13 iPhone Accessories You Should Be Using
1. Kenu Stance Tripod
Compact and impressively intuitive, the Kenu Stance Tripod lets you prop up your iPhone in either portrait or landscape view with ease. It’s an incredibly handy tripod for photography, videography, hands-free reading, and video conferencing.
Size isn’t an issue with the Kenu Stance as you can easily keep it in your pocket when it’s folded. Its three legs are easily adjustable, so getting the right angle for your photos and videos wouldn’t be much of a problem, either.
The latest update to the original design now features a stronger Lightning port connector and an additional keyring attachment. On top of everything, it can also be used as a bottle opener.
2. Tile Style
Aptly coined as the “anything-finder,” the Tile Style is a great solution to the “I-can’t-remember-where-I-last-placed-my-stuff” epidemic.
Tile is a water-resistant Bluetooth tracker you can attach to any item you don’t want to lose like your keys.
Running late in the morning and can’t find your keys? Simply open the app on your iPhone and let the Tile play a sound for you to find them quickly.
It has a 200-ft. range and double the volume of its cousins Tile Mate and Tile slim. If unfortunately, you lose an item, the Tile will:
- report its last known location
- send an alert if the lost item is within Tile’s range
In case you misplace your phone, you can press the button on the Tile and it will make your phone ring even if it’s on silent.
3. RAVPower Alpha Series Fast Charge Wireless Charging Pad
RAVPower Wireless Charging Pad is small, durable, and can truly power up devices quickly. It can fully charge an iPhone 8 in only two and a half hours.
It comes with a multipurpose smart indicator on its front pad that lights up to show your iPhone’s current battery status. With its silicon anti-skid design, you won’t have to worry about your device sliding off.
4. Rokform Pro Series Bike Mount and Case
Keep your phone easily accessible and safe while cycling by installing the Rokform Pro Series Bike Mount and using the dedicated Rokfirm case.
Engineered with both design and quality in mind, you can easily fit it to the stem of your bike without worrying about its overall aesthetic. Unlike other bulky and obstructive mounts available in the market, the Rokform is made sleek and sophisticated.
Rokform also provides cyclists with the utmost customization with its -20 to +55° tilt spectrum. Finding the perfect angle for your screen won’t be a problem.
You can also conquer any type of terrain or weather by getting a Rokform Weather Resistant Skin. This case can protect your iPhone from water, dirt, oil, and dust.
5. Nomad Rugged Cable
Are you looking for cables that can withstand all the elements? You’ll love the Nomad Rugged Cable.
It’s made with a Kevlar core coated in a fire-resistant PVC jacked and enclosed in rugged black and gray ballistic nylon. At about twice the girth of Apple’s lightning cable, it’s also twice as durable.
To add an extra layer of protection, it also comes with seal caps to protect it from dust and filth.
One thing is for sure, the Nomad Rugged Cable is made to last.
6. HooToo Flash Drive
The price difference of a 64 GB iPhone and 256 GB is quite enormous. Additional iCloud storage isn’t cheap either.
If you’re looking to expand your iPhone’s limited storage, HooToo Flash Drive is a must-have.
On one end, the HooToo has a Lighting connector and a USB 3.0 on the other; in between is a 32 GB storage for your files. File transfer is pretty simple with the use of an app.
For backup, it offers a backup capability that does not require a cable.
Is it safe to use? Yep, it is MFi-certified.
MFi-certified Definition: The acronym stands for “Made-for-iPhone/iPod/iPad.” MFi-certification is a licensing program for makers of hardware and software compatible with Apple products.
When a group of college students could not find a fashionable solution to the problem of constantly losing their IDs and credit cards, they made Cardly.
Cardly products aren’t revolutionary tech, but they are a smart and aesthetic solution to losing items and having bulky pockets. Just pick a design that appeals to your taste and simply attach it to the back of your iPhone.
No need to bring your wallets for quick trips when you can easily slip your ID, credit cards, and other small items in the back of your iPhone.
A Cardly packet comes with two adhesive sleeves you can share with a buddy or keep as a backup. The chances of the latter happening are very slim though as the adhesive used in these pockets is impressively strong.
