Kensington has simply introduced the Studio Caddy, a wildly elaborate stand that goals to juice up and maintain all of your Apple tech directly.
The Studio Caddy is Kensignton’s newest high-end and high-priced Apple accent and it’s fairly one thing. This dock is designed to cost up a number of units directly and preserve every thing tidy within the course of.
The dock is available in two elements and you should utilize them collectively (they connect magnetically) or individually, relying on the way you need to organize your setup.
One portion has a removable Qi charger in your iPhone 12 (or any supported telephone, for that matter) and one other wi-fi charger for a pair of AirPods. The charger designed for the iPhone is vertically positioned, so you possibly can control notifications whereas your telephone is charging.
There’s additionally a USB-C (20w) port and a USB-A (12w) port on the aspect for plugging in cables to cost different objects, possibly an Apple Watch 6, a greatest Android telephone or the iPad behind. You would even cost the MacBook this manner, nevertheless with solely 20w it might juice up very slowly.

After all, whereas Kensington is focusing on this purely at Apple customers there isn’t a motive why it wouldn’t carry out the identical performance with different tablets, a Home windows laptop computer or Android telephones.
It looks as if this is able to have been an excellent product for some MagSafe integration.
