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.

iPad Air 2

Best Buy is offering discounts on its entire stock of iPad Air 2 models, dropping the prices by $50 to $100. With the price drop, the 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad Air 2 is available for $449. Price drops are more pronounced on the higher-end 128GB models, with the 128GB Wi-Fi only iPad Air 2 available for $599, down from $699, and the 128GB cellular iPad Air 2 available for $729, down from $829.

It's pretty clear why Apple has such trouble selling these:

1) You don't need to upgrade the iPad as often.

2) The price is too high.

Target has a sweet Cartwheel deal for 10% off what's in store. Combine another 5% for Pharmacy Rewards and 5% for their debit card for almost 20% off a new iPad air 2.
