New gear for your old gear

It's official: Apple Pencil cases are a thing. We've got those, plus new earbuds and other fine accessories for your iOS devices.

The Stash Connoisseur iPhone Wallet ($130 MSRP) is hand-crafted in Italy and offers a nice variety of options to make this case your own. It comes in three different shades of leather—Molé, Nutmeg, and Amaranth—and you can even have a three-letter monogram added to the case for an extra $50.

  • Audeze iSINE 10 In-Ear Planar Magnetic Headphones with...


The iSine 10 in-ear headphone ($399 MSRP; same price on Amazon) delivers 24-bit digital audio from your iOS device, which should carry Audeze’s app to customize the EQ for your listening pleasure. The makers say the iSine 10 delivers “the most accurate in-ear headphones experience ever.” Audiophiles, take notice.



New iOS-controlled products that work with Apple HomeKit: Eve Motion ($49.95 MSRP; same price on Amazon) is a wireless motion detector (pictured) that sends alerts to your phone whenever someone enters or approaches your home, while Light Switch ($49.95 MSRP; $44 on Amazon) is, well, a light switch. But it’s a light switch from the future!



Impulse Duo Wireless earbuds ($45 MSRP) are made for the athlete, with “sweat-resistant” design and up to 12 hours of playback time before a new charge is needed. The wireless controls clip to your clothes when in use, and to the earbuds when it’s time to put them away.



The Coolpix W300 ($389.95 MSRP; $386.95 on Amazon) captures 4K Ultra HD video, 16MP photos, time-lapse movies, and more; you can use Nikon’s SnapBridge app to back up all your images and sounds to your iOS device. Plus, it’s stylish, available in orange, black, and yellow.



Some mounts are good for your car’s dash. Others are meant for the air vents. Here’s the amazing thing about the MagicMount Dash/Vent ($25 MSRP; same price on Amazon): You can use it to mount your iPhone on either a dash OR a vent. Really. Scosche says it’s great for “multi-vehicle applications,” which we think means you can transfer it between different cars and it’ll always be usable.

  • StilGut Pencil Holder, Genuine Leather Sleeve for...


The Genuine Leather Sleeve for Apple Pencil ($20 MSRP; $15 on Amazon) is a “universal pocket made of genuine leather” and featuring a microfiber interior, designed especially for the Apple Pencil, and available in a “broad spectrum” of colors.



The Bamboo Sketch ($79.95 MSRP) is the latest in the line of styluses from Wacom. It charges via USB, has two “shortcut” buttons to let you customize your drawing, and boasts 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity (and as you can see from the picture, nearly as many parts) to let you create drawing and sketches with utmost precision.



The iPhone 7/7 plus Battery Case ($95 to $99 MSRP; on sale for $55 and $59) “doubles as a backup battery and a case to protect your device from scratches and damage.” It also includes a micro-SD slot so you can add 256GB of storage to your phone. It’s available in black and white.



Create Keyboard Case for 12.9-inch iPad Pro ($149.95 MSRP; $120 on Amazon) works with the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector: It “automatically powers on and connects with iPad Pro when placed in the typing position—no Bluetooth pairing needed.” The case also draws power from the tablet, so you don’t have to worry about recharging it. Available in black, blue or red.



This company now has a new program that lets you create customized iPad Pro and MacBook Pro cases. You can choose from 15 model options, 12 exterior leather colors—including three kinds of finishes—nine thread colors and three interior color options. And yes, you can have it monogrammed.
