Apple announced a new 13-inch MacBook Pro and new MacBook Air models on Monday, which means prices for older models are dropping rapidly. Best Buy has discounted much of its iPad Air 2 stock, dropping prices by $50 to $100, so it's an excellent time to pick up a new iPad if you've been waiting for a deal.
We've also got discounts on a range of Apple accessories like a monitor stand and a mobile MacBook charger, plus we've rounded up some of the best app sales of the week.
