Playing fast-moving games on a touchscreen is often frustrating. And while iOS supports external game controllers, combining one with an iPhone can be cumbersome. But not with the OtterBox Mobile Gaming Clip. It attaches an iPhone to an Xbox controller in a surprisingly usable setup.

I did some gaming with the phone mount to see how it stands up to real-world use. Spoiler: it performed far better than the many cheap alternatives.

Anker’s magnetic iPhone battery pack looks like MagSafe but it’s not

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K doesn’t fully support MagSafe.

Anker will apparently launch the first power bank that uses the MagSafe system to magnetically attach to an iPhone 12 series model. The PowerCore Magnetic 5K will be able to transmit 5000mAh to Apple’s latest handsets through inductive charging.

However, the external battery doesn’t fully support the new MagSafe system so it doesn’t offer enhanced charging speeds.

If you own one of the iPhone 12 models — which Cult of Mac reviewers basically called the greatest thing since sliced bread — you know they’re fabulous smartphones. But even near-perfect devices can still be missing something.

And in this case, that “something” seems fairly obvious. But this Logiix Essential Kit — with an 18-watt power adapter and Lightning earphones — fills that void. It packs the accessories you wish your iPhone 12 came with out of the box.

Apple’s new MagSafe iPhone 12 charger has limitations. But the Elago MS1 Charging Stand wraps around Apple’s simple puck and makes it better.

I tested this useful accessory on my desk and at my bedside. Here’s why I like it.

Tiny iPhone and iPad charger will surprise you with its power [Review]

Aukey makes a USB-C charger that’s about as small at the standard 5 watt iPhone charger but provides far more power. The Minima 18W PD Charger can quickly juice up an Apple phone or tablet, as well as other devices. With it, that old 5W charger can go in a drawer where it belongs.

It’s a low-cost option, plus I tested the product with an iPhone and an iPad so you can be sure you’re getting your money’s worth.
