Today’s best deals include the new B&H Cyber Week promotion, plus Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad is $299, and various Siri-enabled smart thermostats are on sale. Head below for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
B&H Cyber Week Apple sale
B&H has now launched its Cyber Week Apple Sale with deals on the latest iPad Pro models, select MacBooks, and more. B&H is currently taking up to $300 off current and previous-generation iPad Pro models. Specifically you can save $100 on 2020 listings and even more on iPad Pro that is a few years older. This is in line with the discounts we saw on Black Friday.
Apple’s 2020 iPad Pro features a new camera system with 12 and 10MP lenses and a LiDAR scanner support on the back. Face ID is another standout here, doing away with any physical buttons for an even sleeker design. USB-C connectivity, 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 support, and up to 10 hours of battery life round out the list of notable specs. Learn more in our hands-on review.
Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad returns to $299
Walmart offers the latest 10.2-inch iPad Wi-FI 32GB from Apple at $299. That’s down $30 from the regular going rate and the second-best offer we’ve tracked over the last month, topped only by a brief sale on Black Friday. Apple’s 8th-generation iPad sports a 10.2-inch Retina display with up to 128GB of storage. iPadOS delivers added functionality alongside support for Apple Pencil and more. You’ll find an 8MP camera on the back, 1.2MP lens on the front, plus a 10-hour battery on the inside. It’s a great option if you want a larger screen but don’t want to shell out the cash for Apple’s more high-end iPads.
Enjoy Siri-enabled heating
Amazon is currently offering the Emerson Sensi Touch HomeKit Thermostat for $116. Down from the $169 price tag it routinely fetches, today’s offer amounts to 32% in savings, beats our previous mention by $10, and marks a new Amazon low. With winter weather around the corner, now is your chance to upgrade to a Siri, Alexa, or Assistant controlled heating setup. Emerson’s Sensi Touch thermostat is compatible with all of the major smart home ecosystems and brings support for setting schedules as well as automations into the mix. Plus, there’s a built-in touchscreen for easily adjusting the temperature yourself.
Philips Hue up to 30% off sale
Philips Hue is launching a new Cyber Week sale today, discounting a selection of its popular smart lights, accessories, and more by as much as 30%. On top of straight price cuts, one of the more notable aspects of the sale is that you can lock-in further savings when picking up two select accessories. Headlining is a 2-pack of the Hue Tap Switch at $70. Usually selling for $50 each, today’s offer amounts to $30 in overall savings and a new 2020 low.
Bringing the Hue Tap into your existing setup makes it easy to turn on the lights and flip through scenes without getting a smartphone or voice assistant involved. It’s powered by kinetic energy, meaning you’ll never have to change batteries and has three customizable buttons.
Lockly Secure Plus Smart Lock boasts a fingerprint scanner
Amazon currently offers the Lockly Secure Plus Fingerprint Smart Lock for $199. It’s also available for the same price at Home Depot. Usually fetching up to $250 like you’ll find at Lowe’s, it goes for $230 direct with today’s offer saving you $31 and matches our previous mention for the second-best price to date. Outfitting your smart home with Lockly Secure Plus brings four different ways to unlock the front door. Its most unique way is with the built-in fingerprint sensor, but you’ll also find a touchscreen for entering pin codes, as well as iPhone and Android connectivity.
