How to really take advantage of Apple's newest smartphone
The iPhone 8 is an amazing piece of technology all by itself. But there are a couple add-ons that can make it even better. Here are our five favorites, all of which cost less than $50.
Mophie Wireless Charging Base ($40)
The iPhone 8 is the first Apple product to support Qi wireless charging. This Mophie wireless base is understated, reliable, and relatively inexpensive.
Anker Soundbuds Sport IE20 Headphones ($30)
There are lots of Bluetooth headphones out there, but we like the Sport IE20 thanks to a comfortable fit, decent sound, quality mic, and an eight-hour battery life.
Tech21 Evo Check Case ($20)
The iPhone 8 has a glass back, so it's not a bad idea to get protection. We recommend the Tech21 Evo Check, which is made from three layers of plastic that will absorb drops from up to 10 feet.
Belkin Audio + Charge Rockstar Adapter ($35)
If you have a favorite pair of 3.5mm wired headphones and don't want to stop using them, this adapter allows you to listen to music and charge your iPhone 8 at the same time.
Armpocket Ultra i-35 Armband ($40)
Think of Armpocket’s Ultra i-35 as a mini backpack for your arm, with just enough room for your 8 or 8 Plus, a key, and some cards or cash.
