Friday’s best deals have now been gathered down below, headlined by the certified refurbished 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro. Alongside that $559 in savings, Apple’s AirPods Pro are also seeing a solid $75 price drop landing at $174 shipped via Amazon. From there, we are tracking deals on the latest MacBook Pro machines and more. Head below for a closer look at all of today’s best iPad Pro, AirPods, and MacBook deals in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break. 

Save up to $559 on certified refurbished Apple 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pros today

Best Buy now offering the Geek Squad Refurbished Apple 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro 512GB for $839.99 shipped. Normally fetching $1,399, today’s offer is delivering a rare chance to save on a renewed model with a steep $559 in savings attached. We have hardly seen new condition discounts on the flagship iPadOS machine over the past several months, making this all-time low discount even more compelling.

Apple’s latest iPad Pro provides the most compelling experience yet from iPadOS with a long list of notable features headlined by a Liquid Retina XDR display with 1,600 nits of peak brightness and ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate. That’s of course alongside an M1 chip to power the experience which is backed by Thunderbolt connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Apple Pencil support, and Face ID. So if Apple’s newer and less-capable iPadOS device won’t cut it, today’s price cuts make it a little more affordable to step up to the pro side of the lineup. Includes a 90-day warranty. Dive into our hands-on review for more. 

Apple’s AirPods Pro with refreshed MagSafe charging case now $75 off

Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest AirPods Pro with the refreshed MagSafe Charging Case at $174 shipped. Regularly $249 directly from Apple and elsewhere, this is $75 off, about $6 below our previous mention, and the lowest price we can find. Today’s deal is among the lowest we have tracked in 2022 and within $4 of the limited Prime Day offer. 

The recently-refreshed AirPods Pro package delivers much of the same experience as the original set alongside the updated charging case with 24 hours of playback and MagSafe action. That’s on top of the usual wireless Qi-style and wired Lightning charging that come along with the active noise cancellation, Hey Siri, and transparency mode.

All-new M2 MacBook Pro 512GB with 24GB RAM $150 off

While solid deals are still live on the base configurations from $1,149, B&H is now offering Apple’s all-new M2 MacBook Pro 512GB with the upgraded 24GB of unified RAM for $1,749 shipped. This particular configuration will run you $1,899 directly from Apple with today’s offering delivering $150 in savings. As a side note, you won’t find the 24GB of RAM option available as part of the official Amazon price drops. Having just launched last month, the all-new M2 MacBook Pro features Apple’s latest 10-Core GPU, 16-Core Neural Engine, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and with today’s option, a whole lot of RAM. The 13.3-inch 2560 by 1600 Retina IPS display is joined by a Force Touch trackpad as well as the FaceTime HD 720p camera and the backlit Magic Keyboard.

Pad & Quill MagSafe leather iPhone 13 wallet cases from $36

While iPhone 14 is right around the corner now, folks looking to stick with their higher-end 13 series will want to check out today’s price drop from Pad & Quill. The brand now has its LeatherSafe Pocket Book for Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max model marked down from $45.45. However, you can knock the prices down to $36 and $39 respectively in this sale. This is a regularly up to $90 leather case that is now more than 50% off the going rate.

As per usual with Pad & Quill’s handcrafted leather goods, the LeatherSafe Pocket Book features full-grain American leather that “ages beautifully with a rich patina” alongside marine-grade, UV-resistant, nylon stitching and a series of slots for cards and cash. The combo wallet case also features a cut out in the back to support MagSafe charging right through its folio-style sheath. Get a closer look in our launch coverage as well. 

This vintage leather Apple Watch band is just $13

FEIXII (100% positive feedback in the last 90 days) via Amazon’s Lightning deals is now offering the SUNFWR Vintage Leather Apple Watch Band in multiple colorways from $13. This deal will be live for another 8 hours or until stock runs out. Regularly $19, this is more than 30% off the going rate and among the lowest prices we have tracked on several of the color options. While it might not be one of those high-end options, it certainly looks more premium than it costs with a “genuine leather” build in tow. Compatible with all generations of Apple Watch (42, 44, and 45mm), you’ll find a softer suede on the inside as well as a 3-way metal clasp on the buckle end of things.
