Alongside our regular Daily Deals post, we are showcasing some of the offers available from our own MacNN Deals store. Today, we're highlighting four of the different iPhone cases you can pick up from the store, including two that can be used to replace your wallet or purse, and two that can help extend your iPhone's battery life by multiple hours.
This is another case of it being easy when you know how. It's also another case of being vaguely aware of a feature but only really finding it by accident. All of which means that this is a case of being inspired by Charles Martin's Pointers last week, about Five tips for iOS I learned by accident
We're a year into the life of the Apple Watch, and still it's rare to find a case or a stand that includes a charging cable. You almost always have to use the one Apple provided, and thread it through some plastic or metal. It's still the case most of the time, and it is the case with Twelve South's TimePorter Travel Stand and Case for Apple Watch.
We love our iPad Minis around these parts, as they're the perfect size for a portable tablet. They're lightweight, but feature a screen big enough to do just about everything we want them to, which is why we find ourselves toting them to places we wouldn't normally take a tablet, and introducing them to hazards they're not meant to handle. If you want to protect your tablet from the great outdoors, we suggest checking out Satechi's Waterproof IPX8 iPad Mini Case.
Brik Book is another Kickstarter success story, raising three times its funding goal. With the fledgling company starting to spread its wings, we had the opportunity to get hands-on with its Brik Book Lego-compatible MacBook Case for the 13-inch MacBook Air. The case covers the lid of your compatible MacBook, giving not only protection, but a splash of color and fun. We had our hands on a grey lid with the Apple Brik pack, and it certainly brought a smile to our face as we put it together.
The iPhone 6 and 6s are attractive phones, and we don't think that anyone here would disagree with that. They are, however, also rather expensive phones -- which means that chances are, you're going to want to cover up your phone with a protective case. Instead of slapping on some bulky, ugly case, why not try the Clic 360, a case designed with both protection and style in mind.
Today we take a look at another rugged case for the iPhone 6/6s, a case that attempts to be super strong without all the extra bulk that other cases feature. It's called the X-Doria Defense Shield, and here's how it stands up against other cases we've tested.
Even though Apple has now made us 12.9-inch iPad Pro owners feel like we're using yesterday's technology, it's still a new enough toy and it is certainly still an expensive enough device that we twitch without an iPad Pro case. We'd honestly rather we didn't as the bare device is gorgeous to hold, but we twitch and since we use this iPad Pro everywhere, for everything, we would be convulsing by the end of the day if it weren't for a case like Snugg iPad Pro Case in Black Leather.
You may have noticed that we seem to pick on protective cases quite a bit in these parts, talking about how difficult it is to cope with their bulk. Fortunately, Griffin has sought to solve that problem with a rugged case that combats the bulk while still protecting your precious iPhone. We got our hands on a Survivor Slim, and took it for a spin to see how it holds up against other cases we've liked.
You have to wonder whether smartphones were designed by men: there's just so much about them that is handy when they're in a typical shirt pocket and not when you have to carry them in a bag. Yet if you are always going carry your phone in some kind of case, at least let that bag do more for you. Knomo's Bond Charging Leather Power Purse holds your iPhone with plenty of room to spare but also plenty of power: it comes with a battery.
