Latest iPad mini 5 rear

Today’s best deals include iPad mini 5 up to $99 off, plus markdowns on top-rated Anker essentials, and Apple’s previous-generation MacBook Air. Hit the jump for all that and more in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

iPad mini 5 up to $99 off

Best Buy is currently taking up to $99 off iPad mini 5. Deals include both Wi-Fi and Cellular configurations with prices from $330. Today’s offer marks an all-time low on the cellular models, and beats our previous mention across the board by at least $20. Apple’s latest iPad mini delivers an ultra-portable design, 7.9-inch Retina display, and an A12 chip + M12 coprocessor. Touch ID rounds out the list of notable features along with support for Apple Pencil. We heralded its smart form factor as a defining feature “when portability matters most” in our hands-on review.

Save on Anker’s latest USB-C essentials

AnkerDirect via Amazon is offering its recently released Atom III Slim 30W USB-C Wall Charger for $22. That’s down $13 from the regular going rate and the second-best price we’ve tracked to date. With an ultra-compact design, this wall charger is an easy buy for frequent travelers or as a bedside charger where space may be at a premium. Notable features here include a single USB-C port backed by 30W of power, making it a suitable answer for charging iPhones, iPads, and various Android devices, plus a foldable plug that makes its footprint even smaller. We loved it in our hands-on review. Check out the rest of today’s best deals from Anker starting at $11.

Save on MacBook Air and Pro from $820

Today only, Woot is offering certified refurbished Apple MacBook Air and Pro at notable discounts. Our top pick is the 2018 13-inch MacBook Air 256GB at $820. As a comparison, you’d originally pay $1,299 or more for these MacBooks. The current-generation sells for $999 with the same capacity. Apple’s 2018 MacBook Air delivers a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, and a completely refreshed design. Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports delivery connectivity for all of your gear at up to 40GB/s. Up to 12 hours of battery life keeps you up and running throughout the day. Includes a one-year warranty.

Save $500 on Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro 1TB

HHGregg via Google Express offers Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro 2.3GHz/16GB/1TB for $2,299. That’s good for $500 off and easily a new all-time low, besting our previous mention by $200. Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro sports a completely redesigned ‘Magic’ keyboard alongside a larger 3072×1920 display. There’s 1TB worth of SSD storage on this model. You’ll also find the usual four Thunderbolt 3 ports, 16GB worth of RAM, and a redesigned Touch Bar with physical escape and power buttons. We called it a “significant improvement” over the previous-generation model in our hands-on review.

Score Apple’s official Milanese Loop Apple Watch Band

Amazon currently offers Apple’s official Milanese Loop Apple Watch Band in both 40 and 40mm sizes for $80. Having originally sold for $149, it received an official price cut down to $99. Today’s offer matches our previous mention for the 2020 low from back in January, is the best since, and comes within $5 of the all-time low. Apple’s official Milanese Loop band elevates the look of your Watch with a woven stainless steel design and a magnetic clasp that allows for an adjustable fit. Whether you’re looking to add some class to your wearable or just want to mix up the look, the Milanese stylings are sure to impress. More details below.
