Scosche unveils several new iPhone MagSafe car mounts at CES 2022

Scosche Industries is kicking off CES 2022 with a new lineup of MagSafe-compatible versions of its MagicMount family of products, allowing owners of Apple’s latest iPhone models to easily anchor their smartphones in their cars without the need for special cases or magnetic plates.

First up is the MagicMount Pro Charge5, which is designed to both hold and charge the iPhone 12 and newer models using Apple’s MagSafe technology. Powerful Neodymium magnets align with the MagSafe ring of magnets in the iPhone to securely hold the device in place while driving, and Scosche has engineered the MagSafe attachment to handle everything from the smaller iPhone mini to the full-sized iPhone Pro Max.

The Charge5 is also fully MagSafe-certified, so it can fast-charge an iPhone 12 or later at full 15W speeds. Scosche has included a bonus 20W USB-C charging port to let you power up a second device at the same time.

Although owners of recent iPhone models will get the most from the MagicMount Pro Charge5, as with prior Scosche mounts, it’s also capable of charging any Qi-enabled iPhone or Android phone. These can be attached using the included Scosche MagicPlate. The MagicMount Pro Charge 5 will be available this spring in four mounting options at an MSRP of $65.

For those looking for a secure mount without built-in charging, the new MagicMount Pro MagSafe offers the same strong Neodymium magnets to hold an iPhone 12 or newer device securely in place. The Scosche MagicPlate is also included to offer compatibility with older iPhone models and Android smartphones. The MagicMount Pro MagSafe mounts will be available this spring in three mounting options at an MSRP of $45.

Finally, Scosche’s MagicMount MSC offers a solution for folks who are willing to supply their own Apple MagSafe charger. This mount features the same strong Neodymium magnets as Scosche’s other MagSafe mounts, which securely hold both an Apple MagSafe charger and an iPhone 12 or newer, so that you can keep your iPhone accessible and powered up at the same time.

The MagicMount MSC head swivels 360 degrees to allow you to view your iPhone in portrait or landscape orientation while still keeping the MagSafe charger properly aligned, so the iPhone remains firmly held in place. The MagicMount MSC is coming in February at an MSRP of $35.

Scosche’s new MagicMount accessories will also be available in a variety of mounting options, including Windows/Dash, Cup Holder, Dash/Vent, Telescoping, and more.

This Galaxy S23 Ultra case gives Samsung users a huge iPhone 14 feature
A person holding the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Samsung has finally revealed the next generation of Galaxy smartphones: the Galaxy S23, S23 Plus, and S23 Ultra. Though you can preorder the Galaxy S23 right now, the phones won’t be shipping until February 17, 2023. But you can always start prepping for your shiny new toy by picking up some of the best Galaxy S23 cases and S23 screen protectors right now.

I did notice one interesting case from Spigen, one of the more well-known and popular case makers with plenty of affordable offerings. I’m specifically pointing out the Spigen Ultra Hybrid OneTap MagSafe Ring case for the S23 Ultra. I’m not sure why this case is only for the Ultra and not the regular S23 or S23 Plus, but it is doing something that I wish all case manufacturers would do — for both Android and iPhone. And, yes, it's one of the best Galaxy S23 Ultra cases on the market.

The iPhone 15 Pro’s rumored new design is one I can’t wait for
The volume keys on the side of the iPhone 14 Plus.

Apple moved to a throwback design with flat edges for the iPhone 12 lineup, and that trend continues to date with the iPhone 14 series. All models of the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 have had the same flat edges covering the phones. But if a new rumor is to be believed, things could change with the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max.

According to a leaker who goes by ShrimpApplePro, the iPhone 15 Pro lineup could have thinner bezels and curved edges. Both the design features could combine to give the phones an "Apple Watch-like look." And you know what? I'm all for it.
I like it curvy, Apple

OtterBox Lumen Lunar New Year case on Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro

This Sunday, January 22, is the start of the Lunar New Year. According to the Chinese zodiac, this will be the year of the rabbit. To commemorate the occasion, OtterBox, a brand well-known for making tough and durable mobile accessories, has released a special Lunar New Year edition of its Lumen Series MagSafe case for the iPhone 14 lineup, which includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

I got my hands on the iPhone 14 Pro version of the case to check it out for myself, and I think it’s one of my new favorite cases — it looks absolutely fantastic. Plus, I’m a rabbit myself, so it’s going to hold a special place in my heart.
