MoKo Cell Phone Stand

This inexpensive stand from MoKo is just a half-inch thick and folds up to just 3 by 3 inches, making it the perfect stand to take with you on the go and use with your iPhone. You can easily toss it in a bag or even fit it in a pocket.

It'll definitely come in handy on an airplane, because it's small enough to fit on a tray. It may not be the prettiest stand because it's just made of plastic, but it's sturdy, small, and affordable. It comes in seven bright colors.

Anker PowerWave Wireless Charger

Anker's latest PowerWave fast wireless charger is a convenient and easy to use wireless charger that uses the Apple-specific 7.5W power output to support the latest iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X smartphones. The hardware features a built-in cooling fan and a discreet charging indicator.

Anker ships the PowerWave charger with a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0-compatible wall adapter, too. Although we wish the accessory used a USB-C connector instead of a microUSB, it's still one of the most powerful and fastest wireless chargers available today.

Beats BeatsX Earphones



Apple's BeatsX earphones deliver a secure fit, impressive sound quality, and up to 8 hours of battery life. There are six colors to pick from: black, white, blue, gray, matte gold, and matte silver. The last two colors are a perfect match for Apple's iPhone 8 lineup.

The earbuds' built-in W1 chip ensures that the headset can pair seamlessly with your iOS and macOS devices. When not in use, the BeatsX Earphones easily fold into a tiny pouch, so they're easy to carry around, regardless of the occasion.

iPhone X Leather Folio



We're obsessed with this new berry-colored folio case from Apple. It's made of European leather, it looks luxurious, and it keeps your iPhone X scratch-free because it features a soft microfiber lining. When you open the case's flap, your iPhone X will wake up, and it goes back to sleep after you close it. The case is thin enough to work with wireless chargers, and it has a few slots for your cards and cash. If red isn't your thing, it also comes in black, blue, and taupe.

iPhone 8 Plus / 7 Plus Leather Case



Apple's own leather case provides an impeccable fit for the new iPhone 8 Plus. Not to mention, it'll safeguard its fragile glass back and protect it from scratches, scuffs, and dents. The case is thin, light, and feels great. Best of all, you don't have to remove the case to wirelessly charge your new iPhone 8 Plus. Apple offers a wide selection of new colors, which makes the accessory an easy pick for its price range.

iPhone 8 / 7 Silicone Case



Chances are, if you picked the iPhone 8 over the iPhone X, you like saving money. Apple's new silicone case isn't as pricey as its leather offering, but it'll keep your new device scratch- and dent-free. It's comfortable to hold, and it makes your iPhone 8 much easier to grip. Because the iPhone 8 is water-resistant, silicone is a great material to get wet and wipe clean. Apple just launched a whole new set of colors for its cases, so you have seven to pick from!

Anker PowerLine II

from $11.99


Like the original PowerLine cable, this one features durable kevlar fiber construction that's able to support more than 175 pounds. The biggest difference in the PowerLine II cable and its predecessor is that this one includes a lifetime warranty. It comes in black, blue, red, and white colors in four different lengths — 1 foot, 3 feet, 6 feet, and 10 feet.

Apple Lightning to 3.5-Millimeter Headphone Jack Adapter



Even though this dongle is already included in the retail package of your new iPhone, there's a high likelihood you'll lose it at some point because of how small it is. Be prepared, and grab a spare one in case such misfortune comes your way.

from $129.00

Apple's AppleCare+ protection program is a worthy investment for your iPhone. Depending on what model phone you get, it costs between $129 and $199 to enroll into the extended warranty program. You get two years of additional coverage for manufacturing defects or battery life issues, plus two incidents of accidental damage coverage.

It costs $29 to replace a broken screen, or $99 for other damage. Outside of the warranty program, customers have to pay $228 for a replacement iPhone X screen or $149 for an iPhone 8 screen. We think AppleCare+ is worth the additional cost to protect your investment.

iPhone Lightning Dock



The official Lightning Dock from Apple is one of the few docks that lets you listen to music while your iPhone is charging. That's all thanks to this dock's built-in 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, which Apple's new iPhones no longer have.

The dock is made from aluminum, and it comes in a new gold color that'll perfectly match your iPhone. There are black, silver, rose gold, and space gray options, too! The dock lets you sync your iPhone if you have it plugged into a computer, but despite its high price, it doesn't include a Lightning cable.

Apple USB-C to Lightning Cable

If you want to directly connect your iPhone or iPad to a laptop that's equipped with USB-C ports, the only way to do so is with this cable from Apple. Currently, there are no MFi-certified Lightning-to-USB-C cables. This cable helps you recharge your iPhone XiPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus' battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes.

We recommend using it with Anker's PowerPort II wall charger we mentioned previously for the fastest speeds. Apple sells 1-meter and 2-meter variants of this cable, and it only comes in white.
