Powerstrips are great for expaning the amount of AC outlets in your house or office, but with so many different devices taking up space, it is difficult to have the right combination of ports to charge your iPhone, Apple Watch, FitBit, tablet, Nintendo Switch and so on. The Anker PowerPort Strip PD 2 mini is equipped with 2 outlets and 3 USB ports for powering a variety of different devices at once. It is great for expanding your charging options at home or for trips away from home such as vacations, cruises and in dorm rooms.
Whether you are camping in the backcountry, traveling abroad or domestically, or even just at work or home, a power bank is almost a must-have convenience. The tech has come a long way in the past ten years, with most quality devices offering several full fast charges for even the most power hungry iPhones, while remaining portable. With a power bank you won't have to worry about finding electrical outlets when you are away from home, and when you are home you can charge your phone at your side rather than leaving it out of reach because the wall outlet is too far away.
Apple Arcade offers unlimited access to over 100 titles with a free trial and monthly subscription. Most titles support the use of a gaming controller, which brings the Apple Arcade experience closer to that of dedicated gaming consoles. Even regular App Store games can be easier to play with a controller, instead of touching the screen or using the Apple TV remote.
As expected, Apple has launched the official Smart Battery Case for its 2019 iPhone lineup. The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max each have their own Smart Battery Case models in various colors. This year the case features a dedicated camera button, which launches the Camera app and captures still images or video right away. The camera button works whether the iPhone is locked or unlocked, further increasing the iPhone 11 lineup's focus on photography.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones are great for untethered listening. But many devices have traditional headphone connectors, rendering AirPods, Beats, and other wireless options useless. Apple officially ditched the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and later, making the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter the missing link for wired headphones. Twelve South now makes a similar adapter to connect the latest wireless headphones such as AirPods directly to a 3.5mm headphone port.
