Tracking steps, measuring heart rate, counting calories, monitoring sleep: wearables have become part of everyday life for a surprisingly large portion of the UK. According to researcher YouGov, nearly one in five of us own a wearable, and one in 10 actively use them.

This attaches - quite firmly - to the case using strategically placed magnets and can be used to keep the iPhone's battery topped … [Read more...] about This iPhone XS case transforms into a wireless charging USB powerbank
