Do you want to get the most out of your iPhone? Chances are, this answer is yes. Unfortunately, your purchasing is not done after you buy your iPhone. If you truly want to get the most out of your brand new device, there are a few accessories you will want to buy to go along with it. Although none of these accessories are required, depending on how you use your iPhone, you may want to consider purchasing one or more of them.
1. A Case
When people think of accessories for their iPhone, the most common thing they think of a case. There are literally thousands of different iPhone cases out there available for you to buy. However, some of them are better than others. For example, the OtterBox Defender is designed to completely protect your device from lots of threats – such as shock, water, and fall damage. (Checkout my OtterBox Review!) Some cases even feature the ability to charge your iPhone, such as the Mophie Juice Pack Case.
2. A Screen Protector
If your case does not come with a screen protector, it’s pretty important that you get one for your iPhone. Something such as the Tech Armor Screen Protector does the job great, and will prevent scratches and fingerprints from ruining the iPhone’s beautiful screen.
It’s no surprise to hear that one of the most common uses for the iPhone is for listening to music, and almost every iPhone game has sound to go along with it, so a good pair of headphones or earphones are vital. The iPhone speakers just don’t cut it, and I’m sure the people around you don’t always want to hear what’s going on while you’re using your iPhone. Personally, I’m in love with my Sennheiser HD 280s, which I use on a regular basis. However, much cheaper alternatives are available.
Along with your usb cord for plugging your iPhone into your computer, you will want additional chargers as well. A decent charger that plugs into the wall, as well as a charger you could use in your car, such as the Mediabridge.
5. Bluetooth Headset
Although not for everyone, and definitely not as common as they used to be, some people may really benefit from owning a Bluetooth headset. Something like the Plantronics M50 will allow you to answer calls wirelessly , which is a lot more convenient than pulling your phone out of your pocket to answer it and holding it, and a heck of a lot safer while doing something such as driving.
