news from Tim Cook & Co. during the
big WWDC 2017 keynote, and we’re already seeing the first
deals on preorders of the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro.
to be outdone, Apple itself is providing some impressive
discounts on refurbished MacBooks and iMacs. You’ll find those
surprising discounts and more in this week’s best Apple deals.
