Apple’s Magic Keyboards now $50 off for Black Friday

Joining all of the iPad discounts themselves, Amazon today is rolling out the very first chances to save on Apple’s latest Magic Keyboards since the new M2 devices dropped back in October as part of the best Thanksgiving Day deals. Starting with the 12.9-inch model, pricing drops down to $299 for both the white and black styles. You would more regularly pay $349, with today’s offer delivering a chance to save $50 for the first time since back at the beginning of September. This matches our previous mention and is one of the best prices ever. Designed for both of the latest iterations of 12.9-inch iPad Pro, including the new M2 and original M1 models, Magic Keyboard arrives with the accessory’s signature floating hinge design and Smart Connector support, as well as the dedicated USB-C charging port. The folio form-factor houses a backlit keyboard and the trackpad, which elevate the iPadOS experience in either black or white designs. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.

If you’re rocking the 11-inch version of Apple’s M2 or M1 iPad Pro, you can also take advantage of savings noted on the compatible Magic Keyboard. Right now, Amazon has the accessory marked down to $249 in both the black and white styles, which delivers the second-best discount to date at within $10 of the all-time low. Other than being designed for the smaller of Apple’s latest iPad Pros, as well as the new iPad Air 5, this one has all of the same features as the lead deal.

Apple’s latest M1 Mac mini 512GB goes on sale for first time in months

Amazon is now offering quite the rare chance to save on Apple’s latest M1 Mac mini. The popular compact macOS machine has largely been missing in action as far as price cuts go all fall, but now for Black Friday is dropping in price for the first time in several months. Discounting the 512GB model down to $749.99 shipped, you’re looking at the second-best price to date from its usual $899 going rate. This $149 price cut is the first we’ve seen since August, and arrives as a notable workstation upgrade at within $1 of the all-time low. 

Bringing Apple’s M1 chip to the desktop, its latest Mac mini is a great option for those who want a more affordable way to take macOS for a spin. Its compact footprint won’t take up space on your desk, but also lets you plug in a monitor of your choice for fitting in with your workstation’s demands. Its 512GB of internal storage is also backed by 8GB of RAM, as well as a pair of Thunderbolt ports and an HDMI output. And with a new M2 model nowhere to be found in the current lineup, this is the best option out there with such a compact footprint. Get a closer look in our launch coverage.
