ESR has announced the launch of new MagSafe-compatible HaloLock and clear cases made for the new iPhone 14 series. This generation upgrades to Camera Guard, a feature designed to protect those pronounced Apple camera-humps that also flips out to become a kickstand. The OEM has also premiered its new Krystec technology for enhanced resistance to discoloration in this series.

ESR found itself inadvertently caught up in one of the new iPhone 14 Plus' most definitive leaks ahead of its launch, with hints at a new feature from this accessory OEM called Krystec. Now, with the debut of its latest 14-series cases, the company has confirmed that it exists and explains what it does.

Krystec, as it turns out, is a new form of polycarbonate "innovatively engineered" to avoid the discoloration that is so often a drawback of clear cases. ESR asserts that its new cases with this tech will in fact never acquire so much as a hint of a yellow tinge during the working life of the freshly-ordered unit in question.

Krystec has been unleashed in ESR Clear Cases with and without HaloLock, starting at US$24.99 and $29.99 respectively. Alternatively, the OEM has another new feature for those more concerned for those camera humps that seem to want to be telescopes more than ever in 2022, particularly in the triple-lensed Pro variants.

ESR's Classic Kickstand cases upgrade to a new Camera Guard, a "highly-adjustable zinc-alloy" frame for Apple's signature rear camera islands built into the rest of the case via a little hinge with "military-grade durability". It allows the Guard to convert into a prop for potentially improved hands-free iPhone content consumption.

Again, they are available with and without the HaloLock ring, priced at US$27.99 to $32.99. The entire new 14-series range has been released to ESRGear.com thus far, with availability via Amazon to follow.

Meanwhile, the OEM's Air Armor case for the iPhone 13 Pro series, which has a Camera Guard but not one that flips out, is available for US$15.99.
