The chances are that you have heard of, or even own an iPhone 5. As the most popular smartphone to date, it is the smartphone of choice for many millions of customers all over the world, and Apples most advanced smartphone to date.
Because of the popularity of the device, many companies have capitalised on this. Accessories for this phone are big business, and choosing the right accessories can improve your user experience to a high degree. In this article I will look at some of the best iPhone 5 accessories out there.
There is little argument that the iPhone 5 is a stylish device and many are drawn to the design and build quality of the device. It has a reinforced glass finish which certainly looks the part. However there have been numerous cases of this glass, despite being reinforced, shattering on impact of dropped on a hard surface. A way around this is to buy a case for your iPhone. These vary in design and materials used, but one thing that they have in common is that they can protect the glass from shattering. For just a couple of pounds, you can get a rubber case which will do the job well, and many will also find that it will make the iPhone 5 more comfortable in your hand. If you are willing to spend a little more you can get a premium case which may be made out of leather or other materials. These will do the same job as a rubber case but generally will be more aesthetically pleasing. For peace of mind, a case can be a great investment given their benefits and small financial outlay.
The screen of the iPhone 5 is of course made from glass, so many users choose to use a screen protector should they drop their phone. These are generally in the form of a small plastic film which sticks to the screen, and will go virtually unnoticed. Not only will this protect the screen should the phone be dropped, but it will also protect it from scratches. This can be useful if you keep your phone in a pocket or handbag along with objects like keys which could scratch the screen. Screen protectors are very cheap and easy to replace. This way you can simply replace a damaged screen protector whenever you need to.
The iPhone 5 comes supplied with a USC charger which can be used to charge from a mains socket, or via a computer, whereby you can also sync the phone with iTunes. If you are one of the many people who use the alarm function on your White iPhone 5, you may benefit from the use of a charging dock. These work by connecting to the charger cable, but allow the phone to stand upright, allowing you to stand it on a flat surface like a bedside table. These can also be used on desks, allowing you to glance at information on the screen in order to check for the time or updates without picking up the phone, so you can carry on working.
As you can see there are many types of cool iPhone 5 accessories, each with their own individual benefits. They can generally be picked up cheaply online or from one of the mobile phone accessory shops found in most towns.
