Welcome to my weekly recap here at iPhone Life. Each week I take a look back at some of the top news headlines, rumors and updates in the world of iOS that made headlines.
*Apple’s iOS: The most popular gaming platform ever?
*Apple vs Samsung: The ongoing battle continues.
*Are you “Hackproof”? A Tech Journalist's example to us all.
*First crop of refurbished current generation iPads hit the Apple store online.
*Apple drops YouTube as an included app in iOS 6.
The Hundreds has teamed up with HEX to produce a new series of classy yet practical iPhone cases called the HEX Code Wallet. This collaboration Code Wallet is a stylish leather iPhone case/wallet that will appeal to kids and adults alike. The newest iteration Code Wallet features embossed leather motifs featuring The Hundred's signature “Jags” pattern, and the understated yet electric, trademark "Adam Bomb" accent colors and patterns in low-key card pockets, and more prominently in the lining of the iPhone’s protective polycarbonate shell.
I could just as easily see an urban executive using this case as I could see a high school student. These cases provide a uncomplicated and elegant solution for anyone looking for a moderate level of protection in a case that also provides space for credit cards, an emergency key, cash and IDs.
It's no secret, there are a plethora of cases out there that offer extreme protection for your iPhone. Some are definitely designed better than others, and some are bulky, and others less so. In fact, many cases offer protection from water, dust, shock, vibration and impact, but only one company offers the assurance that if your iPhone breaks while it's in their case, they will replace your device.
Could it be a result of rumors that Apple is showing possible interest in purchasing Sprint?
To me, that's really the only thing that would make sense. Else, why not promote the best-selling and top quality smartphone on the market? If you didn't know, both AT&T as well as Verizon have been accused as of late, of directing people away from the iPhone, with AT&T even having been rumored to be offering extra commission for non-iPhone sales.
Last month it was reported that Electronic Arts (EA) was combining two of its mobile game design studios. Firemint, who make the hit racing series Real Racing, with Iron Monkey, who have developed for EA, stellar games like Mass Effect: Infiltrator as well as the award-winning Dead Space, have now been consolidated to form Firemonkeys. What can we expect to see from the joining of these two great design studios?
Well, good news racing fans! Now hot on the heels of this merger, Firmonkeys has just released a trailer for the upcoming Real Racing 3.
It’s a unique move on the part of the French game designing company Gameloft, and an ingenious marketing strategy. Yesterday they dropped a hint on their Facebook page
in the form of a wicked screenshot, of their soon-to-be-released mobile game. While they provided few details, they did invite followers to guess what the game is, noting that a clue to the name of the game, as well as the storyline, could be found within the image. Additionally, they opened up voting as to whether they should release another teaser image or a video trailer. I vote trailer!
Introducing the RAILKASE, from Scosche.
Scosche’s has entered into the diverse and extensive field of rugged protection iPhone cases with what they call, the RAILKASE. The RAILKASE is a clever design that offers should offer a significant amount of protection for your iPhone, in most of the everyday circumstances you might encounter. This case isn't necessarily an extreme duty or military spec case, and it does lack one essential component that I feel any case claiming to be truly "ruggedized" ought to have, that being a built-in screen protector, but for most people in most situations, the Scosche RAILKASE will be more than enough to keep their iPhone safe and sound.

The Third Rail slim case for the iPhone is an ingenious invention and perhaps one of my favorite portable charging solutions for the iPhone. Its versatility is a huge plus as is it’s minimalistic yet still, very protective design.
The Third Rail is indeed a slim, stylish and low-key option for a protective shield for the iPhone and as a stand-alone case by itself, would be worth considering. When you add to the equation, the fact that the Third Rail case is crafted to accept snap-on battery packs (as many as 6 of the ¼ inch deep, 1,250 mAh batteries can be stacked on) this case is hard to pass up! For anyone looking for a way to increase the time between having to plug your iPhone into a wall charger, while still keeping with the iPhone’s sleek and trim aesthetic, this is a case worth considering.
