Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, today announced it has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Cypress Hero EcoSmart® Backpack, featuring built-in Apple® Find My™ Technology.

The bag launches next spring and features a built-in tracking device that connects to your iPhone so that you can find it using the Find My network should you ever lose it. Built to carry a laptop up to sixteen inches, the backpack would be perfect for Apple's best MacBook, the new MacBook Pro (2021), as well as other smaller devices.

We have combined the latest Apple technology with a smart, carefully designed backpack that meets the needs of today's mobile and eco-conscious consumers for superior comfort, convenience, and functionality – whether at home, in the office, or on the go."
