Logitech Crayon in Gray, Ember Mug 2, and More Added to Apple's Online Store

Apple has added a new selection of accessories to its online store this week.

For starters, the Logitech Crayon is now available in a new gray finish, complementing the existing silver option with red accents.


Priced at $69.95, the Logitech Crayon is a lower-cost alternative to the Apple Pencil. The drawing tool features a slim aluminum body and an Apple Pencil-like tip, with the same latency, tilt, and palm rejection that you get with the Apple Pencil. Unlike the Pencil, however, it lacks pressure sensitivity.

The Logitech Crayon is compatible with the sixth- and seventh-generation iPad, as well as the latest iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad mini models.

Also new to Apple's online store is a new set of Ember Mugs, appropriately called the Ember Mug 2 and Ember Travel Mug 2. Ember's second generation of coffee mugs include new battery technology, allowing users to enjoy their hot beverage for up to 3 hours with Ember Travel Mug 2, 1.5 hours with the 10 oz Ember Mug 2, or 80 minutes with the 14 oz Ember Mug 2. Overall, this is a 50 percent increase in battery life with the new mugs.


The Ember Travel Mug 2 has a new hidden-until-lit touch display that replaces the rotating dial on the base of the first generation mug. This allows users to adjust the temperature of their drink directly on the mug, as well as look at the mug's battery life. Across all mugs, the charging coaster has been redesigned with a "more refined look," according to Ember.

The companion Ember app for iPhone or Apple Watch allows you to set your precise drinking temperature for hot beverages, track caffeine consumption, save presets for your favorite drinks, customize the LED color, and more.

The new Ember Mug 2 is $99.95 for the 10-ounce size, up from $79.95, while the 14-ounce mug remains $129.95. The Ember Travel Mug 2 is $179.95. The new mugs can be purchased on Apple.com and on Ember's own website.

Next up is the Lumos Matrix smart bike helmet with an urban design and integrated front and rear LED lights to alert drivers to your presence when cycling in the dark. The helmet also has turn signals and automatic warning lights on the back to alert people behind you that you are slowing down.


The Lumos Matrix helmet is $249.95 in white or black. The helmet can be controlled with the included remote or the Lumos app for iPhone or Apple Watch.

As we reported earlier, the Xbox Wireless Controller is also now listed on Apple.com, although it is currently unavailable to purchase. As of iOS 13 and tvOS 13, the Xbox Wireless Controller and PlayStation DualShock 4 can be paired with an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and used to play games on those devices.

Other accessories added to Apple.com this week include the MeeBot 2.0 programmable robot for kids, an iPhone-connected kettlebell with six weight options, the Native Union Drop XL wireless charging pad, an iPhone-mounted LED light for improved photos and videos, and more.

Maintain temp for 80 minutes? If its a heating device that I assume is plugged in, why can't it maintain temp indefinitely?

"Maintain your perfect drinking temperature in the 14-ounce mug for 80 minutes on a single charge—or all day on the included charging coaster"

I own an original Ember mug. As someone who works from home and has a toddler, best purchase ever. There would be days where my coffee was ice cold before I could take a sip before. Now I keep it at 135 degrees F all the time. Love my Ember.

I'm not the market for the Ember – I only raaaaarely have a hot chocolate – but it is clearly one of those products many just don't understand until they use it. Those who have them almost unanimously love them.

Please note the intentional use of language which allows for a small percentage of users to disagree. Don't @ me, bro. (:
