This Is The Best Dock You Can Get For The iPhone 6

Here it is, Twelve South's HiRise is arguably the best Lightning dock that you can get for the iPhone 6. And not just because it's a beautifully made and designed brushed metal charging dock, but mostly because it's one of the more versatile Lightning docks around. It's designed to fit the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. It'll even adjust to accommodate an iPad mini thanks to a case-friendly adjustable back support design and Lightning connector adapters that you can swap to fit different thickness of protective iPhone and iPad cases.

Apple To Introduce A 12-inch Ultra-Portable MacBook In Space Gray, Gold, Silver?

It is now rumored that Apple is planning to launch an entirely new ultra-portable 12-inch MacBook next year that will be as slim as current MacBook Air portables with a Retina display, a redesigned buttonless glass trackpad, and a quiet fan-less design powered by Intel's newly developed Broadwell dual-core processors allowing for a cooler operation while also offering a greater increase in battery life and performance over Haswell processors. But what's more exciting than rumored news of a possible 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is one that for the first time would be offered in new aluminum hues including silver, gold and Space Gray to coincide with the current iPhone 6 lineup and any future Apple product release such as the iPad, which is highly likely to be offered in a gold color whenever Apple introduces the next-generation models.

Apple's Official Leather & Silicone iPhone 6 Cases Aren't Anything New

You didn't think Apple would hold back in releasing a few mundane accessories for its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones right? Although this time Apple did not make a Lightning dock for the iPhone 6 models, it has brought back the slim and ever so minimal naturally dyed genuine leather case that was initially designed for the iPhone 5s. Apple's iPhone 6 Leather Case, as it is officially named, is made using the same exact smooth microfiber-lined aniline leather as the iPhone 5s variant, only that it has been obviously made to follow the iPhone 6's new curvy design in order to provide that snug fit we really liked in previous iterations. And while it'll offer minimal protection at a premium cost, the iPhone 6 Leather Case does offer somewhat of a luxurious feel. It's worth noting that unlike the iPhone 5s Leather Case, this one has a bottom-less opening since the iPhone 6 is such a slim device, exposing parts of the aluminum bezel and curved Gorilla Glass edge.

Apple Silently Discountiues The iPod Classic

Apple has quitely killed-off its iconic click-wheel iPod Classic today following the announcement of the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch devices today. The iPod Classic was the last legacy handheld device that used an internal mechanical hard drive, a 30-pin Dock Connector and Apple's iconic click-wheel, which was a favorite among music hoarders for its large 160GB storage capacity and $250 price tag. It's more than likely that we will see larger flash-based storage capacity iPods being introduced in the iPod touch and iPod nano lineup very soon. Currently, customers have the option of choosing between 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities for the iPod touch, and only 16GB for the 7th generation iPod nano.

Wirelessly Charge Your Moto 360 With This Portable Backup Battery

The day has finally come and Motorola's highly anticipated Android Wear smartwatch is here and it's available to purchase for $250. But now that many people have gotten their wrists wrapped in a elegantly designed smart timepiece that is the Moto 360, our biggest fear was realized when it was revealed that Motorola's premium smartwatch only had one day battery life. No matter how great and useful the Moto 360 is with its Android notifications and Google Now integration, charging your watch on a daily basis isn't fun. Nor is becoming tethered to a wall charger. And with no micro-USB port to charge the Moto 360 over regular means of charging like using a portable battery charger or even using your laptop, you're $250 investment may not live on your wrist for very long.

Fortunately there's still some hope. While the Moto 360 can be charged using its wireless charging dock, it also supports the universally accepted Qi wireless charging standard. And that means it can also be recharged on the go using a special kind of a battery. Notably a battery like the QiStone+. It's a portable backup battery with a respectable 4,000mAh capacity that features Qi wireless charging support in addition to its regular USB charging port. Meaning you can set your Moto 360 on top of its smooth pebble-like surface to wirelessly charge while out on a trip without having to carry around the Moto 360's charging dock and wall adapter cable. How awesome is that? And why hasn't Motorola thought about doing this in the first place?
