We’re all excited to update to Apple’s new iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad after the official public release yesterday, but making sure you have your backups in order beforehand so you don’t lose any data can sometimes be a nerve-racking task. If you happen to encounter a problem with the update– like missing data, iOS update failures or a frozen phone– there might still be a way to recover what you’ve lost and complete your iOS 11 update without issue…

PhoneRescue from iMobie allows you to access deleted and lost data on iOS 11, and even browse through data in your iCloud backups to pull individual files as needed. And with the latest release that brings support for the software on iOS 11 and High Sierra, there is also now a built-in iOS Repair feature that will fix the most common iOS update issues– such as Recovery Mode problems, phones stuck on the Apple logo during reboot, and other iOS update failures– all while preserving your data in the process.

X-Doria is launching its new Defense Shield and Defense Lux lines for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, and it isn’t using the term ‘defense’ lightly. The Defense line exceeds Military Grade Drop Protection standards, surviving up to 10 ft drops (on concrete!), and the company is confident enough to offer a lifetime warranty on all Defense cases.

For the new iPhones, X-Doria has also made a number of enhancements to the best-selling lineup…

Last month, Microsoft announced the release of Visual Studio for Mac: a full-featured development environment to help developers on the Mac create apps, games, and services for mobile, cloud, and web. It’s natively designed for macOS, so both the design – from the toolbar to the file dialogs – and the developer workflow should feel right at home to Mac users. It is also a best-in-class advanced C# code editor – with IntelliSense and a refactoring experience that includes a preview of the proposed code changes.

As more apps move to a subscription model, Setapp offers a “Netflix for Mac apps” experience that could be the way forward. One subscription with one monthly fee to get access to every app you need and also discover new ones, all curated so you only get the best options for the task at hand. Currently offering 69 apps (normally worth $2,227.29), you can use all of them through Setapp, free for the first month and $9.99/month after.

And you’ll never have to worry about updates as you get the latest and new apps as they’re added. There are also no ads or in-app purchases in Setapp. Here’s how it works:

Spigen is launching an updated version of its Ultra Hybrid case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, this time around introducing a number of new features to improve what was already one of its most popular cases for the new iPhone models.

Spigen has kept all of the features that made the original popular, including the crystal clear polycarbonate back that lets you show off the new black and jet black finishes particularly well, but it also has redesigned the case to be even more durable and with higher-end finishes for the Ultra Hybrid 2.

Designed specifically for Apple’s AirPods, Spigen’s new AirPods Stand offers one of the first charging dock solutions to keep your case upright on a desktop, bedside table, or any other flat surface.

The edges of the AirPods charging case are rounded, and while that makes it particularly nice to carry around in your pants pocket, it means the case won’t stand up on its own. Spigen’s stand ($11.99) fixes that problem, by giving you a desktop stand that doubles as a charging dock with a cutout that lets you insert your own Lightning cable in the back.

HyperDrive is a compact, super-fast USB-C hub for the new MacBook Pro and the first to take full advantage of Thunderbolt 3 speeds. Add back HDMI, two USB 3.1 ports, a microSD/SD slot, as well as Thunderbolt 3 & USB-C ports with a sleek aluminum hub available in both silver and space gray to match the new 2016 MacBook Pro perfectly.

Unlike most USB-C dongles which still run on slow USB 3.0 (5Gb/s) speed, HyperDrive is 10X faster by using not one but two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connections. Not only are other Thunderbolt 3 docks much bigger and bulkier making them nowhere near as portable, HyperDrive is also the first and only hub to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3’s maximum bandwidth to deliver more ports in the smallest possible footprint. That means you can use all ports on HyperDrive simultaneously without issue….

The iPhone accessory market is crowded with overpriced and heavy-duty cases. One company, however, has spent the last couple of years specifically going against the grain. This week’s sponsor, totallee, an iPhone accessory startup based in Southern California, has been shaking up the industry by producing thin and affordable iPhone cases.

For years, iPhone accessory makers have charged people upwards of $40 for a phone case. Totallee decided to make high-quality cases more affordable by cutting out the middleman and selling directly to consumers. All their cases are priced at only $19 and they offer free shipping within the U.S. To make your order completely risk-free, totallee backs every case with a 2 year warranty.

To sweeten the deal totallee is offering all 9to5mac readers 30% off their entire product line until December 31, 2016. Simply use coupon code “UGLYSWEATER” during checkout to get your 30% discount.

Spigen’s new ultimate Kuel AP12T Car Mount features a super low-profile design with a telescopic arm and a rotating phone mount to let you adjust your device in just about any direction. You can adjust the length of the arm to extend out up to 9.2 inches from the base, or keep it more compact at 5 inches when retracted, and you can tilt and rotate the phone itself to get an ideal viewing angle for your specific car’s dash. You can see it in action in the video below. 

The phone will also rotate to work into both landscape and portrait orientations, and it folds down into itself to have the lowest-profile possible and reduce any obstruction to your view of the road while driving. A self adjusting smartphone holder means the mount will automatically open and lock to the width of your phone for easy one-handed docking. It will attach to both a windshield or dash (except for leather dashboards).

It just launched, but you can get 40% off today only for Cyber Monday making it just $15 with code AP12T40P.
