CES 2019 Wrap-Up: AirPlay 2 TVs, Battery Cases for Latest iPhones, Third-Party Lightning to USB-C Cables, and More

Today is the final day of CES 2019 in Las Vegas, where thousands of companies showed off their latest connected tech products. As usual, Apple did not have an official presence on the show floor, but there were several announcements and a wide variety of product unveilings that are tied to its ecosystem. MacRumors attended CES 2019 and has shared numerous articles and videos on our YouTube channel about the show throughout the week. We've wrapped up some of the notable announcements from the week below. AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs Without attending, Apple stole some of CES 2019's thunder by announcing this week that AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs are coming from leading manufacturers, including Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio. Meanwhile, up-and-coming Chinese smart TV brand TCL told MacRumors it is "currently committed to Roku." Smart TVs from LG, Sony, and Vizio, but not Samsung, will also support HomeKit. Samsung smart TVs are, however, getting an exclusive iTunes TV and Movies app for accessing purchased and rented content from Apple's storefront. AirPlay 2 is also coming to Harman Kardon's new Citation Series of speakers and the popular VLC streaming app for Android. Mophie battery cases for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR Apple-certified accessory maker Mophie will be releasing Juice Pack Access battery cases for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR for $119.95 each in the first quarter of 2019.

CES 2019: The Best of ShowStoppers and the Show Floor

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show is wrapping up, with Friday being the final day. For our last CES video, we visited ShowStoppers, the show floor, and a few vendor events to show MacRumors readers some of the coolest stuff that we saw this year. Not all of what we have to share is entirely Apple related, but there are definitely some interesting, eye-catching technology products that give us an idea of where the tech sector is headed. Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. Some of the best TV technology at the show came from LG, with the company debuting a 65-inch TV that rolls up. The rolling mechanism lets the TV, which is super thin, tuck away when it's not in use, and then be brought back up when you want to use it. LG's actually going to release the rollable TV, called the OLED TV R, sometime in the spring, but expect it to be sensationally expensive. LG's booth was also something special, outfitted with a seemingly endless array of curved OLED displays. Samsung was on hand showing off its upcoming Bixby speaker, a smart speaker that's designed to compete with the HomePod. The Bixby speaker features a teardrop shape along with three metal legs, with Samsung promising smart home features and immersive sound. The Bixby speaker is set to be released soon. Simplehuman, a company that makes automated trash cans, debuted the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi, which works as a mirror, a lamp, and a speaker, while Kohler was demoing a smart bathtub that won't overfill and super fancy $7000 toilet with a heated seat, LEDs, speakers, Alexa integration,

CES 2019: Scosche Launches New Qi-Based Wireless Charging Options

Scosche today announced the launch of several new products that make Qi wireless charging easier and more convenient for Apple's iPhone 8 and later. MagicMount Charge 3 The new Qi-compatible 10W MagicMount Charge 3 is the latest MagicMount product from Scosche, and it's now available with a unique vent mount that features an articulated swing arm so it doesn't impede airflow from a vehicle's vent. The MagicMount Charge 3 is able to offer up the convenience of a vent mount without the usual drawback of blocking the vent, and it also rotates 360 degrees so your iPhone can be viewed from any angle. The swing arm offers up additional positional options for a customized fit for each vehicle. An iPhone attaches to the MagicMount Charge3 using Neodymium magnets, and the stand has been designed with a thermal management gap that between the phone and the mount to allow heated air to disperse. There are a total of four mounting options for the MagicMount Charge3, including the aforementioned vent mount, a dash mount that uses adhesive, StickGrip mount for the window or the dash, and a double pivot option for more versatility. The MagicMount Charge 3 will be available in spring 2019. Pricing has not yet been announced. MagicGrip Charge Wireless Charging Mount The 10W MagicGrip Charge Qi Mount, designed for use in the car, is a motorized charging stand that uses a sensor to detect when a Qi-enabled device is nearby. When a Qi device like an iPhone is aligned with the charging coil of the accessory, the arms of the mount automatically close to hold it securely

CES 2019: Pioneer's Smart Sync In-Dash Smartphone Receiver Turns Your iPhone Into a Car Radio Display

Pioneer today announced the U.S. launch of the SPH-10BT, a new in-dash digital media receiver designed to work with a smartphone as a display. The SPH-10BT is Pioneer's first receiver of this type equipped with a built-in smartphone cradle that integrates your own iPhone or Android device into your car's entertainment system. While in the cradle, the smartphone becomes "visually combined" with the receiver, turning it into a full high-resolution LCD display for accessing Pioneer Smart Sync Driving functions via touch controls when paired with Pioneer's receiver."The single-DIN chassis size is almost universal, with the ability to be installed in both older and newer vehicles. However, given its compact size, a single-DIN receiver often lacks a large touchscreen or the ability to integrate well with the smartphone," said Ted Cardenas, vice president of marketing for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "The SPH-10BT offers a very unique solution by integrating the smartphone both electronically and physically."The SPH-10BT smartphone setup is compatible with Pioneer's ND-PS1 rear parking sensors and will provide both audible object warnings and visual indicators when connected to sensors installed in the rear vehicle bumper. While the smartphone integration offers up simple touch controls, the SPH-10BT is also equipped with physical buttons for switching between music sources, activating voice control, accessing navigation apps, reading incoming messages, making phone calls over Bluetooth, and launching into the Pioneer Smart Sync app. A smartphone is able to

CES 2019: Alpine Previews New CarPlay Receivers, One Features Oversized 9-Inch Hovering Screen

Alpine Electronics at CES 2019 this week debuted two new in-car multimedia receivers with wired CarPlay and Android Auto support. The new iLX-W650 receiver features a seven-inch anti-glare capacitive touchscreen with a shallow chassis that measures 2.4-inches deep, allowing for the system to fit into vehicles that do not have a lot of depth behind the dashboard. The receiver has a so-called mech-less design with no CD/DVD slot. iLX-W650 The iLX-W650 also features an amp-stacking capability that enables Alpine's new KTA-450 amplifier to fit in the open space behind the receiver using an included bracket. The combined depth of the iLX-W650, KTA-450, and mounting bracket equals less than the depth of a standard double-DIN chassis. The iLX-W650 in tandem with the KTA-450 amplifier won a CES 2019 Innovation Award in the In-Vehicle Audio/Video category. Other features include standard Bluetooth music playback, SiriusXM readiness, and three 4V pre-outs that allow aftermarket speakers, subwoofers, additional amplifiers, and sound processors to be added. Two camera inputs sold separately allow for the addition of multiple cameras, including a rear-view camera. Alpine also added a second model to its Halo9 product lineup. Like last year's iLX-F309, the new iLX-F259 receiver features a nine-inch capacitive touchscreen that "hovers" over the dashboard, allowing the oversize screen to be added to a variety of vehicles without the need for custom installation. The screen is attached to an adjustable mount that is connected to a traditional single-DIN chassis. It

Plex Said to Be Mulling Ad-Supported Movies and More Premium Content Subscriptions

In a bid to compete with the likes of Amazon Prime and Roku, Plex is reportedly planning to offer users ad-supported movies and premium content subscriptions through its platform. Plex Web Shows According to TechCrunch, the personal media management service is already in discussions with rights holders and networks to bring ad-supported content to the Plex platform, in a manner similar to the way in which The Roku Channel got up and running. It's also said to be in talks with premium networks and content providers about offering their programming and subscriptions through Plex. The idea apparently emerged out of Plex's agreement to bundle Tidal's music streaming service, as this meant it had to build transactional capabilities into its platform that were previously non-existent. "Now we have the ability to sell other services and bundles," noted Plex co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Scott Olechowski, in a discussion this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. "We're bundling a Plex Pass with TIDAL. That took a little bit of backend work," he continued. "You can imagine a bunch of different premium [content] that comes together in a single or multiple bundles, potentially."The premium content would be presented to users through the existing Plex interface, which is organized by media type (music, movies, TV, etc.), and would allow them to easily see what sort of content they have access to based on their subscription. Meanwhile, ad-supported movies would be delivered using Plex's existing ad tech platform, which serves ads in its existing

Anker's PowerPort Atom PD 1 The PowerPort Atom PD 1 is about the size of the five-watt charger that comes in the box with every iPhone thanks to the use of gallium nitride components. Nonetheless, it has a max output of 30W, enough to charge not only smartphones but larger devices such as a 12-inch MacBook, Chromebook, or a Nintendo Switch. The Atom series will be Anker's new line of slim, lightweight Power Delivery wall chargers, with a 60-watt dual USB-C port Atom PD 2 charger and a 100-watt dual USB-C, dual USB-A port Atom PD 4 charger also planned for release. Anker first unveiled the Atom PD 1 at an event in New York City in October, but failed to meet its promised November release date at the time. The charger will be available exclusively on Amazon for $29.99 in the United States, according to the accessory maker, with a revised release date of January 2019.
