Amazon selling Apple accessories/cables, etc.
« on: February 17, 2013, 07:33:28 pm »
Amazon is now selling Apple accessories/cables, etc. If you have Prime, it's free shipping. Also, maybe no sales tax.

    Amazon brand (AmazonBasics) of cables work well with apple devices and they are cheaper. I bought one of the cables for my iPad mini and haven't had any issues.

    That's good to know, Heather. I was wondering if they, AmazonBasics, worked as well as the Apple cables.

    Some good deals.  Just ordered a black leather smartcover for $24.45.  My blue rubber one is all worn out from two years of heavy use.  The leather is a lot more durable, but I never was up for paying the $70 for it.

    Also grabbed one of the AmazonBasic cables mentioned above for $8.99 so I can have a cable in my office for when my iPhone 4S gets low (have been listening to a lot of Pandora while working lately.

    Got my stuff yesterday.  The leather case was the Apple brand one and new in packaging--was a bit skeptical since it was a 3rd party seller fullfilled by Amazon and the $24.45 price when it still goes for $69.99 in stores.

    Just curious, Mooshie, but you did not say how you liked it.

    Oh I've always loved the smartcover and the leather is nicer than the rubber ones. Not worth the $70 MSRP but definitely worth the $24.45.

    Mooshie, do you have a link?  And is it the cover or the case?

    Just the cover.  I don't care about covering the back so I didn't look into the smartcases.

    Mooshie, I'm glad you like the smartcover! That's also a great price.

    I don't have the leather one, but I love the smart cover all the same. Awesome accessory.

    But back on topic, glad I found this thread. Those Amazon cables seem like a good deal - just wasn't sure if they caused any problems or not. I think the new lightning connector port uses a special chip, so if you don't use an authorized cable, it may not even charge.
