Back in May, Logitech announced its new Case+ product for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, which contained a metal case and multiple magnetic attachments for different uses. Today, the company unveiled two new products inspired by the line: the new Protection+ case for iPhone 5s/5 and the +Trip accessory for mounting an iPhone to a car's air vents for easy viewing.

Logitech's Protection+ case

The Protection+ case for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 features a slim design with a protective outer shell and internal impact-resistant materials. The case's corners each hold impact resistant polymers to minimize forces of impact, while the accessory's insides feature a thermoplastic rubber (TPR) layer to absorb energy from drops. Logitech's Protection+ case also comes with a raised bezel edge to protect the iPhone's touch screen and is tested for drops from up to 1.8 meters (about 6 feet) in height.

Logitech's +Trip car mount

Logitech's +Trip car mount is also being sold alongside the original +Drive accessory that attaches to a car's dashboard or windshield and came with the original Case+ system. The Protection+ case as well as the +Trip and +Drive mounts also all contain magnetic mounts to support the other Case+ attachments.

The Protection+ case will launch next month for $34.99, and will come in colors of Winter White, Gunmetal Black, Scarlett Plum, and Pacific Blue. The +Trip and +Drive accessories will also be released next month and sell for $29.99 and $49.99, respectively. Interested customers can pre-order all three now on Logitech's official website.

Every year 3 months before the next iPhone Logitech does this. Someone in there r&d department needs sacked

Just in time not to fit my new iPhone 6.

There's nothing wrong with my iPhone 5, so I'm keeping it. I may get a new iPhone 6 next year or the year after.
You don't need to upgrade your (whatever device) every year - You'll save yourself some money, and contribute towards reducing environmental impact.

But even if you were going to dump your 5/5s on eBay then I'm sure this case would be perfect for the next owner, and that's a huge market.

So logitech may have extended the lifespan of a device for current iPhone owners, saving them money. Why would someone need to get sacked for that?! - it's an intelligent move.

What's questionable is whether there's any real intelligence in sucking up new technology whenever you're told to by whoever's trying to sell it to you just because it's new!

That's pretty stupid, right?

Magnetic attachment

Am I confused but won't the magnet wipe the magnetic strip on my credit cards? I have already had problems with having my iPhone magnetic field alone wipe a hotel room keycard, so I would think that an additional magnet presumably cause more problems.
