Today, March 31, is the last day to get discounts on USB-C accessories from Apple. The discounts were supposed to expire at the end of 2016 but then temporarily extended through the first three months of 2017.
Apple introduced the discounts on USB-C accessories after it announced the 2016 MacBook Pro. It’s the first Apple tablet to only include an USB-C port.
Some of the discounts include:
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (1m) – $19 (was $25)
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (2m) – $29 (was $35)
- USB-C to USB Adapter – $9 (was $19)
- Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter – $29 (was $49)
- USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter – $49 (was $69)
- USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter – $49 (was $69)
After announcing the original discounts, Apple said it wanted to make the transition to USB-C easier for users.
“We recognize that many users, especially pros, rely on legacy connectors to get work done today and they face a transition. We want to help them move to the latest technology and peripherals, as well as accelerate the growth of this new ecosystem. Through the end of the year, we are reducing prices on all USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals we sell, as well as the prices on Apple’s USB-C adapters and cables.”
You can find these discounts at Apple’s retail locations and online.
