HomePod mini hits best price of the year at $65 in refurb sale
Marking one of the first chances of the year to outfit your Siri setup with Apple’s compact smart speaker, eBay today is wrapping up the work week by marking down the HomePod mini. Available in all five colors at $65 in like-new refurbished condition, today’s offer drops from the usual $99 going rate. It’s marking the best price of the year at $2 under our previous refurbished mention from January and arrives with 32% in overall savings.
Arriving with the fabric-covered design in the recently refreshed colorway, HomePod mini delivers its latest smart speaker experience that brings Siri, Apple Music, and Thread support into your setup. There’s a touchpad at the top that not only indicates when Siri is listening but also lets you adjust audio playback with just a tap. You’ll also find Apple’s new U1 chip that allows for quick music handoff from an iPhone 14. Get a closer look in our coverage.

Belkin’s latest 15W MagSafe chargers refuel your whole Apple kit
Amazon is now offering Belkin’s 15W Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 MagSafe Charging Pad for $127.

We’ve seen pricing fall this low before courtesy of sitewide Belkin sales, though it has been a few months. And in any case, you’re looking at the best prices of the year overall too.
As the latest 3-in-1 charging station from Belkin, this new MagSafe offering arrives with a main 15W magnetic pad in the center that is geared towards refueling your shiny new iPhone 14, as well as previous-generation iPhone 12 or 13 series handset.
