All of today’s best deals are now live and headlined by holiday pricing returning on Apple’s official MagSafe chargers from $30. That’s alongside nearly all of Apple’s official iPhone 13 series cases on sale from $25, and a chance to put the latest iPad mini 6 under the tree with $99 in savings. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Tim Cook really wants you to buy Apple’s MagSafe chargers, now on sale from $30
After going on sale last month for Black Friday, Amazon today is back to offer holiday pricing on Apple’s lineup of MagSafe chargers. Shipping is free across the board. Headlining is the official 15W MagSafe Charger at $30. You’d more regularly pay $39 with today’s offer marking a chance to outfit one of Apple’s latest handsets with all of the unique MagSafe charging capabilities at a return to its previous Thanksgiving Week pricing. As the brand’s official take on wireless charging, this accessory elevates the experience by providing all of the perks of a cable with the convenience of not having to actually plug anything in. It magnetically snaps onto the back of your device in order to provide 15W of power to an iPhone 14, as well as previous-generation 13 or 12 series handset.
Also on sale ahead of the holiday season, Amazon currently offers the Apple MagSafe Battery Pack for $84.99. Normally fetching $99, this is one of the best prices to date at 15% off. While we saw it sell for $71 for a few days earlier in the fall, this is expected to be the best price cut of the holiday season here. Designed for both of Apple’s most recent iPhone 14, 13, and 12 series handsets, the official MagSafe Battery Pack provides some extra power while on-the-go. Magnetically attaching to your device, a new firmware update that went live earlier this year that allows it to dish out 7.5W of power from the internal battery. Then when the power bank is plugged into the wall with a USB-C cable, it will unlock the full 15W MagSafe charging speed. It has a slick white plastic shell that will work with everything from Apple’s mini handsets all the way up to its Pro Max releases. Dive into our first impressions post for a closer look.
Save on nearly all of Apple’s official iPhone 13 series cases from $25
Into the second half of the work week, Amazon is now discounting official iPhone 13 series MagSafe cases to some of the best prices to date. Arriving at new all-time lows or matching some of the best discounts yet, everything starts at $25 with free shipping across the board. Delivering cases for all four of Apple’s latest handsets, you’ll find covers in more premium leather builds to its popular silicone cases to add a bit of color into your iPhone this spring as well as clear designs for showing off the smartphone’s own style. Spanning multiple colorways, too, you’ll want to scroll through this page to see the entire lot.
Put Apple’s compact iPad mini 6 under the tree with $99 in savings
Joining all of this week’s other best Apple deals, Amazon is now offering the latest iPad mini 6 Wi-Fi 64GB for $399.99 shipped. Down from $499, you’re looking at a match of the Black Friday discount, the second-best price at within $1 of the all-time low, and a rare chance to save thanks to stock shortages. Those who need cellular connectivity are also in luck with much of the same $99 discounts.
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 last fall, 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, as well.
DJI’s new Mini 3 Pro Drone sees first discount
BuyDig’s official eBay storefront is now offering the DJI Mini 3 Pro Drone with Smart RC Controller for $773. Marking the very first chance to save, today’s offer arrives at a new all-time low from the usual $909 price tag. This is about as rare of a chance to save as you’ll find thanks to a $136 discount.
Having launched earlier this year, DJI’s new Mini Pro 3 delivers a more consumer-focused feature set that is packed into one of its most compact builds yet. The entire drone weighs in under 249 grams, while still delivering 34-minute flight times and a robust set of obstacle avoidance tech. The 1/1.3-inch sensor is already a notable solution for aerial photography thanks to the ability to record 4K HDR videos, but there’s also a rotating gimbal that makes this the first DJI drone to be able to capture vertical video for sharing to your smartphone. Take a look at the full specs in our coverage at DroneDJ.
OtterBox’s power bank with MagSafe passthrough charging hits $35
Verizon Wireless is now offering the OtterBox 5K MagSafe Power Bank for $35. Normally fetching $70, like you’ll currently pay at Amazon, today’s offer amounts to 50% in savings. This is well below our previous $52 mention and marking a new all-time low. Sporting a 5,000mAh internal battery as you’ll likely have gathered from its name, OtterBox’s MagSafe Power Bank powers up your iPhone 14, as well as previous-generation 13 and 12 series handsets with a magnetic design that sticks right to the back of your handset.
Its 7.5W output is on par with what you’d expect from even the official offering, though OtterBox takes the experience one step further by allowing you to refuel the battery with another MagSafe charger on top of its dual direction USB-C charging port. You can get a better idea of what to expect in our Tested with 9to5Toys review, as well.
