HooToo Flash Drive ($40)

HooToo Flash Drive

Apple charges a premium for storage space, so it’s understandable that a lot of people save money when they’re buying an iPhone or iPad by opting for limited storage. The problem is that 16GB isn’t really enough for a modern smartphone. This handy, compact flash drive can potentially help out. It has a Lightning connector at one end and a USB 3.0 port at the other. In the middle, there’s 32GB of storage for you to fill with photos, movies, or other files. It’s easy to slip into a pocket or bag, it transfers files quickly via a handy app, and it offers an alternative backup method that doesn’t require a cable. It is also MFi-certified.


DJI Mavic Air ($800)

If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the perfect drone, it looks like the wait may be over. The DJI Mavic Air is a compact drone that’s easily controlled from your iPhone. It’s compact, has a range of nearly 2.5 miles, and features a stunning 4K camera. You can check out our full review to learn all the details, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better drone for the money.

iOttie iON Wireless Fast Charging Pad Plus ($55)

iOttie Wireless Fast Charging Pad Plus

The iOttie iOn Wireless Fast Charging Pad Plus is a stylish and compact charging pad that works great with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. It provides up to 10W of power output (though the iPhone currently maxes out at 7.5W) to provide a quick charge. The fabric-wrapped pad comes in three distinct colors with a matching charging cable. It’s the perfect size for a wireless charger and even features a rubber placement ring to ensure your iPhone stays safely on the pad.


Cardly (8.99)

Even though its definitely low-tech, Cardly is one of our favorite iPhone accessories. Created by two Northwestern University students, Cardly is a small adhesive pocket that attaches to the back of your iPhone. It allows you to easily store you identification, credit cards, transit passes, and other small items, making your wallet unnecessary for quick trips. Each Cardly packet contains two adhesive pockets so you can share with a friend or keep one on hand as a backup — not that you’ll need it, though, because the adhesive on Cardly is incredibly strong.

Beoplay Wireless Earset ($300)

If you’re looking for something a little more refined than Apple’s AirPods, you may want to check out Earset by B&O Play. An designophile’s dream, Earset maintains Bang & Olufsen’s iconic design aesthetic. The all-wireless Earset features multiple points of articulation, allowing the speakers to sit just inside the ear as opposed to being crammed into the ear canal. Earset is not just comfortable though; these headphones provide extraordinary sound quality while allowing you to remain aware of ambient noise.

JBL Charge 3 ($120)

JBL Charge 3

This feature-packed Bluetooth speaker produces good-quality stereo sound. The built-in, rechargeable battery can go for 20 hours and it doubles as a 6,000mAh power bank capable of recharging your iPhone. It also works as a noise and echo-canceling speakerphone for calls. It’s finished with durable fabric in a choice of five different colors, and it’s waterproof, so there’s no need to worry about rain or spills. You can even group it with other JBL Connect-enabled speakers for a bigger sound.


CamKix Camera Lens Kit ($19)

CamKix Camera Lens Kit

You can add five different lenses to your iPhone with this reasonably priced kit. There’s a clip for attaching them to any model of iPhone, and the kit includes a telephoto lens, a circular polarized lens, a fish-eye lens, a macro lens, and a wide-angle lens. The aluminum lenses come in a padded carrying case with a carabiner to attach it to a bag or belt. This is a compact, easy, and cheap way to get a little extra versatility out of your iPhone camera.


Mpow iSnap Selfie Stick ($10)

Mpow iSnap Selfie Stick

Here’s an extendable selfie stick with a built-in Bluetooth remote control to help you capture great selfies wherever you are and whoever you’re with. It’s around 7 inches long when closed but can extend to 31.5 inches. It pairs easily and there’s a secure silicone-covered clamp to hold your iPhone. The 270-degree, adjustable head enables you to find just the right angle. There’s a simple button to take the shot and there’s a wrist strap at the end to help ensure that you don’t drop it.
