The best Apple accessories launched at the CES show

Satechi 165W USB-C 4

Satechi’s new 165W charger looks like a mini-Mac.

We do not usually go for a charger, but Satechi 165W usb-c charger with four inputs is definitely something we like. Its four USB-C ports can power four devices simultaneously (two with a maximum of 100W and two with a maximum of 60W), with enough power to charge your Macbook Pro, quickly charge your Iphone 13, Ipad and keep your Airpods topped. But what makes the Satechi charger unique is the tiny little stand that makes it resemble a small Mac Pro.

Targus Cypress Hero Backpack with Find

The Targus Cypress Hero Backpack plugs into Apple’s Find Network.

If you want to protect your Iphone or Mac from being lost or stolen, you can turn on Find or put an Airtag in the bag you carry it in. But if you want to be able to track your entire Apple entourage, then this is it Targus Cypress Hero Backpack with Apple’s Find feature that applies. The bag is available for spring / summer and will cost around SEK 2,000. The back is made of 26 recycled plastic bottles and has a built-in rechargeable ultra-wideband tracker. If you forget the bag, you will be able to track it down before switching on your panic mode.

OWC Atlas S Pro SD UHS-II V90

OWC Atlas S Pro
The OWC Atlas S Pro SD UHS-II V90 promises actual write speeds up to 276MB / s and 290MB / s when read.

The new 14- and 16-inch Macbook Pro got back the memory card slot. All old memory cards work, but if you want the highest speeds, you need to get an sd uhs-ii v90 card. Then it may be time to check out OWC’s new Atlas S Pro card. Cards costs from $ 49 for one with 32 gigabytes of storage memory.

Scosche Magsafe speakers

With products limited to cases and batteries, Magsafe has not really lived up to the promise it had when Apple launched it more than a year ago. However, CES is an indication that this is about to change. The manufacturer of smartphone accessories, Scosche, has revealed a pair of speakers that take advantage of Apple’s Magsafe mechanism for Iphone 12 and 13.

Boom Can MS is an ipx7-rated portable speaker that attaches to the back of the Iphone that reaches five hours of playback on a 1.5-hour charge. Boom Bottle MS is a cylindrical speaker with a Magsafe pad that attaches to the Iphone. It has two passive subwoofers and a 10W speaker as well as an equalizer and a built-in bottle opener (!). Like the Boom Can MS, it is ipx7-rated. Both devices only use Magsafe to stay connected, rather than add some extra features, but it’s still nice to see a company embracing the platform.

Eve Homekit camera

Smart home products are always great at CES, but Apple is usually left out of all the fun. But not this year. Among the many Homekit launches were a couple of products from Eve Systems designed to integrate with Iphone and Icloud +.

Eve Outdoor Cam and Motion Blinds can be accessed with an Iphone or Ipad locally or remotely when using a Homepod or Apple TV as a home hub. The camera is a combination of a 1080p outdoor camera and an LED headlight. The camera records video at 24 frames per second and stores the encrypted file in the user’s Icloud account.
