Apple AirPods 2 with wireless charging case
Rakuten offers the latest Apple AirPods with wireless charging case for $150. That’s down from the usual $199 price tag and typical $165 holiday advertised rate you’ll find at other retailers. This is also a match of our previous mention. The second-generation AirPods offer support for “Hey, Siri” and include Apple’s upgraded H1 chip for fast pairing. Great for a holiday gift this year or for yourself upgrading a mobile work setup. We loved them in our hands-on review.
Black Friday pricing live for ecobee
Black Friday pricing on ecobee’s latest SmartThermostat with Voice Control is now live at Amazon for $199. Today’s deal is a $50 price break from the regular going rate and a return to the Amazon all-time low price. We’ve only seen it this low once before, back on Prime Day 2019. ecobee completely redesigned its new thermostat, now featuring a glass face and a “vivid” touch display. You’ll still be able to count on HomeKit and Siri control, along with support for Alexa, Google Assistant, and other smart home mediums. Ships with a new smart sensor that’s made to track temperatures throughout your home. Learn more in our hands-on review, where we called it “a very compelling option for many households.”

Electronic Express via Rakuten is offering the Apple iPad Pro 12.9-inch 64GB Wi-Fi for $799. That’s $200 off the regular rate, more than a $147 savings compared to Amazon’s current sale price, and happens to be a match for the lowest Amazon offer we can find. Apple’s latest iPad Pro features a Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display with ProMotion, True Tone, and wide color support. Face ID, a 12MP camera, and 10-hour battery life are also in tow, providing a truly great tablet experience.
Eve Door & Window brings automations to your Siri setup
Amazon is currently offering the Eve Door & Window HomeKit Entry Sensor for $30. Usually selling for $40, today’s offer is good for a 25% discount, marks the first major price drop of the year, and is at a new Amazon all-time low. Eve’s entry sensor works with HomeKit via Bluetooth and is a great way to enhance the functionality of your Siri-enabled setup. Whether you’re looking to double down on automations, or bring home a greater sense of security, Door & Window is a capable option. I personally use one to turn lights on and off in my apartment, but it can also be configured to notify you when opened, and more.
