Apple’s MagSafe charger and the latest GoPro highlight this weekend’s best deals

The ecosystem of MagSafe chargers for the iPhone 12 may not be very extensive, but it’s hard to go wrong with Apple’s magnetic wireless charger — especially when it’s discounted to $30 at Amazon. The magnetic puck can supply the iPhone 12 Mini up to 12 watts of power or the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro up to 15 watts, as long as you have a 20 watts of power stone. It can also complement other iPhones that support wireless charging without magnets. In fact, it can boot any device that supports Qi charging, including AirPods.

Apple’s wired MagSafe charger is downright handy. While slow, the magnetic device can still squeeze an iPhone 12 to 40 percent in under an hour. It also offers Qi support, meaning it can charge older iPhone models and the wireless charging case that comes with some AirPods models.

School is about to be in full swing, and if you’re looking for one of the best laptops available, the M1-equipped MacBook Air should be at the top of your list. Apple’s new chip delivers blazing-fast performance, further aided by long battery life, a revised scissor keyboard and the ability to use iPhone and iPad apps natively. The only thing that hasn’t really changed since its Intel-based predecessor is the laptop’s iconic wedge-shaped design, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing given its excellent build quality.

While the 2020 MacBook Air recently dropped to just $850, it’s back at its regular retail price of $899 at Amazon and B&H Photo, now the second best price yet. Read our review.

If ever there was an Xbox controller that took a cue from the Abstract Expressionist movement of the late 1940s, the Forza Horizon 5 Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller it would be.

It also comes with some exclusive Forza Horizon 5 DLC, although it won’t be released until the game launches on November 9. Normally $75, you can pre-order now for $6 off at Walmart.
