We belong in the camp that says the best iPhone case is the AppleCare insurance program. For we love the feel of the phone without anything getting in the way. Unfortunately, whatever you may feel about cases, there are jobs where they are a practical necessity. If you have a job in, say, construction -- or maybe you spend your day running around a hospital, then the OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone 6/6s is startlingly strong, and surprisingly cheap.
Accessory manufacturer Mophie has expanded its collection of battery cases for mobile devices with models for iPhones including wireless charging. The Juice Pack Wireless for the iPhone 6, 6s, and Plus versions of both can provide power to the smartphones and take on power itself via a wireless charging point, with the company also unveiling two Charge Force mounts to provide power to the battery cases.
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.
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.
So you're looking for a case that features a sleek design to accent your iPhone, we get that. You want something that's every bit as elegant as your phone, something that is going to complement it, not hide it. That's why we're taking the chance to talk about a new line of cases we checked out, a set of six Alto iPhone 6/6s cases that feature real, vegetable-tanned Italian leather.
We've never been a huge fan of battery cases because they tend to be so bulky that they become uncomfortable to hold, or bulge so much in our pockets that sitting down ceases to be a comfortable option. But what if there was a case that fixed these problems? Fortunately, if you've got an iPhone 6/6s or 6/6s Plus, you could take a look at the Kuke.
This week's Rumor Roundup includes a quick lesson on what a "confirmation" of the truth of a given rumor entails, as much to educate our readers on how to discern logical flaws as to instruct our competitors. This time, we have a likely -- albeit accidental -- confirmation that forthcoming iPads will support the Apple Pencil drawing stylus, and we have "confirmation" that the iPhone SE and iPhone 7 will look exactly as rumors suggest, because prototype cases made based on possibly-fake "specs" fit expectations. See how that works?
Phone cases are personal, and studies have shown that people across all cultures feel more attached to their phones when they're personalized. After all, your phone case should do more than protect your phone; it should show off a little of your personality. Today, we reach out to all the car enthusiasts out there, with a set of three car-themed phone cases from MobileFun.
Apple's three-year legal case over price-fixing of e-books has ended, with the US Supreme Court saying that it will not allow the company to appeal. The court will not listen to Apple's contention that a 2014 settlement requiring it to pay $450 million in costs and damages is wrong. That's the Supreme Court's right, and all legal cases have to end somewhere, even if more nebulous ones do seem to go on for a lot longer. Yet this isn't a nebulous case -- and the result, in my opinion, is wrong.
Cell phone battery capacity can be a tough thing tor people to manage with email, social connections, media, and a myriad of other information at fingertips length. It's absurd to think of time spent without a cell phone, so trying to make it through the day between the charges at the socket might be troublesome without an external power source. While Apple recently released a new battery extension case for iPhone 6 models, there are third-party options like the Tylt Energi Sliding Case available to ease battery life woes.
