Apple’s latest Magic Keyboard for 11-inch iPad Pro hits $210

Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest 11-inch Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro at $210. Available in both white and black styles, this is down from $299 in either case to deliver the best price of the year. This is the lowest we’ve seen since the summer of 2021 and arrives with $89 in savings at the third-best discount ever.

Designed for Apple’s latest iPad lineup, this Magic Keyboard works with all of the 11-inch variants of iPadOS device. Including the new M2 iPad Pro, as well as iPad Air 5 and previous-generation devices, it brings an improved typing experience into the mix thanks to a backlit keyboard. All of that comes packed into a signature floating hinge design that relies on Apple’s Smart Connector to pair with your device. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.

Apple’s M2 MacBook Air arrives before Christmas

If you missed out on the Black Friday pricing that had gone live last month on Apple’s latest M2 MacBook Air, there’s another chance to put it under the Christmas tree for less. Right now, Amazon is offering the 256GB model for $1,049 in all four colors. That’s down from the usual $1,199 price tag and matching the all-time low at $150 off. We’ve still only seen this price a handful of times at this point, with today’s offer arriving as one of the last times you’ll be able to lock-in delivery ahead of Christmas.

Apple’s all-new M2 MacBook Air comes powered by its latest in-house chip and pairs with a refreshed form-factor. The 13-inch Liquid Retina Display sports a 500-nit brightness to complete the P3 wide color support and pairs with a 1080p FaceTime camera with three-mic array and Spatial Audio-enabled speakers. Though the real highlight has to be the return of MagSafe charging, which pairs with other I/O like dual Thunderbolt ports. Learn more about the entry-level configuration’s performance.

Apple Watch Series 7 starts from $260 in 1-day Woot refurb sale

Today only, Woot has launched its latest refurbished sale on previous-generation Apple Watch models, putting some of the more recent offerings in the spotlight. Shipping is free for Prime members, with a $6 delivery fee applying otherwise. Our favorite from the sale has marked down Apple Watch Series 7 to as low as $260 for the 41mm GPS stylings. That’s down from the original $399 going rate and a match of the all-time low set just once before over Thanksgiving Week. The larger 45mm offering is now at $270, also on sale and down from the original $429 going rate.

While it’s not the all-new version, Apple Watch Series 7 still packs quite a punch for your fitness kit for far less than either of Apple’s latest. There’s a similar build centered around the brightest screen Apple makes, as well as all-day battery life backed by a fast charging mode for overnight wear. And while there’s no onboard temperature sensor like Series 8, you’ll still find onboard heart rate monitoring, the ability to keep tabs on blood oxygen levels, and even take ECGs. All with watchOS 9 at the center of the experience. Includes a 90-day warranty.

Put Apple’s compact iPad mini 6 under the tree with $99 in savings

Joining all of this week’s other best Apple deals, Amazon is now offering the latest iPad mini 6 Wi-Fi 64GB for $399.99 shipped. Down from $499, you’re looking at a match of the Black Friday discount, the second-best price at within $1 of the all-time low, and a rare chance to save thanks to stock shortages. Those who need cellular connectivity are also in luck with much of the same $99 discounts

Apple’s latest compact iPadOS experience arrives as the new iPad mini 6. It may be the smallest one in the lineup, but still delivers many of the signature features you’d expect like an edge-to-edge 8.3-inch Retina display and Apple Pencil 2 support. Throw in the A15 Bionic chip and Touch ID in the power button to complete the package. I’ve been a huge fan of the form-factor myself since picking one up last fall, though you don’t have to take just my word for it. Our hands-on review notes just how perfect its size is without sacrificing on performance, as well.
