Razer’s new MagSafe cooling fan brings RGB to iPhone gamers

Razer, the gaming company known for making unique RGB products — remember this striking RGB face mask? — alongside the usual gaming peripherals for PCs, is now targeting mobile gamers with the launch of its new $60 Razer Phone Cooler Chroma. The RGB cooling fan is MagSafe-compatible for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models, so it sticks to the back of devices with the help of magnets. There is a version for Android users, too, which has a clamp to attach to the smartphone.

The MagSafe-compatible Razer Phone Cooler Chroma is a flashy cooling accessory for iPhone gamers who play long sessions of Genshin Impact. The new Razer cooling fan for mobile gamers sports a 7-blade fan that can hit up to 6400 rpm to provide optimal cooling and has 12 RGB LEDs. It also won’t get too loud with a 30-decibel maximum noise output, and low profile. It features Bluetooth pairing and an app to control fan speeds and the RGB lights as well.

Now, there is one problem here in that despite being made for a mobile device, the Razer Phone Cooler Chrome isn’t exactly portable. You’ll need to sit near a power outlet or USB hub to use it. The Razer website says “the fan comes with a 1.5m USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable for fast, convenient power while you game. Requires compatible power adapter.” This means it will require you to plug in the fan to make it work, and presumably, there’s no internal battery here to keep you running when not connected, so it’s not really a portable accessory.

What does it work with?

At $60, the Razer Phone Cooler Chroma isn’t exactly a budget product either. You’re definitely paying for the fancy RGB lighting. The fan works with the iPhone 12 and above, but the company doesn’t want to make you feel left out if you don’t have the latest iPhones. For those with iPhone 11 and below or an Android smartphone, Razer is offering the cooler with a Universal Clamp that will easily hook up to the back of any modern smartphone.

Become an iPhone video master with this powerful new app
Screenshots from the Kino app.

Avid iPhone photographers will already know the excellent Halide camera app and how it can help transform the stills you take. But they will also know it does not support video, a point the company itself has been well aware of too. That’s why it has launched Kino, a video app for the iPhone that aims to bring similar Halide-style benefits to video instead of stills.

Kino is described as a video app for beginners and experts alike, but to get the most from it, you’ll likely need to be familiar with the iPhone’s video recording modes. For example, one of the main features that makes Kino stand out is Instant Grade, which uses the Log video recording mode, which was introduced on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Here are the 7 new emoji coming to your iPhone with iOS 18
2024 emoji.

It's that time of year again! The Unicode Consortium has released a preview of new emoji that will likely be included in a version of iOS 18 later this year or early next year. It will be up to Apple to officially add them to the next iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, macOS, and visionOS versions.

The new emoji announced today include ones for a sleepy face, fingerprint, leafless tree, vegetable root, harp, shovel, and splatter. The emoji examples provided by Unicode serve as starting points for Apple designers to create finished designs and are not the final images Apple will use. Google and other platform users will also work with these emoji as a starting point.

Apple may release a completely new type of iPhone in 2025

The iPhone 16 isn’t even out yet, but that hasn’t stopped rumors about the iPhone 17 from swirling already. One of the latest comes from The Information, and it claims that a thinner iPhone 17 may be released in 2025 as a completely new addition to the lineup. It’s reported to be code-named D23 internally, and it’s expected to be a major redesign — potentially as big of a redesign as the iPhone X was in 2017.

The main changes for the D23 iPhone are a very thin body and a smaller cutout in the display. There’s also some talk that Apple may replace the Dynamic Island with a pinhole cutout, and we may see that as soon as the anticipated iPhone 16 launch this fall. Other changes might include moving the rear camera from the upper-left corner to the top center. The screen could fall somewhere between the 6.1 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro and 6.9 inches of the iPhone 16 Pro Max.
