Even the Apple Pencil is discounted in the January sales

The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find Apple deals if you’re planning to buy the brand’s products. In addition to iPhone deals, iPad deals, MacBook deals, and Apple Watch deals, a variety of Apple accessories are on sale. These include the second-generation Apple Pencil, which you can purchase from Amazon for $115, after a $14 discount to its original price of $129.

The second-generation Apple Pencil, compared with the first-generation Apple Pencil, comes with a flat edge that makes it look and feel a bit more natural. The design was also updated because of the new charging method — while the first-generation Apple Pencil was plugged into your device’s Lightning port, the second-generation Apple Pencil attaches to the magnetic charger on top of the iPad. This means that not it’s not for all iPad models, so you should check which Apple Pencil works with which iPad before purchasing the accessory. The second-generation Apple Pencil is compatible with the sixth-generation iPad Mini, the fourth-generation iPad Air, the first-generation 11-inch iPad Pro and later, and the third-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro and later.

With the release of iPadOS 14, the introduction of several new features made the second-generation Apple Pencil no longer for graphic designers, but for everyone. One of the helpful additions is Scribble, which transforms anything you write within the operating system into digital text. The accessory itself also comes with hardware-based features, including the ability to switch tools or shut down after a double tap. You can change what it does depending on the app that you’re using, for a handy command that you can customize based on your preferences.

If you own a compatible device for it, you’ll unlock so many capabilities if you invest in the second-generation Apple Pencil. It’s more tempting to buy one because of Amazon’s $14 discount, which brings the accessory’s price down to just $115 from its original price of $129. It’s unclear how long the offer will last, so if you’re sold on the second-generation Apple Pencil to augment the features of your iPad, don’t hesitate. Click that Buy Now button as soon as you can.

Don’t miss your chance to get an Apple iPad for $130
Apple iPad 9.7 on a table surface.

If you keep looking at iPad deals and wishing they could be cheaper, we've spotted the offer for you. Over at Woot, you can buy the iPad 6th generation with a 9.7-inch screen for just $130. Now, there's a slight catch to this. Besides being the older 2018 model, this is a refurbished B-grade model which means it's experienced a moderate level of wear and tear. That can mean a few scratches, dents, and dings, but it's still in full working order and there's a 90-day limited warranty with Woot. If you're fine to have something a little more rugged, this is an excellent deal. You can always add on a case to cover up any marks. Here's what else you need to know before you hit the buy button.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad 9.7
The Apple iPad 9.7 might not be one of the best iPads any more but it's still worth checking out, especially this cheaply. It featured as one of the best products of 2018 thanks to its strong set of features. It has a 9.7-inch Retina display with wide color and true tone support. Alongside that is an Apple A10 Fusion processor that was also used within the iPhone 7 range. While it's not exactly fast any more, thanks to iPadOS being so well optimized and there being thousands of apps to try out, you won't miss out too much.

Person holding the iPad Mini 6 in hand.

Apple’s iPad lineup remains one of the most popular tablet options on the market, and if you’re looking for savings in both space and money, the Apple iPad Mini is worth considering right now. Amazon currently has the latest generation iPad Mini marked down to just $400, which is a savings of $100 from its regular price of $500.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad Mini
At its core, the Apple iPad Mini is a scaled-down version of the popular Apple iPad Air. It lacks the M1 chip you’ll find in the iPad Air, but still provides all of the performance most people could possibly hope for in a tablet you can easily hold with one hand. It features an A15 Bionic chip with Neural Engine, who while the smaller form factor and 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display keep your backpack a little lighter, you’re still able to carry around all of the capability you need for editing photos, creating digital art, taking notes, and even video editing. The iPad Mini’s cameras are also quite impressive, and can be put to good use by content creators or anyone looking to capture the world around them.
