Best Accessories for the iPhone X
Pre-order for Apple’s iPhone X begins on October 27 and will start shipping out as early as November 3. When Apple unveiled a plethora of new, unique features for the iPhone X during its keynote event last month it noted, “Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience.”
With that in mind, any accessories for your iPhone X should become an extension of the device itself, enhancing the experience rather than hampering it. So, we’ve rounded up a list of some of the best experience-enhancers for the iPhone X that are on the market right now.
FOR YOUR PHONE...
Rokform Crystal Case
An investment in a new iPhone X is an investment in the future. Guard your investment with a case that isn’t just stylish, but functional and durable, too. The Crystal Case provides your iPhone X with all the protection you expect out of a Rokform case while maintaining a slim, lightweight design. In addition to effortlessly slipping into and out of your pocket, your Crystal Case 100% safe magnet will grip any magnetic surface. Discover new ways to use your iPhone X with Rokform's magnetic technology, from non-obtrusive GPS navigation device to recipe book in the kitchen. The Crystal Case for iPhone X is available for $49.99 on Rokform.com.
Lightning Charge Cable
Remembering to fold up lightning cables and lug them from place to place can be a hassle. While the new iPhone X comes with one Lightning to USB Cable, it’s ultra-convenient to keep some extras at your favorite weekly spots. Personally, I’m never left without a charge when I keep a lightning cable at my bedside, one in my laptop, and another ready to go in my backpack. When you use the Rokform Lightning Charge cable to sync your device, you can be assured that you are receiving the fastest possible data transfer speeds on the market. It also works great for fast charging when you use it with your Rokdock, computer or laptop, or your standard wall socket. The Lightning Charge Cable is Apple Certified for a safe charge. It’s available for $19.99 on Rokform.com.
USB-C Power Adapter
A 5W USB Power Adapter comes with your iPhone X purchase, but sometimes 5W doesn’t deliver the charge up fast enough. Apple’s 29W USB-C Power Adapter will allow you to plug your lightning into any power outlet for fast, efficient charging wherever you are. The USB-C Power Adapter is available for $29.00 on Apple.com.
WHEN YOU’RE ON THE GO...
PRIME WIRELESS High-Performance Earphones with Bluetooth
These lightweight, compact and oh-so stylish wireless earphones are the perfect alternative to Apple’s AirPods (seriously, those are meant to fall out of your ear and be lost forever). If you haven’t figured it out already, we’re big fans of magnets. When we came across the PRIME Wireless Earphones by Soul Electronics, which feature a magnetic clip design that enables the earphones to stay around your neck when you are taking a break from music, we had to put them on this list. As for sound quality, the earphones boast advanced drivers engineered for deep low bass with clear mids and highs. The earphones are available in four stylish colors and feature a built-in microphone for hands free calls and a remote for volume. PRIME Wireless Earphones are priced at $59.99 and available at soulelectronics.com.
Super Grip Vent Mount
If you drive around a lot keeping your iPhone hands-free isn’t just a safety measure, in many states it is the law. Apple’s facial recognition technology, Face ID, will work seamlessly with Siri and the Super Grip Vent Mount so that you can stay focused on the road and not on your phone’s screen. The mount is compatible with any Rokform case, but also has an adapter piece for easy use with non-Rokform cases. The Super Grip Vent Mount is included with the purchase of an iPhone X case or can be purchased separately for $19.99 on Rokform.com.
The PodPocket is designed with the Apple customer in mind; those who appreciate both form & function. The pocket is precision molded from high grade silicone to provide a secure fit for the AirPods charging case and it comes with a premium key ring and clasp so that it can be attached to a bag or keychain and the open access along the bottom allows charging while the AirPods are still in the PodPocket. A small investment to protect a larger one & the perfect Home For Your AirPods. PodPockets start at $14.95 and are available on podpockets.com.
WHEN YOU’RE OUTDOORS...
Outdoor Tech Kodiak Mini 2.0 Portable Rechargeable Power Bank
Until phones can handle a day of normal use without dying, there's the Kodiak Mini 2.0 Power Bank by Outdoor Tech. It puts extra charging power within reach—in fact, right in your pocket—in an ultra-pocketable, rugged format that hides in your hand and takes a beating better than a Hollywood stunt double. It packs a punch with 2600 mAh lithium polymer battery and is fully waterproof when the lid is closed or very water resistant when open. In the event of a real crisis, like misplacing the bag of marshmallows when it's time for S'mores, you'll also appreciate the included 5-LED flashlight with its 100-lumen High, 65-lumen Low, and flashy, "Over here guys!" Emergency Strobe modes.
A true power bank for the outdoors! The Kodiak Mini 2.0 is $24.95 and available on Rokform.com.

Outdoor Tech Buckshot 2.0 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
