With over 20,000 mobile phones lost or stolen every day in the UK1, Avanquest Software Publishing has announced the release of the iKeep, a new anti-theft security accessory for Apple devices. Featuring a clip-on design and extendable / retractable 24” nylon cord, the iPhone 4S and previous generation models are kept safe and secure from thieves, loss and accidental damage while still enabling users to access the full functionality of their smartphone or tablet.
Losing a smartphone to theft or terminal damage can cause frustration as collections of contacts, pictures or videos are lost; the cost of a replacement product can also be prohibitively high. With 600,000 mobile phones dropped in the toilet each year, 400,000 dropped in drinks and 200,000 going through washing machines2, the patent pending clip of the iKeep secures iPhones and iPods to protect against accidental loss, fall damage and pickpocketing.
The iKeep is also suited to those who enjoy activities such as running, cycling and hiking but want to keep their iPhone or iPod close without the risk of it getting lost or damaged. With the average cost of an iPhone 4 screen repair at around £60, and phone insurance from a mobile provider approximately £150 per year, iKeep can provide the owner with the confidence to take their iPhone or iPod anywhere. iKeep’s lightweight design makes it unobtrusive and comfortable to wear while undertaking rigorous activities, and is easily attachable to buckles, loops or straps on sportswear.
Features of the iKeep include:
* Retractable 24” nylon cord - keeping attached iPhones near and safe at all times
* Patent pending clip on design - the unique clip secures firmly and easily
* Functional cord length - this allows a connected phone to be used while secured
* Lightweight, stylish design - for functional use indoors or outdoors
* Range of colours - iKeep is available in silver, blue, pink, black and white
* 30 pin push release connector - the easy release connector works with the iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS, 3G, and first generation models as well as iPods and iPads
iKeep is a stylish and sleek security solution, providing peace of mind for the user in crowds or situations where their Apple device could get damaged or lost. Suitable to secure an iPad, iPhone or iPod, it is also an ideal accessory for women who want to secure their device in their handbag, and for anybody who regularly attends busy events such as football matches, festivals, concerts and gigs. Parents can trust their child at school with an expensive iPhone by securing it with the device and those travelling abroad can explore safe in the knowledge that their Apple product will not be stolen.
