Have you bought a new Apple iPhone Xs and want to help keep it looking as shiny and new as possible, for as long as possible? To do that, you’ll want to pick up some accessories like a case or screen protector – or maybe you just want to enjoy your new iPhone to its fullest with some new earphones! We’ve put together a short selection of accessories to match a new iPhone.
1 Apple AirPods
Apple’s AirPods are a no-brainer if you’re buying an iPhone and want some wireless earphones that you can take with you on the go. Apple AirPods connect effortlessly with iPhone through Apple’s own proprietary W1 chip – open the Apple AirPods case near your iPhone and you’ll get an on-screen prompt to pair the two for the first time, so you can just tap and go. With the included charging carry case you can get more than 24 hours of total listening time1, and up to five hours of listening on a single charge2 with the Apple AirPods in your ears.
2 Tech21 Evo Check case
Buying a protective case can help keep your iPhone safer if you happen to drop it, as well as assisting in keeping your new device clean of unwanted smudges, dust or scratches from everyday use. Tech21 makes some of the sturdiest protective cases backed up by scientifically tested materials, and the Tech21 Evo Check case also adds a bit of colourful flair – with a range of different colours available. Even better, the Tech21 Evo Check case won’t interfere with your new iPhone’s wireless charging feature.
3 Apple Lightning to USB cable
Your new iPhone Xs or Xs Max comes with an included Apple Lightning to USB cable for charging and data transfer, but you can also use it as an extra – whether it’s for charging on the go or keeping it in your backpack or purse just in case. Apple’s Lighting to USB cable can be connected to your PC or a power bank, or to an Apple USB Power Adapter (sold separately) to plug into a wall outlet. Plus, if you have friends with iPhones, having an additional cable might just make you a bit more popular…
4 Telstra Screen Protector
Your screen is your first and most important point of contact with your iPhone – it’s what you look at more than anything else! Because of that, it makes sense to keep it as safe as possible, and we sell a screen protector that attaches securely and helps protect it from everyday wear and tear. Just like a protective case, a high quality screen protector is a very smart choice for anyone looking to make sure their new iPhone stays in top condition.
5 Mophie Wireless Charging Base
The new Apple iPhone Xs and Xs Max, like the Apple iPhone X, supports wireless charging – if you have a wireless charging pad (sold separately), you can charge your iPhone just by placing it down on the charger instead of plugging it in. Wireless charging comes in handy because you don’t have to hunt around for a cable, and it means that you can just pick your new iPhone up and go. Mophie’s Wireless Charging Base is one of several wireless charging solutions available for the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, and it’s a slim and sophisticated-looking piece of technology that will make charging your device easier.
What you need to know
1 Testing conducted by Apple in August 2016 using preproduction AirPod units and software paired with preproduction iPhone 7 units and software. The playlist consisted of 358 unique audio tracks purchased from the iTunes Store (256-Kbps AAC encoding). Volume was set to 50 per cent. Testing consisted of full AirPods battery discharge while playing audio until the first AirPod stopped playback. The drained AirPods were charged for 30 minutes, then audio playback was continued until the first AirPod stopped playback. This cycle was repeated until both the AirPods and the charging case were fully discharged. Battery life depends on device settings, usage and many other factors.
