Top 10 iPhone 6 accessories for Christmas

The best iPhone add-ons for the Apple fanboy or girl in your life.

By Jimmy Nicholls

Apple fanboys and their families have plenty to choose from in terms of gifts this Christmas, with a range of practical and stylish accessories for the iPhone 6 and its bigger brother the iPhone 6 Plus. With so much choice we have rounded up some of the best examples, which should give you plenty to think about as you plan your festive shopping.

1. SAMAR® iPhone 6 Crystal Clear Screen Protectors

Smartphone screens are liable to all sorts of dents and scratches as they rattle around in your pocket or handbag. This pack of six screen protectors is a cheap but effective way of defending your new baby against the knocks everyday life is liable to bring.

2. IBRA® Windshield Car Mount Holder

As many use their iPhone as a GPS, this gadget will help keep your hands free for driving while leaving the phone in plain sight. A mix of dials allows you to twist the mount in any direction you prefer, though the suction cup only lets you stick the device to the window, and not the dashboard.

3. VicTsing Lens 4-in-1 Kit For iPhone 6

Those unsatisfied with the iPhone lens will be glad to find this series of clip-on extensions that expand the capabilities of the smartphone. Included in this pack is a fish eye lens, a wide lens and a telephoto lens, and a wide lens, with separately packaged versions coming in a range of colours.

4. IDACA Apple iPhone 6 Armband Case

This running accessory allows you to keep your smartphone safe during the rigours of exercise. The mobile slips neatly into the back of the product, leaving you access to your headphone socket so you can pump tunes while you pump iron.

5. KitSound XDOCK2

Part alarm clock, part stereo and part iPhone dock, the XDOCK2 charges your phone at night before using it to wake you up in the morning. The device is as sleek and refined as they come, and they have also made the snooze button extra large so you can easily fumble for it during the morning haze.

6. SDTEK White Dual Twin USB Car Charger

Those wishing to charge their iPhones while on the move can make use of this simple device, which features two USB ports for multiple device charging. It is also compatible with any device that can re-energise through USB, so you can use it with Android products too.

7. Ringke SLIM iPhone 6 Case

While screen protectors are useful, they really do not provide the sort of protection a hard case can match. For just a few more pounds you can ruggedise your iPhone against the elements and your own ineptitude – though sadly the case is not waterproof.

8. Anker Astro E4 External Battery

A common complaint from modern smartphone users is that iPhones and Androids do not have enough juice to survive a day of use. If you are away from a plug socket regularly you can thankfully buy this external battery, which speedily reinvigorates phones as many as seven times.

9. Boriyuan Wireless Detachable Slide Bluetooth Keyboard For Apple iPhone6

This Bluetooth enabled keyboard fits onto the back of your iPhone, allowing you to bypass the fiddly pop-up keyboard on-screen. The gadget is thin enough to not add too much bulk to your mobile, and is even backlit for use in the dark.

10. Terrapin Apple iPhone 6 Real Leather Flip Wallet Case

Though most leather iPhone cases can set you back a lot of money, this product comes in at less than £20, and comes in a range of colours and patterns. The design also features a few slots for your credit cards, as well as a compartment for your bank notes.
