Today’s best deals include a new batch of iPhone 12/Pro accessories on sale from Anker, plus Apple’s 5K Retina iMac is discounted, and you can save big on iPod touch. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Anker outfits your new iPhone 12/Pro

With new iPhones slated to arrive this week, Anker is rolling out a new sale this morning with essentials for your device. This new promotion at Amazon is headlined by Anker’s Lightning LED Flash at $40. That’s a 20% savings from the regular going rate and the first discount we’ve tracked so far. After first being released at the end of last year, this accessory has held steady in price. Lightning connectivity brings another level of functionality to your iPhone. You can count on 10,000 photos on a single charge, which is a nice feature in that it doesn’t draw from your iPhone’s battery while in use.

Apple’s upgraded 5K iMac

Amazon offers the latest Apple 27-inch Retina 5K iMac 3.8GHz/8GB/512GB for $2,199. That’s a $100 savings off the regular going rate, matching our previous mention, as well as the Amazon all-time low price. Note: Currently backordered to the end of the month. 

Apple’s latest Retina iMacs feature a 27-inch 5K display that’s backed by a 3.8GHz Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT Graphics, and 8GB worth of RAM. On this specific model, you’ll receive 512GB worth of SSD storage. Other notable features include two Thunderbolt 3 ports and four USB-A ports.

iPod touch deals deliver new all-time lows

Woot offers the 6th Generation Apple’s iPod touch with 32GB of storage for $150, which is down from the usual $199 price tag. Upgrade to the 128GB model for $200 (Reg. $299). Today’s deals are $20 under our previous mention and the best we’ve seen. Free shipping is available for Prime members; otherwise, a $6 delivery fee will apply. Today’s deals are the best we’ve tracked on this iPod touch model to date.

Notable features here include a 4-inch display that’s powered by Apple’s A8 chip. You can also count on an 8MP camera and 1080p HD recording as well. It’s a great option for the kids who don’t need a full-on iPhone with cellular connectivity.

Save $151 on Apple’s 2018 Mac mini

Amazon is currently offering Apple’s previous-generation Mac mini 3.6GHz/8GB/128GB for $648. Down from its original $799 price tag that you’ll pay for the latest model still, today’s offer is $151 in savings and matches the all-time low last set in August. If you’re looking for a more affordable way to get up and running with macOS, this is it. Mac mini delivers a compact footprint that won’t take up much room on your desk with a 3.6GHz processor to power it all. There’s also four Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as two USB 3.1 Type A slots, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, and more. For a more in-depth look, swing by our hands-on review.

Nike-style Apple Watch band from $7

Amazon offers the Ad Master Nike-style Apple Watch Band in various colors and sizes from $7. As a comparison, it typically goes for $10. Today’s deal is $0.20 under our previous mention, as well. You’ll get a nearly identical design as the official version, but shy of any Nike logos. Still, if you’re interested in this style of the band, it’s a great option and it’s compatible with all Apple Watch models. There are multiple sizes and lengths available to fit different wrists, and of course, the usual perforated design we’ve come to know on these Nike-style sport bands.
