The latest AirPods drop to $130 while Powerbeats Pro are also on sale for $200. Other notable deals include the 2019 iPad Air with a $40 discount and Logitech’s popular Bluetooth keyboard. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Latest AirPods and Powerbeats Pro see 1-day deal
Rakuten has a pair of deals on the latest AirPods and Powerbeats Pro starting at $130. You can save around 20% off both models, marking some of the best prices we’ve seen to date. The second-generation AirPods offer support for “Hey, Siri” and include Apple’s upgraded H1 chip for fast pairing. We loved them in our hands-on review.
Prefer a lower-cost alternative to the latest AirPods? Save over 50% and opt for Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air earbuds. You will miss out on deep iOS integration and “Hey, Siri” support, but there’s still a lot to like here. Check out my review for additional details.
Entry-level iPad Air is $40 off
Amazon offers Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Wi-Fi 64GB for $459 shipped. That’s a $40 discount from the regular going rate. Apple’s latest iPad Air features a 10.5-inch Retina display with True Tone and wide color support. It’s all backed by an A12 Bionic chip, alongside Touch ID, eight and 7MP cameras, and up to 10-hours of battery life. There’s even support for Apple Pencil.
This Logitech keyboard pairs w/ three Mac + iOS devices
Amazon is offering the Logitech K480 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard for $25. Unlike Apple’s Smart Keyboard, this Logitech offering features a slot that is made to fit various tablets and smartphones. Logitech states that it can fit ‘most phones and tablets up to 0.4 inches thick and 10-inches wide’, which should theoretically work with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in portrait and 11-inch model in either orientation. Smaller iPads should leave room for an iPhone, allowing you to prop up both devices at once.
Twelve South PowerPic offers Qi charging in a sleek design for $50
Amazon offers the Twelve South PowerPic 10W Qi Charger in both colors from $50. As a comparison, it typically sells for $80 and is at its full price at most retailers. Today’s deal is a match of the best we’ve seen at Amazon. This Qi charging stand features 10W speeds but really stands out from the competition with its interchangeable background. That makes it a nice addition to your nightstand, avoiding the ugly plastic Qi charger look we typically see. It was a fun change from the usual in our hands-on review.
LIFX’s Tile set delivers HomeKit ambient lighting for $150
Amazon currently offers the LIFX Tile Modular HomeKit Lighting Starter Set for $150. While it originally sold for $250, a price you’ll still pay at LIFX direct, it just dropped from $190. Today’s offer is good for at least 22% in savings, comes within $30 of the all-time low and is the third lowest we’ve seen overall. LIFX’s Tile brings five multicolor lighting panels to your smart home setup. They can be reconfigured into various patterns and feature unique lighting designs to add a pop of ambiance to your space. Plus, with HomeKit support you can call upon Siri to help set the mood.
