Powerbeats Pro offer a truly wireless design

Amazon offers Apple’s Beats Powerbeats Pro Totally Wireless Earbuds in all colors for $200. That’s down from the usual $250 price tag and right at our previous mention, as well as the Amazon all-time low price. Powerbeats Pro deliver the latest in audio from Apple, offering up to 24-hours of playback and a totally wireless design made for workouts. Apple’s H1 chip makes it easy to quickly pair and you can enjoy longer range and features like Hey Siri. Swing by our hands-on review for more.

Twelve South New Year’s sale

Amazon has a number of discounts on Twelve South products this morning, headlined by the BookArc for MacBooks at $46. It regularly sells for $60 with today’s deal matching our previous mentions and is the best price out there by roughly $10. Twelve South’s stylish MacBook dock delivers a matching silver or space gray design made of aluminum. It’s particularly ideal for clamshell mode setups where having a dependable MacBook dock is essential. Find even more Twelve South deals here.

iPad mini Smart Cover sees rare discount

Amazon offers Apple’s official iPad mini Smart Cover in White for $29 shipped. As a comparison, it typically sells for $39 with today’s deal marking a new Amazon all-time low. Wrap your iPad mini in Apple’s in-house Smart Cover, which offers display protection and an integrated kickstand. Automatic sleep and wake features make this case all the more functional whether at home or on-the-go.

Spigen’s matte black iPhone XS Max Case is $14

Spigen’s official Amazon storefront offers its Ultra Hybrid iPhone XS Max Case in matte black for $14. Having originally retailed for $30, a price you’ll still find direct from Spigen, it has more recently been hovering around $18 or so at Amazon. Today’s offer is good for a 24% discount and marks a new all-time low for this style. This matte black case provides scratch protection for your iPhone XS Max and sports a raised front which keeps the screen from being scuffed when placed on a table. It won’t get in the way of your handset’s Qi charging capabilities, and relies on “Air Cushion Technology” for shock-absorption in case of drops.
