    Our staff have used a variety of different accessories for our Apple devices this year – for both iOS devices and Macs. Not all of our staff use accessories, but for those that do, we're going to share what we like using the most. Feel free to use our advice for holiday shopping ideas!

    Akshay Masand


    Akshay Masand only uses one accessory for his iPhone 4S.

    When it comes to keeping his iPhone 4S alive all day long, Akshay puts his trust in the Mophie Juice Pack Plus. It's an iPhone case with a built-in battery pack that can be used to add even more hours to your stock iPhone battery. It serves double-duty, not only keeping the device alive longer, but also being protective and stock resistant at the same time.



    Since Akshay is always out and about, he feels that without the Mophie Juice Pack Plus, his iPhone would very likely be dead at times of need. Because of this, he recommends the spare battery case to anyone in a similar situation that needs extra battery power and can't always sit around waiting for their iPhones to charge.

    Mophie's Juice Pack Plus retails for $99.95.

    Anthony Bouchard


    Anthony Bouchard uses accessories for his iOS devices and his Mac.

    For his iPhone 5, Anthony uses the Frequency snap-on case from Incipio because it offers decent drop protection and scratch protection, all while continuing to look good and have a slim form-factor. The back of the case has a neat design that simulates the volume bars ...

    In case you've missed out on the new jailbreak tweaks Cydia has seen, this recap will highlight the tweaks we've shown you this week. These are in no specific order.

    1. Binary Clock – 99¢

    Binary Clock is a new jailbreak tweak by iOS developer FoolishSleuth that allows you to replace iOS’ digital lock screen clock with a binary clock. The tweak gives you multiple theming options, as well as the ability to hide and show the date on the lock screen. Binary clocks show the time in binary, so not everyone ...

    One of the most horrific experiences in iOS ever has to be going through your contacts and removing ones that you don’t need anymore. iOS requires that you go into the individual contact cards and scroll all the way down to find a delete button. It’s a very cumbersome, one-at-a-time process, and it’s just way too annoying.

    A new jailbreak tweak dubbed Delete Contact by iOS development firm Expin Systems makes deleting contact cards the way it should be – Easy and iOS-like!

    First of all, you’ll now be able to ...

    A new jailbreak tweak in Cydia dubbed Binary Clock by iOS developer FoolishSleuth is now available that allows you to replace the digital clock on the lock screen with a binary clock. Above is a screenshot comparison of the two types of clocks.

    One thing is for sure. Unless you have a keen eye for reading binary clocks, being able to tell the time might take some… well… time. There is a nice guide on reading binary clocks at this link. Regardless, the true geeks out there will want to grab this tweak and install ...

    Notification is a nice place to get some quick information about the Weather, Stocks, and your notifications (even Tweet and post to Facebook if you’re on iOS 6), however Apple could have made the effect of opening and closing Notification Center just a little bit more visually appealing to the user’s eyes.

    Instead of merely dragging a sheet over your home screen, a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed Fade by iOS developer SuperDev will ...

    There was a whole lot of buzz from Apple users saying that they would only upgrade to Apple’s iOS 6 mobile operating system when Google released their Google Maps application in the App Store, because these users didn’t want to deal with Apple’s “inaccurate” Maps application in iOS 6.

    Recent statistics from Chitika seem to show that these claims were mostly empty, as following the Google Maps application ...

    As Apple recently released the iPhone 5 in China, it was predicted that things should be going well for the Cupertino California company on Wall Street but that isn’t how things ended up. According to initial reports, the debut of the iPhone 5 has been somewhat slow due to a snowstorm hitting Beijing and a pre-order requirement to prevent rioting. Adding to the issues that Apple ...

    A U.S. International Trade Commission judge recently ruled in favor of defendants Apple, Intel and HP in a case pertaining to processor patent technology previously asserted by a small technology firm by the name of X2Y Attenuators LLC. In his ruling, ITC Administrative Law Judge David Shaw not only cleared the three companies of any wrongdoing, but determined the patents asserted by X2Y to be invalid.

Originally expected to sell 6 million iPad minis over the holidays, Apple has doubled its orders with displayed panel markers to more than 12 million according to analyst David Hsieh.
