Halfway through the work week, and all of the best discounts are now going live on the Apple front. Today’s highlights start off with Apple’s official iPhone 13 Silicone MagSafe Case at $23, which is joined by much of the same style updates on Apple Watch with markdowns on in-house Sport Loop bands from $39. Plus, Satechi is taking 20% off new releases revealed back at CES to deliver some all-time lows. Hit the jump for all of the best deals and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Apple’s official iPhone 13 Silicone MagSafe Case hits $23 all-time low
Amazon is now offering Apple’s official iPhone 13 Silicone MagSafe Case for $23 in Abyss Blue. Shipping is free for Prime members or in orders over $25. While you’d more regularly pay $49, today’s offer amounts to 53% in savings as well as a new all-time low at Amazon. This is $5 under our previous mention and one of the first discounts in the past few months. The iPhone 13 Pro version is also down to $23, as well.
Keeping up the premium stylings of other official Apple cases, these silicone offerings protect your iPhone 13 series device with a soft-touch and grippy finish that comes in one of several styles. Alongside magnets that allow it to snap right onto the back of your device, there’s also support for Apple’s MagSafe charging passthrough, as well. So even if you’re not going to upgrade to Apple’s more recent iPhone 14 anytime soon, you can still enjoy the feel of a new handset by swapping in a new color.
Official Apple Watch Sport Loop discounts go live on Amazon
Amazon is now discounting an assortment of official Apple Watch Sport Loop Bands starting at $39. Available in several 45mm colorways, these are all down from $49 and marking some rare chances to save. The $10 price cuts are marking new all-time lows across some of the newer styles which have more recently been updated for Apple Watch Series 8.
Though while these bands are for Apple’s latest, they’re compatible with all 45/44/42 versions of the standard wearable, and even Apple Watch Ultra. Each one of the Sport Loops feature a 2-tone design comprised of a soft and lightweight woven fiber. Unlike the standard silicone offerings from Apple, this one touts a fully-adjustable band that makes it easy to find the perfect fit on your wrist.
- Nectarine/Peony 45mm: $40 (Reg. $49)
- Lavender Grey/Light Lilac: $42 (Reg. $49)
- Milk/Lemon Zest: $39 (Reg. $49)
Satechi takes 20% off new releases
Satechi is now offering another chance to lock-in discounts on the gear it just revealed back at the start of the year at CES 2023. Ranging from powerful charging stations to compact Thunderbolt 4 hubs, you’ll be able to save 20% off new releases. A favorite has the new Satechi 200W 6-Port Charging Station at $120. Down from $150, you’re looking at only the second chance to save and a match of the all-time low at $30 off. This power station from Satechi arrives with more than enough juice to top off anything your workstation can throw at it. Across all six USB-C PD slots is the 200W power output that can handle refueling everything from M2 Pro MacBooks, iPhones, and iPads to earbuds and other accessories. We further break down the experience in our launch coverage.
Satechi also now offers its just-released Thunderbolt 4 Slim Hub for $160. Normally fetching $200, you’re looking at an extension of the launch discount that was first on sale at the very start of the month. This is matching the all-time low and only the second chance to save $40. Sporting a 5-in-1 design, Satechi’s latest Thunderbolt 4 offering arrives with a compact design that really lets it live up to the slim naming scheme. The back of the device sports three full Thunderbolt 4 ports capable of driving a single 8K display or dual 4K monitors. Then on the front is the Thunderbolt 4 host connection that can dish out 60W of power to a connected MacBook, as well as a 10Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 port to connect any other peripherals. We break down what to expect from the experience further in our launch coverage.
ESR’s HaloLock MagSafe Ring grip doubles as a stand at $17
ESR’s official Amazon storefront is now offering its HaloLock MagSafe Ring for $17. Normally fetching $26, you’re looking at 35% in savings and only the second discount to date. This is $4 under the previous drop and a new all-time low to boot.
Arriving as one of the more capable MagSafe ring stands on the market, ESR’s take on the form-factor still arrives with all of the same iPhone 14 support for magnetically snapping onto the back of Apple’s latest handsets. This one has a unique unfolding design that gives you two different inner rings to hold onto or use for propping up your device. Everything is made of metal for a durable construction, including the dual-joint design, which comes in one of four colorways to complement your handset.
Satechi’s Mac mini USB-C dock hits $80
Satechi’s official Amazon storefront is offering its Mac mini Dock with SSD Enclosure for $80. Down 20% from its normal going rate at Amazon, today’s deal marks the second-best price that we’ve tracked and comes within $5 of the New Year’s sale that we saw earlier this month. Designed to work with Apple’s M1 Mac mini, this dock should also be compatible with the latest M2 model that just came out as well, though Apple’s spec page shows that there could be a very slight size difference between the two.
Either way, this dock is the perfect compliment to your compact Apple setup. It features front-mounted I/O like SD/microSD slots, three USB-A ports, a USB-C plug, and even 3.5mm audio. On top of that, there’s even a built-in M.2 SATA slot as well so you can add extra storage to your setup easily too. Want to learn more? Dive into our previous Tested with 9to5Toys to find out if this dock is right for you.
