iCarbons Review: The best iPhone skins on the market

Historically, I’ve avoided skins on my iPhone. In my experience, they’ve been poorly made, have peeled, bubbled or scuffed within days of application, and generally aren’t worth purchasing however cheap you can find them.

Twelve South SurfacePad for iPhone 6/6 Plus review

Few accessory companies have earned as much space in my office as Twelve South. Having a manufacturer focussed on – and dedicated purely to – making great products for Apple devices is refreshing. Too many big companies try and make every single type of case for every single device. Not Twelve South. Its products are unique, and you won’t find anything…
