Protect your iPhone 13 with an Otterbox case for 25% off from Verizon

Credit: Verizon Let’s be honest; we’ve all dropped our phones at some point or another — holding our breath as it bounces off a hard surface. Sometimes we get lucky, suffering only a few scratches. But there’s nothing worse than having huge cracks down the glass of your screen. When it comes to protecting your phone from drops, bumps, and fumbles, Otterbox cases have one of the best reputations. With the iPhone 13 Otterbox cases on sale for 25% off, you can save yourself peace of mind by knowing your new iPhone 13 is safe from any accident. See Also: The best Otterbox cases During its September event, Apple tried to highlight the iPhone 13’s durability by dropping and picking it up on stage. However, that theatrical demonstration isn’t comparable to the barrage of wear and tear we subject our phones to every day. Although the glass that protects the iPhone 13’s screen is Ceramic Shield — a similar material to Gorilla Glass — it is not invulnerable. Otterbox cases often make our best phone case brand list because of their long-term protection. The somewhat bulky cases are built for durability and are available in a range of colors.

Hands-on video of Pixel 6 Pro prototype leaves nothing to imagination

Credit: Twitter A Google Pixel 6 Pro hands-on video just hit Twitter. The brief video shows a prototype model that looks nearly identical to what we expect the retail models to look like. Assuming there are no drastic differences between this and the final product, this is our best look yet at the Pixel 6 Pro. Although Google has already shown us its upcoming slate of flagships, we haven’t seen them “in the flesh,” so to speak. Aside from the glassed-in immovable models on display in New York City, all we’ve seen are renders. That changes today…sort of. On Twitter, M.

However, it looks to be a late-stage prototype and could very well be a dead ringer for the models we’ll see in stores later this year. See also: Everything we know so far about the Google Pixel 6 series Check out the video embedded in the tweet below. I think this may be the first hands on video leak of a Google Pixel 6 Pro. FYI: The logo would indicate that this is likely an early production test unit, so that means there may be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel —...
