While tempered glass screen protectors are definitely becoming a big trend, nothing beats the super inexpensiveness of traditional film protectors. As technology improves, the price decreases exponentially.
When I go camping, I tend to leave my iPhone behind. Not because I’m trying to be closer to nature, or unplug from the world, but because I tend to worry about getting dirt, marshmallow goo, ash, or beer on my device. Even if I’m brave enough to bring it to the campsite, I still won’t take it anywhere near a body of water.

Apple yesterday surprised fans by releasing a $40 Lightning dock for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which works with official Apple cases. A $10 pricier than Apple’s previous docks, it can be used to listen to music and sync your device with a computer while charging your iPhone’s battery at the same time.
What the spec sheet available on the Online Apple Store doesn’t tell you is that the dock requires iOS 8 or later for audio out. The requirement is listed in a support document for Apple’s Lightning docks, as noted by 9to5Mac. Read More

Since Apple Watch can be used as a remote control for the iPhone’s camera, you can bet that wide-shot personal pictures will become the new trend, especially since you don’t have to use one of those silly “selfie sticks” to get a shot of yourself in front of the Eiffel Tower.
I love the additional screen real estate my iPhone 6 Plus gives me, but it makes one-handed usage very difficult. I can reach about halfway up the display comfortably, but anything higher than that—say, when I need to tap an app’s back button—and I have to shimmy my hand up the device.
Halo Back is a new iPhone accessory that wants to help significantly reduce the need for shimmying. Billed as the world’s first “smart” screen protector, the Halo attaches to the front of your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, and gives you a virtual back button within thumb’s reach—left of the Home button.

Pong approached me to write a review of the new Pong iPhone 6 cases with the bold claim the case will prevent cell phone radiation from damaging the user. Of course, I have no way to judge this for myself. Consequently, the information in this article, not so much of a review, is from the information found on the Pong website.
Naturally, I was extremely curious to take a look. While I can account for the build quality, which appears to be very rugged and well formed, the remainder of the radiation conversation will reside on a summary of the details from Pong. With four US patents, why not put on my tin hat and take a look. Read More

These days, people don’t need wallets as much as they just need a pocket or two to hold a couple of credit cards and an ID. Even if you need to bring cash with you somewhere, chances are, you don’t need much.
Although Apple has made the screen larger on its latest line of iPhones, the keyboard is still small and difficult to use. One easy solution to that problem is an external keyboard.
