You love your iPhone. We get it. But sometimes it can’t do exactly what we want it to do. For example, the iPhone can’t magically power itself on a single charge for 3 to 4 days. It can’t play music that only you can hear. And it definitely is not able to survive being dropped repeatedly. We want you to get the most out of your iPhone experience. That is why we have put together a list of the best iPhone accessories that you need to get.
If you are an iPhone user, the Apple AirPods are truly going to be the best in-ear wireless earbuds. The Apple AirPods are made specifically for the iPhone, so you won’t have any issues pairing them via Bluetooth.
The biggest draw for these headphones is their performance. Not only is the sound impeccable, but they rarely drop connection because of Apple’s dedicated W1 chip, this is inside of the AirPods.
Aside from the performance, the AirPods also have great battery life. You can get five hours of listening time or two hours of talking time. If you run out of battery, don’t worry. The AirPods come with a rechargeable case that you just have to insert the headphones into, and within a matter of minutes, you will be back at a 100% charge. Not only that, but one full charge form the case equates to 24 hours of listening time.
Anker PowerPort Wireless 10
There are many wireless chagrining devices out there, but how do you know if you are getting a quality charger? We like to trust only the top brands in tech, so we decided to review the PowerPort Qi 10 from Anker.
The Anker PowerPort is a versatile charger allowing for 10W fast charging for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Note 7, S7 / S7edge, and S6edge +. But is doesn’t just work with Samsung phones, it is also compatible for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8+, and the superior iPhone X. If the device is not compatible, you will get a rapid blink on the lights around the charger indicating the device is not charging.
The only downside with this charger is that you would have to buy a separate Quick Charge adapter in order to reach the 10W max output. Standard charging is 5W, which is the speed of an average charger. While it might be nice to have 10W fast charge, it is definitely not mandatory, as 5W will still charge your phone at a decent speed.
Overall, the Anker PowerPort performs very well. It is compact with slip-proof pads to ensure the device remains charging, and it provides the wireless charging that we all want. You can get this aesthetically pleasing Qi charger for just $25.99.
Aukey Ora iPhone Camera Lenses
Aukey makes some of the best accessories for iPhones. Aukey Ora iPhone Lenses are not only high quality lenses that will allow you to capture the perfect image, but they are also exceptionally small and lightweight.
There are two different lenses included: The Ora 2-in1 includes a 120 degree Wide Angle Lens and a 15x Macro Lens, which is ideal for a variety of photography scenarios.
-Wide Angle Lens that allows you to openup the view for unbelivalbe landscape photos or wide angle selfies. This lens is compatable to a 52mm lens filter, which is excellent for capturing images of the sky and large bodies of water.
-A Macro Lens that allows you to get 15x closer to your subject for detailed close-ups.
With the package comes the Aukey PL-WD06 Ora 2-in-1 lens set, the lens clip for attaching to any phone, a carrying pouch, and a cleaning cloth.
Overall, this is an average lens set. It is not going to blow your breath away, but it is one of the best options for the price range. For $29.99, you really cant expect to get DSLR quality from these lenses, but you are definitely getting more quality than what you are paying for.
Spigen Slim Armor CS iPhone X Wallet Case
We cant be the only people that hate having things in their pockets. Not only does the Spigen Slim Armor case offer a tremendous amount of protection with its dual layer protection and air cushion technology, but it also allows you to store 2 credit cards in the exterior card slot.
It has a shock-absorbing TPU interior + polycarbonate exterior. Aesthetically, the phone design is very minimal and is slimmer than most other wallet cases. Personally, we also feel that it is sleeker than other wallet cases with its minimal look.
To be completely honest, this is a very nice case, especially if you are just going out on the town for the night. The sliding cover on the back provides quick and easy access to your cards without opening up security issues (cards falling out or people picking them). For the price of $14.99, the Spiegen Slim Armor CS iPhone X case not only allows you to use your phone as a wallet, but it also gives your phone the protection that it needs. This is definitely worth the low price.
AUKEY 10000mAh Power Bank
We are always on the go and sometimes we just don’t have enough battery to make it through the day. This is where the Aukey 10000mAh Power Bank becomes helpful. The Aukey 10000mAh is a portable charger that is the same exact size as an iPhone 7 plus, so it will definitely fit into your pocket. It has the capability of charging two devices at the same time plus It can charge an iPhone 7 3.4 times or an iPhone X 2.5 full times.
The Aukey 10000mAh comes with efficient charging so that you can simultaneously charge two phones at the same time with a combined 2.4A output from the two USB ports. It also has built-in safeguards to protect your device(s) from excessive current, overheating, and overcharging.
The biggest drawback is that this portable charger takes 9 hours to charge form 0% to 100%. If you think about it though, one charge from the Aukey 10000mAh portable charger will give you at least 72 hours of battery life from your iPhone, so we don’t really think that the charge time is too big of a deal.
For the amount of times that the Aukey 10000mAh portable charger has saved us from dead batteries, we can say that it is definitely worth the price of $20.99. Sure, there are other portable chargers that are cheaper, but for the amount of battery recharge that this one offers and the features that come with it, the price of $20.99 will be hard to beat.
LoveHandle Grip and iPhone X Case Combo
PopSockets are a thing of the past and LoveHandles are the new in. The LoveHandle universal grip with case allows you to get a handle on your iPhone X. Literally. The case has the perfect amount of grip with TPU bumpers on the edges to help absorb shock from falls.
LoveHandles are the better version of PopSockets. It is a band that wraps around your fingers to ensure that you will not lose grip when handling your phone. It does not pop out at all, so there is no bulge when it sits in your pocket.
An added benefit is that the LoveHandle wont block you form using Qi charging. Due to the slim style of the case, you can place your phone on the Qi charger while still having your phone in the case. If you are looking for added safety for your iPhone X, the LoveHandle is going to be your best option. We have absolutely zero complaints, especially for the price of only $15.99.
ieGeek LED Bluetooth Speaker Bedside Lamp with 6000mAh Power Bank
The ieGeek LED Speaker is the ultimate speaker. This is not only a portable Bluetooth speaker, but it is also a power bank, bedside lamp and an emergency light. It is portable and waterproof (for outdoor use only). The smart magic lamp has a handle on it that can be used to hang the speaker from anywhere, or carried around.
The speaker supports Bluetooth 4.2 or above with a range of 33 feet. The 4.7W rate power and enhanced bass resonator brings you the perfect and most incredible sound for any event from calming yoga to the overwhelming feel of a nightclub. It is also compatible with iPhones, iPods, iPads, Samsung, or any other Android smartphone and tablet.
The best part about the ieGeek LED Speaker has to be the light and the fact that it is touch control. The smart touch control table light is so simple to use. It has three different levels of brightness while allowing you to chose form seven different colors. This gives you the perfect power to control the environment and atmosphere by using the tips of your fingers.
The one downside of this speaker is the size. It does have the handle for carrying around easily, but it is not a speaker that you will be able to fit into your pocket. The height is comparable to an iPad mini while having the circumference of a 2-liter bottle. If you can get over the size, this is definitely a Bluetooth speaker that is worth the money. For all of the functions included with the ieGeek LED Bluetooth Speaker, we can comfortable say that it is worth the $32.99 price tag.
Overall, there are many options when it comes to iPhone accessories. While some of these accessories are more important than the others, all of them are going to add benefit to your user experience. If you have any accessories that you think are worth making this list, leave a comment below so that we can check them out!
