Best of Innovations in iPhone Tech at CES 2020
The Consumer Electronics Show or CES is all about technology, where companies vie for attention with all their latest innovations. And with Apple’s iPhone being one of the most used smartphone devices in the world, it is no surprise that there are a lot of technology exhibits showcased during the event that are centred on iPhones.
Read on to find the coolest iPhone tech that made it to CES 2020.
1. Incipio Organicore Case
While there is no dearth of iPhone cases, here is one that the makers claim is plant-based and is hence, entirely compostable. The cases are available in four colour options and are currently applicable to the iPhone 11 range. But do not mistake it for a gimmick as the case does not compromise on its core functionality and can protect your iPhone from drops of up to six feet.
2. MophiePowerstation Go
How many power banks do you think can jump-start your car, besides also juicing up your iPhone?
The MorphiePowerstation Go is one such power bank that can do both. In fact, the power bank comes bundled with jumper cables to let you take care of your car. Aiding in that is the massive 44,400 mWh battery that the power bank packs in. It also offers a 65-watt AC port (for powering laptops), twin USB A ports along with a wireless charging panel which is Qi-compatible.
3. Welt Smart Belt Pro
The Welt Smart Belt Pro isn’t just to keep your pants in place. Rather, it can perform a variety of tasks such as keeping a tab on your waist measurements, warning you when it feels you are overeating and monitoring your gait. The belt offers the world’s first fall prevention function and sends an alert to the companion app on your iPhone.
4. Katana Safety Wallet
It’s something that you need to attach to your iPhone and has a built-in siren as well as a silent alarm that you can trigger during emergencies. The accompanying app will let you send an alert notification to contacts set by you. More impressive is the Walk-With-Me feature, which when invoked will keep an operator on standby just for you who will be available till you feel safe again.
5. Griffin GaN USB-C power adapters
The new Griffin GaN USB-C power adapter only looks tiny but offers as good a performance as any other adapter. The chargers are made from gallium nitride, which allows for the semiconductor elements to be considerably smaller. There are chargers with 30W capacity and dual USB-C ports for devices like an iPhone and iPad. There is also a 45W and 96W charger for 13-inch MacBook Pro and 16-MacBook Pro respectively.
6. Razer Dual-Sided iPhone Game Controller
The Razer game controllers attach to the top and bottom of the device and plugin via the phone’s Lightning connector. The controllers have its own Lightning connector too for better connectivity and reduced latency times. For game playing, the controllers come with a directional pad, two thumbsticks, A-B-X-Y buttons, and shoulder bumpers. What’s more, the controller is Apple certified.
7. iPhone-Connected NURVV Run Insoles
The NURVV Run are insoles and come with 32 embedded sensors, each capable of measuring data at 1,000 times per second. That includes your running information like cadence, step length, pronation, and balance that are captured and sent to an accompanying NURVV iPhone app. It can be used in the rain and mud as well and comes with five hours battery backup time.
8. Speck Presidio2 iPhone Case
The new Presidio2 iPhone cases from Speck offer airbag like protection to the iPhone by creating air capsules along the edges to cushion the impact of a fall. Spec said the cases offer antimicrobial protection too by curbing the growth of stain and odour causing bacteria, besides providing protection from drops of up to 13-feet.
9. Anker iPhone LED Flash
What makes the new Anker iPhone LED Flash unique is that it connects directly to the iPhone’s camera app. That way, the flash comes on precisely the moment you shoot a picture, which is unlike many a flash available that remain on for the entire duration and are hence, battery guzzlers. The Anker flash is however compatible only with iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.
10. PopPower Home Charger
The PopPower Home Charger is a charging mat but with an indentation in the middle where the iPhone’s PopGrip will fit in. This will save you from having to remove the PopGrip each time you need to wirelessly charge your iPhone. The PopPower is Qi-compatible as well and supports 15-watt charging.
