Apple’s prev-gen. 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro now up to $549 off
After seeing its newer M2 counterpart go on sale, both Amazon and Best Buy are now tapping in to discount the now previous-generation 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro. Courtesy of both retailers, shipping is free across the board and you can score the best prices to date across the lineup. Leading the way is the Wi-Fi 1TB model, which now rests at a new all-time low of $1,250. That’s down from the original $1,799 price tag, undercuts our previous mention and Best Buy’s sale price by another $150, and marks the lowest we’ve ever seen at $549 off.
Even now that the new 2022 model has arrived, the now previous-generation iPad Pro still provides a compelling iPadOS experience centered around a Liquid Retina XDR display with 1,600 nits of peak brightness and ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate. That’s of course alongside an M1 chip to power the experience which is backed by Thunderbolt connectivity, Wi-Fi 6, Apple Pencil support, and Face ID. So if the differences between the new M2 and older M1 models aren’t all that important, today’s discount is a notable way to bring home a flagship tablet for far less. Dive into our hands-on review

Apple’s AirPods 3 with wired charging case falls to $140
Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest AirPods 3 with Wired Charging Case for $140. Normally fetching $169, today’s offer marks one of the first chances to save on the refreshed and more affordable version of Apple’s latest entry-level earbuds. The $29 discount arrives at a new all-time low, as well.
Apple’s latest earbuds originally launched back in October of last year and then were refreshed with a new wired-only charging case that takes much of the same page out of the pro version’s playbook as before. While you’re ditching the silicone eartips, AirPods 3 arrive with much of the same Spatial Audio support, as well as added water-resistance for tagging along on runs or workouts. There’s no MagSafe charging on this model, with only a Lightning port on the bottom to refuel.
Score an extra official Apple Watch Sport Band at $25
Amazon is now discounting a selection of Apple Watch Sport Bands in several colorways and sizes. Amongst all of the different styles we’ll breakdown below the fold, our top pick is the 45mm Starlight style at $25. Normally fetching $49, this is a new all-time low and also much like everything else below, is on sale for the very first time. Composed of a soft, breathable high-performance fluoroelastomer material, the official Apple Watch Sport Bands arrive in a variety of colors to either mix up the daily stylings of your wearable or refresh an aging option. Already ideal for working out and other tasks, there are Nike+ editions which are also on sale that double down on the fitness-focused design with compression-molded holes for added comfort. Check out all of the options here.

Previous-generation Apple TV 4K is a steal at $80 all-time low
We’ve seen just about every other popular streaming media player go on sale, and now Amazon is delivering the best price yet on Apple’s previous-generation Apple TV 4K in honor of Thanksgiving Week. Dropping to $80 for the 32GB model, this is well below the original $179 price tag and beating our previous mention by $19. It’s the best we’ve ever seen and the most affordable options out there right now to bring some of Apple’s streaming tech to the home theater.
This might not be the latest tvOS package, but the Apple TV 4K from last year still delivers some notable features for renovating the home theater at this price. Powered by the A12 Bionic chip, you’ll be able to enjoy 4K HDR playback with Dolby Vision over the HDMI 2.1 port with Wi-Fi 6 pairing with Ethernet connectivity. There’s of course all of the usual access to all of the popular streaming services, as well as Apple Arcade and Thread smart home support. Not to mention, the new display calibration feature that ensures content looks its best. Not to mention, you’re also getting the redesigned Siri Remote, as well. Get a closer look at our hands-on coverage.
LG’s just-released DualUp 16:18 Monitor hits $649
Amazon is now offering one of the very first chances to save on the just-released LG Dual Up Monitor. Just hitting the scene earlier this fall, the latest debut from the company arrives as its 28-inch 2560 x 2880 28MQ780-B display at the $649 sale price point. You’d more regularly pay $700, with today’s offer arriving at a new all-time low. This is one of the only markdowns so far and the best one yet at that at $51 off.
Arriving with a unique 16:18 aspect ratio, the new LG DualUp Monitor comes centered around a 28-inch panel that is effectively just a pair of 1440p display stacks on top of each other. Straight out of the 1990s, the vertical form-factor comes back from one of LG’s popular Ergo mounts for attaching to your desk and adjusting the height or position. Alongside its dual HDMI 2 ports, there’s also a USB-C slot that makes this ideal for MacBooks, especially thanks to its 90W power delivery capabilities. If you’re somehow not yet sold on the quirky form-factory, our hands-on review walks you through its place on your macOS desktop.
