Today’s best deals include $100 off Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, plus iPhone and Apple Watch discounts, and a new Anker sale. Hit the jump for all that and more in Friday’s edition of the 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Drop $100 from Apple’s latest M1-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro
Amazon offers Apple’s M1-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro with 512GB of storage for $1,399. That’s a $100 savings from the regular going rate and a match of the best we’ve seen at Amazon. Apple’s new MacBook Pros feature the brand’s first silicon chips, which promises a “giant leap in CPU, GPU, and machine learning performance.” This model offers up to 20 hours of battery life, the best ever for a MacBook Pro, 8GB worth of RAM, and 512GB worth of solid-state storage. You’ll also find two Thunderbolt 3 ports on this model.
iPhone and Apple Watch deals from $100
Today only, Woot is offering various refurbished iPhone and Apple Watch models from $100. You can pick up the iPhone XS from $380. That’s the second-best price we’ve tracked and down from the new condition starting price of $999. Each device offers a 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 discounts iPhone and Android essentials
Anker has a fresh batch of deals over on its Amazon storefront this morning. Our top pick is Anker’s 10W PowerWave Pad for $9. That’s a 35% savings from the regular going rate and the best offer we’ve tracked over the last half-year. With nearly every smartphone supporting wireless charging on the market today, there’s notable demand for fast wireless chargers. This model from Anker sports a pad-style design with charging speeds up to 10W.
Apple Watch Series 6/SE up to $250 off
Verizon Wireless currently offers a pair Apple Watch Series 6 and SE promotions which when combined, can take up to $250 off your purchase. Those looking to pick up a new iPhone alongside an Apple Watch can save $150 over the 24-month service plan. Plus, those willing to trade-in a previous-generation Apple Watch can benefit from an additional $100 in savings. All of that adds up to score you one of Apple’s latest wearables for as little as $80. Verizon also throws in a 6-month Fitness+ subscription, as well.
Apple Watch Series 6 delivers the brightest always-on display yet on top of a new blood/oxygen sensor. On the other hand, Apple Watch SE features an even more value-packed design that ditches the higher-end sensor, but still has much of the same fitness tracking functionality.
Aqara’s HomeKit Secure Video Camera at $59
Aqara via Amazon is offering its GH2 HomeKit Secure Video Camera for $59. Usually fetching $70, today’s offer comes within $4 of the holiday mention, is still one of the first times on sale, and marks the third-best discount to date. Alongside integrating with the rest of Aqara’s smart home accessories thanks to a built-in Zigebee hub, the GH2 camera supports 1080p recording with local microSD card storage. There’s also integration with Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video standard, allowing you to store footage in iCloud and take advantage of facial recognition.
