Apple’s 11-inch M2 iPad Pro hits best price of the year
Amazon is now offering the best price of the year on Apple’s 11-inch M2 iPad Pro. Dropping the Wi-Fi 128GB capacity model down to $750, today’s offer clocks in at $49 off the usual $799 going rate. This is $10 under our previous mention from back in February and is the best we’ve seen since December of last year when it dropped to $729.
Apple just released the latest generation of iPad Pro last fall and now you can finally save on the latest iPadOS experience. This time around, everything with the latest M2 iPad Pro comes centered around a familiar form-factor as previous models with all of the staples like Apple Pencil 2 support, Wi-Fi 6E, Face ID, all-day battery, and integration with Magic Keyboard. Though there are some notable improvements, like the M2 chip which powers its 11-inch Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 wide color support. Circling back on the Apple Pencil 2 support, M2 iPad Pro also packs a new hover feature that offers another way to interact with the interface, which you can learn more about in our coverage.
Apple Watch Series 8 styles return to Amazon lows
Continuing the trend of discounting Apple’s latest wearables to really celebrate the start of spring, Amazon today is completing the trifecta with some Apple Watch Series 8 markdowns. Joining the likes of the SE 2 and Ultra styles that have gone on sale earlier in the week, Wednesday is giving shoppers a chance to score all-time lows. Leading the way, the Apple Watch Series 8 GPS 45mm stylings now rest at $359 shipped in two different colorways. It would typically set you back $429 in either case, with today’s offers arriving at all-time lows. This is the best we’ve seen in a month and a rare chance to save period considering stock shortages have been plaguing Amazon listings as of late. The smaller 41mm GPS stylings are also on sale, and now dropping down to $329 in all four styles. That’s down from the usual $399 going rate and also matching the all-time low.
Apple Watch Series 8 arrives as the brand’s next-generation wearable that steps up to deliver Apple’s most comprehensive fitness tracking experience yet. Well, aside from the new Ultra model, that is. Sporting an always-on display, you’ll find a new S8 chip powering the experience which drives the improved gyroscope and accelerometer to enable crash detection. The onboard temperature sensor pairs with overnight sleep tracking, as well as the onboard heart rate sensor, ECG capabilities, and blood oxygen monitoring. Go learn more over at 9to5Mac.
