There is no denying that smartphones come with enough features to keep us all satisfied, but what if you still want more? Well, there is an entire industry dedicated to satisfying that need. Accessories of all kinds are available for your phone, with constant innovation designed to solve problems you didn’t even know you had.
In this guide, we will take you through our top six picks for accessories that you should try at least once. Let’s get into it!
1. A Safety Cover
Owning a cover for your phone is a wise idea for two key reasons:
- Provides your (expensive) device with heightened protection
- Adds some extra personality to your phone
There is a huge variety of iPhone covers available now, so there’s really no valid excuse for why your phone is still bare. The right cover could save your device from certain death when you drop it for the millionth time.
It is also a great way to show some extra personality. What’s not to love?
2. Portable Charger
At this point, there are very few of us that are capable of going anywhere without our phones. Rightly or wrongly, they have effectively become another limb.
With that in mind, our collective worst nightmare is being in public and having your phone die without any warning. Apart from the numerous low-battery warnings, but who pays attention to those? Owning a portable charger just makes sense and can really help you out in a pinch.
3. Wireless Earbuds
The days of wires are slowly leaving us, and thank goodness.
No longer do you have to reach into your pocket just to find your earphones have, somehow, tied themselves together in an unbreakable knot. Save yourself the stress!
Wireless earbuds aren’t as expensive as they once were, and there are multiple styles available to suit whatever device you own.
4. A Tracker Keyring
Losing your keys is a fact of life. Try as we may, our car keys, house keys, whatever-keys love to hide from us at all times.
Luckily, technology has an answer for that. A tracker keyring simply attaches to your keys and then can be tracked via an app on your phone. We can’t promise you will never lose your keys again (you absolutely will) but at least they won’t stay lost for long.
5. An Extended USB Cable
We are two decades into the 21st century now. No one should have to contort themselves while charging their phone because the cord is too short.
You can get cords as long as six-foot now, so why bother using the tiny thing that came with the original packaging? Treat yourself!
Charging your phone doesn’t have to be an exercise in gymnastics.
Detachable Lens Enhancers
Cameras are now a natural component of any smartphone.
It feels alien that once upon a time, cameras were so unusual in phones that they were specifically referred to as ‘camera-phones’.
Beyoncé even wrote a song about them (looking at you, Video Phone). These days, not only are cameras expected in phones, but they are also capable of taking some pretty amazing photos.
If you consider yourself somewhat of a photographer with your phone, then a detachable lens enhancer is the perfect accessory for you. They can take your skills to a whole new level, and many of them just clip right onto the top of your phone!
Try Them For Yourself!
There are numerous ways to get more out of your phone than the features it came with. Staying up to date with the latest gadgets can make a big difference to how you use your device, so try them for yourself!
