The best iPhone accessories for 2022
Belkin MagSafe Car Phone Holder
Since we often rely on our phones to get from A to B, investing in a phone holder for your car is a wise decision. This Belkin phone holder clips onto your car’s air vent so your phone can stay in a prime position while you’re driving. Thanks to the magnetic design, if you have a MagSafe-enabled iPhone, you can simply place your phone on the charger and it should stay in place. This avoids the use of delicate and unreliable clips. The device also works with MagSafe phone cases, which is a bonus.
You can use the phone holder in portrait and landscape mode, and there’s a handy cable management system that keeps your cable in an optimal charging position so you can charge your phone while you drive.
Joby GripTight ONE Tripod
As we play with zooms, photography styles and portrait modes, we often promote ourselves from amateur to professional photographers thanks to the impressive camera technology of the iPhone. If you’re looking for an iPhone camera to further your skills, this flexible tripod will definitely do the trick. The versatile tripod holds your phone in place while you take a photo, making group shots that much easier. You can also use it as a selfie stick as the legs can be used as a handle, which is ideal for vloggers and content creators. Thanks to the flexible, wrap-around feet, you can even hang your phone from a tree if you wish.
It’s worth noting that this device works with a range of smart phones, so you don’t need to be an iPhone user to experiment with your snaps.
Belkin face tracking phone holder
Looking to take your Zoom calls and workout blogs to the next level? This phone mount from Belkin uses face tracking technology to track your movements as you film yourself, so you’re always the star of the show. The bracket can rotate 360° and you can also adjust the angle.
Thanks to MagSafe technology, your iPhone 12 can simply snap on, so there’s no need for clamps and clips.
Apple AirPods Max
The setup process for pairing these headphones to your iPhone couldn’t be easier, so it’s an ideal iPhone companion. If you’re a movie buff, you’ll love the spatial audio feature that takes movie watching to a whole new level. They’re also well-designed with a knitted mesh canopy and memory foam ear cushions, making them a pleasure to wear for long periods of time.
It’s a great choice if you want to block everything out (literally thanks to the noise canceling feature) and enjoy your favorite playlist. When you want to connect to your environment, just enable transparency mode.
Razer Kishi Gamepad
This funky gadget lets you enhance your gaming experience by turning your iPhone into a gaming console. It’s designed to enhance your control while gaming with a comfortable grip and clickable thumbsticks. The device connects to your iPhone via the Lightning port and should fit most models. So if you find it hard to part with your Xbox when you leave the house, now you can have a mini game console in your pocket.
Anker PowerLine III Flow
If you’re fed up with frayed and misplaced iPhone charging cables, these brightly colored Anker cables might be an easy fix. They have a flexible and durable design to handle everyday use. Their surprisingly soft texture sets them apart from other cables, and they come with a handy strap so you can keep them neat, tidy, and tangle-free. There are many colors to choose from, including yellow, pink, green, and white.

Belkin Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charger
This Belkin 3-in-1 device lets you charge your iPhone 12, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time, so you can keep all your gadgets powered. The 15W charger uses MagSafe technology so you can simply place your phone in the cradle for a magnetic, wireless connection. It looks quite elegant and unique, and it would work well as a bedside table accessory.
Bellroy 3 Card Phone Case
Phone cases can get tired and damaged after a while, so it’s nice to give your iPhone a fresh look once in a while. This bold yellow leather design is both useful and stylish. There’s room for three cards and the magnetic closure keeps them securely in place. We like the subtlety of this design, as it keeps your valuables accessible but hidden, rather than functioning as a bulky, bulky wallet strapped to the back of your phone.
There’s also a sneaky spare SIM card slot, so you can store an extra SIM card, which is a handy feature for frequent travellers. There are many sizes to choose from, from SE to 13 Pro Max.
