Apple’s M1 13-inch MacBook Air 512GB falls to new Amazon low
Authorized retailer Expercom via Amazon offers the Apple M1 13-inch MacBook Air 512GB for $1,190. Down from its usual $1,249 going rate, you’re saving $55 with today’s offer beating our previous mention by $10 and marking the best we’ve seen to date on the higher-end configuration. Apple’s new MacBook Air packs a familiar 13-inch design but with completely overhauled internals that deliver stellar battery life and notable performance gains despite a fan-less build. On top of 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, this model steps up from the base model to an 8-core CPU. There’s also a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports here as well as Apple’s Magic Keyboard.
Many of Apple’s official iPhone cases go on sale
Amazon is discounting a number of official iPhone cases this morning with deals starting at $17. It’s not often that we see Apple’s official iPhone cases go on sale, let alone at some of the best prices all-time below $20 in some instances. If you’re rocking an iPhone 11/Pro/Max, X/S/Max, or SE, you’ll find a deal here.
Add HomeKit control your lights
Amazon offers the Leviton Decora Smart Dimmer for $41. As a comparison, it typically sells for $60, with today’s deal marking the best offer we’ve seen in months. Leviton’s sleek in-wall dimmer notably offers support for HomeKit, making it easy to control your lights and more with Siri. It supports 3-way setups with up to four remote dimming units, so you can set the mood accordingly. Be sure to note, that it does require a neutral wire for install.
Arlo’s 1080p HomeKit Video Doorbell now $100
Amazon currently offers the Arlo Smart Video Doorbell for $100. Down from its $130 going rate that you’ll find right now at retailers like Best Buy, today’s offer amounts to 23% in savings and matches our previous mention for the Amazon all-time low. Arlo’s video doorbell expands the smart security coverage to your front door with 1080p recording, two-way audio, and a weather-resistant package. That’s on top of motion detection for alerting you when packages are dropped off and the just-announced addition of HomeKit support for pairing with the rest of your Siri setup.
Nomad’s Apple accessory sale from $10
Nomad is discounting a selection of accessories from $10 this morning on its outlet storefront. Shipping rates varies by location. One standout is the Rugged Strap for 42/44mm Apple Watches at $35. It typically goes for $45 or more. Today’s deal matches our previous mention. This strap ditches the leather design for a silicone build that’s better suited for rough and tumble activities. You might be able to pull this off in professional situations too, as the stainless steel lugs are a great touch.
