Invention Design for Apple Products: MAKO's Top Picks of 2021

MAKO’s Top Accessories for Apple Products in 2021

Every year Apple fanatics look forward to the month of September. It’s around this time of year when Apple hosts various events to unveil its new lineup of products. Last year, in the late fall and early winter months, Apple showed off new Watches, iPad models, MacBooks, and of course, the iPhone 12. So in preparation for some potentially mind-blowing news from Apple, here are MAKO’s favorite invention design for Apple products.

Kharaband watch strap invention design for Apple products.


Never worry about how long your Apple Watch will last thanks to our client’s product, the Kharaband. The Kharaband is a watch band that extends the battery life for the Apple Watch and other smartwatches. They use high-performance fluoroelastomer and anodized aluminum for a premium, flexible and comfortable finish. Take your Apple Watch on the go for longer, up to 5,000 hours longer to be exact! 

Sony WF-1000XM4

Want the convenience of wireless earbuds without sacrificing audio quality? Sure, Apple AirPods get the basic job done, but the audiophiles out there choose the WF-1000XM4. Building upon the success of the XM3, Sony’s newest wireless earbuds invention design improves upon almost every aspect of the previous model.

Their new ANC (active noise cancelling) technology blocks out any unwanted outside sounds. Listen for almost eight hours straight on a single charge thanks to its upgraded battery and usage of Bluetooth 5.2 tech. The charging case is also almost half the size of the XM3 case, so you can actually put it in your pockets this time around.

Our favorite upgrade is the slimmer profile and IPX4 rating. While IPX4 in itself isn’t a big deal, it’s a massive upgrade over the XM3 invention design, which featured no water-resistant rating. That means you can enjoy audiophile-grade sound at the gym for once!

Nomad Case

Nomad Leather Cases

Multiple models, all great options. Whether you choose the sleeve, folio, or other styles for the iPhone 12 series, you can’t go wrong. Nomad’s invention design for Apple products uses leather from the Horween Leather Co. of Chicago. The more you use it, the better it looks. Because over time, the leather will patina developing a beautiful shine as the material darkens.

The best part? Almost all these cases come with MagSafe built directly inside the case, so you can charge it wirelessly without removing the case.
