Buy a Double Duty Case

Audeze has been crafting premium headphones with a lightning connector for a while now, and their EL-8 Titanium model offers amazing sound.
Use the Hard Press

In some cases, hard pressing notifications will open a list of shortcut features you can access with or without unlocking the device.
Get a Keyboard
