Moshi refreshes bestselling MacBook accessories and announces support for USB Type-C
San Francisco, Calif. – March 9, 2015 – Moshi
, designer of stylish, high-end electronics and lifestyle accessories, today announced its suite of accessories for Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook.
“Moshi has been creating accessories for the MacBook family since 2008,” said Michael Leonhard, Managing Director of Moshi. “We are excited to update our bestselling accessories to fit the new Apple MacBook design.”
One of the most notable features of Apple’s new MacBook is the USB-C port. The USB-C specification was first announced in December 2013 and its design finalized in August 2014.
“Moshi has developed multiple accessories for FireWire 400, FireWire 800 and Thunderbolt, so USB-C is a logical next step,” said Spencer Pangborn, Director of Product Marketing at Moshi. “USB-C combines the user-friendliness of Apple's reversible Lightning connector with the high-speed data, video and power of Thunderbolt at a more attractive price point. It will take some time, but users can expect to see a lot of cool new USB 3.1 products come out in the next 18 months.”
Moshi will be making the following protective accessories for the new MacBook:
iGlaze, a durable, thin and lightweight polycarbonate case, provides form-fitting protection for MacBook with access to all ports and connectors. Raised rubber feet help with heat dissipation while a precision-tooled design and a specialized coating provide enhanced scratch resistance and a barrier against scratches, dings and dents.
Muse, a slim fit carrying case, combines a padded exterior with a soft Terahedron microfiber lining for a protective and practical combination. Muse features a zipper-free, Velcro-free design to guard against accidental scratches, while its SlipGrip safety catch opening prevents the device from slipping out of the sleeve even when turned upside down. Muse also includes an outer pocket for convenient storage of adaptors and cables.
ClearGuard, an ultra-thin, transparent keyboard protector created from engineering-grade thermoplastic urethane, provides protection against fingerprint grease and accidental spills. At 0.1mm, ClearGuard is one-fifth the thickness of most keyboard protectors, and its high-precision molding allows for a tactile response while typing. ClearGuard is washable and reusable, and provides both comfort and protection.
iVisor, the washable, reusable and 100 percent bubble-free screen protector, offers screen protection that also reduces glare and eyestrain while using your MacBook.
