2015: 'Must-have' iPhone accessories

Here are some of the tools and accessories I use to help me get the most from my iPhone. Many of these accessories have been extensively field-tested and have survived months of hard, sometimes daily, use.

I've carried an iPhone for quite a few years. The iPod touch sucked me into the ecosystem and once I made the jump to the iPhone 3GS I've stuck with the iPhone as my smartphone of choice.

And since I use my iPhone for so much, I've bought and tested many accessories for it including everything from better Lightning cables (that one Apple supplies usually lasts me less than a year) to a thermal camera that allows me to "see" heat leaking from my home.

It's quite jaw-dropping just how many accessories are available for the iPhone.

Many of these accessories have been extensively field-tested and have survived months of hard, sometimes daily, use. This is the only way I know to be able to make sure that you'll be getting a solid product.

If you have a favorite accessory or tool, feel free to mention it in the comments section below. I'm always on the lookout for new gear to try out!
