A couple of $123 price cuts are leading all of today’s top Apple sales, as a cellular Apple Watch SE 2 falls to $206. It’s less than the usual GPS model at this brand-new low, and comes with Apple’s 512GB M2 Mac mini now at $676 – with the same $123 reduction attached. Also, clearance discounts on iPhone 15 FineWoven cases start from $18. Check below for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Save $123 on a cellular Apple Watch SE 2 at $206
Amazon is now offering the Apple Watch SE 2nd Gen 44mm for $206 with GPS and Cellular connectivity. This is down from the usual $329 price tag in order to mark a new all-time low. It’s not only $123 below that usual price tag, but also well below what we’ve seen on the standard GPS-only model – which sells for $229 right now. So whether you’re planning to immediately activate the cellular features or just plan to use it as an iPhone companion, this is the best pricing yet on the company’s more affordable wearable. Check below for more.
Apple Watch SE 2 arrives as a more affordable take on the company’s flagship wearables with much of the same design. Running watchOS 10, you’re looking at the ability to track everything from runs to heart rate and sleep, with a new onboard compass also supplementing the fitness journey. There’s also crash detection and more packed into the Retina Display-backed build with added water resistance for handling daily wear in the shower or tagging along on swims.
Apple’s 512GB M2 Mac mini now down to $676
Amazon is now offering the latest M2 Mac mini for $499. It drops from the usual $599 price tag to save you $100, a discount that also finds itself matched over at B&H. Both are matching the lowest price in over a month, while returning to the second-best discount we’ve ever seen. The elevated 512GB SSD model is also on sale at $676, down from its $799 price tag. We detail what to expect from the experience in a hands-on review. We also take a closer look at what these Mac mini deals deliver below the fold.
Apple’s M2 Mac mini refreshes a beloved form-factor to feature its now previous-generation in-house silicon. So while this isn’t powered by the new M3 chip, it does mark the latest release from Apple in the lineup. There’s that same compact build that has made previous versions so popular amongst first-time Mac owners, as well as streamlined workstation users and homelabbers alike. The improved performance of the M2 chip also pairs with dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, a pair of USB-A slots, an HDMI output, and Gigabit Ethernet. You’ll also find Wi-Fi 6E, and at least an 8-core CPU backed by a 10-core GPU and at least 256GB of storage.
Apple’s FineWoven iPhone 15 cases are finally worth a try
If you’ve been waiting for a chance to try out Apple’s new FineWoven cases without paying full price, Amazon has your back as savings roll out to various styles of the new iPhone 15 accessory. These cases launched last fall to provide an alternative to leather, and now start from $18. There’s quite a few different colors available, each of which drops from the usual $59 price tag to mark new all-time lows. We take a hands-on look at the whole experience, but if there has ever been a time to try out the new material for yourself – it’s now.
Apple’s new FineWoven cases wrap your iPhone 15 in an entirely refreshed finish meant to replace leather. The microtwill material is made from 68% post-consumer recycled materials, and has a soft touch finish to it that comes in different colors. There’s MagSafe support as you’d expect from an official Apple case, as well. Today’s discount applies to three different styles. Each of these are at all-time lows as some of the first chances to save.
Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e Headphones are our favorite AirPods Max killer
Amazon is now offering the Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e Headphones for $319. This is down from the usual $399 price tag and now marking a new all-time low at $80 off. We’ve seen these headphones for $50 off quite a few times since launching last year, and now they’re falling lower than we’ve ever seen with an extra $30 in savings. Earlier this fall, I tried out the new Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e headphones, only to deem them the AirPods Max successors I had been waiting for. Now they’re even easier to recommend with today’s discount. Dive into our hands-on review for the full scoop of what to expect
The Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2e deliver a more premium take on over-ear headphones that come in one of four styles. Alongside just offering the brand’s signature sound with a unique acoustic system that sports angled drivers, there’s also active noise cancellation. Though after trying these myself, the best part has to be the higher-end build that makes these an absolute delight to wear.
This updated pair of headphones was just revealed a few months back, and now arrives with an upgraded high-performance Digital Signal Processing to go alongside even better sound from a similar driver array. There’s a new Forest Green color, as well. Otherwise, you’re getting the same 40mm drivers, six microphones, aptX Adaptive support, and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity as the original pair.
Yale Assure Lock 2 Plus with Apple Home Keys sees first discount
Amazon is now offering the first discount on the new Yale Assure Lock 2 Plus with Apple Home Keys. Having just launched back in October, you can now score the first notable price cut to $255. The savings arrive on the Black Suede model, which drops from its usual $290 price tag to save you $35. It’s a new all-time low as you’d expect, too. Outfitting the front door with smart home control, the Yale Assure Lock 2 features quite a few different ways to unlock which we detail over in our launch coverage.
The Yale Assure Lock 2 notably features a touchscreen number pad design that offers a manual way to punch in codes, which is joined by all of the actual smart features. HomeKit and Siri support are two easy headliners, but there’s also compatibility with the companion smartphone app, too. All of which let you ditch traditional keys from the equation. Different from the original model, there’s now a more compact module that installs on the back of your door and is 30% smaller than before. Of course, we can’t forget the Apple Home Keys support that lets you unlock the door with just a tap of your iPhone or Apple Watch.
