From a stethoscope to a stun gun, there’s no denying the increased quirkiness and arguable usefulness that these iPhone cases bring to the table. However, what if you wanted to buff up every time you picked up your iPhone for whatever reason? Enter the ToneFone.

Simply put, the ToneFone is a dumbbell. It is made from 100 percent British steel that feels nice thanks to the rubber coating. You can choose between a 1-kilogram (2.2 pounds) or a 1.5-kilogram (3.3 pounds) variant of the case for $38 or $42, respectively. Unfortunately, both options are only available in white. If you’re looking for more color options, gold and space grey versions should be available in June.

Speaking of availability, if you thought that no one would buy the ToneFone, you might want to rethink that. According to an update on ToneFone’s product page, the initial batch sold out. You can still, however, pre-order it and expect it to arrive at your doorstep sometime in April, though if you live in the U.S., you’ll have to fork over $11.50 more to cover shipping costs.

The ToneFone is fitted for the iPhone 5 and 5S and doesn’t obscure access to the charging port or headphone jack, though you would be unwise to use it with any iPhone stand.

I tried the Apple Vision Pro. Here’s why it won’t replace my iPhone

The Apple Vision Pro is one of Apple’s most fascinating new product launches. It’s the first new product line from Apple since the Apple Watch, but the hype around it has been more like when Apple first introduced the original iPhone. Of course, Apple was not the first to the market with a VR/AR headset, but it is definitely what would be considered the most “mainstream” option out there, considering the brand name.

When Apple announced the Apple Vision Pro on June 5, 2023, during its WWDC 2023 keynote, I was excited. After years of rumors, it was finally happening. Preorders started on January 19, 2024, and the  Apple Vision Pro launched on February 2, 2024, in the U.S. The problem? It costs at least $3,500, making it a hard sell for many as a first-generation Apple product.
