The iPhone is an exciting and innovative device that offers an impressive range of multimedia functions straight out of the box. However, there are now many iPhone accessories available, both from Apple and third-party manufacturers, that make it easy to get even more from your smartphone.
While the iPhone is durable enough to withstand small shocks or short falls, a hardy and properly fitted case provides insurance against the inevitable accidents that befall phones in the course of everyday use. In particular, the back and sides of the iPhone are vulnerable to damage and benefit from a protective covering. A hardshell case is ideal for this purpose, such as the Luxe Original from iFrog, which boasts an innovative two-part locking system and a range of vibrant colours. You might also consider a silicone case, such as the Egg iPhone case, made by Case-Mate, which is moulded to help you grip your smartphone.
Investing in a strong set of speakers with a deep, crisp sound will make a huge difference to the output you get from your iPhone. At the top end of the market are speakers that connect with your iPhone over Bluetooth, allowing you to move away from the speakers and continue to enjoy music.
A good pair of wireless headphones, such as the Opera S5, provides a flexible and easy way to listen to your music on your iPhone without messy cables. They perform better than Bluetooth, and the controls offer full iPhone control.
4. Signal Booster
The signal problems of the iPhone 4 have become notorious, and marred much of the coverage of this otherwise excellent smart phone. If you find that your model is displaying weak signal or signal lapses, you might consider investing in a signal boosting device, which amplifies the signal from your mobile phone antenna, making it easier to make and maintain calls in areas of low mobile signal.
Upon receiving your iPhone, you will want to be able to use its media functions as quickly as possible. Every smartphone needs considerable power to charge, so it is worth investing in a Dock, which enables you to connect your iPhone via USB cable to charge and sync it. The official Apple iPhone Dock is a high-quality accessory that also allows you to connect your iPhone to external speakers for playing music stored on it.
