Socket Mobile Ships DuraCase for Apple iPhones - iPhone 6, 7, 8 and 6, 7, 8 Plus

NEWARK, California, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Socket Mobile, Inc. (SCKT), a leading innovator of data capture and delivery solutions for enhanced productivity, is announcing the DuraCase for Apple's iPhone and iPhone Plus mobile phones is now shipping. The DuraCase for iPhone is a one-handed, protective sled, featuring rubberized material which increases drop protection and durability for both the iPhone and the 800 Series scanner.

"We are delighted to be shipping the DuraCase for iPhone Series, which will enable our many iOS application developers to deploy robust and reliable barcode scanning solutions to their iPhone customers. The DuraCase for iPhone combines an iPhone, a SocketScan 800 Series, and a protective case into a single-handed solution. It is designed to charge both the scanner and Apple's iPhone in a single-charging unit. For larger deployments, the 6 Multi-Bay Charger charges up to 6 DuraCase solutions simultaneously. For warehouse environments and automobile, there will be a vehicle charging dock for DuraCase.

"We already have many developers who support the DuraCase for iPod touch solution, which has proven to be a popular, reliable and winning solution. These developers will be able to move customers to the iPhone-based solution; they can service the requirement for larger screens or deploy their solution to a mobile workforce. While the DuraCase solution can be deployed without any software development using Keyboard emulation mode (HID), developers are encouraged to use our Capture SDK in their application to maximize worker efficiency when robust, reliable, and rapid scanning is required.

"Overall, we feel the DuraCase for iPhones is a solution that will enable and grow the market for iPhone-centric solutions with a robust scanning requirement," said Vanessa Lindsay, Senior Product Manager.

Introductory Prices through March 31, 2019:

$99 DuraCase for iPhone 6,7,8 or Plus MSRP

DuraCase with Charging Dock: $149

Socket Mobile is committed to the Apple iPhone space and plans to launch the DuraCase for iPhone XR in the 3rd quarter, followed by support for the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS.
