The Graduate Collection of iPad cases ($70 MSRP) “looks fresh out of the library” with a bindery cloth cover evocative of old university library stacks. Inside, you’ll find an interior pocket for extra documents, as well as a Baltic birch cradle to actually hold the tablet. It gives your new-school device an old-school feel.

Aukey’s Ora iPhone Camera Lens ($40 MSRP; $30 on Amazon) is a two-in-one lens for your iPhone. The macro lense magnifies objects up to 15 times to get detailed close-ups, while the wide-angle lense opens your field of view for great landscape photos. The detachable rubber clip makes it easy to take the lens on and off without scratching your phone.

The iTrip Clip ($20 MSRP; $18 on Amazon) converts any earbuds or headphones to wireless Bluetooth headphones; plug them into the clip, and you can play, control and talk on your iPhone without a wired-in connection. If you want the freedom of Bluetooth but still want to use your old earbuds, here’s the gadget that’ll help you do both.

The EdgeGlass for iPhone SE ($14.95 MSRP) offers extra screen protection for your iPhone SE: “ Made of high-grade tempered glass, it delivers unprecedented scratch resistance.” The product is “coming soon.” The same product for iPhone 7 is already available for $34.95 (or $24 on Amazon).

The Lolly Digital Microphone ($45 pledge through Indiegogo) is billed as “world’s first portable 3D recording device for your smartphone.” Say the makers: “This compact and portable microphone records HD audio to your iPhone using any iOS app and our immersive 3D playback makes listeners feel the sensation of being in the space in which audio was originally recorded.”

You have to watch this video to get a sense of what makes the Lightning Magnetic USB Cable ($22.98 on Amazon) so cool—the enhanced “smart magnet” not only makes sure your iOS device stays plugged into its power source, it’s powerful enough to actually seek out and make the connection when the plug and connector get close enough to each other. The cable is braided, meaning you’ll be able to put plenty of wear and tear on this accessory.

This company’s iPhone 7 Case ($18 MSRP; $11 on Amazon) tries to give you the best of both worlds: An “ultra-slim” design that shows off the iPhone’s slender good looks, combined with dual-layer protection against against shocks, drops, impacts and bumps.

The FoamTech case ($34.95 MSRP) cradles your new iPad in protective—but lightweight—foam that doubles as a stand, allowing for hands-free use but without adding too mucy weight to the tablet itself.
