PopSockets Announces New 'PopGrip Slide' Accessory in Exclusive Colors Coming to Apple's Website and Retail Stores [Updated]

by

Smartphone accessory maker PopSockets today announced a new version called the PopGrip Slide that will be available in exclusive colors on Apple's website and in select Apple stores around the world. This accessory is compatible with iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max.


The PopGrip Slide attaches to the iPhone and is specifically designed to work with Apple's Silicone Cases, coming in matching Black, White, Pink Sand, Midnight Blue, and Red color options.

PopSocket accessories allow for easier one-handed control of the ‌iPhone‌, and the company says that it lets users take better selfies and can even be used as a stand for watching videos. The PopGrip Slide is compatible with PopSockets swappable products so the top can be twisted off and a new design can be added.

PopGrip Slide costs $15 and will be available exclusively on Apple.com and in select Apple stores soon.

Update: Now available.

Utterly obnoxious. But hats off to the guy who invented them.

Makes the phone useable with one hand though... Like the loopy case too.

This looks interesting although the colors are kinda MEH.
I wonder how this would work with a wireless charger though?
Hmmm

Spoiler: They don't.


NOT compatible with iPhone 11 as it blocks the wireless charging port.

The... wireless charging... port?

I think ChromeAce meant to say "...it blocks the wireless charging..." spot. However it doesn't necessarily "block" the spot more then it precludes the iPhone 11/11 Max from making sufficient contact with a wireless charging pad.

I've heard that if a person were to position the PopSocket closer to the bottom of an iPhone, it allows the iPhone to get closer to the pad by leaning on it so that the phone will charge. With the new PopGrip Slide a person could conceivably "slide" it down or off the phone so that a person could wirelessly charge it. But as Brenzo just noted, it probably is a hit or miss proposition and a general pain in the butt to do so.

I am able to charge with a PopSocket (when collapsed) on a Qi charger pad without issue. I will say it takes a bit more effort to get it exactly placed, but it charges nonetheless. Also the Popsocket I use has an aluminum finish, if you have one of their premium metal finishes then that could interfere.

Should also note I have a very thin plastic case on, not thicker Apple silicone case, not sure if that makes a difference.
