Happy Friday, everyone. Welcome back to our weekly look at some of the latest and greatest iOS device accessories to hit the market. We’re highlighting a rugged iPad Air case, an iPhone armband, and more.
PureMove Sports Armband for the iPhone 5/5s/5c from PureGear
Now that spring is finally here for most of us in the United States, it’s a great time to take a walk or run. And the new PureMove Sports Armband is a perfect workout accessory. The case is designed to fit the iPhone 5/5s/5c securely on your arm while providing direct screen access. Along with being washable, the armband features Dry+Flex technology and offers 3M reflective material for enhanced visibility at night. An optional cord management clip can store an extra headphone cable.
Buyers can select from a black/green or gray/pink armband. There are two different sizes, a S/M or M/L. It retails for $49.99 and can be ordered from PureGear’s site now
LifeProof nuud for the iPad Air
LifeProof’s popular nuud case is finally available for the iPad Air. While the case protects the tablet from up to 6.6 feet of water and drops of up to 4 feet, the Air’s screen isn’t covered by any protector. The nuud completely seals the tablet from dirt, dust, snow, and ice. Users still have complete access to all buttons, ports, and the headphone jack.
The nuud is available in two different color options – black or white with gray accents. It costs $129.99
and is available directly from LifeProof or a number of other retailers.
The Traveler Case for the iPhone 5s/5 from Pad & Quill
Made with American full grain leather and hand assembled, Pad & Quill’s Traveler case can hold an iPhone 5s/5 securely with clean release 3M adhesive. The rugged rear sliding pocket can hold credit cards or other identification. There is an opening for the rear camera. Along with parachute grade stitching, an orange thread accent is the company’s tribute to the wonderful World Vision charity.
Available in black or tan, the Traveler can be preordered from Pad & Quill’s site now for $69.99
. It will begin to ship at the end of April.
Anycase 2.0 Tripod
The Anycase tripod adapter allows users to take stabilized photos and videos with any iPhone. The device fits any handset with or without a case. Made with strong aluminum, three 3M non-slip pads help protect the iPhone from scratches.
The tripod can be ordered now for $39.99
from Bitemyapple.co. It will start shipping next week.
