Each drone can be controlled by an iOS or Android smartphone and can fly with speeds of up to 35mph.


Best Buy has discounts on a few Apple accessories, including $10-$30 off a wide variety of Speck cases for the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. You can also get $50-$60 off select Ultimate Ears Bluetooth speakers, including the UE Boom 2 and UE Megaboom. This brings the price of the speakers down to as low as $139.99 for the UE Boom 2, and $249.99 for the UE Megaboom. DailySteals has the smaller UE Roll 2 on sale for $54.99, down from $99.99.

At Costco, iTunes gift cards are on sale for members only: get $20 off a $200 iTunes gift card, $10 off a $100 card, and $2.50 off a $25 card. The deal ends September 11, and the codes are delivered to your email.

Apps and Games

Along with the usual iOS app sales, this week The Humble Store has an End of Summer sale occurring with big sales on notable games that you can play on a compatible Mac computer via Steam.

Thousands of more games are on sale through September 21, although sales on certain games will end before that. At the top right of each game’s page, you’ll find a countdown clock that serves as a reminder of how long before that game’s discount ends. Be sure to double check that the games are compatible with Mac by looking for the Apple logo in the “Platform” and “Operating System” fields on the bottom left of each page.

Some iOS apps on sale this week worth checking out include:

  • Batman – The Telltale Series – Free (Episode One), down from $4.99
