Apple’s new 1TB 11-inch iPad Pros with M1 now $100 off
Amazon is now offering the 2021 Apple 11-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi 1TB in Silver for $1,399 shipped. You’ll also find the 1TB Wi-Fi + Cellular model at $100 off for a total of $1,599 shipped. This is matching the best price yet at $100 off the going rate and just $1 less than the price drop we tracked on the lighter capacity models earlier this month, all of which are still live right here.
Apple’s latest M1 MacBook Pro models from $1,100 at Amazon ($199 off)
Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Pro M1/8GB/256GB for $1,099.99 shipped with the price automatically dropping at checkout. Regularly $1,299, today’s deal is $199 off, matching our previous mention, and is the best price we can find. Best Buy is charging $1,250 right now for this model. You’ll also find the 512GB SSD model at $1299.99 shipped, down from $1,499. There might be new MacBooks on the way in a few months’ time, but you likely won’t be finding one at this price for a while. The latest MacBook Pro from Apple brings its M1 chip to the mix with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. The 13-inch Retina display is joined by up to 17-hour battery life, a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports, and Wi-Fi 6. Apple’s TouchBar is included here alongside its most recent Magic Keyboard iteration. See why we deemed it a “once-in-a-generation leap” in our hands-on review and then head below for more.

Amazon is offering the Case-Mate Dog Tag Collar Holder for AirTag at $14.99 with free shipping for Prime members or in orders over $25. Down from $20, today’s deal marks the first price drop that we’ve tracked and consequently a new all-time low.

It’s unintrusive, compact, and rugged, so you don’t have to worry about anything happening to your furry friend or even the AirTag.
