The iPhone 13 at 799 euros
Should we still present the Apple iPhone 13? Released in September 2021, the iPhone 13 mainly refines the recipe of its predecessor: autonomy is longer, the dual photo sensor is refined and performance improves. The size of the notch has even been reduced. It is especially iOS 15 that makes using the iPhone 13 very pleasant. The animations are fluid, the design of the applications is homogeneous, and everything is always very fast. Still, the iPhone 13 benefits from the best update policy on the smartphone market. It should receive new versions of iOS for the next five years, at least.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones at 314.99 euros
For several years now, Sony has been one of the market leaders in active noise reduction headphones. A few weeks ago, the Japanese manufacturer released a new version of its star product: the WH-1000XM5 headphones. This is an important novelty, since Sony has completely revised the design of its helmet, which gains in sobriety and elegance. Beyond this significant change, there are few differences with the previous iteration, and that’s not a bad thing. The sound reproduction is of excellent quality and the noise reduction remains one of the most effective that we can find.
The only downside for the Sony WH-1000XM5: an introductory price deemed too high compared to its predecessor. A defect that Rakuten corrects during the summer sales. Thanks to the promo code RAKUTEN30, its price drops to 314.99 euros. Reimbursement in Super Points amounts to 31 euros.
