Where to find the best Cyber Monday Apple Accessories deals

Apple Pencil (2nd generation) |$129.99$79.99 at Amazon

With low latency, automatic pairing, and easy charging, the 2nd generation Apple Pencil is my go-to choice for Cyber Monday. I like what USB-C brings in the most recent update of the pencil, but it doesn’t support magnetic charging and pressure sensitivity, so it was worth picking up the older model here.

As someone looking to draw, I anticipate being put off by the size of the iPad when I’m not curled up on the sofa. If I also want to use it on a desk, I’ll want to angle it to get the best brushstrokes when drawing. For this reason, a small stand to hold it for art will be much appreciated. This also has the bonus of allowing me to easily mirror my screen through airplay when working.

Xiron paper screen protector (2 pack) | $7.99$6.29 at Amazon

One of the things I was worried about when buying a screen protector was how the feeling of drawing would translate to the plastic that most protectors are made out of. So when I spotted the Xiron paper screen protector, I had to pick it up. Though not a huge saving, 21% off the base price is still a nice bonus on something I was planning on picking up anyway.

James Bentley

James is a staff writer and general Jack of all trades at iMore. With news, features, reviews, and guides under his belt, he has always liked Apple for its unique branding and distinctive style. Originally buying a Macbook for music and video production, he has since gone on to join the Apple ecosystem with as many devices as he can fit on his person. 

With a degree in Law and Media and being a little too young to move onto the next step of his law career, James started writing from his bedroom about games, movies, tech, and anything else he could think of. Within months, this turned into a fully-fledged career as a freelance journalist. Before joining iMore, he was a staff writer at Gfinity and saw himself published at sites like TechRadar, NME, and Eurogamer. 

As his extensive portfolio implies, James was predominantly a games journalist before joining iMore and brings with him a unique perspective on Apple itself. When not working, he is trying to catch up with the movies and albums of the year, as well as finally finishing the Yakuza series. If you like Midwest emo music or pretentious indie games that will make you cry, he’ll talk your ear off.
