CES 2019: Speck Launches New ‘Case-E’ iPad Case Aimed at Kids

Speck today announced the launch of the Case-E, a new tablet case that's aimed to protect iPads that are being used by children. The Case-E is a followup to the Speck iGuy, one of Speck's most popular iPad cases.


The Case-E, like the iGuy comes in bright colors and uses soft but sturdy materials that are easy to grip. Case-E features 6-foot drop protection along with detachable EVA foam "arms" that kids can hold onto.

The arms serve as a stand for use in landscape or portrait mode, and there's a tie for securing it to a vehicle's headrest when in the car.


Speck plans to begin offering the Case-E iPad case for $39.95 starting during the first quarter of 2019. It will be available from the Speck website, and it is compatible with the last five generations of 9.7-inch iPads.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win a New iPad and Balance Folio Clear Case From Speck

For this week's Friday giveaway, we've teamed up with Speck for something special. We're giving away a brand new 32GB sixth-generation iPad paired with one of Speck's iPad cases, the Balance Folio Clear.

Priced at $44.95, Speck's Balance Folio Clear is made from a clear, durable polycarbonate that keeps your iPad protected but visible, leaving the design and look of the iPad unobscured. The case has been drop tested and will keep the iPad safe from scratches, bumps, and short falls.


The Balance Folio Clear includes a built-in adjustable stand that can be positioned in several angles for typing, watching videos, and more, and when closed, there's a secure clasp that keeps everything shut tight for travel. Sleep/wake magnets are included so your iPad turns on or off when the cover is opened or closed.


For a folio-style case, the Balance Clear adds little bulk to the iPad with the clear rear shell and thin protective front cover in black or blue.

Speck is pairing the Balance Folio Clear with a 9.7-inch 32GB WiFi only sixth-generation iPad, which was released back in March and is the newest iPad Apple has available for purchase. It offers an upgraded processor and Apple Pencil support.

CES 2018: Speck Announces New Presidio Mount iPhone Case Designed to Work With Scosche Mounts

Speck today announced that it has teamed up with Scosche to create a new Presidio Mount iPhone case that is designed to work with Scosche's lineup of MagicMount magnetic mounts.

Scosche's magnetic mounts typically require iPhone users to attach metal mounting plates to their iPhones or iPhone cases using adhesive, but the Presidio Mount includes two steel plates that are embedded between the layers of the case.


Speck says the metal plates are invisible because they're mounted inside the case, and they've been positioned so they won't interfere with wireless charging.

Like Speck's other Presidio cases, the Presidio Mount includes two-layer protection that can keep an iPhone from getting damaged from drops up to 10 feet high. The inner layer is made from an impact absorbing rubber Speck calls Impactium, while the outer layer is made from a polycarbonate designed to disperse shock.


The Presidio Mount is compatible with all cradle-free Scosche MagicMounts and it will be available for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and later, including the iPhone X. Speck plans to make the Presidio Mount available for purchasein February of 2018 and it will be priced starting at $44.95.

MacRumors Giveaway: Win an iPhone 8 With Presidio Ultra Case From Speck

We’ve teamed up with Speck for a very special giveaway that includes one of Apple’s brand new 256GB iPhone 8 models in Silver and a Presidio Ultra Case designed by Speck to go along with it.



Speck is offering a wide range of cases for the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at prices starting at $39.95, but the Presidio Ultra is Speck’s most protective iPhone case.



The Presidio Ultra has four layers of protection, including a removable Impactium Ultra bumper that offers up extra drop protection on demand. On its own, the Presidio case offers drop protection up to 10 feet, but that extends to 15 feet with the bumper.



Speck’s Presidio Ultra case also offers coverage of all ports and it’s resistant to both dirt and dust. It comes in a range of fashionable colors, including black, pink/purple, gray/red, and gray/teal.



The Presidio Ultra case is available for the iPhone 8 for $49.95 and the iPhone 8 Plus for $54.95. It can be purchased soon from the Speck website.

Apple’s iPhone 8, though it looks similar to the iPhone 7, is a major upgrade with several new features. Along with a glass body that has a new pearlescent silver finish and support for Qi wireless charging, the iPhone 8 offers up a much faster A11 chip, camera improvements, and better support for augmented reality apps through the introduction of a new accelerometer and gyroscope.

We have one iPhone 8 and Presidio Ultra Case in Gray/Teal to give away to a lucky MacRumors reader. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.
