Check out Mashable's official review of the iPhone 13 Mini.

The iPhone 14 may have been a hot ticket item for the holiday season, but the iPhone 13 is by no means outdated. Unlike newer models, you won't need a trade-in to score some savings, with this Verizon deal that'll get you a free 13 mini if you open a new line at Verizon on an unlimited plan.

If you didn't get that Apple Watch you were hoping for this holiday season, all hope is not lost thanks to this $30 price cut. In addition to the ECG, blood oxygen, and sleep sensors from past generations, the Series 8 also comes loaded with temperature sensors for ovulation tracking and crash detection to keep you as safe as possible in moments of emergency. Sure, the watch isn't quite as discounted as it was before the holidays when we saw it at $50 off, but this deal is still well worth considering.

Check out our full review of the AirPods Pro.

The AirPods Pro were some of the first buds to prove that no, you actually don't need to double the size of your head via over-the-ear headphones to get pretty decent active noise cancellation. That claim to fame originally came with a $250 price tag, but thanks to the release of the second-gen buds, you can grab them for only $179. It's not the lowest price ever, but it's still a decent deal if you're not willing to shell out the extra $50 for their more recently released counterparts.
