PopSockets Enters the Phone Case Category Revealing iPhone 13 Offerings

BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PopSockets, a global lifestyle accessories brand, announced the PopCase, a multi-functional protective phone case. Designed with a slidable grip for adjustable comfort and standing, the PopCase elevates the standard phone case to a multi-tool solution that is sleek, durable, and functional. PopCase is available now for iPhone 12 devices and for pre-order for iPhone 13 with four translucent colorways designed specifically for the launch.

PopCase's integrated, slidable grip sits on a thin plastic band that moves up-and-down along channels on the sides of the case. The channel allows users to slide up and perfectly center the grip, giving a balanced mounting and landscape viewing experience, and to slide down for portrait stand mode—ideal for FaceTime, Zoom calls, creating TikTok videos, and wireless charging.

"When we launched the original grip in 2014, it felt natural to fix the grip to the center of phones. Over the years, as devices have evolved around wireless charging and more portrait-video app use, it became clear that we needed a movable grip experience," said Randy Chiang, VP Design and Development at PopSockets. "COVID-19 reminded us how important video calls are to staying connected to our friends, family, and peers—being able to quickly transform your stand into portrait mode is a must-have now and for the future."

The hero lineup features four translucent colorways including Spearmint, Peachy, Purple, and Clear. View the product video here.

  • Swappable Grips: Press down and twist grip 90° to swap with any of the 500+ grip options

In 2014, PopSockets launched from Barnett's garage in Boulder, CO, and today it has offices globally. PopSockets exists to change the world for the better with empowering, expressive, fun products and community activism.
