My 10.5 iPad Pro requires a battery replacement. I get very little battery life and also my screen is very dim in sunlight on full brightness with auto brightness off. Should I spend money on getting it fixed or get an iPad Pro 11 inch now or just wait till Spring and get the next iPad Pro.

I can’t believe Apple and MR are exploiting Independence Day for commercial gain. I’m offended. o_O

The current deals aren’t the lowest I’ve seen on Amazon for the new Pros. At one point they hit $300 off a few months ago.

It appears that Best Buy has iPad Pros $250 off every couple of weeks or so. Thinking of pulling the trigger one of these times—knowing that it’ll go back down allows me to not be rash about it, which is nice.

July 4th use to have sales but it’s being killed off by prime day. Retailers are now holding out to compete with amazon.

We Americans have the day off, and what's more American than spending our free time shopping for more gadgets?

Remember that he who dies with the most toys wins.
Correction. Majority of Americans have the day off.
Unfortunately, there are still workers at work today. :(

FYI. Target HomePod $199.99 deal is on again today (Friday 5th)

Target stores have almost no stock, but if you want to take it home today, Best Buy was price matching last week per this post: #46. They may still be.

Quite a few of us here price matched for same-day pickup with no problem.
