OtterBox iPhone 11 cases keep your new device as safe as possible

Bowers & Wilkins Formation Flex arrives as HomePod competitor with AirPlay 2

Today Bowers & Wilkins is unveiling its new AirPlay-enabled HomePod competitor, the Formation Flex. This speaker joins the brand’s existing lineup of Formation products with a smaller footprint and support for Apple’s wireless music streaming medium. Bowers & Wilkins previously marked its multi-room audio line as a proprietary way to take on Sonos. However, the addition of AirPlay 2 takes it on a head-on collision with HomePod, despite a nearly $200 higher price tag overall. Given that Sonos One offers AirPlay 2 support for over 50% less, B&W is likely playing to a certain crowd for its new Formation Flex. Hit the jump for additional details on today’s release.

Following today’s Keynote address, Apple has updated its refurbished storefront with several price drops and new listings. The most notable savings can be found on previous-generation iPhone and iPad models. Apple Watch Series 3 is also seeing reduced pricing. As always, this is a great way to save further on Apple devices, as each listing comes with a full warranty, original accessories, and eligibility for Apple Care. Many of today’s price drops are reflected on legacy products, including iPhone 7 and 8 along with the 6th-generation iPad. Free shipping is available in each instance, with many of today’s deals taking an extra $100 or more off yesterday’s prices. More below.
