The iPhone 4 and 4S are currently the most popular smartphones on the market, with the latter quickly gaining the upper hand in sales (which is actually pretty amazing if you think about it). There are just as many iPhones as there are Android phones, which is very impressive considering it’s just one company that makes the device as opposed to about half a dozen of them.
The iTunes apps marketplace has as many apps as all the other platforms combined – the iPhone is the king, that’s what I’m saying. Given the huge popularity of the handset, there are also a lot of accessories and gadgets to complement and make it better, and some of the best stuff is exclusive to Apple’s device. Here are only a few of the coolest and most interesting accessories for the iPhone that you should check out as soon as you get the chance..
5 Cool iPhone Accessories
Spigen GLAS.t Protective Glass iPhone Accessory
Spigen has something very unique to offer for iPhone 4 and 4S owners – the GLAS.t protective layer. If you want to protect your phone’s display from scratches, this is the ultimate protector you can get.
Compared to the usual films, the GLAS.t is stronger, more durable and clearer. All thanks to the use of a very thin sheet of actual glass instead of the usual polymer film. It’s very flexible, too, so you won’t crack it when installing, and it will be practically invisible after installation, with no bubbles under it, either.
iCade Mobile Controller iPhone Accessory
The iCade Mobile gaming controller is a pretty interesting and useful gadget for your iPhone. It basically turns it into a portable gaming console, although sadly it’s not a modern one – as the name implies, it’s meant for older plat-former type games and arcades.
But if you’re into retro gaming and want to relive the experience of the good old Nintendo and Sega controllers, this accessory is definitely a must try.
OtterBox Defender case iPhone Accessory
The Otterbox Defender series offers the ultimate protection for your iPhone against external elements. Once your iPhone is inside the case, you can be sure that you won’t be able to break or even scratch it under normal use. And it will more than likely survive intact even in the harshest environments.
The Defender protects your iPhone against drops, scratches, dust, sun and rain, so if you’re always working in the field or want to go camping for a few days with your iPhone in tow, this case is a must have.
Cinemin Slice Pico Projector iPhone Accessory
You know that your iPhone 4S has video out capability using the universal port at the bottom side, right? Well, the Cinemin Slice is one of the best accessories you can get if you want to make full use of that functionality.
The Slice is a compact projector dock that lets you output anything from photos and video to presentations and games on a 60 inch projected display. Now you don’t even need an iPad to show your work to other people – just your iPhone and the Slice!
Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air dock iPhone Accessory
There are many audio docks for the iPhone and iPad out there, but the Zeppelin Air is the coolest looking one so far. As the name implies, it has the unmistakable elongated oval design of a good old airship, and some pretty nice hardware on the inside, as well.
The sound quality is very high and for the size, this thing is pretty loud. The most important feature, however, is the support for Airplay – if you don’t want to dock your iPhone, you can just stream music to the dock wirelessly!
There are plenty of other great accessories around, but the above five-o struck me with their uniqueness – if you have an iPhone 4 or 4S or even an iPad (although I’m sure you’d get both if you like Apple’s products), be sure to check out these gadgets – you’ll definitely be impressed.
