Get some third-party charging cables for cheap, or some in-demand apps for big discounts (or free). We’ll give you the lowdown on those unbeatable bargains — plus a mouthwatering $100 off the iPad mini 4 — in this week’s roundup of the best Apple deals.

Lumsing Charging Lightning Cable 2-Pack for $8

Want a cheaper Lightning charger, but don’t want to get stuck with a non-compatible cord your iPhone or iPad will block? These bargain cables from Lumsing are MFI-certified by Apple, and will definitely be compatible with your device.

ATC LLC via Amazon offers two Lumsing Apple MFi-certified 3-foot Lightning cables in six colors for $13.98. (Add two to your cart to see this price.) Adding coupon code “EZJGDVSP” drops the total to $8.39. There are lots of third-party cables on the market, but that’s the lowest total price we could find for a pair of MFI-certified cables by several dollars.

Amazon Prime members receive free shipping. Non-members can spend $49 or more to bag free shipping; otherwise, shipping costs $8.02. Deal ends May 8.

File browser/manager for iPhone and iPad for free

iTunes offers downloads of Browser and File Manager for Documents for iPhone and iPad for free. That’s $5 off and the lowest price we could find.
