B&H is clearing out previous-generation iPad Pro models with up to $500 off both 11- and 12.9-inch configurations. You’ll find various Wi-Fi and cellular models discounted throughout this sale, delivering the largest cash discounts we’ve tracked to date by $100.

Notable features here include a Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display with ProMotion, True Tone, and wide color. Plus, you can count on Face ID, 12MP camera, four speakers, and up to 10-hours of battery life, all of which are powered by Apple’s A12X Bionic chip.

iPad Pro Smart Keyboards are on sale

Amazon is currently offering Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio for its previous-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro at $160. Down from its $199 going rate, today’s offer is $10 under our previous mention and a new all-time low.

Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio supplements your iPad Pro with a physical keyboard and multi-angle stand. Throwing Bluetooth out the window, this one uses the built-in Smart Connector and then magnetically snaps onto the back of your tablet. In between typing sessions, it can fold into a cover to keep your device safe, as well.

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.

iPhone XS Max offers a 6.5-inch Super Retina display with OLED HDR panels. Inside, you’ll find Apple’s A12 Bionic chip with support for FaceID. There are 12 and 7MP cameras alongside support for wireless charging on the long list of notable specs.

Anker Soundcore Liberty Air Earbuds are $43

AnkerDirect via Amazon offers its Soundcore Liberty Air Truly Wireless Earbuds in both colors for $43. That’s down $30 or more from the regular going rate and delivers one of the best prices we’ve tracked to date. Our previous mention was closer to $50.

While AirPods remain to be the cream of the crop in this category, Anker’s Liberty Airs offer plenty of features to like. You’ll get a familiar design alongside up to 5-hours of battery life. That number goes to 20-hours with the included carrying and charging case. You’ll find integrated touch controls on the earbuds themselves, with the ability to answer calls, handle playback, and adjust volume. We loved them in our hands-on review.

JVC’s 6.8-inch CarPlay Receiver at $380

Best Buy’s official eBay storefront offers the JVC 6.8-inch CarPlay and Android Receiver (V850BT) for $380. Also available at Best Buy. Slashing $100 off the going rate, today’s offer matches our previous mention from back in January and matches the all-time low. Featuring a 6.8-inch touchscreen display, JVC’s CarPlay and Android Auto receiver is a must-have upgrade to your ride if you’re looking for enhanced smartphone integration. It notably makes keeping an eye on directions, music playback, and more a breeze while commuting.
