The Essential iPhone 8 Accessories You Need Now


 The Essential iPhone 8 Accessories You Need Now

The iPhone 8 is the latest release from Apple and boasts the same beautiful design, great quality, numerous features, and superb performance we’re used to from the tech giant.


While the phone itself is exciting, you’ll likely want to add a few accessories to get the most from it. Here are the top ten iPhone 8 accessories, handpicked for you by our experts.

Bluetooth Headphones
The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus don’t have an audio jack, so you should be interested in getting some quality Bluetooth headphones. There are a numerous types on the market, but we like iFrogz Impulse Duo for the smart design and reasonable price.

They’re available at a very reasonable $40.00 and boast pretty good sound. They have a handy magnetic clip system on the inline remote and are notable for their 10 hours of battery life at moderate volume. These headphones earned a 7.5 overall rating from CNET’s editors, meaning they’re definitely a good Bluetooth headphone option to get the most bang for your buck.

Wireless Charging
Thanks to Apple opting to support the wireless Qi standard for their new iPhones, there are a bunch of products out there ready for you to use.

Anker PowerPort Qi 10 offers a no frills, low-cost wireless charger which supports 10W fast charging. It has a ‘breathing’ LED to let you know it’s hard at work while your iPhone8 sits comfortably on its non-slip surface. These are very popular and often sell out quickly, but they’re worth seeking out for their price point – around $18.50.

If you are looking for a wireless charger with a few more bells and whistles, the Morphie Powerstation Wireless External Battery Charger will charge your iPhone 8 up to three times. Also, it has priority plus charging so your phone will charge before the Powerstation, and it has a USB port for charging other gadgets. All of this will only cost you about $85.69.

Fast Charging
While wireless charging is great when you’re out and about, getting juice quick is sometimes the priority. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both support this function, so you can get up to a 50% power level in 30 minutes.

To help get your phone to this point, you can opt for the Aukey plug, which comes in at $26.00. It has the 29W USD-C socket to handle fast charging and comes with an adaptor to insert two regular USB cables and charge other tech. You can’t avoid the need for the official USB-C to Lightning cable, though, and that will set you back around $33.00.

Alternately, Anker’s 30W Powerport offers a comparable fast charge for your iPhone 8 in a stylish matte black box for $27.99 on Amazon. It’ll push 55% of life into your battery in just half an hour – outperforming Aukey, even if just by a little.

Stay Protected
Keeping your new device protected against cracks and bumps is usually the first priority when you take it out of the box. Crystal C1 case from Mobile Fun does this with their low-cost, clear rubber case. It protects from shock and provides grip to prevent it slipping from your hand. And at just $10.55, it’s a steal.

Tech21 Evo Elite Active Edition Case at just under $60 offers much more protection, along with style designed to fit in at the gym (think day-glo colors and reflective surfaces). Tested to survive a 2m drop but slim enough to slip in your pocket after your workout, this case is also thin enough to wirelessly charge without removing.

Prepare for the Outdoors
Exercising with your iPhone can be tricky, so TuneBand comes to the rescue with a two-piece design that also functions as a protective silicone case. At around$21.99, you can’t go wrong for this reasonably priced peace of mind when working out.

As the winter months approach, using your iPhone 8 outside becomes ever more uncomfortable. Investing in Mujjo’s genuine leather touchscreen gloves allows you to carry on operating your iPhone outside without sacrificing comfort. At $105 they’re an investment that you’ll appreciate for years to come.

Getting the most from iPhone 8’s updated camera requires a tripod, and Kenu’s design will hold your phone securely. The built in key ring helps you take it everywhere, while the ball and socket aids positioning. A t$24.95, it’s worth investing in for those great outdoor shots.
