The Apple iPhone 12 Equipment Necessities Record
Upgrading to one of Apple’s new iPhone 12 models will no doubt be one of the biggest and most highly anticipated purchases for many this holiday season. With a multitude of sizes and functions, from the iPhone mini with a one-hand-friendly 5.4-inch display to the Goldilocks dimensions of the 6.1-inch models iPhone 12 and 12 Pro to the huge flagship 6.7- The iPhone 12 Pro Max is equipped with his best camera system and has a phone for almost everyone. In addition to a whole world of accessories that complement the latest and greatest Apple products. Here are a dozen of our current favorites:
iPhone leather wallet with MagSafe $ 59
The new iPhone 12 models literally have a magnetic personality. Each device has a number of magnets that can be securely attached using a variety of MagSafe accessories. That includes a single charger and one of those handy leather wallets that slap right onto the back of the phone or onto a selection of clear silicone. or MagSafe-compliant leather cases. Adding one is adding the cutest little backpack to your iPhone.
Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless ANC Smart Headphones $ 399.95
Earbuds always pale in comparison to an over-the-ear design like the stylishly executed Sennheiser Momentum 3 when it comes to sound reproduction, immersion, and the effectiveness of active noise cancellation. The flagship of the brand, the wireless headset, supports Bluetooth streaming via AAC from Apple or aptX and aptX LL support as well as a playback time of up to 17 hours. Supple and soft sheepskin leather caresses the ears to help alleviate physical fatigue (when that’s what you want to do the most of) Check out these $ 59,000 headphones. One particularly cool feature is the pop-up and power-on feature, which reduces the need for a power switch and maintains an Apple-like, clean look.
Moment Mounts for MagSafe $ 19.99- $ 49.99
We are long time users and proponents of the Moment catalog of iPhone ography cases and lenses as they are simply our favorite accessory when hiking and traveling. The latest mounts are also a great investment for anyone who is serious about mobile photography and videography / vlogging. The full range of mounts for tripods, shoes, walls and cars are designed to take advantage of Apple MagSafe and expand the accessory options. Gift or give yourself one with one of the MagSafe and Moment lens compatible cases for a sleek and lightweight setup.
Apple AirPods Pro
So we know we just mentioned earbuds fall short when it comes to active noise cancellation – and they do – but that doesn’t mean we don’t love the Airpods Pro’s effortless compatibility. Seriously, if there was one iPhone accessory we would have liked to have included with every iPhone 12, it would be the AirPods Pro (especially now that every iPhone comes without an accessory that has a Lightning-to-USB-C Cable goes out). Apple has successfully eliminated all friction issues related to wireless earbuds. This is an open and closed case that offers very balanced sound with a comfortable fit that earlier Apple designed earbuds have disappointed with. And the ANC is admittedly pretty good when you want to drown out the noise of nearby conversations, passing traffic, or similarly moderate ambient noise.
Le Cord recycled green iPhone lightning cable
Apple continues to offer a Lightning-to-USB-C cable – without a charger – for any iPhone that may induce users to charge MagSafe wirelessly. However, we still want to connect a charging cable to our laptop or desktop using a USB-A to Lightning connector. This Le Cord is the only charging and synchronization cable certified by Apple MFI with a braided textile cover made of recycled plastic for marine fishing nets. Durability has been tested on 15,000 bends without damage.
Sandmarc Prolight Kit – RGB & Bicolor
We know we are not alone when we say our iPhone has become our primary photo device. The difference between a good photo and a great photo depends not only on which shot you choose, but also on the availability of good light. This portable LED lighting set is smaller than the iPhone 12 Pro, yet it can turn flat looking photos into dimensionally interesting shots by glowing brightly and over various color temperatures from 3000 to 6500 K.
Apple HomePod mini $ 99
As much as we want to lead listeners to the most dynamic and richest audio solutions possible, not everyone can justify spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on lossy streaming audio. For most people, the HomePod mini is more than enough to enjoy a daily streaming source with 360-degree sound and a compact “Place It Anywhere” design. And since the HomePod mini was developed by Apple, it seamlessly expands the capabilities of the iPhone, expanding the capabilities of Siri and Smart Home at its core for under $ 100.
Native Union x Maison Kitsuné Wireless Powerbank $ 119.99
If you travel or commute regularly, a power bank is a great insurance policy to keep in your backpack, pocket, or purse to avoid emergencies with a 1% fee. Native Union and the Franco-Japanese electronic music record label worked together to adorn this pocket-sized wireless charging bank with enough juice to power three devices at once, and a super cute fox logo on the dark green silicone and stone finish -Texture housing emblazoned. There are also USB-A and USB-C ports that can be used to rescue anyone who needs a charge the old-fashioned way.
Spigen tempered glass screen protector $ 13
Our friends at Wirecutter have crowned this screen protector with the best glass layer for scratch resistance without compromising clarity, and for the “price of a movie ticket”. It’s also noteworthy that, unlike some other screen protectors, Spigen includes an easy-to-use application that not only ensures that the glass application is properly oriented, but also reduces the chance of bubbles forming on any size of the iPhone 12 family.
Belkin Car Vent Mount PRO with MagSafe $ 39.99
When Apple announced MagSafe, we were really excited about the premise and promise to securely connect our iPhone while riding the magic of magnets. Belkins Mount Pro was the first to claim this solution for iPhone 12 users with a mount that can work in both portrait and landscape orientation. It also includes a nifty charging cable holder on the back.
Nomad Base Station Pro $ 199.95
Apple once promised all of us “poseless wireless charging”, but unfortunately their AirPower never materialized. Fortunately, the Nomad Base Station Pro takes the baton and runs with 18 hexagonal charging points to charge up to 3 devices at the same time. This reasonable number of charging points means you’ll never have to fumble to perfectly align your iPhone and Airpods like other wireless charging solutions. This makes it our most popular iPhone 12 wireless charging solution by far.
If we need something in 2020, it will be more rest and relaxation. If you’re lucky enough to have an Apple Watch to pair with your new iPhone 12, be sure to download Endel, an app that lets you relax your body and mind with music. The app syncs this with Apple Health to create sounds that respond to the current physical and mental state of your body, and also takes into account the local weather to help calm you down to sleep.
