Apple Watch Series 9 styles reduced to $299

Amazon is now offering its biggest discount ever on the Apple Watch Series 9. Today’s discount applies to the 41mm GPS style. $299 each. That’s $100 off the usual $399 price tag, and $10 more than previously mentioned, marking a new all-time low.

Now, the Apple Watch Series 9, centered around the new S9 chip, comes with an almost identical build as its predecessor, but with a few improvements. It offers the same fitness tracking experience as before, but now with a 3,000-nit screen that can reduce down to 1-nit. There’s a new pinch detection feature for one-handed interaction with wearables that launched earlier this week, and Build, Apple’s first carbon-neutral release.

AirPods 3

Apple AirPods 3 returns to Amazon’s all-time low of $140

Apple’s latest AirPods 3 are now enjoying a cost reduction for the first time in nearly two months. With the help of Amazon, the retailer is offering earbuds for: $140. This is the model with a Lightning-enabled charging case, a cut from the usual $169 price tag. This matches the all-time low last recorded in early December at a $29 discount.

Apple’s latest entry-level earbuds were originally released in October 2021, then refreshed last fall with a new wired-only charging case that takes many of the same pages from the Pro version’s playbook as before. While ditching the silicone eartips, AirPods 3 add nearly identical spatial audio support as well as water resistance for use when running or exercising. Going back to the charging case, this model does not have MagSafe charging. There’s only a Lightning port on the bottom for charging after 30 hours of listening.

Apple Pencil with USB-C has dropped to an all-time low of $69.

We’re now tracking a second discount on the new Apple Pencil with USB-C support. With help from Amazon, you can now bring home a cheaper iPad stylus. $69. That’s a new all-time low, $10 off the usual $79 price tag, and marks the first price reduction since Black Friday. The previous sale price was $71, so now you can save an extra $2. Take a closer look at the release and see what you can expect.

The new Apple Pencil with USB-C has been released as a more affordable stylus for use with the latest iPad. It boasts the same configuration as the previous second-generation model, but lacks some of the decorations. There is no magnetic charging and instead uses the USB-C port that gives the accessory its name. However, it still attaches to the side of the tablet using a built-in magnet, which creates another compromise aside from pressure sensitivity.
