The Best iPhone 12 Case For Gamers

Razer’s Arctech Pro iPhone Case

Apple’s iPhone 12 is quite a powerful phone, which means you?ll be able to play Fortnite Pokemon Go & Genshin Impact with no processor lag to drag down your gaming session. Yet even the world’s most advanced smartphone is not immune to overheating when used heavily.
This is where the Arctech Pro iPhone 12 case is king. This accessory boasts three layers of cooling to help stop CPU shut down, as well as the normal bump protection that you would expect to see in any good cover. Razer’s Arctech Pro case is wireless charging compatible. It works in conjunction with Qi-certified phone chargers.

Three Metre Impact Protection

Drop protection wise Razer’s Arctech Pro case gives Certified 10ft/3m protection from drops. This case feels tough, rugged and thick enough. I?d trust it would protect a smartphone should you accidentally happen to drop it from 3m heights and lower.

Anker Beats Apple With Their Magsafe Battery For Your iPhone 12 Mini

The iPhone 12 MagSafe technologies don’t just can make charging less complicated, it also allows functional equipment that can easily be connected magnetically onto the iPhones with out utilizing a cover. The most anticipated of these accessories is a carry around powerbank, and it appears like Anker?s going to get one on the market right before Apple.
A couple of days back, Bloomberg reported unnamed sources of information in a news piece that made claims Apple were engaged on an update to their Battery Covers that eliminates the case completely. In its place, it securely attaches straight to the back side of the iPhone 12 series device utilizing MagSafe magnets, even though delivering a charge applying wireless induction technologies.

PowerCore Magnetic Wireless Power Bank

And why it?s taken a lengthy period to realize an accessory that is a clear thing to release together with the brand new Apple iPhone 12 handset range when the device was initially launched last year is strange, however Apple has a history with remaining overly careful with charging components, see duck head recalls, battery replacements in phones and Macbooks, and not far back completely cancelling the multi device AirPower charging mat it experienced previously announced at one of their media conference.

PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank

Whatever any motives are for Apple not having a MagSafe battery already available could be moot, as beginning on March 3 2021, Anker will commence shipping their version. Their PowerCore Wireless Powerbank features a 5,000 mAh battery pack, this is bigger compared to OEM units built into Apple’s iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and even the iPhone 12 Pro Max, wireless charging ability is not as good as what charging using a wire is. So, Anker states their magnetic power bank can just charge the iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 and the bigger 12 Pro Max to 95%, 97%, and 75% of the battery capacities. It may, however, fully recharge a dead iPhone 12 mini, with some power to use.
The Anker PowerCore Power Bank can only be recharged employing a USB-C cable. It doesn’t seem like you can place it on a wireless charging stand to repower it, and as it’s not a officially certified MagSafe accessory it is just as MagSafe compatible that can possibly charge at rates of up to 15W, the magnetic powerbank is limited to 7.5 watts. It is a small drawback, however it’s a problem still.

And when Apple does release a unique MagSafe battery pack, it will likely make use of the fastest MagSafe charging rates, but as with all Apple’s accessories, the powerbank we assume will be costly. In spite of the reduced charging rate approximately comparable to the charging rate of the 5W power adapters that the company used to supply with its phones, Anler’s PowerCore Wireless PowerBank will be ready to sell when it launches soon. This is the most compelling excuse not to continue to wait for Apple.

MagSafe Is Back

One similarity of Apple’s iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro is the phone’s battery life or lack thereof. These iPhones are passable, but this is one step back from last year’s devices. I have generally been getting around just over four hours of usage per charge on a mix of 5G, 4G, as well as WiFi. And for me, this is just a full day of usage, with a small buffer amount. In comparison, I could have about a day and a half from Apple’s iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR. Having a day’s usage is fine, but it would have nice to have a larger safety net for those days where there is a lot usage.

MagSafe iPhone Charger

Speaking of charging, Apple, the company has gone with an interesting policy of ceasing bundling earbuds & power bricks with their new iPhones because of environmental reasons. All you will see included in their box – other than the iPhone, is a USB Type C to Lightning cord. Personally, I don’t think it is a big deal. Apple’s Earpods are not the best, and a lot people have a power brick. And the only tricky bit is the choice of cord. You’ll need to have a charging adaptor that has a USB C port to use the cable but if you are coming from an iPhone 11 Pro, your iPhone power brick will use a full-sized USB port.
One may utilise an old cable and charger, however you’ll not get faster charging speeds that your iPhone 12 can provide. Should you desire to purchase a USB C brick, you’re spending $40 in order to buy one.

Magnetic Charging

In addition, Apple additionally now has their cute new wireless charging ecosystem: . MagSafe consists of a circular shaped wireless charger that uses magnets to snap to the back of an iPhone 12. This provides perfect alignment to achieve the fastest wireless charging, and it also means that you can still use your iPhone as it’s juicing and you just can’t with a non MagSafe wireless charger. You will able to have a faster charge with a wired charger, however MagSafe can take your iPhone 12 from zero charge up to about 40% over around thirty minutes.
Of course, purchasing MagSafe is going to cost you more. You’ll need to spend $65 just for the charger itself, as well as another $29 if you need to get a USB-C power brick. And if you want to have the magnets that connect to your case, you’ll need to buy a MagSafe compatible cover. Your MagSafe charger can provide charge through most cases, but it just won’t stick to it. MagSafe cases start at $80.
And while there are parts of Apple’s MagSafe that are for magSafe devices only however, it still functions as a QI wireless charger that’s compatible with any device that uses it. The charge time is a bit slower as quick. Presently, MagSafe is a fun but handy option, but I am really curious to see where the ecosystem will lead.
As many of people don’t need a MagSafe charger for the office, there is much potential for MagSafe accessories like car cradles where it will prove beneficial.

The Company Samsung Scales back Phone Output Through The Month Of April Because Market Demand Drops

According to a recent report in tech publication The Elec states that Samsung will pull back output from an average 25 million units per month to only 10 million phones through the month of April. This outlet also quotes an anonymous source to suggest that the current Covid-19 Iockdowns and the closure of factories in India as well as in Brazil were the main causes for the reduction.
They report numbers would be normalized in the month of May as this is when both the India and Brazil plants will recommence production. However, given that the lockdown has already been extended in India till May 3 as well as knowing that Covid-19 cases unfortunately are rising in these two countries, the anticipated recovery may take longer than the company hopes.
Thankfully, there is also a silver lining for Samsung. Predicted sales of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra are beating all market predictions with sales believed to reach 6 million devices throughout this year when compared to the expected sales of 3.5 to 5.25 million devices.

Dirty iPhone? Here’s one flu and coronavirus safeguard: Clean your device now

The smartphone in our pockets has become our dirty secret.

The next time you grab a friend’s smartphone to stare at a picture or to watch the video on YouTube they simply had to share, you might want to think again.  

Or, even better, take a look at your own mobile device and wonder: when did I last clean it? 

On January 17, ZDNet took to Twitter to ask a simple question: How often do you disinfect your phone? The results surprised us and certainly revealed a disturbing truth: the majority of us are filthy creatures.   

In total, 18.5% of you said your smartphone was subject to a weekly clean, whereas 14% said their mobile device was subject to a monthly spruce-up.  

A whopping 60% of you admitted you never cleaned your mobile device. 7.4% inferred you would clean it after you’ve been sick.  

Our readers aren’t alone, either, in grim habits: a 2019 report (.PDF) of 1,200 US residents and their hygiene practices found that 88% of adults use their phones in the bathroom.  

If you’re a parent, you are even more likely to do so with the figure climbing to 93%; perhaps in a bid to snatch a few minutes of peace to check social media feeds and emails. 

 (All in all, there are probably only two types of smartphone users: those who admit to using their device in the bathroom, and those who lie about it.) 

Your smartphone goes everywhere with you. The lounge, the bathroom, the kitchen, the bedroom, the pub.  

You touch the screen after you’ve washed up with the germ-infested kitchen sponge that really should have been thrown away days ago. You refill the dog bowl, perhaps receive an affectionate lick in gratitude and then accept a call, thereby pressing the screen to your face. 

You unlock your phone in the pub garden to check a notification after you’ve used the restroom. (You’ve washed your hands but how many reprobates have you seen while you’re in there bypass the sink entirely to grab the door handle on their way out?)  

It’s no wonder that smartphones are now comparable to toilet seats when it comes to the germs and viruses that claim them as home.  

Initial suggests that the average smartphone has close to 10 times more bacteria per square inch than a toilet seat. In 2011, academics from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that roughly one in six devices harbor E. Coli, bacteria associated with fecal matter.  

Another interesting piece of research, conducted by Insurance2Go, swabbed devices to show how much bacteria and yeast shows up after being incubated at 30C for 48 hours. 

Other recent studies confirm high colony-forming units (CFU) per square inch levels on our mobile devices. 

If you’re like me and travel often with a smartphone glued to your hip, you really might want to take a wipe with you. Outstripping everything else on the list, a study into airport self-check-in kiosks showed they contain a massive 253,857 CFU per square inch, thanks to our grubby hands.  

We can’t get rid of our smartphones, despite the breeding grounds of germs they have become, and it’s important we don’t sterilize our lives to the point we hamper our own immune systems.  

But it might be about time we think about cleaning our devices a little more often, especially in the winter season when cold and flu bugs are rampant and when touch can be enough to transfer contagious illnesses to our nearest and dearest. The now global challenge posed by the coronavirus is an additional wake-up call 

How to do so properly, however, is something that confuses people who do not want to end up damaging these expensive items.  

I asked people I knew how they cleaned their own smartphones. Tights, a scrub on their jeans, scarves and a spit-and-polish (yes, I know) were popular options — but we can do better than that. Below are some tips and for an in-depth review, you can also check out sister site CNET’s guide to keeping your mobile devices squeaky clean.

How to clean your smartphone

  • Microfiber cloth: To reduce the risk of scratching your screen, use a damp microfiber cloth rather than paper towels. The cloth won’t kill bacteria but will shift it away from your mobile device.
  • Technology cleaners: There are specific cleaning products available for electronics and screens which will kill bugs and shouldn’t leave any streaks. 
  • Nooks and crannies: Use damp cotton swabs to clear up any awkward spots, such as headphone jacks or memory card slots. 
  • UV lights: For a serious clean, products including PhoneSoap will use UV to flash and kill microscopic bacteria. 
  • Antibacterial wipes: There’s no harm in using a wipe every so often, especially if you’ve recently suffered from illness, but this should be an occasional clean as they may contain harmful chemicals.

What to avoid

  • Window cleaning spray: You would be forgiven to think glass and window cleaners would be fine on a smartphone screen, but you would be wrong. Some displays have anti-oil and water protections, and using these chemicals can be too harsh, leading to gradual screen erosion.
  • Paper: Paper towels can be abrasive enough to leave scratches on fragile smartphone screens. 
  • Rubbing alcohol/sprays: Alcohol is a go-to for cleaning but you may run the risk of damaging your device if you do so. Diluted or not, most vendors recommend that you stay away from this cleaning method. 
  • General household cleaning products: A spray that promises to kill 99 percent of bacteria is appealing, but the chemicals contained in household products can be far too harsh. 
  • Vinegar: Even when diluted with water, you are running the risk of stripping protective coatings from device screens.

It won’t kill you to miss a day or two of cleaning, but come on, everyone, never?
