The new case, which comes in multiple color options, retails for $60.


If you're someone who likes the idea of a PopSocket PopGrip, but doesn't like the idea of sticking one on the back of your case, Otterbox has come up with the perfect solution: an Otterbox Symmetry Series case with a built-in PopGrip and a swappable PopTop that retracts into the case. It's called the Otter + Pop.

The key here is that the integrated PopGrip lays flush with the case when not in use. Each case comes with a case-matched PopTop color, but you can swap in another PopTop with a "simple turn and a snap," Otterbox says.

Otter + Pop is available for the  iPhone XS , iPhone X, iPhone 8 , iPhone 8 Plus , iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus starting at $60. Individual swappable PopTops start at $8. There's no word yet on international pricing, but we'll add it as soon as we get it.

Other PopTops can be swapped in.
