Twelve South today announced updated versions of its BookBook, Journal, and SurfacePad case accessories, which were built to fit the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR.
BookBook combines an iPhone shell case with a wallet case that can hold five cards, and includes a pocket for cash. The case also folds into a display stand for hands-free usage, and if you ever want to remove the iPhone from the wallet, the separate shell case keeps protecting the smartphone.
BookBook comes in black and cognac, and costs $59.99 for the iPhone XS version, and $69.99 for the iPhone XS Max and XR versions.
Journal has many of the same features as BookBook, but with a [...]

The leather exterior is accompanied by a soft black microsuede interior that keeps [...]
Twelve South today launched the „PowerPic,“ a traditional wooden picture frame that includes a hidden, 10W wireless charger. You can place any 5″ x 7″ photo in the PowerPic, and then to charge an iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, or XR, you simply place the device on top of the photo.
Twelve South says that the idea behind the PowerPic was to create a Qi charger that would not add to the clutter of a bedside table or desk, so that when your iPhone (or any compatible Qi smartphone) isn’t charging, it just looks like any other framed picture in your home.
