iPhone cases don’t have to be boring and unpractical. With Edge, you get cool LEDs that notify you of incoming alerts for any app, let you keep an eye on battery levels at a glance, and more.
It’s just one of the awesome ideas in this week’s Crowdfund Roundup. We also have an ultra-affordable Android Wear smartwatch, the world’s smartest nightlight, the coolest e-bike ever, and a high-quality and affordable 3D printer.
Summer’s finally here! Along with the warm weather has come bunch of hot new deals in the Cult of Mac Store. This round, we’ve got a bundle of top shelf Mac apps that you can name your price for. There’s also a universal mount and grip for any mobile camera, and an iPhone case that can survive almost any fall. We’ve even got a powerful backup battery that you’ll never lose thanks to a built-in Bluetooth tracker.
If you’ve got an iPhone, you have one of the best mobile cameras out there. But having a good camera and a good eye isn’t enough to make the most of your iPhone’s photo potential. That’s why we’ve rounded up these deals on tools for taking your mobile image-making to the next level. We’ve got phone and tablet stands that fold into the size of a credit card, a hand-held stabilizer, a grippy tripod mount, and case that includes a wide-angle lens upgrade. Read on for more details:
iPhone 8 leaks are dropping thick and fast ahead of its official unveiling this September. We’ve gotten our hands on some exclusive leaked schematics direct from Apple’s factories, plus new case photos that give us an idea of what the tenth anniversary upgrade will look like.
We’ve also put together some awesome 3D prints that give us a feel for the iPhone 8’s larger form factor that is expected to accommodate a new OLED display.
Accessory makers are already manufacturing cases for Apple’s next-generation iPad Pros. According to two that have leaked early, they’ll come with tweaked designs, while the new 10.5-inch model could have a taller display.
Apple’s own battery case, cleverly titled the Smart Battery Case, has been on the market for over two years now. I had never really taken an interest in it; it was just another battery case, only this one looked like it was pregnant with an iPod.
That was until last week, when I was desperately in need of some form of charger for my iPhone and decided to pick one up. Since then, my thoughts on what was just an ugly, overpriced battery case have totally changed.
Check out the video below to find out why it’s earned a place in my heart — and is now my favorite iPhone case.
A new alleged iPhone case leak appears to back up some previous reports about the forthcoming handset — including the fact that it won’t have a rear-mounted Touch ID sensor, as had been rumored.
This suggests that Apple has found a way of integrating a fingerprint sensor into the display of the new iPhone, rather than having to shift it to the back as devices such as the new Samsung Galaxy S8 have done. Apple was rumored to be having problems getting the embedded Touch ID tech to work.
Why wait for Apple to bring wireless charging to the iPhone when you can add it yourself?
ZENS is an iPhone 7 case that adds Qi charging capabilities, allowing it to be used with almost any wireless charging pad. It’s also slim and protective, and it comes bundled with a wireless charger for under $60.
Snapping selfies with a drone has never been easier, thanks to SELFLY, the autonomous drone that’s also an iPhone case.
It’s just one of the awesome projects in this week’s Crowdfund Roundup. We’ve also got an intelligent headband that promises to improve your sleep and your dreams, a smart dog collar that can detect things like disease and stress, and a 21st-century turntable.
