Although we’re primarily focused on software at AppStorm, it’s important not to overlook some of the amazing hardware and physical accessories available for the iPhone. Today I will be outlining 50 different gadgets and gizmos that can add extra functionality to your iPhone or iPod touch. Accessories are broken down into different categories; speakers, earphones, docks/stands, in-car, cases, and the compulsory “other”. Whether you’re sat at home, driving to work, or going for a run – you’ll be sure to find something interesting in this bumper roundup!
Griffin AirCurve Acoustic Amplifier
Anything titled as an “AirCurve Acoustic Amplifier” is bound to grab your attention. This small, inexpensive gadget is designed to magnify the sound produced by your in-built iPhone speaker to produce more appealing audio. Something interesting to experiment with, or a great gift for a fellow iPhone lover.
iHome Rechargeable Mini Speakers
Apple has really been pushing these speakers through their online store in recent weeks, and they’ve received some excellent reviews. Small enough to fit in your hand, with a “pop-up” design, these inexpensive speakers might be just the simple solution you’re searching for.
Vestalife Ladybug II Speakers
If you’re running slightly late for Valentine’s Day, these speakers could make an excellent belated present. Decked out with a stylish red design, they fold away to save space. Not the “sleekest” design, but pretty darn funky!
Bose SoundDock System
If you are a true “audiophile”, Bose speakers are certainly an option to consider. The sound quality is remarkable. Their “SoundDock” series works with various Apple gadgets, and these are the mid-range model. If you’re going to drop this type of money on a speaker system, it’s worth first looking at the full lineup.
Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere 2
I’ve always been a fan of Logitech iPod speakers, and this model is one of the latest in their lineup. Coming in at under a hundred dollars, it’s a good option for a sturdy, reliable pair of portable speakers with a rechargeable battery.
Altec Lansing iMT620 inMotion
A fairly swish design and a fold out handle/stand make these speakers pop out of the crowd. They also have an in-built FM tuner for when you run out of songs on that 32GB iPhone…
Another cute, compact design, these speakers pack quite a punch on the audio front as well as holding your iPhone in the perfect position for movie watching (or you can rotate to portrait). I wouldn’t suggest getting them out on a plane, but they could be perfect for entertaining kids in the car!
Digital Lifestyle Outfitters DLZ72626
Questionably long product name aside, these speakers are fairly rugged. Folding into a small ball when not in use, they also hold your iPhone in landscape orientation for movie watching. You can power them with 3 AAA batteries or an included AC adapter.
