Heading into the weekend, all of today’s best deals are headlined by the latest 10.2-inch iPad at $50 off. That’s alongside the ongoing AirPods Pro discount to $175, and the iPad-compatible Logitech Crayon at $58. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Save $50 on Apple’s latest 10.2-inch iPad

Following ongoing discounts on two of the higher-end iPadOS experiences going live earlier this week, the savings have now arrived on the latest 10.2-inch iPad. Dropping at Amazon, you can score the 9th-generation iPad Wi-Fi 256GB for $429. Normally fetching $479, today’s offer amounts to $50 in savings while marking an Amazon all-time low. We saw it once before at this price courtesy of Walmart, as well. 

Sure this may be Apple’s entry-level iPad, but it still packs notable features like the new A13 Bionic chip that’s said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. That extra power enters in some additional features like True Tone support for the 10.2-inch screen alongside Center Stage in the new 12MP ultrawide camera that automatically adjusts the crop and zoom of your selfie camera depending on who and where they are in the shot. Get a closer look in our launch coverage.

You can still save $74 on AirPods Pro with MagSafe charging

Amazon is now offering the just-released Apple AirPods Pro with MagSafe Charging Case for $175. Normally fetching $249, today’s offer is delivering the first discount in over a month at $74 off while matching the lowest price of the year. We’ve seen it drop a bit lower back on Black Friday, but this is the best price to date otherwise.

Delivering everything the original pair of Apple’s flagship earbuds did, the recently-refreshed AirPods Pro pack ANC alongside a companion transparency mode, Spatial Audio support, and Hey Siri. Packed into the same form-factor as before, the refreshed charging case will yield 24 hours of playback, but now supports MagSafe on top of its original Qi and Lightning options. 

Logitech Crayon works with any of Apple’s latest iPads

Amazon is currently offering the latest Logitech Crayon for iPad at $58. Down from its usual $70 price tag, you’re looking at the steepest discount in over two months while beating our previous mention from back in February by just a penny.

This new grey version of Logitech’s popular Crayon stylus launched last year and arrives with support for all of Apple’s most recent iPads. Ranging from the entry-level 10.2-inch model to higher-end iPad Pro configurations and more, this delivers Apple Pencil features for less – refueling over a built-in Lightning port, it offers palm rejection features on top of fast-pairing right to your device. You can get a better idea of what to expect in our review of the original model, too.

Apple TV Siri Remote with refreshed design now $50

Amazon is now offering the latest Apple TV Siri Remote for $54. Delivering a new all-time low at the retailer, this is $1 below our previous mention and the first notable discount of the year. Also available at Verizon for $50, matching the lowest price overall to date. Arriving as the latest companion to the Apple TV lineup, the new Siri Remote refreshes the home theater controls with an all-new design that ditches the touchscreen-enabled offerings of the past. If you’re still rocking one of Apple’s previous-generation set top boxes, this is a great way to upgrade the experience without replacing the entire unit. Get all of the details over in our hands-on coverage.

Philips Hue mix and match sale delivers rare 15% discounts

To end the work week, Philips Hue is launching a new mix and match sale, in the process taking 15% off a collection of its popular smart light bulbs, ambient lightstrips and lamps, plus more. We have a more detailed breakdown below, but in order to lock-in the savings you’ll need to head to this landing page and add one item from each category to your cart. The discount will then be applied at checkout. Ranging from its standard color light bulbs to portable lamps, bias lighting for behind the TV and more, everything pairs to your setup over Bluetooth or Zigbee. We’re tracking some of the first markdowns of the year on some of the rarely-discounted Hue gear, all of which will work with HomeKit, Alexa, and Assistant. Head below for all of the highlights.
