If you're a fan of iPhone bumpers, the Seidio Tetra Metal Bumper case for iPhone 6 (only) is one to look at. There's an inner bumper of soft TPU and a machined aluminum outer ring that snaps into place. John Martellaro liked it a lot.
Griffin’s Survivor Core case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus provides rugged protection in a thin case with a clear back. The case is rated for a 6.6 foot drop, and there is extra protection on all four corners.
The Q Card Case from CM4, Inc. provides a place for up to three credit cards and a bill or two while providing good protection for the back of the iPhone 6. However, the external look bothered this reviewer.
Griffin’s Survivor All-Terrain cases for the iPhone 6 and 6 plus have all the expected features of a high-protection product. Both cases support the ability to use the fingerprint scan option, Touch ID, through the protective cover. Best of all, the iPhone is easy to insert or remove.
The new Waterfield Spinn pouch case for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is made of full grain leather, features an ultrasuede lining and comes in three rustic colors. Notable is the option to have it custom built for a bare iPhone or one with a very slim or Apple case. A belt loop is optional.
For older cars without Bluetooth, Mpow’s Steambot Y Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter allows users to make hands-free calls, listen to music or GPS voice navigation via their FM radio, and, with built in USB port, charge iPads or iPhones on the go.
Knomo’s Knomad Mini Portable Organizer is a classy, sturdy, and useful accessory case for anyone who needs “stuff” when using their iPad mini away from home. Best of all it can hold an iPad mini with its Smart Cover in place and even has room for a slim charger.
Parallels Desktop 10 for the Mac is now shipping. As with previous versions, Parallels has added some excellent new features that make the new version compelling and the upgrade price worthwhile. John Martellaro takes a closer look.
The Rugged Folio Bluetooth iPad mini keyboard and case from Zagg is made of polycarbonate, silicone and steel. It includes a backlit keyboard, complete protection when closed, and a removable portion that lets you keep the iPad mini protected when you don’t need the keyboard. The battery lasts for up to two years on one charge.
Nbryte’s Tablift offers an alternative way to stand up your iPad in a hands free way for bed time or video time. It has flexible, stable legs and can be used with standard iPads and the iPad mini.
