Because having a top ten countdown is so nineties now.
All the cool kids rock an iPhone these days. Many a psychologist would agree that handing the latest iPhone to a mentally deprived teenager will make him or her snap out of it. Just give the kid what he wants. Apple revolutionized the tech industry. The way their graph is heading, they might as well drive the anti-depressant manufacturers out of the market too.
But there is an upper echelon in the bourgeoisie too. Who has the best of the best of the best of the add-ons? Many would ignore it but having the right tools can polish the already powerful handsets. Bring the right combination and you can complement the whole package pretty nicely. Let’s get nerdy and talk about the specifications, the aesthetics (where necessary) and justify how these seemingly trivial odds and ends make it to the list.
Pelican Marine Case
One of the most important things you should do after buying your new iPhone is to protect it with one of the best iPhone 7 cases. Phone protection does not necessarily mean your phone has to be ugly, as discussed in the article above. It could mean that your iPhone is waterproof though. Scoring a protection rating of IP68 this could mean your iPhone could handle a beating. Not that one must put that claim to the test. IP or Ingress Protection are simply ratings which identify how much beating a specific coating can take. The protective casing under question can withstand a depth of around 6.6 feet for about an hour. Not only that, this case makes the phone sealed up nicely without compromising the touch capabilities. This case is a must have for all iPhone users, even those who don’t want to use their phones under water.
Okay. This one was pretty obvious. You buy a phone. You get a pair of head phones to go with them. All the vendors in the market give you a pair with almost any phone you buy. What makes the AirPods a must have? Right off the bat is the familiar white color that has become so “Apple-esque.” The pearl white color is now almost synonymous with Apple now. Apple boasts its ability to seamlessly bind together all products into a family. The AirPods are no different. The experience has never been better. With the latest iPhone armed with even more audio improvements, these nifty little head phones provide the most satisfying sounds. Also double tapping them will wake up Siri, the now famous assistant featuring in (almost) all Apple products. Some genius fitted a few sensors somewhere in there and now the AirPods know when you talk or even when you’re listening to someone else. Also they have made them totally wireless and now push them in your pocket and all your problems are untangled. Yeah, with all the pun intended.
A handy tool to have. The TyltFlyp has a micro-USB port on top of which sits a Lightning connector. The multi ports allow versatility when it comes to interaction with Android hardware. Not just that, this cable allows one to connect their iPhone to other devices such as tablets, wireless headphones among others.The cable is around 40 inches in length and comes in more than one color. This means the added length can double as a garroting wire when need be.
Everyone is into gaming these days. Even the girls. Some might not know why all men have a FIFA night every weekend. Those who do, are the ones waiting for and keeping watch. Apple has always had the upper hand when it came to apps (yeah and games too!); only the best apps are available at the Apple appstore and that too way before they launch on android or any other platform for that matter. Not arguing to the fact that iOS is pretty powerful and can handle many games which test the upper limits of iPhones. The Gamevice Controller attaches itself to the iPhone and gives the real feel of a true hand held gaming experience. Weighing in just at 150 grams this does not even make it feel like a chore. Truly making gaming on the iPhone the way it is meant to be played. Of course, button lay out is at par with all the other consoles out there in the market. There are both left and right bumpers. A D-pad and the standard ABXY combination of action buttons. Apple may have made a jab at the Sony Play Station by adding the L and R shoulder buttons. Wanting to play all night will not be an issue now because there is a pass through slot to the side which gives access to the charging port making it a truly nonstop gaming experience for those who are really willingly to go that way.
Apple Lightning Dock
Apple boasts seamless connectivity throughout all of its products. The Apple Lightning Dock is no different. While connected your iPhone will stay in an upright position. Even if the device is in a protective casing, the lightning dock will hold it in case provided the casing or back cover has been designed by apple. You can still connect a 3.5 mm jack in to the dock if you wish to play media while charging. There is no rocket science involved in using this dock, simply connect it to a power outlet with the Apple USB Power Adapter provided with the iPhone. The dock has been designed in a way that the phone can be unlocked with the Touch ID without having to dis connect it from the dock. Also, all Lightning cables are supported as well. Available in a variety of classic Apple colors such as space gray, rose gold and more.
Mophie Juice Pack
No this is not a new drug on the market. This is where the upper stratum of the cool kids start. Exclusive only to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Mophie Juice Pack boasts a monstrous rechargeable 2,525 mAh battery. Plugging in the charger sounds like ancient history now. Back when Harambe used to be a thing. Simply place your iPhone on the charging pad and the magic begins. At maximum capacity this product will provide an additional 27 hours of talk time. After the Note 7 got banned from flights, the guys at Mophie have triple tested the juice pack to make it absolutely safe for its users. Since the iPhones have grown smarter, it is only fair that the battery pack matches this. Only when the iPhone has finished charging will the battery pack start charging itself. Equipped with a magnetic mount it just needs a flat surface. Even in a vehicle it ensures the phone stays on the juice pack and keeps charging. Highly recommended for those who intend to show off their class with their fancy gadgets.
Techlink Recharge 12000
Once fully charged this battery pack holds 12000 mAh. That means multiple recharges for your phone. Housing a neat Lightning port and a micro-USB port it can accommodate non-Apple devices too. A carrying pouch holds the cables in place when not needed. Of course, that amount of juice means the battery pack has to be a little more on the bulky side. But that’s quite alright, if need be, you can use it as a brick to smash peoples’ faces in. Two birds, one battery pack.
Apple Watch Series 2
There is no argument here. The Apple Watch 2 makes it to the top of the list without any opposition. Of course, the aficionados would still prefer the Rolex. This does not however, in any way undermine the capabilities of the Apple Watch. In terms of aesthetics, the designers at Apple went all out and now there is literally something for everyone. The sheer beauty of the Watch is that the designs available cater to all a user could demand. From the Hermes to the sports version of the watch, all designs offer the same superior utility of smart watches. This device is one heck of a health tool. Now monitor all the vitals on the go. No need to open up your phone again and again. Water resistant up to fifty meters, it is by far one of the sturdiest pieces of smart watches out there. Plus, the iPhone has been streamlined to show notifications to fit in to the tiny display of the Watch. Even if a single message or call is incoming, the Watch has been designed to give your wrist a slight tap. There is seemingly no down side to this accessory. This single piece provides more utility than all the others in the list. A must have for all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users in order to experience the complete Apple experience.
That’s all, folks!
Nope. Not at all. There still a plethora of other iPhone accessories that we haven’t discussed here. So go out there, go crazy and fill your gadget inventory. Just… don’t burn a hole in your dad’s credit card.
