Today’s best deals include the latest iPad Pro, official Apple Watch bands, and Sony’s AirPods competitors. Hit the jump for all of our top picks in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Latest iPad Pros hit new all-time lows
Amazon offers the latest 11-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi 256GB at $850. That’s down $49 from the regular going rate and a new Amazon all-time low. The larger 12.9-inch Wi-Fi 128GB model is also being discounted to $949 as part of today’s sale from its usual $999 price tag. That’s another all-time low. Today’s deals match our previous mentions, as well. Finally, you can save on the 12.9-inch Wi-Fi 256GB configuration at $1,040 (Reg. $1,099).
Apple’s 2020 iPad Pro features a new camera system with 12 and 10MP lenses and LiDAR scanner support on the back. Face ID is another standout here, doing away with the physical home button for an even sleeker design. USB-C connectivity, 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 support, and up to 10-hours of battery life round out the list of notable specs.
Official Apple Watch bands see rare discounts
Amazon is currently offering various official Apple Watch Bands on sale with 20% off or more. Free shipping is available for all. Our top pick is the Pride Edition model at $43. You’d typically pay $49 for these Sport Loop Bands. This is the first discount we’ve seen since the spring and the second-best offer we’ve tracked all-time.
Show your support with a Pride Edition band made of nylon. First released back at WWDC 2019, we found it to be a fun combination of the original and recently updated version in our hands-on review. The Sport Band version is also on sale today for $40 from the usual $49 price tag.
Sony WF-1000XM3 ANC Earbuds at $178
Amazon currently offers the Sony WF-1000XM3 Noise Canceling Truly Wireless Earbuds for $178. Down from its $228 going rate, today’s offer matches the second-best price we’ve seen to date and comes within $8 of our previous mention for the all-time low. Delivering a truly wireless design with “industry leading” noise cancellation, Sony’s WF-1000XM3 earbuds pack upwards of 24-hours of battery life per charge. Plus when you’re in a bind, just a few minutes on the charger equates to an hour and a half of listening. Other notable features like touchpad controls, and adaptive sound control make these a compelling option. We found that to be the case in our hands-on review.
WD 1TB My Passport USB-C SSD at $150
Amazon is currently offering the Western Digital 1TB My Passport Portable Solid-State Drive for $150. Typically fetching $200, today’s offer is $20 under our previous mention, amounts to 25% in savings, and marks a new Amazon all-time low. Having just been released at the end of last month, WD’s latest portable SSD packs up to 1,050MB/s transfer speeds thanks to its built-in NVMe drive. There’s also out of the box Mac connectivity with USB-C in tow alongside rugged housing that can withstand 6.5-foot drops. WD rounds out the notable features here with a shock- as well as vibration-resistant casing and a 5-year warranty for added peace of mind.
Aukey 1080p webcams from $36
Aukey’s official Amazon storefront is currently offers its Autofocus 1080p Webcam for $50. Down from its usual $60 going rate, today’s offer is the lowest we’ve seen since February and marks the second-best to date. Aukey’s 1080p webcam will surely be an upgrade over your Mac’s built-in iSight camera. Another notable feature here is the built-in autofocus functionality as well as a pair of noise-reducing microphones to help filter out unwanted noise. Pairing over USB, it also delivers a clip-on design to fit into just about any setup. Shop more from $36 right here.
