PSA: Today's the last day

... to get Apple Watch from Apple's website.

Today’s the last day to buy an Apple Watch Series 9 or Apple Watch Ultra 2 on Apple’s website, thanks to a patent dispute the company lost. Online sales from Apple will stop tomorrow, and the company will pull the smartwatches off its store shelves on December 25.

However, the ban doesn’t apply to third-party retailers like Best Buy, Walmart or Amazon — as long as supplies last.

Amazon and Best Buy both seem to have stock on hand of Series 9 and Ultra 2 — and they are on sale at good prices — but maybe it’s best not to wait until the very last minute like I typically do. My Xmas shopping this year starts on Saturday! Pull the trigger now if you don’t want to ruin Christmas!
