Thursday’s best deals include $99 off iPad Air, plus markdowns on AirPods Pro, and MacBook Pro. You’ll find all that and more below in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Take $99 off Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Air

Amazon is offering Apple’s 10.5-inch iPad Air Wi-Fi 256GB in Silver for $550. As a comparison, that’s a $99 savings from the regular going rate and a match of the Amazon all-time low for this model. Apple’s latest iPad Air sports a 10.5-inch Retina display, 8MP and 7MP cameras, and support for Apple Pencil. All are powered by the new A12 64-bit SoC processor. This is a great middle ground between Apple’s larger and smaller iPads currently on the market.

AirPods Pro hit new all-time low

Best Buy is offering Apple AirPods Pro in Geek Squad Certified Refurbished Condition for $209. As a comparison, these earbuds typically sell for $249 new and are down to $235 at Amazon. AirPods Pro delivers a refreshed take of the popular original version, now featuring active noise cancellation, tapered silicone tips, and a water-resistant design. Apple’s H1 chip ensures you have fast connectivity and up to 24 hours of battery life. I picked up this pair late last year, and I have to say that the hype is real. Our Jeff Benjamin agreed in his recent hands-on review, noting that AirPods Pro “sound amazing, they’re uber-portable, come with great battery life, and feature incredible Active Noise Cancellation.” they include a 90-day warranty.

13-inch MacBook Pro is $600 off

B&H offers the previous-generation Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro 256GB with Touch Bar for $1,100. That’s good for $600 off the original price and $100 less than our previous mention. This machine includes a 3.1GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It ships with four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, Touch ID sensor, and more. Although a previous-generation model, there’s still plenty of value here, and it’s worth noting that this is a rare chance to score the upgraded hard drive with 256GB below $1,100.

Save 50% on Twelve South’s HiRise stand

Twelve South via Amazon is currently offering its HiRise iPhone Charging Stand for $10. Down from $20, today’s offer beats our previous mention by $6, and returns to match the all-time low. With a built-in Lightning cable in tow, Twelve South’s charging stand is comprised of higher-end materials than your average plastic alternative. Whether it’s for refueling your iPhone or AirPods on a nightstand or even topping off a Magic Keyboard, any device rocking Apple’s charging port can technically take advantage of HiRise.

VIZIO 65-inch AirPlay 2 TV includes a $200 credit

Dell is currently offering the VIZIO M-Series 65-inch AirPlay 2 4K HDR TV (M658-G1) bundled with a $200 gift card for $650. Usually selling for $750, right now Best Buy has it marked down to $670. Throw in the bonus $200 credit, and you’re saving up to 32% while scoring one of the best values to date. Centered around a 65-inch 4K HDR panel, this quantum dot TV comes equipped with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility, as well as Chromecast integration. Built-in smart capabilities offer easy access to popular streaming services, as well. There’s also four HDMI ports as well as a single USB slot included.
