Apples of your eye: great peripherals for your iPhone

So you’ve got yourself a new iPhone 6s (or its bigger cousin the 6s Plus): top of the line, cream of the crop. It’s already apparent what your sleek new toy does better than the competition: it’s got an amazing camera, a gorgeous screen bursting with pixels, and the ultra-convenient Touch ID, to name a few. Plus, it comes in Rose Gold. Rose Gold.

But there’s something else that makes the iPhone series so appealing: its peripherals. Unlike its rivals, the standardisation of Apple’s designs makes it that much easier to design for. For instance, finding a case for an iPhone is orders of magnitude easier than finding one for, say, a ZTE or Alcatel phone.

So rejoice, because the Apple renaissance is still going strong. Celebrate with one – or more – of the best accessories available to you.

Jaybird Freedom

With the iPhone 7 purportedly doing away with the aging 3.5mm audio jack, your loyal Apple earbuds are going to have to bite the dust. You’ll have to get new ones, either with a Lightning connection, or wireless – but who says great sound can’t come from wireless earphones?

Enter the Freedom, by renowned sport earphone maker Jaybird. Shaking up the wireless earphone market with the Bluebuds X in 2013 and later the X2 in 2015, Jaybird has returned once more with the new king of sports earphones. The Freedom boasts even longer battery life than its predecessors, and an all-new metal construction for enhanced durability.

OlloClip 4-in-1 Lens

Apple has always been king when it comes to smartphone photography. With assistance from their proprietary “Focus Pixels” autofocus technology and the ability to shoot slow-motion 120fps footage at 1080p, the iPhone 6 and 6s cameras seem like they can do it all.

But if you’re looking for that extra edge to your photography, you’re going to want an attachable lens. While there are many out there, ranging from the legendary Zeiss ExoLens to the Moment Wide Lens, the one with the most bang for your buck by far is the OlloClip 4-in-1. As a kit coming with a fisheye lens, a macro lens, and a pair of 10x and 15x macro lenses, OlloClip gives you a lens for every situation.

Anker iPhone 6/6s Battery Case

Pokemon GO is coming. We all know it, in spite of irate forum letters and sternly-worded addresses from ministers. What we also know is that Pokemon GO is an immense battery hog that drains energy faster than a hungry Electabuzz. Compounding the problem is the fact that nestled within the svelte aluminium body of the iPhone 6s is a relatively small battery of just 1,715mAh.

The simple answer? Get a battery case. If you’re not keen on lugging around the bulk of a powerbank, the Anker battery case provides the ideal balance between power and form, making your iPhone 6s just a scant 5.8mm thicker for a vast increase of 2,850mAh – more than doubling your total capacity.

Elago M2 Stand

It would be a crime to not utilise that gorgeous screen to its full potential. With its incredible speaker quality, the iPhone 6s is basically begging to have movies watched on it. But holding it up can get tiresome after a while, and that’s where the Elago M2 stand comes in.

Simple and minimalistic, the Elago M2 is padded to prevent your phone from being scratched, and features an opening in the stand so you can charge your phone while it’s in use. Elago claims the stand will accommodate any iPhone, whether in portrait or in landscape mode. The best part? It’s only $19.
