According to sources briefed on new specifications that Apple shared with vendors in its Made for iOS (MFi) licensing program, the latest iPhone 11 models could soon support new kinds of third-party strobe and flash accessories that sync with the iPhone’s camera shutter button.
The Apple Watch Series 4 is perhaps one of my favorite tech gadgets of all time, and as you might come to expect, I use a plethora of third-party accessories to augment my Apple Watch experience.
I’m far from the only Apple Watch Series 4 user in the world, but that’s not to say everyone knows about the best gadgets that can be paired with Apple's smartwatch. For that reason, I’ve compiled this list of my favorite accessories with the hope that it might help some of you in your search.
Accessory maker Anker today opened pre-orders for the industry's very first officially sanctioned Lighting to USB-C cables ahead of their launch later this month.
Fortnite hit App Store in April 2018 and now this tremendously popular free-to-play battle royale title can be played with any MFi-certified controller.
Typically, the best accessories for iPhone are those listed as Apple MFi Certified. To find out whether the iPhone accessory you want to buy is certified, read on.
Apple a few days ago updated its “Made for iOS” (MFi) branding and now we're learning that the company also added refreshed new specifications for implementing USB-C ports and a Lightning to 3.5mm output cable on MFi accessories.
As first reported by Chargerlab, Apple has updated the logos for its Made-for-iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) program. The biggest difference is that the device icons have been removed, replaced instead with an Apple logo.
As we reported, Apple and Australian hearing aids maker Cochlear struck a partnership in July. Today, Cochlear released its first product born out of that partnership—a tiny “Made for iOS”-certified hearing implant that can stream audio wirelessly from an iOS device directly to a surgically embedded Nucleus 7 sound processor.
Apple will soon allow vendors who design MFi-certified accessories to build support for an obscure but already-existent port in order to ease some of the connectivity and adapter woes associated with Lightning-based headphones. 9to5Mac reported that the company might market UAC, an intermediary in headphone cables, as “Ultra Accessory Connector” (UAC).
Citing sources at Apple, The Verge adds that UAC is an old plug you might have seen with your Nikon DSLR camera rather than a proprietary new connector type from Apple. Apple's ultimate goal with UAC, The Verge claims, is making Lightning and USB-C work better together rather than replacing them with a brand new I/O port.
I do a lot of work at my office desk at home, and for that reason alone, I have a love for things that help keep my work space uncluttered. One of the things I like to have that helps with that is a good quality dock that I can use to put my iPhone or iPad somewhere without it taking up much real estate where I’ll be putting my papers or elbows.
The Gravitas dock by Henge Docks is a good choice, and in this review, we’ll give you an up-close look at it.
Most people experience all-day battery life with the Apple Watch, whether it’s the single core first generation model, or the dual core Series 1 or 2 versions that were launched just this year. While this is true for most people who use their Apple Watch regularly, new apps like Pokémon GO for the Apple Watch threaten to deplete your Apple Watch’s tiny battery much faster.
With that being the case, investing in some kind of portable power pack made specifically for the Apple Watch, like the Ugreen Magnetic Charger, is a good idea.
When you’re a proud owner of both an iPhone and an Apple Watch, you might feel reluctant to have two separate charging docks, each with their own separate wires running across your desk to keep them charged.
Fortunately, Twelve South has you covered with their all new HiRise Duet charging platform, which not only gives you a place to charge your iPhone upright, but also provides an integrated charging disc for your Apple Watch.
