Black Friday in July Apple sale goes live at Best Buy
Best Buy is celebrating Black Friday in July by rolling into the weekend with its latest three-day sale. Now through Sunday, you’ll be able to score holiday-worthy discounts on a collection of Apple releases, smart home tech, TVs, and much more. Headlining all of the price cuts is Apple’s Magic Keyboard for 12.9-inch iPad Pro at $199. Normally fetching $349, you’re looking at the best price of the year, with today’s offer matching the all-time low we saw back over the Black Friday season last year.
Apple’s Magic Keyboard brings an improved typing experience to your iPad centered around a unique floating hinge design that allows for an adjustable viewing angle. That’s alongside Smart Connector support and a built-in USB-C port that’s dedicated for supplying power to your device. There’s also backlit keys and a built-in trackpad that pairs with iPadOS for a compelling on-the-go workstation. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.
Grab an iPhone 12 mini at up to $129 off
Woot is currently offering the unlocked Apple iPhone 12 mini in certified refurbished condition starting at $580. Delivery will run you another $6 otherwise. Normally fetching $699, you’re looking at $119 in savings, with today’s offer beating our previous discount by $15 to mark a new all-time low. There are also higher-end capacities with up to $129 in savings, as well.
iPhone 12 mini arrives as Apple’s latest take on a more compact smartphone centered around a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR display. Inside, you’ll get all of the power of the larger iPhone 12 series handsets thanks to the A14 Bionic processor, which comes backed by 64GB of storage, 5G, and Face ID. Returning to that refreshed form-factor, there’s now an updated design reminiscent of the beloved iPhone 4 that’s complemented by Ceramic Shield glass on the back and a dual sensor camera array. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.
Apple’s MagSafe Charger is down to $30
Woot offers Apple’s new MagSafe Charger for $30. Normally fetching $39, you’re looking at one of the best discounts to date, with today’s offer coming within cents of the all-time low and marking the best price in months for a new condition model.
If you picked up one of Apple’s latest handsets last fall or anytime since, the new MagSafe Charger is certainly worth bringing into your kit. As the brand’s take on wireless charging, this accessory elevates the experience by providing all of the perks of a cable with the convenience of not having to plug anything in. It magnetically snaps onto the back of your device in order to provide 15W of power to an iPhone 12 series handset.
Apple Watch SE GPS + Cellular nears 2021 low at $290
Amazon is offering the Apple Watch SE 40mm GPS + Cellular in multiple styles for $290. For comparison, it has a list price of $329 and today’s deal comes within $1 of the 2021 low that we’ve tracked. You’ll find that the Apple Watch SE is at the heart of Apple’s wearable ecosystem. Sure, it’s not the company’s flagship Series 6, but it offers many similar features like the Retina OLED display, heart rate monitoring, sleep tracking, and even multiple workout modes. The swim-proof design allows you to get it wet, and with built-in cellular connectivity means you can leave your phone at home while still tracking a bike ride and enjoying your favorite music.

Apple Pencil 2 elevates your iPad Pro experience at $104
Verizon Wireless currently offers the second-generation Apple Pencil for $104. Down from the usual $129 going rate, today’s offer amounts to a particularly rare price cut on the latest iPad accessory, beats our previous mention by $6, and matches the best price of the year. Redesigned for some of the latest iPads, the second-generation Apple Pencil improves on the original model with wireless charging, magnetic attachment, and a refreshed form-factor. Whether you’re looking to take notes, try your hand at crafting some digital art, or just want the precision of a stylus, Apple Pencil is a must-have for elevating your iPad experience.
