With the holiday season fast approaching, now is a great time to start thinking about gifts, especially for those hard-to-please members of your friends and family. If you know someone who is wild about their iPhone, then we have suggestions for a selection of great accessories and extras that will enhance their iPhone experience. All of these can be ordered from Amazon to have them delivered to your door in plenty of time for the holidays, so you can make the day of the iPhone lover in your life.
The iPhone is known for its fantastic camera, allowing users to snap high-quality shots on the go. But what to do with all of these photos once you’ve captured them? The Fujifilm Instax Mini Link iPhone Printer is a compact, portable printer that pairs with an iPhone via Bluetooth to print off beautiful photographs from the images captured by the phone’s camera. With the option to add filters and frames to your photos and a fast printing speed of just 12 seconds, it’s like having the best of both worlds in a crossover between a retro Polaroid camera and a modern smartphone.
Sometimes your phone needs a power top-up and you need it fast. That’s where this tiny charger comes in — it can take your phone from 0% battery charge to 50% charge in just 30 minutes. It’s small enough to fit in a pocket or bag, and you can use it to quickly charge other devices like smartwatches or earbuds as well. With 20W of output, you can charge your iPhone up to three times faster than using the original 5W charger.
The essential iPhone accessory, Apple AirPods have taken the world by storm. True wireless earbuds with no fiddly cables to get in your way, they provide solid sound when listening to music, access to Siri with a double-tap, and a long battery life of up to 24 hours. The latest model has a new H1 chip, which makes connecting to iPhone or other Apple devices a cinch, and you can tap on the body of the bud to play or skip music tracks. These are one item no iPhone fan should be without.
For iPhone users who love to snap selfies, there’s no more flattering way to light your face than to use a ring light. The secret of the beautiful selfies taken by influencers and celebrities is good lighting, and this compact accessory will allow you to boost your selfie game at home or when out and about. The ring shape gives soft illumination to your face without harsh contrast, and the rechargeable format with varying brightness levels means you can adjust the lighting for any scenario to take a beautiful image.
There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the day and realizing your phone battery is about to die. That’s why tech enthusiasts love to carry a portable power bank so they can charge their essential devices on the go. Anker is a well-known and rock-solid brand for power banks and chargers, and this model is lightweight and reasonably compact but also offers an incredible amount of freedom, charging an iPhone 8 nearly seven times from a single charge.
This year we’ve all got serious and cleanliness and sanitization, and your phone is one item that can easily pick up germs of all kinds. To keep your phone clean and sanitized, this portable case uses UV light to bathe your phone and kill 99% of bacteria and germs. It fits iPhones of all sizes, even the large iPhone 11 Pro Max, and you can also use it to clean other small items like keys, glasses, or credit cards.
A Fitbit is the ideal accessory for the iPhone lover who wants to be active and to measure their progress over time. It’s a comfortable, low-profile device that’s easy to wear as a watch, and its built-in GPS allows you to track your walks, runs, cycle rides, and more. There’s heart rate tracking to see how hard you’re pushing your body, and to estimate how many calories you’re burning. If you’re new to working out, then starting off with the aim to get in 10,000 steps a day is a great way to become more active and to have fun pushing yourself to reach your goals every day.
There’s a reason that PopSockets are beloved by teenagers, and it’s because they make it easy to hold on to your phone when you’re using it to scroll, to take photos, or to show to someone else. iPhones are beautiful pieces of technology, but they can be slippery to hold and there are few worse feelings than dropping your expensive phone on the ground. A grip like a PopSocket sticks to the back of the phone and gives your something to hold on to to keep it in your hand and not falling to the floor.
We already mentioned the classic AirPods, but if you fancy splurging a bit more, you can opt for the AirPods Pro. These headphones sound terrific with their active noise cancellation to block out unwanted sounds and adaptive EQ, which tweaks the music you listen to to the shape of your ear to sound as good as possible. They have the features of the previous AirPods, too, like Siri integrations and the ability to tap to change music tracks, and they come with a wireless charging case that lasts for a total of over 24 hours of battery life.
One downside to beautiful modern phone screens is that they are absolute magnets for fingerprints. Taking a couple of minutes a day to clean your phone screen will make using and viewing your phone so much more pleasant, and this kit allows you to do just that. The set of one bottle of cleaning fluid and two cloths is the perfect thing to keep in a desk draw and use to polish up your screen back to its original shine, and the cleaning fluid is safe to use and free from alcohol and ammonia.
The Apple Watch is the perfect companion for the iPhone, allowing you to glance at your wrist and see notifications or even take calls and reply to texts. The watch also performs some of the functions of a Fitbit, measuring health indicators like blood oxygen and heart rhythm. It tracks your daily activity so you can see how much walking, running, cycling, and swimming you are getting in each day, as well as other exercise activities. And you can use it for Apple Pay as well.
If you have beautiful pieces of technology like an iPhone and an Apple Watch, then why not put them on display? This stand holds any size of iPhone and most smartwatches and keeps them in easy reach while looking good. It’s the ideal desktop accessory for keeping your favorite electronics in one place and looking good.
