For the lovers of Apple products, take notice. The WWDC is over, and the sales have arrived this week like mother nature’s fresh rain on a garden of offers. Apple’s Macs are on sale, as well as its iPhone and the iPad…

Plugging Into the Sony WH-CH720N Deal

A Sound Investment

You’ve just got to dive into the crazy world of discounts … On an advertised 35% discount, another set of cans: the Sony WH-CH720N wireless headphones. They might look a bit plasticky, but the audio and ANC should dramatically improve your listening experience – especially at this price.

The Core of Apple Deals

A Bite of APPLE'S Best

An apple a day keeps the techings away, and this week’s apples are many and bountiful. There’s the iPad, the Apple Watch, and the Apple Pencil 2, and that’s just the top of the proverbial pile. The new, high-fidelity AirPod Max headphones look absolutely gorgeous, and – in case you haven’t noticed by now – Apple’s discounts are where it’s at.

Nurturing the tech orchard:

  • Apple’s 3rd Generation AirPods: Usually $199, now $166.95, a 17 per cent discount.
  • Apple Watch Series 9: $349 (was $449) The ultimate smartwatch is worth wrapping around your wrist now because it has finally dipped below the $350 mark.
  • MacBook Air M2 (2022): This ultra-light powerhouse is that much more affordable now.
  • AirPods Max: A luxurious listening experience awaits with a $100 shave off their price.
  • The Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 15: Add blood to your machine without adding size – for a sweeter price.

Exploring Beyond the Apple Tree

Wide Tech Horizons

Meanwhile, you’ll find savings – on gizmos of all ilks – for the rest of us who venture further off the beaten Apple path. Sit back and peruse the deals this week on all kinds of tech with everything from the Google Pixel 8 Pro to the intrepid GoPro HERO12 Black and TP-Link’s excellent Deco AXE5400 mesh router system.

Connectivity and Play

Sony’s Days of Play sale won’t just put the PlayStation 5 within reach but make Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and other games cheaper too. And a year-long Peacock Premium subscription is as cheap as it will or might ever get right now.

The Apple of Our Eye

Closing Thoughts on APPLE'S Lure

As a brand, Apple successfully seduces would-be consumers with its combination of design, functionality and ecosystem. This week’s blowout Apple sale is not only about you and me getting to own some top-of-the-line tech at a discount, but it signals how big an Apple continues to be, and how recurring its value proposition remains.

What’s the logic that an AirPods offering state-of-the-art sound, or a MacBook Air offering the rarest combination of performance and portability, both embody Apple’s ability once again to build a work of art (hardware) and an operating system (software) that harmonise? Clearly, the discounts beckon Apple devotees as well as stragglers who might be persuaded that, in the Apple orchard, the fruit is better than elsewhere.

Until we exit the orchards of deals for good, let’s appreciate the technology that ties us together, entertains us, and unites us. Team Apple or just shopping for tech variety in your diet? This week’s buffet offers something for everybody. Here’s to getting your sweet spot, the perfect deal between lust and reason.
