Apple’s beloved and compact iPad mini 6 now $99 off
Starting off the week, Amazon is now rolling out a chance to save on Apple’s latest iPad mini 6 after stock shortages have made this one evaporate from store shelves. Available in two different colorways, iPad mini 6 Wi-Fi 64GB models now start at $400. That’s down from the usual $499 going rate and matching our previous mention from over a month ago. It’s been largely out of stock since that previous early December mention, and comes within $1 of the all-time low.
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, 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, leaning into just how good this iPad mini deal is.
Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad is an even better value with $79 discount
Arriving at its lowest price yet, Apple’s most affordable iPadOS experience is now an even better buy and joins the iPad mini deal above. Thanks to this offer going live at Best Buy, Apple’s 10.2-inch iPad Wi-Fi 64GB is now sitting at $249.99 shipped. Normally fetching $329, you’re looking at $79 in savings alongside a new all-time low. This is well below the previous mention that matches the Black Friday pricing at $269, with today’s offer taking another $19 off to score that best-ever discount.
While not the latest model to hit the iPadOS lineup, the 10.2-inch model on sale today is still the most affordable option on shelves right now and comes powered by the A13 Bionic chip that’s said to be 20% faster than its predecessor. As for how Apple is applying all that extra power, you’ll enjoy additional features like True Tone support for the 10.2-inch screen alongside Center Stage in the new 12MP ultrawide camera that automatically adjusts the crop and zoom of your selfie camera depending on who and where they are in the shot.

Anker kicks off the week with up to 44% off 1-day Gold Box sale
Amazon is discounting an assortment of Anker chargers, power banks, and smartphone accessories starting at $20. Amongst all of the offers, our top pick has the Anker Nano II 65W GaN USB-C charger marked down to $37. You’d more regularly pay $55, with today’s offer stacking up to a new all-time low. The 32% price cut is well below previous mentions, with our last offer landing at $45 last fall.
Featuring a pair of USB-C ports, the GaN charger arrives with 65W of juice to dish out to two devices at once. It can handle powering everything from an iPhone or Pixel smartphone to MacBooks, Chromebooks, and any other devices in-between. The folding plug form-factor keeps this wall adapter managable in even some of the more compact everyday carries, too.
Apple’s 14-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro now $400 off
Best Buy is offering the first chance in several months to save on Apple’s flagship 14-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro. Dropping the 512GB capacity down to $1,599 shipped, you’re looking at a match of the best price to date at $400 off. This is $1 below our previous mention, which arrived back over Black Friday. It hasn’t gone on sale since, and is a notable solution for starting off 2023 with a fresh new machine.
Delivering Apple’s most capable portable machines to date as of now, the higher-end M1 Pro series still manages to beat out the more recent M2 chips with an even more capable feature set. Everything starts with the improved 14-inch Liquid Retina XDR 120Hz Display that’s backed by the higher-end chip. Then you’ll find a 10-core CPU, up to 17-hour battery life, and the triumphant return of MagSafe charging all packed into an updated frame. And with no concrete news on when we may see an M2 update, today’s discount is still as notable of a chance to save as it gets. See why it was our Apple product of the year.
DJI’s just-released Mini 3 quadcopter sees first discount to $499
Back in December, DJI launched its latest quadcopter, taking aim at a new generation of drone pilots, thanks to the DJI Mini 3 and its more affordable price tag. Today we’re seeing the first chance to save go live courtesy of the Drone Superstore eBay storefront. Right now, the DJI Mini 3 drops down to $499 in refurbished condition with a full two-year eBay warranty attached. This is down from the usual $559 that it just launched with last month while delivering $60 in savings. It’s a new all-time low and the very first chance to save on an all-new release.
As the latest entry-level drone from DJI, its new Mini 3 steps up to deliver 4K HDR video recording from its onboard camera that can convert between your standard horizontal aerial videography and capturing vertical videos perfect for sharing to social media. Flight time is also seeing a boost up to 51 minutes while still packing all of the usual object avoidance and intelligent flight features into a design that weighs in at under 249 grams. Get a better idea of what to expect over at DroneDJ.
