Adonit Mark Stylus (Silver, Black)
Deal price: $6; street price: $8
Read our review of the best stylus for your iPad.

Matching the low of $6 in silver and black, this is a solid deal on the Adonit Mark Stylus, our budget iPad stylus pick. Sleek, comfortable, well-performing, and affordable, the Mark is one of the best tablet styluses we’ve ever used, especially for its price.

Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad
Deal price: $69; street price: $105
Read our review of the best Apple wireless charging stations.

Now down to $69 in the fabric version. Down to $84, we’ve posted better markdowns for the fabric version of the Mophie 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad, but this is the first deal we’ve seen for the non-fabric version. This is a nice time to save on our former top Apple wireless charging station pick if you’re looking for a charging pad that’s easier to clean than a fabric model and don’t mind that the slick surface may not be as easy to set your devices on.

Our wallet case pick for the iPhone 11, the Smartish Wallet Slayer Vol. 1, is currently $11 in black—only $1 shy of the lowest price we’ve seen. The Wallet Slayer has a nice design that holds up to three cards, but it doesn’t work with wireless charging. Check it out if you like the simple color and you’re looking to ditch your wallet.

Caudabe Veil for iPhone 12 Pro Max
Deal price: $22; street price: $30 (Use code BF2020, price includes shipping)
Read our review of the best iPhone cases for the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.

Although we generally recommend purchasing a case that offers some shock-absorbing qualities, but we also understand there are those who want the thinnest possible case and are willing to give up more significant protection. Among a handful of nearly identical thin cases, our super-thin pick has a slightly rougher texture that offers better grip. It’s down to a new low price of $22 shipped when you use code BF2020. Free shipping is available on orders over $35.

Nomad Rugged Case for iPhone 12 (Rustic Brown)
Deal price: $39; street price: $50 (Use code NMDSMS7194)
Read our review of the best iPhone cases for the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.

We generally think that if you’re choosing a leather case, you should get something that’s all leather. But Nomad’s Rugged Case is a good alternative if you want something that may be able to stand up to drops a little better, and if you’re okay with a case that’s only partially leather. Its body is flexible polycarbonate plastic, with a smooth sheet of leather over the back. The rustic brown color is down to $39 shipped from $50 when you use code NMDSMS7194. It’s backordered until early December but this is still a solid deal and available for all version of the iPhone 12.

Peel Super Thin Case for iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini
Deal price: $34; street price: $58 (Use code BOGOFREE)
Read our review of the best iPhone cases for the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.

If you’re looking for a super-thin case for your new iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini, choose this option if you like a smooth texture, want more color choices, or think you’re likely to take advantage of the longer 2-year warranty. This deal for the Peel Super Thin Case is a buy-one-get-one-free offer. Normally selling for $29 each, when you grab two and use code BOGOFREE you can get two for just $34 shipped.

OtterBox iPhone 12 Symmetry Series Case for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro
Deal price: $38; street price: $50
Read our review of the best iPhone cases for the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.

You can find such great cases at such fair prices that we don’t think it’s worth it to spend extra money on a bigger brand name. But if you’re dead-set on something from OtterBox, the Symmetry Series Cases are a great, more protective option. It doesn’t feel bulky the way you’d expect an extra-protective case to feel, and the buttons click great, the colors are very nice, and you can wirelessly charge through the case. It’s down to the best price we’ve seen thus far, $38 from $50 for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

Smartish Wallet Slayer Vol. 1 Case for iPhone 11 Pro
Deal price: $11; street price: $15
Read our review of the best iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max cases.

Smartish Wallet Slayer Vol. 1 Case for iPhone 11 Pro Max
Deal price: $11; street price: $15
Read our review of the best iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max cases.

For iPhone 11 Pro owners, our iPhone 11 Pro wallet case pick is down to $11 in blue and black. This is only the second deal we’ve noted for the iPhone 11 Pro version of this wallet case, so if you’re interested, this is a good chance to buy. The Wallet Slayer Vol. 1 is discounted in multiple sizes and generations, so make sure you’re getting the right one for your phone.

If you’re just looking for accessories, steer clear of the Apple site, which discounts accessories as rarely as it does the company’s other products and offers a limited selection. On the other hand, we also don’t recommend buying the cheapest chargers and cables you can find, as they tend to be unreliable or even dangerous. But we have tested and reviewed hundreds of accessories to find the best ones, and those models are generally available for lower prices than what Apple’s options cost.

Chargers and cables are a particular weak spot for Apple-branded accessories. We frequently recommend options from major accessory companies like Anker because they tend to last longer, perform better, and cost less. Plus, companies such as Anker, Aukey, and RAVPower tend to put their models on sale more often. For many of those items, though, you’ll need to buy straight from the company or find them on Amazon.

As for cases, we’ve tested hundreds over the past few years, and even the best iPhone cases and iPad cases aren’t particularly expensive at normal prices, so waiting for a sale doesn’t save you much.
