Belkin recalls WIZ003 Portable Wireless Charger sold on Apple store

Belkin is a trusted brand when it comes to accessories for smartphones and tablets to the point that even Apple carries some of its products on its own store.

PopSockets iPhone grips and mounts embrace MagSafe tech

Perhaps to distance itself from the embarrassment of AirPower, Apple reused its old MagSafe brand from the early MacBook days for its own spin on wireless charging for iPhones. Unsurprisingly, this has resulted in many accessory makers rushing to adapt to the new technology as well as its new requirements, especially those that make use of iPhones' rears for one thing or another. Those include not just the usual culprits like cases but also phone grips, which is why PopSockets, one of the more popular manufacturers of the latter, have come out with new iPhone 12 accessories that take MagSafe into account.
