Oh, the iPhone. It’s so much more than just a phone. It’s a conduit for more technology and additional gadgets; enough for there to be an entire industry dedicated to making things that work with it. And since Apple products are typically perched atop the tech food chain — they make the most money, you see — the accessories made for them, and the iPhone in particular, are often of a higher quality than those made for other devices.
Which, brings us to your exquisite taste. You deserve more than the ordinary, meaning you can’t purchase any old phone case, screen protector, or pair of headphones. From a spare Lightning cable, to a luxurious phone case, all the way to an audio transmitter, here are eight accessories that’ll make your iPhone even more desirable:
The LuxBox Case
Let’s start with luxury’s favorite phone case. Protection over everything else, right? Only this time, you won’t have to sacrifice style for safety. The Luxbox case let’s you marvel in your iPhone’s beauty by stirring in some of it’s own. Unlike most (protective) iPhone cases, it’s unimold body is both protective and stylish. Not to mention, the unique wooden, wool and marble textures are way more fun to hold in your hand than cheap plastic.
Mad Catz Micro C.T.R.L.i Mobile Gamepad
This handy iPhone accessory is for gamers (obviously). It’s a compact gamepad that connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth. It includes a special, adjustable clip, so you can attach your iPhone directly to it. Official Apple certification means it will work with any device running iOS 7 or later. You can get bigger gamepads for your iPhone, but this one is nice and portable, making it ideal for any situation.
Nomad Battery Cable
This ultra tough cable by Nomad has a built-in 2,350 mAh battery, which is sufficient enough to fully charge an iPhone 7, or to deliver an extra day of usage from an iPhone 7 Plus. Nomad has designed the 5-foot-long cable to charge the iPhone first, and then top up its battery.
Ungrip Smartphone Grip System
Need to get a grip on your smartphone? Try the Ungrip Smartphone Grip System. Attaching to the back of your device, Ungrip offers a fabric loop to increase your dexterity. Simply slide the loop around your finger and enjoy the freedom of movement as you can access every corner of the screen. In addition to this dexterity, Ungrip is super comfortable with the fabric design. It also comes with an adhesive backing, so attachment to your device takes just seconds.
iPhone Lightning Dock
The official iPhone Lightning Dock by Apple allows users to use regular wired headphones while charging their device. A handy desktop companion, the dock is available in colors that match those of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
ClutchIt Magnetic Phone Mount
Attach your device wherever is convenient with the ClutchIt Magnetic Phone Mount. This small yet mighty device offers you one-handed accessibility anywhere. Unlike some car docks, it features a double-sided magnet to attach to a variety of surfaces with the metal plate pads. In addition, it holds your device with strength. ClutchIt is great for your car, perfect for the kitchen, and functions just about anywhere. No to mention, it also functions on your desktop or other flat surfaces as a phone stand. No matter how you use it, ClutchIt will holds your device right where you want it.
Anker 2-in-1 3.5 Bluetooth Audio Transmitter Receiver
iPhone 7’ers: Just because Apple says the 3.5mm jack is dead doesn’t mean you have to listen. The Anker 2-in-1 is a rechargeable Bluetooth transmitter that’s small enough to carry around with you on the go, but powerful enough to make sure you never lose signal—at the gym, on the train or anywhere else you want to listen to music, but don’t want to tie up your Lightning Port or look like an asshole with Apple’s stupid AirPods. God, I hate those things.
ProtectPax Invisible Screen Protector
Life is far too luxurious to settle for a dreaded cracked screen. Remaining totally invisible, ProtectPax adheres to the front of your device with nanotechnology. Compatible with smartphones, smartwatches, tablets, and more, this system uses liquid glass for superior protection properties. The material is both scratch and break-resistant with a 9H hardness — the same hardness as a ruby, which is six times harder than your current screen.
