Kensington BungeeAir Wireless Security Tether: The Lost iPhone Prototypes Could Have Used This

by Lambert Varias

Here’s a handy case that could have prevented the loss of the iPhone prototypes. Gadget security expert Kensington has made a case with a complementary key fob and app to help you locate and secure your iPhone and its contents. If your iPhone and the key fob get separated, the BungeeAir will automatically trigger an alarm on the key fob and lock the iPhone’s screen.

Using the complementary app, you can tweak the Bungee Air’s security settings, including the separation distance at which the alarm will go off. In case you still can’t picture how the BungeeAir works, here’s a demo:

The functionality works both ways too – if you have the iPhone on hand but can’t find the key fob (and whatever else may be attached to it), you can trigger the alarm from the app:

The Kensington BungeeAir iPhone case is available in two versions. The case that comes with an additional battery that provides up to 4 hours of call time is available at Amazon for $100 (USD). But if all you need is the security function, an $80 version is forthcoming and can be pre-ordered directly from Kensington.
