Weâ€™re how halfway through yet another work week, and all of todayâ€™s best deals are now flowing in for Wednesday. Headlining the savings, Appleâ€™s all-new 10.9-inch iPad sees some of the first discounts yet from $399 all-time lows and is now joined by the best pricing yet on Apple Watch SE 2. And last but not least, Appleâ€™s latest AirPods 3 hit $110 in a Grade A refurb sale. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latestÂ 9to5ToysÂ Lunch Break.
Appleâ€™s all-new 10.9-inch iPad sees first discounts
After seeing the first discount go live onÂ Appleâ€™s just-released 11-inch M2 iPad ProÂ last week, weâ€™re now tracking the first discounts on theÂ latest 10.9-inch iPad. Going live at several retailers, B&H is kicking things off by offering the entry-levelÂ Wi-Fi 64GB model forÂ $399. Down from the usual $449 price tag, this discount is $50 below what youâ€™d payÂ at AmazonÂ right now and delivering a new all-time low. Those who want a cellular model can also drop the priceÂ down toÂ $579Â for the 64GB configuration at Amazon.Â
Appleâ€™sÂ latest 10.9-inch iPadÂ was just refreshed last month with a more colorful design and more mid-range specs that make this quite the compelling alternative to theÂ more Pro side of the lineup. Powered by the A14 Bionic chip, the whole experience is centered around a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display backed by True Tone. Then packed within that new form-factor are many of the staples weâ€™ve come to expect like Touch ID in the power button, a 12MP UltraWide camera with Center Stage that now arrives in a design thatâ€™s dedicated more towards landscape usage, as well as Wi-Fi and 5G for more flexible connectivity. Get a closer look inÂ our launch coverage.
Apple Watch SE 2 delivers an even more affordable fitness companion
If theÂ Apple Watch Series 8 all-time lowsÂ that just went live still arenâ€™t affordable enough, Amazon is makingÂ Appleâ€™s more budget-focused wearableÂ an even better value. Now dropping theÂ new Apple Watch SE 2 GPS 45mmÂ down toÂ $240, todayâ€™s offer marks only the third chance to save since launching in September. This is down from the usual $279 price tag and also matching the all-time low at $39 off.Â
Apple Watch SE 2 arrives as aÂ more affordable takeÂ on the companyâ€™s flagship wearables with much of the same design. Running watchOS 9, youâ€™re looking at the ability to track everything from runs to heart rate and sleep, with a new onboard compass also supplementing the fitness journey. Thereâ€™s also crash detection and more packed into the Retina Display-backed build with added water resistance for handling daily wear in the shower or tagging along on swims.
Appleâ€™s latest AirPods 3 hit $110 in Grade A refurb sale
Today only, Woot is discountingÂ Appleâ€™s latest AirPods in Grade A refurbished conditions, headlined by theÂ newest AirPods 3 atÂ $110. Normally fetching $179, todayâ€™s offer makes for a rare chance to score Appleâ€™s latest earbuds in any case. Theyâ€™ve been completely out of stock on Amazon for nearly a month and even when there are units up for sale, youâ€™ll be paying retail instead of todayâ€™s $69 off discounted price.
Appleâ€™sÂ latest earbudsÂ just launched back in October of last year and most notably arrive with a redesigned casing that takes a page out of the pro versionâ€™s book. While youâ€™re ditching the silicone eartips,Â AirPods 3Â arrive with much of the same Spatial Audio support, as well as added water-resistance for tagging along on runs or workouts. Plus, thereâ€™s the nifty new MagSafe charging case that provides 30 hours of listening to complete the package. Includes a 90-day warranty. Head below for more.
