Logitech Wired Keyboard for iPad

Following Macally, Logitech is one of the first accessory makers to introduce a wired keyboard for iPad. The company calls its version... you guessed it: Wired Keyboard for iPad ($60). Available in Dock Connector and Lightning versions, the plastic keyboard uses a cord to connect to your iPad. Instead of requiring its own batteries, it draws power directly from your tablet. No stand is included with this one, however, so you'll have to provide your own.

Model: ALIN

Price: $25

Compatible: iPhone 5/5s

Tylt ALIN Perfect Alignment Screen Protection

We've seen plenty of novel screen protector application systems, but Tylt's new ALIN ($25) might be one of the smartest yet. Coming with three clear films, an anti-glare film, a cleaning cloth, and a squeegee, the key to the system is the plastic alignment tool. Your iPhone 5 or 5s snaps into it, providing a guide for the installation of the film. Just line the edge of the film up with the edge of the plastic, lay it down, and squeeze out any bubbles.

Model: Milan

Price: $60

Compatible: iPhone 5/5s

Marware Milan for iPhone 5/5s

Milan ($60) is Marware's wallet case for the iPhone 5 and 5s. It's somewhat special in that it uses both genuine leather and real wood in its outer case, and both materials are quite nice. Inside are a shell-style case for the handset, plus a credit card slot, plastic window for your ID, and a small pocket for cash, another credit card, or perhaps even a key. The iPhone can be placed on a viewing angle, although the case will have to be broken in before it maintains its position properly. A screen film and cleaning cloth are included.

Model: Overture

Price: $45

Compatible: iPhone 5/5s

Moshi Overture Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s

Billed as a "premium iPhone wallet case," Moshi's Overture for iPhone 5/5s ($45) combines a fabric or faux leather cover with a shell-style case, three card slots, and, most uniquely, an integrated cleaning cloth. As with many wallet cases, the iPhone simply snaps onto a frame attached to the inside of the rear cover. A neat screen cleaner helps to set Overture apart: the small square of microfiber adheres to a corresponding patch underneath the credit card slots when not in use.
