One of the best things about owning an iPhone is that there are plenty of options when it comes to accessories. Apple sells everything from AirPods, HomePods, iPhone cases, memory expansion, screen protectors, lightning to USB cables, and wireless charging docks.
With so many iPhone accessories out there, it can be challenging to know exactly which ones to buy. To help out, we've compiled a list of some the best accessories from Apple for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and the iPhone X.
Apple introduced AirPods, new wireless earbuds that are 'looking to change the way people listen to music', in 2016. Sure, we're used to wired earphones but Apple's AirPods takes the hassle out of having to untangle them everytime we put them in a backpack with laptop chargers. Apple's AirPods have been flying off the shelves since they were introduced, but they're available to buy via Apple's Store online and major retailers such as Best Buy.
Apple's HomePod is here to compete against Amazon's Echo and Google Home. Combining Apple Music and Siri, Apple's HomePod is focused on providing an immersive listening experience to music and smartphone enthusiasts. Since Apple's HomePod is also a smart assistant, the speaker can help out with tasks around the house, catch the latest updates on the weather, and headlines in the news for the day. Apple's HomePod will be available starting Feb. 9.
Apple iPhone Cases
Apple offers a large variety of colorful cases for the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X. Most cases cost anywhere between $35.00 and $100.00. Apple designed an exclusive Smart Battery Case to provide iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8 owners longer battery life and protection. The Smart Battery Case also displays how much battery juice is left on the phone's lock screen.
Anker PowerLine Lightning Cable
Apple offers lightning cables ranging from $19.00 to $35.00. However, the best lightning cables tend to come from Amazon. For example, Anker PowerLine Lightning Cable not only costs $7.00 it also provides fast charging compared to most USB chargers on the market. It is also very durable, Apple charges more for its lightning cables but it doesn't even seem to survive for that long.
Belkin Valet Charge Dock
Own an iPhone and iWatch? Belkin's Valet Charge Dock can charge both iOS devices simultaneously using the same cable. It might be a bit pricey but at least users don't have to use any charging cables. This stylish charging dock comes available in Silver, Rose Gold, and Black.
