WWDC discounts arrive for Apple Watch Series 5 in today’s best deals, plus iPhone XS Max sees a sizable discount, and you can save big on previous-generation MacBook Pro models. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Apple Watch Series 5 deals start at $299

Apple Watch Series 5 discounts for WWDC have arrived with Amazon taking $100 off various models with deals from $299. Free shipping is available for all. Today’s deal is $1 less than our previous mention on the entry-level configurations and in-line with our highlighted deals over the last few months. With WWDC well under way and new watchOS features en route, now is a great time to upgrade at a significant discount.

iPhone XS Max is nearly $500 off

Today only, Woot offers Apple’s iPhone XS Max 512GB unlocked for $850. Today’s offer is down from the original $1,349 price tag. As a comparison, Apple is charging $1,099 for a refurbished model and today’s deal is $50 less than our previous mention.

Save up to $700 on MacBook Pro

B&H is taking up to $700 off a selection of Apple’s previous-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro and Air priced from $899. One highlight is on the MacBook Pro 2.4GHz/16GB/256GB at $1,379. Down from its $1,799 price tag, today’s offer is good for a $620 discount, beats the Amazon all-time low by $20, and is one of the best discounts to date. Powered by an i5 processor, Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro touts a Retina display, Touch Bar, and four Thunderbolt 3 ports. There’s also 16GB of RAM and 256GB of solid-state storage, making it a notable option for everything from web browsing to video editing and more.

G-Technology 10TB USB-C Hard Drive at $280

B&H offers the G-Technology 10TB G-DRIVE USB-C Desktop Hard Drive for $280. Down from its $330 going rate, today’s offer is $38 under Amazon’s competing price drop and marks the lowest we’ve seen this year. The USB 3.0 model is available for the same price, as well. Sporting an aluminum housing that’ll blend right in with the rest of your Apple setup, G-DRIVE touts USB-C connectivity that yields up to 195MB/s transfer speeds. It can deliver 45W of power to a connected machine, as well. 

Twelve South’s BookBook Case for $70

Amazon is offering the Twelve South BookBook V2 for MacBook for $70. That’s $30 off the typical rate there and beats the lowest price we have tracked by $8. This Twelve South offering makes it a cinch to class up a 15-inch MacBook Pro. It offers a vintage book look and sports enough room to stow 15 to 20-sheets of paper underneath your laptop. You’ll also stand to benefit from a thick layer of protection that’s ready to absorb impacts.
