Apple paved way for the future of iPhones with the iPhone X. This came with an aggressive design and a, multitude of new feature, most which were not present in any iPhone before. These new features came in handy but some demand accessories for you to fully harness their power. This iPhone will set you back a whopping $1,000.
We took it to Amazon to recommend a couple of awesome accessories that can elevate your iLife specifically when using the iPhone X. Let us dive in.
Cases, Protective Glasses and Skins
- iPhone X Silicon Case
This device is entirely made out of glass and a few metal bands to enable wireless charging. Therefore, in case it drops, you will definitely feel your heart shutter to pieces as well; luckily, there are Cases Available that can pretty much absorb the shock from nasty drops.
The Silicon Cases are available on the Apple Website in a range of colors, materials and designs. There are leather, hard plastic and Kevlar cases.

More in the Case spectrum, we have the Wallet Cases. These pack some nice protection but also can carry your credit cards and cash. The cases came with textured sides to give extra grip. The case also features protective Air Pocket corners and a free screen protector film for only $17.66 on Amazon
- The Fooing iPhone X Screen Protector
The Screen protector comes with a 9H harness tempered glass to protect your iPhone X from random scratches and accidental drops. It also comes packed with an oleophobic coating that prevents excessive fingerprinting and oil stains making the film easy to clean. It is surprisingly thin coming in at 0.33 inches of thickness that should not come in the way of the device’s touch sensitivity. The Fooing screen protector also comes with an anti-shatter film that goes ahead to make sure those pieces of the tempered glass stick together in a rare scenario when it breaks.
- dbrand iPhone X Skin
Now, we cannot talk about Screen protectors and Cases without mentioning skins. Dbrand is arguably the biggest name in the skin business and we cannot fail to add it to this list. Dbrand has authentic 3M vinyl skins that can be customized in a wide range of textures and colors. This customization can also be extended to the camera housing where you can either opt for a uniform look or have some contrast for the two sections. You can choose from carbon fiber, marble, concrete, metal, wood, bamboo and leather in the texture department then choose from black, white, gold, yellow, orange and so much more from the color spectrum.

- SHARKSBox iPhone X Front and Back Screen Protector
As mentioned earlier, the iPhone X is largely covered by glass. Therefore, there are people also making screen protectors covering the back. I know that sounds weird but it actually a thing. This product is tailored for people who love to show off their devices and not use cases while at it. The SHARKSBox iPhone X Tempered Glass Screen Protector covers both sides of your phone with fortified glass. It features a hydrophobic and oleophobic coating that protects your iPhone X from sweat and oil residue from fingerprints.
Charging Docks and Battery Accessories for the iPhone X
- iPhone Lightning Dock
This original Apple accessory can pretty much charge and sync any iPhone that has a lighting connector. The impressive part to this is that you can actually connect powered speakers or any standard headphones to the dock with a 3.5 mm audio jack to listen to music while the phone is syncing or charging.

This power brick can juice up a MacBook, Nintendo Switch and other phones in a time lapse of just minutes.

The AirPods connect automatically to tour iPhone, Apple Watch and MacBook just as soon as you take them out of the case all thanks to the W1 chip. With the use of optical sensors and a motion accelerometer, they detect when they are in your ears to start playing music and when you put them out, they immediately pause.

Lightning Earphones / Headphones for iPhone X
- Audeze Sine
If you are one of those who feel that wireless headphones do not provide the same quality as wired ones, the Audeze Sine is something you should definitely try out. They come in two different versions, so make sure that you choose the one that comes with a Lightning cable. The device uses the “planar magnetic technology” that produces deeper bass and better transients than most other headphones while reducing distortion significantly. They also come with a built-in DAC, while an amplifier is built right into the cable to let you bypass your iPhone’s DAC and use the superior headphone DAC instead. The headphones are engineered in California and is designed by BMW’s i8 team.

If the Audeze Sine is too rich for your taste, you can always fall back to the Philips Fidelio M2L/27. The audio quality is pleasantly surprising for a Lightning-compliant device at its price range.

- Apple Watch Series 3
Announced alongside the iPhone X was the third-generation Apple Watch which got lost amidst the entire buzz created by the iPhone X. Nevertheless, it is still a great device nonetheless; especially if you are deeply entwined with the Apple eco-system. The device carries on with the look and feel of its predecessor, but comes with one killer feature that many believe will aid its adoption massively: LTE. That is right; the latest smartwatch from Apple comes with an embedded LTE antenna which allows you to make calls directly by tapping a button on the top-left corner of the watch face. In terms of hardware, the Apple Watch 3 also comes with GPS, Altimeter, accelerometer, gyroscope, and heart rate sensor and activity tracker.

- SanDisk iXpand 64GB
The SanDisk iXpand is the one accessory that you need more than anything else to pair with your iPhone X (or any other iPhone for that matter). Why waste money on buying expensive high-storage versions when you can just use one of these to expand storage on your i-devices, especially, since most of the storage is going to be occupied by media files anyway. The devices are compliant with the USB 3.0 standard and, come with file protection software that allows users to set passwords on their private files, preventing unauthorized access. The SanDisk iXpand flash drives are obviously plug and play, allowing you to transfer all your music, movies and photographs from your iPhone to your computer without having to go through unnecessary drama. You can also listen to music or watch videos directly from the drive itself with no need to transfer them to your phone. The device is available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB versions but we believe that the 64GB model offers the best value proposition right now.

- Nomad Battery Cable
The Nomad Battery Cable is probably one of those gadgets you never knew how much you needed. It is true, you can always use a power bank, but the Nomad Battery Cable is a more convenient approach to portable charging. This cable is a pass-through charging cable, which means it works as your usual lightning cable but it also doubles up as a power bank. Therefore, you can use it to charge your iPhone X through the charging brick or without it. The cable has a high capacity of 2350mAh and the only charging cable you will ever need for your iPhone X.

- ZJTL Lightning to 3.5mm Adapter
Apple happens to provide a 3.5mm Lightning adapter with its retail iPhone units, the ZJTL version of the device is ideal if you happen to lose the original Apple device or need multiple such units for some reason. The device works as advertised and lets you connect your 3.5 mm headphones with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and, should remain compatible with the latest iPhone trio as well. They also cost just $8.88, which is significantly lower than Apple’s own adapter, making them an easy recommendation for iPhone X owners.
