With the post-launch dust now settled for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPad mini 4, two accessory makers have released four batteries designed to fuel Apple’s latest devices. While they carry significant price premiums over top-rated batteries we’ve covered, both vendors have received Apple’s seal of approval for device compatibility.
Clear cases for the iPhone 6s offer pluses and minuses. They’re great because the clear plastic really shows off the beautiful design of the iPhone, which is why so many people love them so much. On the other hand, they’re almost always so thin and frail that they offer almost no protection for your iPhone.
Well, the BGR Deals team has the perfect solution: The Speck Products CandyShell Case for iPhone 6/6S, is crystal clear, but it’s nice and thick so it actually provides protection.
For a platform that has a decent built in email app, the iPhone has a surprisingly large array of third party contenders vying for your attention. It’s an interesting situation, as any casual users never really feel the need to use anything beyond the default app that Apple includes with the iPhone. But for heavy email addicts, there’s an embarrassment of riches, with a number of alternative apps, each delivering their own small improvements to the email experience.
Recently, Microsoft introduced its own email client for iOS and called it Outlook to capitalize on its long history with email on the desktop. The surprising thing is that Outlook hits a home run. It’s one of the best — if not the best — email app for iOS.
Outlook starts strong with broad support for pretty much every kind of email. Most email clients for iOS have clever features, but only support a few kinds of email. Outlook, on the other hand, gives you a universal inbox for POP, IMAP, Exchange mail, Gmail, and other common webmail services, and pushes all of it so you get notifications for all inbound email, not just Exchange mail. It’s a much welcomed agnostic approach that is uncharacteristic of Microsoft.
