods for my son. Apple cost with Vet discount = $159 + $8.95 shipping.
Amazon price = $154. + free shipping (I also received $10.00 off because I bought Fallout 76 3 weeks ago and they felt sorry for me).
Apple is just doing a marketing/advertising ploy here and needs to be called out for it.

I don't think the price for an iPhone could get any lower without the vet discount.

Those prices on macs are even less than the educational discount.

I just bought an iMac using the Internet. I allped for education discount and the discount applied. I had the finished computer sent to the house. Did not interact with anyone but my wife does have a school nurse ID.
