Shop now: Apple AirPods Pro, $199
However, before you go ahead and add those items to your cart, you may just want to note that previous Apple sales like this one have foreshadowed brand-new gear in the pipeline. While Apple didn’t announce a new pair of pods at Wednesday’s big online streaming event in honor of the Apple Watch Series 6, it’s possible a new pair of AirPods could be on their way down the pipeline. So that’s all food for thought if you’re someone who likes to own the latest-and-greatest version of all Apple products.
Whatever option you choose, believe me when I tell you that you can’t go wrong. The Pros have been my right-hand man for many long runs, work calls, and dance parties—and I can honestly say: They’re worth every dollar of the $250 (and you’re getting them for $199). Just make sure you also invest in this $6 tiny tool that will help you clean those AirPods in a big way. After all, you want to treat your new gadget right.
