A new low is the $200 discount on the latest 13-inch M2 MacBook Air for $899. That's joined by the new Beats Studio Buds+ that retail for $115, alongside the recently released Anker Prime 6-in-1 GaN Charging Station for $93. Get a jump on all that and more in the latest Homekit.Blog Lunch Break.
Midway through the workweek, Best Buy is now offering its best price yet for Apple's latest 13-inch M2 MacBook Air. Just in time for those last-minute back-to-school upgrades, the 13-inch Apple Silicon machine with 256GB of storage now starts at $899. Compared to the usual $1,099 price tag that Apple just dropped for excellence to make room for the new 15-inch Air, today's listing marks a new low with $200 off. It is also an additional $50 under our previous listing of new condition. The 512GB capacity model is also discounted from $200 to $1,199, which also marks a new low. Apple's latest M2 MacBook Air is powered by the latest internal chip and has a refreshed form factor. The 13-inch Liquid Retina display has a brightness of 500 nits to round out the wide P3 color support and is complemented by a 1080p FaceTime camera with three microphones and speakers with Spatial Audio, although the real highlight has to be the return of MagSafe charging, which makes the cut next to other I/O-like dual Thunderbolt ports.

Beats Studio Buds+ starts at $115
Amazon is now offering the new Beats Studio Buds+ for $129.99, shipping in all three styles. Including that slick new transparent case model, the savings all add up to the usual $170 price tag, saving you $40. It's one of the first opportunities yet to save, and a new low. However, Woot cuts prices even further and only offers the black style of Studio Buds+ for $114.95, saving you an extra $15 if you don't mind skipping the newer design. Beats Studio Buds+ just launched in May and is the latest listening experience from Beats. Notable features include improved ANC and Transparency modes, which are complemented by upgraded microphones and the sleekly designed construction. There's 36 hours of listening for the record, and everything else you can read in our hands-on review.
Anker's new Prime 6-in-1 GaN charging station costs $93
Amazon is now offering the new Anker Prime 6-in-1 USB-C GaN charging station for $93. From $110 comes this now as the second discount to date with a $16 discount. It's an extra $5 below the launch discount we saw when the new accessory arrived at the beginning of the month, marking a new low. Packed into a sleek form factor, the Anker Prime Charging Station offers six different ways to refuel your gear, including two full power outlets. At the end of the charger are two USB-C ports and a pair of USB-A slots, all sharing 140W of power to charge your Apple gear.

Amazon is now offering the Level Bolt HomeKit Smart Lock for $141. Starting at $199, you'll now see a 30% savings in addition to its best price of the year. Today's offer is $5 less than our previous listing and lands as the second best discount yet. For comparison, we haven't seen it sold since the summer of 2022. Level Bolt distinguishes itself from all other models on the market with an invisible design that hides in your door frame. Most other offerings have large enclosures or enclosures that hang from the back of your door, but Level Bolt keeps the setup looking like it's still traditional hardware. That unique design is accompanied by support for a variety of smart home features, culminating in HomeKit integration on top of Ring, using a smartphone app, or just popping out the old school key. We found it lived up to the novelty in our hands-on review.
