While Apple doesn’t make a public appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, most of the companies building products for Macs and iOS devices do. That’s why we have most of the team at CES 2016 this year covering the new and notable for Apple related products as the show officially kicks off tomorrow.
It can be a little much to go through day by day with announcements already happening by the hour, so we’re compiling the best of the best here to give you one quick and easy place to check out all of the best new iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch accessories on show this week.
Products that support Apple’s HomeKit platform are one area we have our eye on this year, while we’re also seeing a lot of accessories that support USB Type-C for owners of the new 12-inch MacBook.
We start things off with a first for Apple’s Siri-controlled HomeKit platform, a connected ceiling fan from Hunter…
