Our pick: 2021 iPad Mini (WiFi, 64GB)

$399.99 at Amazon (save $99.01)



Why we like it

Check out Mashable’s official review of the 2021 iPad Mini.

What our reviewer called “the best (small) iPad ever” is at its lowest price ever at the time of writing. It’s definitely compact, with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display, but its updated design, great speakers, and nice speed (courtesy of its A15 Bionic chip) make this tiny tablet one of the best iPad’s at full price. At $100 off, you might as well treat yourself and grab that last minute gift for mom. And if you’re looking for a little extra storage space, the 256GB model is enjoying a nice markdown as well.

No trade-in is necessary for this deal on the iPhone 13 Mini at Verizon. Though this model looks quite similar to its predecessor, its starting storage of 128GB and improved battery life definitely justify the upgrade.

Our pick: Apple Watch Series 7

$329 at Amazon (save $70)



Why we like it

On April 4, we saw the Series 7 hit its lowest price ever at $329 thanks to its status as an Amazon daily deal. We thought the price would go back up after 24 hours, we were wrong, and we were happy about being wrong. While the green aluminum model surprised us with yet another drop after, its price is back up, but that’s not all bad. Every single color of Apple’s latest smartwatch with its bigger watch face, improved charge time, increased durability, and added support for biking, is still available for $329, at Amazon and Walmart.

Our pick: AirPods Pro

$174.99 at Amazon (save $74.01)



Why we like it

Check out Mashable’s official review of the AirPods Pro.

Give Mom the gift of some easy peace and quiet. The AirPods Pros have been on the scene for a few years, but they still provide some of the best earbud active noise cancellation in the game. Their five hours of battery life and interchangeable ear tips round out Apple’s best AirPods. This isn’t the best price we’ve seen them at, but it’s still lower than the high $180-range they have a tendency to sit at.
