Now that you’ve ordered your iPhone X, chances are you are looking for new accessories to purchase. Luckily, ’tis the season for great deals, and I’m here to bring you a few accessories for Apple’s new flagship device that are must-haves.

Holiday Guide 2017 - Must Have Accessories for Your New iPhone X

The first accessory every single iPhone X user should have is a trusty glass screen protector. Here me out here, I know that the phone’s edge-to-edge OLED display is beautiful, but trust me on this one, unless you have AppleCare+, a cracked screen could cost upwards of $200 to repair for the iPhone X, so why even risk it? InvisibleShield’s Glass+ for the iPhone X is the only of its kind with a special Ion Matrix technology that is strengthened with a surface finish that removes imperfections and reinforces the glass edges by filling in microcracks (unlike your phone itself), so if you do mistakenly drop it, you will not immediately see the cracks and dings.

InvisibleShield stands behind the Glass+, and after two weeks of use, so do I. In practice, the Glass+ has been phenomenal. While it doesn’t cover the top-notch, leaving it completely exposed, if you use the Glass+ with a case, you will not even notice that you have a screen protector on it. Available for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus also, you can purchase the InvisibleShield for $39.99 directly by going to Zagg.

If you’re always on the go and tend to be in places that may or may not have outlets like a bar or airport, you really need to get yourself Anker’s newly upgraded Anker Powercore II 10,000mAh battery pack. Compared to their original Powercore, the new PowerCore II has a smaller footprint, all while giving you a huge battery capacity.

10,000mAh is enough to allow any iPhone X user over two full recharges of their smartphone, which is great for those of you who hate seeing your phone go below 70%. What’s more is the PowerCore II has quick charge 3 features that it seems as though Anker has included in the majority of their new products, and they’ve adapted to using a circular ring featuring 10 individual LED lights that represent 10% increments of how much battery the external pack has remaining. One welcome change that I love is the new textured body that will not scratch up like the original model. Currently on sale on Amazon for $29.99, that’s a steal of a deal, and you can add it to your cart by clicking here today.
