Just like every Apple product, every new iPhone accepts only a certain set of accessories. However, this time around, the removal of 3.5mm jack has created a new space . While Apple is offering a 3.5mm dongle and a pair of Lightning EarPods in the box, there is still a lot of space to cover for iPhone 7 accessories.
With a new set of problems, come new solutions. Every year, several companies come out with their solutions for the latest Apple iPhones. The iPhone 7 accessories range includes adapters, specialized charging solutions, and all sorts of dongles. The camera change has created a demand for new cases too. Then, there is the case of new wireless headphones too. Let’s see what the third-party accessory innovators have come up with so far. Here are Best iPhone 7 Accessories to Check Out:
Apple iPhone Lightning Dock
Priced at $39, the official Apple dock sports a minimal design and comes in five metallic finishes. It allows you to charge charge and sync your iPhone at the same time, if connected to Mac. You can also use the iPhone while it is docked. And it supports other Lightning accessories, such as the Lightning to USB Cable (included with your iPhone). You can even conduct speakerphone calls with your iPhone in the dock. However, it only works with Apple case. The dock allows you to listen to music while charging your iPhone. This might not be otherwise possible due to removal of headphone jack.
Anker PowerCore+ 10050 Portable Battery Charger
Apple claims to have improved the battery life in the new iPhone 7 models but it’s still not enough. While games and background apps allow you to maximize the potential of your iPhone, they also tend to be huge battery-consumers.
The Anker Powercore+ 10050 seems like a great solution. The sleek power bank comes in durable alloy casing with a powerful 10000mAh battery. It can potentially recharge the iPhone 7 Plus almost three times, on the go. Features include PowerIQ and VoltageBoost Plus, the compact device will easily fit in your pocket. It’s priced at $29.97.
Caseology iPhone 7 Plus Parallax Case
Ironically, the beautiful design of your iPhone needs a lot of protection. The Caseology iPhone 7 Plus Parallax Case sports a stylish geometric pattern that also offers a good grip. It comes with a flexible TPU sleeve and a rigid polycarbonate bumper frame. It can keep your iPhone safe from shock damage and scratches. The trendy geometric patterns create a sense of movement. The three-dimensional molding and soft coatings create a secure, comfortable grip. The cool phone case offers nice cushioning from drops too. It’s priced at $13.99.
OMOTON iPhone 7 Plus Glass Screen Protector 2 Pack
The display is one of the most important features of any smartphone. It would be very unwise to get the expensive smartphone and overlook a new screen protector. The tempered glass screen protectors are much better options than the plastic ones.
The OMOTON iPhone 7 Plus Glass Screen Protector 2 Pack is a pack of two 9H hardness screen protectors. The easy to install Protector pack offers high transparency along with resistance from scuffs and scratches. Laser-cut dimensions provide maximum protection for the screen. High-Transparency provide you high-definition clear viewing. Hydrophobic Oleophobic screen coating protects against sweat and oil residue from fingerprints and keeps high-sensitivity touch response. It’s priced at $7.95.
4 Pack of Apple MFi-Certified Lightning Cables
Now, connectivity. With the new iPhones, Apple has completely gone with the Lightning connector. Since, the Lightning cables have yet become the universal standard, it’s better to have extra cables to charge your iPhone. This pack of Apple MFi-Certified 1m Lightning Cables will be able to power your phone and transfer data smoothly. These are priced at $11.97.
USAMS Wood and Leather Lightning Cable
Apple Lightning cables have been facing a major problem with breakage. The USAMS Wood and Leather Lightning Cable with braided leather and a wooden housing are a sturdier option, with corrosion protection. These look great too. These are priced at $8.48.
Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones
Officially announced by Apple, the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones are a great alternative to the AirPods. Beats Solo3 Wireless is ready to go when you are. They instantly set up – just power on and hold near your iPhone – and then simultaneously connect to your Apple Watch, iPad and Mac. With Class 1 Bluetooth technology, Solo3 Wireless provides the soundtrack to your life with wireless efficiency. These offer 40 hours of battery life. You’ll also get three hours of battery life with just 5 minutes of charging. Priced at $299.95
Brightech MFi Pure Lightning Earphones
The lightning earphones have become a requirement for the new iPhone 7 models. The Pure Lightning Earphones are a great choice to use without the Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter. The Brightech MFi Pure Lightning Earphones feature 24-bit DAC and amplifier, offering superior sound quality. Oxygen Free Copper cords assure low-loss signal transmission of 24-bit digital audio. The earbuds offer nice balanced sound experience. Priced at $90.
Apple Watch Series 2
Apple Watch Series 1 was good. Series 2 is better. With built-in GPS, water resistance to 50 meters, a new lightning-fast dual-core processor and a display that’s two times brighter than before, Apple Watch Series 2 is definitely one of the best iPhone 7 accessories. Full of features that help you stay active, motivated and connected, Apple Watch Series 2 is designed for all the ways you move. Available from $369.
