ShiftCam 2.0 and ProLens: truly mobile iPhone pro photography

ShiftCam 2.0 and ProLens: truly mobile iPhone pro photography

Lens clips for iPhones and others smartphones are nothing new. They offered interchangeable lenses, a feature that still escapes even the most advanced smartphone camera. They all, however, have the same design disadvantage. You have to attach the lenses every time you use them and detach them when done. Not only do you run the risk of losing those lenses, that’s also precious seconds lost trying to set it all up. Last year, startup Shiftcam introduced a case and lens system that resolved all those. Now they’re back with ShiftCam 2.0, a more refined and more powerful version that won’t make it look like you have an armored phone in your pocket.

Apple’s good reason for slowing old iPhones won’t help

Apple’s good reason for slowing old iPhones won’t help

It's fair to say that Apple's admission this week that no, your old iPhone getting slower isn't just in your imagination, has proved divisive. For years, the idea that an older iPhone would perform more slowly than it once did was dismissed as paranoia. Now, it turns out, Apple actually is adjusting power profiles on handsets like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, arguing that it's doing it for good reasons.

Amazon made its own iPhone dongle, beating Belkin in price

Amazon made its own iPhone dongle, beating Belkin in price

Last year, Apple removed the standard 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7, a "courageous" move, but one that has put us in a world where dongles are now the norm. With Google's new Pixel 2 smartphones also ditching the 3.5mm jack, the era when we could charge our devices and use wired headphones at the same time is quickly coming to an end. Fortunately Amazon is here to rectify the situation, at least for iPhone users, with a dongle that slightly undercuts Belkin's new solution in price.
