Ever since the iPhone 7 arrived, we said RIP to the headphone jack. As a result ever since the iPhone 7, accessories have appeared to try and make the transition easier.
But headphone adapters can be annoying to carry around and it's easy to forget them. The Anker Sound Surge Bluetooth Headphones are great for exercise or everyday listening.
They're waterproof, magnetic and last for 6 hours between charges. You can also wear them as a bracelet to make them a little easier to carry around.

If you're a proud owner of the Plus versions of the iPhone, it can be hard to use the phone with one hand. They are essentially mini iPads, and while watching videos may be great, they can be a pain to hold.
Pop pockets are great for this. They stick onto the back of your phone and you can pop them out to make them easier to hold. They also make a great iPhone stand to make watching videos a little easier.
Let's face it, the cable you get in the box with your new iPhone often doesn't last long. They're easy to snap or break, and before long you're on the hunt for a new one.
The cheap bundles you can find on eBay are usually unsafe and aren't certified by Apple. The Anker Powerline cable is strong sturdy and certified by Apple.
You can get them in a bunch of different lengths so you aren't stretching to uses your phone as it charges. It may seem like a small thing, but when your charger breaks it can be a real pain.
Getting a quality one which is strong enough to last gives you a little peace of mind.

The iPhone is a powerful machine, but we have to admit, the speakers aren't great. If you're sat on a noisy beach or throwing a house party, you want to hear your music.
That's when Bluetooth speakers come in. The JBL Charge 3 wireless speakers are perfect for hanging with friends or just enjoying some tunes.
They have a whopping 20 hours of battery life, they are waterproof, and they also double up as a power bank! What's more, they have a built-in microphone so you can answer and take calls while in use so you don't have to disconnect.
Oh, and did we mention that the sound quality is noise-canceling and echo-proof?
