The coolest gadgets for your iPhone and Mac


The annual Consumer Electronics Show isn’t all that important for Apple fans, with a heavy focus on PCs and Android phones, but that doesn’t mean Apple and the iPhone aren’t still represented. Here are five Apple-related announcements that you might have missed.

Satechi 165W USB-C 4-Port PD Charger

We don’t usually get excited over chargers, but the Satechi 165W USB-C 4-Port Power Delivery Charger is definitely something to write home about. Its four USB-C ports can power four devices simultaneously (two max 100W and two max 60W), with enough juice to fill up your MacBook Pro, fast-charge your iPhone 13 and iPad, and keep AirPods topped off. But what makes this Satechi charger so unique is the tiny little stand it comes with that makes it look like a mini Mac tower on your desk.

Targus Cypress Hero Backpack with Find My

If you want to protect your Mac against loss or theft, you can turn on Find My or pop an AirTag into the bag you’re carrying it in. But if you want to track your entire traveling setup if it’s swiped or misplaced, Targus’s Cypress Hero Backpack with Apple Find My will fit the bill. Available in spring/summer for $150, the backpack is made from sustainable materials constructed from 26 recycled plastic water bottles and includes a rechargeable ultra wideband tracker built right into it. So if you leave your bag behind you’ll be able to track it down before full-blown panic sets in.
