A new batch of iRig accessories from IK Multimedia should make life easier for podcasters and YouTubers who produce on their iPads or iPhones. The gear looks pretty sweet, and — if my experience is anything to go by — it should be well-built, and sound great, too.
Let’s take a look at the new IK Multimedia gadgets.
Keeping your iPhone charged on the go usually means carrying at least a Lightning cable and a backup battery. But with the Nomad, you get everything you need in one accessory. And right now, you’ve got a rare chance to snag one at a massive discount.
Anyone who’s ever spent a half hour searching for the TV remote can understand the appeal of the Tile Sticker. Glue it to anything relatively flat and you’ll never misplace that item again, as your iPhone can have this tiny tag play a loud alarm. Or put one on the headphones you can never find, or maybe the back of your ID badge.
There are also improved versions of the Tile Pro, Tile Mate and Tile Slim out today to help with finding your keys or wallet. Just don’t get lost in our reviews of all four new item trackers.
Apple is trying to bring the advanced lighting of a photo studio to your iPhone without actual lights. And while featured effects like High-Key Mono and Stage Light can bring a studio-like finish to your iPhone portraits, software and algorithms can’t beat the real thing.
Profoto, makers of highly regarded and expensive studio lights, introduced this week two compact studio flashes designed for mobile photography.
We take so many pictures with our phones, it might make sense to think of them as cameras that also make calls. But they don’t quite feel or work like a dedicated camera, unless you get this decked-out accessory.
Adonit actually found a way to make taking vacation pictures with your iPhone easier. The PhotoGrip Qi turns your phone into an old-school point-and-shoot. Plus it includes a tripod with a remote shutter button. On top of that, its flexible iPhone clamp wirelessly charges the handset.
I still remember the days before phone cameras. Come see how well Adonit did re-creating that experience.
We get iPhones as much for the camera as for any of the other features. But as great as mobile photography has become, it’s still up against the limitations that come with being, you know, a phone. So if you’re looking to take your iPhone photos to the next level, these four upgrades are for you, from wireless charging gimbals to DSLR-style grips, 360 camera extensions and more.

Hands up if this ever happens to you: you remembered your iPhone or iPad and an external battery but forgot the charging cable. That frustration isn’t possible with the myCharge HubMax Universal as it has both a Lightning and a USB-C cable built in. Even better, this 10050 mAh battery has a pair of wall prongs so it can plug straight into a socket.
Go on the road with me as I put the HubMax Universal through its paces.
