All of today’s best deals are headlined by $199 off 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro models at Amazon all-time lows. That’s alongside a rare chance to save on Belkin’s new 3-in-1 MagSafe charging stand at $127 and Apple’s M1 MacBook Pro at $449 off. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
M1 iPad Pro all-time lows arrive at $199 off
Amazon is now starting off the week by dropping prices on Apple’s latest 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro by an extra $99 at checkout. The savings kick off with the 128GB Wi-Fi model, which now rests at an $900 all-time low. That’s down from the usual $1,099 price tag, beats our previous mention by $99, and is a rare chance to score this kind of $199 discount. The same savings apply to higher capacity models, as we detail right here.
Apple’s latest iPad Pro provides the most compelling experience yet from iPadOS with a long list of notable features, headlined by 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 Apple’s newer and less capable iPadOS device won’t cut it, today’s price cuts make it a little more affordable to step up to the pro side of the lineup. Dive into our hands-on review.
