Let’s face it: Simpler isn’t always better. Sometimes a watch band is just a watch band, but sometimes you’d rather it be a fashion statement. If you want understated elegance, there’s classic black leather. Or perhaps something bright and exotic is the ticket — say, orange ostrich.

Whether it’s because you need to spruce up for a big event, or you just want to look smashing, check out these luxurious and exotic bands, available at the Cult of Mac Apple Watch Store.

In shopping for a stunning case to outfit your new iPhone XS or XS Max, you might spot an accessory that hints at an even richer lifestyle — one that holds two iPhones.

People with two phones, one for personal and the other assigned by a boss for work, is not that unusual. But, elites in the Middle East, where Apple has about 60 percent of the smartphone market, tend to carry two iPhones by choice.

For those of us who own more than one iPhone, with a penchant for carrying them both around, the Dual Case is worth a look. For the rest of us, check out Ullu’s great lineup of iPhone cases for the XS and XS Max.
