Mophie is bringing modular functionality to the iPhone with the Hold Force case

While a few Android devices with modular designs have been released over the past few years, Apple has resisted taking the modular route with the iPhone. Mophie, however, is here to change that with its latest line of iPhone cases, called Hold Force.

Hold Force, for the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, basically allows users to swap out the back of the case, depending on what they need or want to accomplish. Like the Moto Z, this is done using magnets that allow modular components to be snapped on or off the back of the case quickly and easily.

The case is available in nine different color options, many of which are see-through. There are a total of three modules available for the device right now.

The first is called Wallet, and as the name suggests, it includes two pockets for credit cards. Folio, which is the second module, expands on this with an extra card slot, while also moving all of the card slots to fit inside of the lid.

Perhaps the most interesting module, however, is the Powerstation Plus Mini, which adds a 4,000mAh battery pack to the phone, giving it an extra 12 hours of battery like. It also has a switch-tip connector, allowing the user to switch between Lightning and micro USB — so if you’re switching from an Android phone and have microUSB cables everywhere, you can still use them to charge your phone.

The only thing it’s missing? A headphone jack. Mophie says that its working on other cases that bring the headphone jack to the iPhone 7, like this case by Fuze, but they’re not available just yet.

Mophie’s new case is available for $40, and you can get the Wallet and Folio add-ons for $20 each. The Powerstation Plus Mini comes at a little extra, with a price tag of $60, but if you buy those accessories with the case, you can get the Wallet and Folio for $10 each and the Powerstation for as little as $40.

You’ve probably never seen an iPhone case like this before

You’ve probably never seen an iPhone case like this before, and there’s a very good chance you’ve never used one like it before, either. It’s the Oceanic+ Dive Housing, and it seals your iPhone in a pressured environment to keep it safe so you take photos deep underwater without risking damage. What’s more, it turns your iPhone into a dive computer, and it works alongside your Apple Watch Ultra or Apple Watch Ultra 2.

You may be familiar with Oceanic+, the app that turns the Apple Watch Ultra into a dive computer. It’s being updated to version 2.0, and along with a suite of new features comes compatibility with the new Dive Housing. Put your iPhone inside it, and an automatic vacuum pump starts to seal it safely inside, a process completed after a few minutes and various leak tests. It’s then ready to be taken underwater to a depth of 60 meters and controlled using the Bluetooth-connected physical buttons on the case.

Before you buy an iPhone 15 Pro case, make sure it has this one thing

Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro arrived in the hands of many people, including myself, over the weekend. So far, I’ve been loving having a phone that's more lightweight due to the use of titanium in the frame instead of stainless steel. I also love no longer needing a Lightning cable when I have a plethora of USB-C cables in the house.

One standout feature of the iPhone 15 Pro models is the Action button. While a lot of people have been going nuts with using Shortcuts for the Action button, I’ve been keeping it simple so far and just using it to launch the Camera app.
