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

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.
