Think AirPods Pro 2 will get any steeper discounts for Black Friday, or is now the time to pounce?
Buy when you want them, I never chase deals. I just get them directly from Apple.

I’ve literally never plugged any of my AirPods Pro in. It could have a serial port for wired charging and I wouldn’t even care.
I don't wirelessly charge airpods because they don't stop charging when they're done. I wake up in the morning and the case is still warm after 9 hours. I know they can't overcharge, but something is still happening to keep them hot.

Wow that's a great deal on a month old watch.

Couldn't get me to buy lightning airpods if you gave them to me for free though.
