With the rumors that Apple will be removing the headphone jack with the introduction of the iPhone 7, many are hoping that wireless Bluetooth headphones and earbuds will be available in a big way come this fall. I ran into Kanoa at CES, makers of an amazing pair of truly wireless Bluetooth earbuds.
With Kanoa, there's no wire connecting the earbuds to your device or to each other. In addition, no wires are needed for charging either, as the earbuds are charges in a wireless case. Kanoa earbuds also allow you to hear the ambient noise around you if you choose - so, when you are out bike-riding and listening to music, you can also hear important cues around you.

If you ever get tired of Apple's flimsy iPhone charging cables fraying, breaking, or getting chewed up by pets, you'll wanna be sure to give the Titan Lightning Cable a look. Made from two laters of flexible, high-strength steel, I've found the Titan cable to be durable enough to withstand my three dogs. Previously, any official cables from Apple would be destroyed within a week, while the Titan model from Fuse Chicken has held up for months.
Aside from the cabling itself, the Lightning and USB connectors on the Titan line are permanently sealed with a one-piece housing that's been fused directly over the electronics and metal cabling. Paired with the steel body, this is how the Titan is made to be a cable that lasts.
Apple hopes to fix the issue of distracted driving with CarPlay, Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use the features of your smartphone while you're in the car, giving you access to things like Apple Music, phone calls, text messages and iMessages, podcasts, Maps, audiobooks, and more. Once you plug your iPhone into a CarPlay equipped vehicle, you see the interface appear right on the dashboard. In this case, I am using the 2016 CHevy Colorado Z71 pickup truck, which ships with Apple CarPlay.
CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. It also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, or touchscreen. And the apps you want to use in the car have been reimagined, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.
You can get the Apple iPad mini 4 now!
