Black Friday fever may have eased, but it’s not too late to find some really rosy Apple deals.
John Lewis has cut the price on the brand’s second generation Bluetooth AirPods, and a nifty travel accessory. Here’s what you need to know...
There’s a sizeable saving to be had right now on the wireless charging iteration of Apple’s second gen Bluetooth AirPods. John Lewis is selling these buds for £139, a saving of £29.
In addition to wireless Qi-compatibility for use on charging mats, these earphones boast improved playing time, around five hours, along with voice-activated Siri access.

Usability is terrific. They come in a compact storage/charging case (which bumps the total available listening time to 24 hours), and pair automatically with your iPhone. Take one out of your ear and the music automatically stops playing. These 2019 models can be worn as a stereo pair, or singularly if that’s more convenient.
Key to their functionality is the Apple H1 chip inside, which brings excellent connectivity and battery stamina (Siri will always tell you just how much juice you have in reserve when asked).
Naturally, audio playback quality is high as you’d expect from Apple, while call quality is helped by beamforming microphones able filter out background noise, to better focus on the sound of your voice.
If you can manage without wireless charging, there’s a similarly tempting deal to be had on the standard second gen AirPods, which John Lewis is offering for £99, a £20 saving.

These lookalike True Wireless earphones offer the same 5 hour battery life as their wireless stablemates, identical Siri smart assistant access and the same excellent level of audio performance, thanks to that powerful Apple H1 chip.
Finally, there’s also a £4 saving to had on Apple’s handy Airtag Loop. Available at John Lewis for £25 if you buy the white edition, the Airtag Loop allows you to add an Airtag (available separately for £29) to any luggage or bag, allowing them to be tracked using the Find my app on an iPhone.

A neat Christmas present for any iPhone owners planning a 2022 vacation, I reckon.
