AmazonBasics 6-foot braided USB A to Lightning cable

There are literally thousands of different iPhone cables out there, and most of them are better than the cable that Apple supplies with the iPhone.

However, after extensive testing, I've come to the conclusion that one of the best cables available is the AmazonBasics braided cable. It's tough and durable, and seems to last a long time, even when being mistreated.

Price: $12 | More info

SIMore adapter

If you need to switch between multiple SIM cards, then you can, a) Keep fiddling with that tiny SIM tray until one day it springs out and is lost down the air vent in your car, b) carry multiple handsets, or c) fit a SIMore adapter.

RAM Mount X-Grip

RAM Mount X-Grip

If your smartphones spend a lot of time in the car, it's vital that you have a decent in-car mount for it. I've tested a lot of different mounts and the one I keep coming back to is the RAM Mount X-Grip.

Not only does this fit a wide variety of smartphones - it's big enough to accommodate my iPhone 6S Plus in a protective case - but it can be coupled to a wide variety of different mounting devices (such as suction cups and yoke clamps), so you can use it in the car, bike, motorcycle or even a boat.

And the Anker 2-port 24 watt wall charger ticks all the boxes - it's compact, yet delivers enough power to charge a smartphone and a tablet, and comes with an 18-month warranty.

Anker PowerCore+ Mini

I use to suffer from battery life anxiety whenever I needed to use my iPhone heavily, but I've overcome that by carrying a small external battery pack with me when I'm out and about. Yes, I know that I could go through all my settings disabling everything, but why carry an iPhone around with me in the first place if it can't do anything?

If you want a small battery pack that you can pop into your pocket, then the Anker PowerCore+ mini is a great choice at only $15.

Price: $15 | More info

Anker iPhone screen protector

Anker iPhone screen protector

Since the screen takes up half the iPhone, and the screen is made of glass, and glass breaks, a screen protector can mean the difference between a broken iPhone and an iPhone that lives to fight another day.

At only 0.3mm thin, the Anker screen protector doesn't add any bulk to the iPhone, but it does offer some extra protection against scratches, chips, and breakages.

Combine this with a heavy-duty case - such as the OtterBox Commuter (also listed here) - and you have all-round protection for your fragile iPhone.

Price: $6 | More info

Anker PowerCore 10000 battery pack

Anker PowerCore 10000 battery pack

Enough power to recharge your iPhone up to three and a half times, yet small enough to slip into a pocket or handbag.

If you need a power pack that has more oomph, take a look at the Anker PowerCore+ 26800mAh PD.

Price: $24 | More info

Apple AirPods

The AirPods are Apple's new wireless headphones for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. They look like Apple EarPods, but with the cable cut off!

The built-in battery offers 5 hours of listening time, and the storage case doubles as a portable charging case, offering multiple recharges before it too needs recharging. And just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.

Price: $160 | More info
