OWC at 30: Continuing to Offer the Products Customers Need to Protect Their Technology and Improve Their Workflow

In conjunction with Apple’s announcement, OWC releases protective phone cases and an AR/VR Development Kit to take users to the next level.

WOODSTOCK, IL – September 12, 2018OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, and a leading provider of performance upgrades and accessories for Apple products, announced the availability of NewerTech NuGuard KX cases for the new line of iPhones revealed during Apple’s event this afternoon.

The new line of iPhones includes technology that will sense a fall or drop and be able to compensate for it and better protect the phone. OWC understands that a new iPhone is a technology investment, and offers the KX Case to work with Apple's new technology, offering further protection for that investment, and thereby extending the life of the product. The KX Cases are built with precision cutouts to allow for complete access to all of the buttons and ports on the phone. And with revolutionary X-orbing gel technology evenly distributing kinetic energy throughout the case, users can rest assured that their phone is protected.

Taking technology further than it has gone before is a common thread between Apple and OWC. For users who work and play in VR/AR arenas, OWC offers the OWC AR/VR Development Kit, consisting of the OWC Mercury Helios FX and the OWC Express 4M2. The Helios FX eGPU chassis is built to empower users, bringing creative visions to life. The Express 4M2 can be customized with up to four NVMe SSDs, giving users the ability to push creative projects further.
