Olloclip Intros Its 4-in-1 Camera Lens Accessory For iPhone 6, 6 Plus

Olloclip has unveiled its 4-in-1 clip-on lens system today that is compatible with both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The $80 Olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens features the same four different lens types as before to enhance your iPhoneography including fisheye, wide-angle, 10x and 15x macro lenses that can be interchanged in a matter of seconds. The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus version of the 4-in-1 Olloclip retains the same great caseless clip-on mounting functionality without the need of any extra parts, but it has also been redesigned to work with the iPhone's back-facing iSight camera as well as the front-facing FaceTime camera thanks to its lightweight and compact dual-sided lens adapter design.

Olloclip says that it has updated the wide-angle and fisheye lenses for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to offer a greater field of view while also optimizing them for "selfie" photography in that you'll be able to take epic group selfies with more background squeezed into your shots when you're taking personal selfies.

The 4-in-1 Olloclip Photo Lens system can also be word when not used on your iPhone using one of the three multi-colored wearable pendants included with the Olloclip that let you clip it onto things like clothing and key rings. While it won't be available until late November, you'll be able to pre-order the 4-in-1 Olloclip Photo Lens for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus today for $80 in multiple color options including color-matching Space Gray, gold, white, silver and in red. Like before, it's expected to be available to purchase at all Apple and Best Buy retail stores.

Apple's 27-inch 5K Retina iMac Has User Upgradeable RAM & CPU

Apple's highest resolution iMac ever, the new 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display, was recently announced and went on sale yesterday starting at $2,499. But even though it features the highest resolution 5K IPS display on the market at a relatively reasonable price considering there's an entire powerful computer behind it, upgrading the stock 8GB of RAM when ordering from Apple to 16GB or 32GB will cost you an additional $200 and $600, respectively. I don't know about you, but paying $600 extra for 32GB is just unacceptable.

Fortunately, just like the 2013 non-Retina 27-inch iMac, Apple's iMac with 5K Retina display features user upgradeable memory that is easily accessible from the back of the machine without any tools required. Third party memory manufacturers like Crucial offer a compatible 16GB kit that is identical to the stock RAM that Apple puts into the 27-inch 5K Retina iMac, but costs way less. The Crucial 16GB upgrade kit will cost you less than $140, and it consists of two 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM modules - which is the same configuration that Apple uses. Two 16GB Crucial RAM kits will upgrade your iMac to 32GB for less than $280 compared to the absurd markup of $600 Apple charges for its RAM upgrade option.

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.
