Best iPhone XR cases: Top picks in every style

1 day 19 hours ago

Apple has announced a fleet of new iPhones. The most affordable of the bunch is the iPhone XR, starting at $749. The 6.1-inch phone has many of the premium features found in the more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max, and comes in six different colors. (See why we think the iPhone XR is a worthy upgrade to the iPhone X.)

It might be the more affordable option, but it’s still a significant expense, so you’re going to want a case to protect it. Fortunately, there are some very nice case options to choose from. We rounded up our top picks to help you decide. We’ll add more to the list as new cases become available, so watch this space.

Save up to $140 on the new MacBook Air at Amazon

1 day 19 hours ago

Amazon is selling the latest 128GB MacBook Air for just $1,059, which amounts to $140 (or 12 percent off) the regular retail price of $1,199. You can only get it at this price in silver, but fortunately the space gray model is also on sale for an agreeable $1,069.

Not bad. If Amazon had chopped the price down just $60 or $70, that’d be how much it’d cost you to buy the previous-generation MacBook Air at retail price.

I personally like the new model. I prefer the slightly inclined design over the flat expanses of the MacBook Pros, and I like the extra room and extra USB-C port it provides over the smaller 12-inch MacBook. I even like the keyboard, which has the same membrane-padded butterfly design of the 15-inch 2018 MacBook Pro. That makes it quieter than the 12-inch MacBook, and for me, the tiny bit of resistance makes it more pleasurable to write on.
