A Fitbit is the ideal accessory for the iPhone lover who wants to be active and measure their athletic progress over time. It’s a comfortable, low-profile device that’s as 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 aiming at 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.

PopSockets make it easy to hold on to your phone when you’re using it to scroll, take photos, or show your screen to others. While iPhones are beautiful tech, they also can be slippery to hold. PopSocket grips stick to the back of the phone and give you something to hold on to to keep it in your hand rather than slipping through your fingers. The PopGrip features a swappable top so you can switch out your PopTop for another design or remove it completely for wireless charging. Its secure grip lets you text with one hand, snap photos, and watch videos hands-free.

New Apple AirPods Pro

We already mentioned the more classic AirPods, but if you fancy splurging a bit more, you can opt for a more advanced version of Apple’s AirPods Pro. These headphones sound terrific with active noise cancellation to block out unwanted sounds and adaptive EQ, which tweaks your music and fits the shape of your ear, coupled with immersive spatial audio and dynamic head tracking. The force sensor lets you control your audio or answer calls. Plus, they are sweat- and water-resistant. They have features in common with the previous AirPods, too, like Siri integration and the ability to tap to change music tracks, and they come with a MagSafe 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 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 item to keep on your desk and use to polish up your screen back to its original shine. 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, weather, calendar items, alterts, or even take calls and reply to texts. The watch performs some of the fitness 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 active pursuits. And you can use it for Apple Pay as well.

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar -- $30, was $40

What could be more seasonal than a Star Wars-themed advent calendar? This calendar contains a mini Lego figure for all 24 days of Christmas, including six Lego minifigures, six Lego figures including the utterly delightful Darth Vader in a Christmas sweater, and 12 mini Lego build toys like a teeny-tiny Millennium Falcon and an adorably miniature X-wing. It's suitable for kids, but frankly, plenty of adults would be delighted by a little Lego toy for each December morning as well.

There’s no shortage of iPhone 12 case deals this Prime Day
apple iphone 12 news iphone12 7

Amazon's big day has arrived, and the Prime Day deals are flying out left and right. But apparently no-one told Apple, because the Cupertino, California giant has decided to steal Amazon's thunder by announcing the highly anticipated iPhone 12 range. But never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, Amazon already has a huge range of iPhone 12 cases ready to buy, today on Prime Day. So if you can't get enough of the iPhone 12, buy your case today, and while you're at it, check out the best Prime Day Apple deals too.

Of course, when you're buying a case, the question is always "which one?" There's a large number of case manufacturers out there, and even more styles of cases to boot. Should you buy a clear gel case, a stylish leather wallet folio, or a big and bulky rugged cover? Each choice has its own advantages and disadvantages, and your choice of case should reflect what you need from your case and how you're going to use your phone. Will your phone spend most of its time in your pocket or at home, and only needs rudimentary protection? A good clear case is always a solid choice, especially if you pick one with reinforced corners and perhaps a nice looking design. If you're a constant traveler, then the extra space afforded by a wallet case's card slots can come in useful for travel tickets and spare cash. Or if you're constantly exploring, or simply clumsy, then the extra protection afforded by a bigger, protective case may be a good fit for you.
