Twelve South often discounts its products on Amazon, and this week shoppers can get the company's latest product -- the PowerPic Frame -- for just $53.00, down from $89.99. This is the first major sale on the PowerPic and definitely worth checking out if you've been interested in the accessory.


The PowerPic is an iPhone-compatible wireless charger that doubles as a traditional picture frame when it's not being used to charge a smartphone. You can read more about the accessory in our full review right here. In the Amazon sale, both White and Black colors are available.


Mophie has its own Qi chargers for sale on Amazon as well, including a 2-pack of its Wireless Charge Pad for $53.99, down from $96.16. Mophie's accessory launched around the time that wireless charging debuted on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X in 2017, and it offers up to 7.5W fast charging on a rubberized base.


In other sales, you can get a clear case for your iPhone XR, priced at just $1.99 with promo code JB6KN5VH, down from $6.99. Made from a third-party reseller on Amazon, the clear case is sitting at a 4.5 star rating from around 850 users, so it could be a decent and ultra-cheap alternative to Apple's $40 accessory. Lastly, Dodocool also has its 7-in-1 USB-C Hub for $23.79 with code HKAUWT5M, down from $33.99.

That smart plug doesn't have HomeKit support. Why would you advertise a product on an Apple-oriented website that only supports Alexa and Google Home?

Because I, as an Apple user, don't care about HomeKit. I use Alexa because there are more accessories and it is more affordable to do my entire house and office. I care about the price, and thank you MacRumors for sharing content that is beneficial to a lot of people.
