Today I'm going to tell you about my favorite smartphone accessory of the year, case of the year, cover of the year - all that, all in one.

Galaxy S10 case spills the good news

Galaxy S10 case spills the good news

This morning a case for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 was leaked with a very short video. In-hand, this case makes it appear as though the Galaxy S10 - in at least one iteration - will have a rather extended camera array. That'll be either three or four lenses, depending on the extent to which Samsung thought they needed to go. There's also a key at the bottom.

iPhone XS Smart Battery Case leaked with tipped quick release

Yesterday, reports of a watchOS icon seemingly confirming a new Smart Battery Case for iPhone began making the rounds. The Smart Battery Case, as many of Apple fans will likely remember, was a first-party battery case made primarily for the iPhone 6s but also compatible with the iPhone 6 and 7.

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone might be making a comeback

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone might be making a comeback

Though the list of Apple-made iPhone accessories is fairly short, one that manages to stand out is the Smart Battery Case. This case took on established brands like Mophie in the external power space when it launched for the iPhone 6s back in 2015, and though its design was a little strange, it got the job done well enough. Even though cases that offer an extra battery always seem to be in demand, Apple has never released a follow-up to its Smart Battery Case.

iPhone XR Clear Case released at Apple, at last

Apple finally released a clear case for the iPhone XR at their stores around the world and online. In the Apple Store online, the iPhone XR Clear Case doesn't look any different from the rest of the similarly-implemented cases for other phones, save that it fits the iPhone XR specifically. This clear case allows the iPhone XR's many color options to shine through, whereas previous other cases blocked the colors almost entirely, making said colors a moot point.

iPad Pro 2018 (or 2019) leak looks like HP TouchPad

Remember that time when HP sold Palm and had a fire sale on a very rounded-corner tablet by the name of TouchPad? It's almost as if the designers of this rumored iPad Pro 2018 saw the outside edge of that old tablet and decided it'd be good for the inside of their newest slate. What we're looking at today is a set of images of what's likely our first look at the iPad Pro 12.9 for the year 2018... or 2019.

iPhone XR is getting an Apple-made clear case

Though the iPhone XS and XS Max have been here for a couple of weeks now, Apple isn't quite done with the iPhone releases. Later this month, the company will release the third and final iPhone for 2018: the iPhone XR.

Spigen iPhone Xs, Xs Max cases launch a few hours too early

Spigen iPhone Xs, Xs Max cases launch a few hours too early

It’s not uncommon for accessory makers, especially case makers, to leak details about upcoming smartphones. It’s good for publicity and business, especially for the smaller brands. But when a big brand shows off its wares hours before the official announcement, you can only presume someone was too excited and jumped the gun too soon. That definitely seems to be the case, pardon the pun, with Spigen, who has just revealed its products for two of the three new iPhones coming 12th September.

Essential Phone PH-1 Toast custom-cut wood cover Review

Essential Phone PH-1 Toast custom-cut wood cover Review

The Essential Phone PH-1 is a victim of circumstance - it's not the most traditional phone on the block. Because the Essential Phone PH-1's creators didn't succeed the way they'd hoped with their first phone, the phone's future is in question. In its current state, the PH-1 isn't exactly the most likely candidate for custom-made or ready-made accessories or cases of any sort. The folks at TOAST seem to have tossed caution to the wind, because they've got a wood cover for the Essential Phone - one they've got available to custom-cut, too.
