Cyber Monday accessory sale: Apple Pencil, Magic Mouse, and more get deals

It’s not often at all that we see deep discounts on Apple products, but Cyber Monday has brought us some substantial discounts across all types of Apple-branded stuff, and not just MacBooks, Apple Watches, or iPhones. Amazon has slashed up to 25% off select Apple accessories for the biggest online shopping day of the year.

The Apple Pencil gets a $20 price cut, bringing its price down from $99 to $79: the Magic Mouse 2 is also discounted $20, bringing its price down to $59. If you’re looking for a new keyboard for your Mac, the wireless Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad is marked down from $129 to $99.

As far as we’ve seen, these are the cheapest prices yet for any sale so far, so we’d recommend taking advantage of the sales as soon as possible. We’re not sure when the promotional prices end, but they should be good through the end of Cyber Monday and possibly into Cyber Week — but we can’t guarantee the latter.

One word of caution: The Apple Pencil here is the first-generation model. The second-generation model can be found here and is on sale for $119 for Cyber Monday. Keep in mind that pencil is only compatible with newer iPads — if you have an older model, you’ll need to use the first generation pencil.

There isn’t a real dramatic difference between the two; the newer model features a more traditional pencil-like design and can detect pressure a whole lot better to adjust the way your ink draws on the screen. Otherwise, you’ll be fine using the original Apple Pencil for most drawing and writing applications. We’ve used both versions of the Apple Pencil, and haven’t had issues with either — although pairing was sometimes a little wonky if we allowed the Pencil to completely run out of charge. Just don’t let that happen and you’ll be fine.

Both the Magic Mouse and Keyboard in this sale are the most current models of either and a good pickup for laptop owners, or as a replacement if your current keyboard and mouse are showing their age.

The great deals extend to other Apple products too, and there are plenty to check out as Cyber Monday comes to an end,
