New $29 AppleCare+ option covers AirPods and Beats

New $29 AppleCare+ option covers AirPods and Beats Apple has launched an AppleCare+ option for headphones, which sounds like a great deal for people who keep dropping their AirPods. The $29 add-on is available not just for AirPods, but also for select Beats earphone and headphone models. It extends the devices' hardware repair coverage from one year to two, and it covers two more incidents of accidental damage from handling. While the service doesn't seem to cover charging cases, its coverage includes wireless buds' batteries and the charging cables they shipped with. Plus, it buys subscribers priority access to Apple's customer service.

Apple has unveiled the new 9 AirPods Pro, with a new design and active noise canceling. Retailers have already marked down the price of Apple 's second-gen AirPods (with the wireless charging case) to 5 -- about lower than where it had been sitting for months.

AirPods deliver effortless, all-day audio. AirPods Pro feature Active Noise Cancellation. Both include free engraving. Find the right ones for you. And AirPods Pro bring Active Noise Cancellation to an in-ear headphone — with a customizable fit.

We're on the cusp of the best time of the year to buy new headphones. Technically, Black Friday doesn't start until the morning of Nov. 29 -- but the major discounts have already arrived. At the moment, the best deal going is at Best Buy, which has the Beats Studio3 for $200 -- a massive $150 off of Apple's retail price.

Though we haven't yet seen any deals on Apple's new AirPods Pro, their very existence has already impacted the prices of other models in the company's headphones lineup. The second-gen AirPods (with the wireless charging case) now sell for $165 at Amazon -- a modest but noteworthy $4 drop in the price from this summer. And it may be a harbinger of bigger discounts to come.
