iPad Pro 10.5 accessories: why you need these

The totally new 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the new darling in the tablet market, eclipsing even its larger contemporary. Sure, the iPad Pro 12.9 is an upgrade over its predecessor, but the 10.5 model is praised for hitting the Goldilocks size of being "just right" for creativity, productivity, and portability.

Pioneer Rayz Rally turns your iPhone into a speakerphone

Bluetooth speakers and headsets have become even more popular thanks to Apple ditching the headphone jack on its latest iPhones. Wireless, however, hasn't been the only way to connect audio accessories, even before the iPhone 7.

It has just announced the Microsoft Modern Keyboard, which looks exactly like the relatively new Surface Keyboard, except it has an extra key hiding a fingerprint scanner.
