Have you heard about the relationship between shark and remora fish?
Let me tell you about it.
Remoras are small fishes that usually measure between one and three feet long. The top of the head of a remora is a suction cup that it uses to lock onto the bodies of giants like sharks.
Why does it do so? Because sharks are powerful; meaning, remoras get a bodyguard round the clock. Further, when the shark hunts, the remoras feast on the remains and scraps of prey.
However, it’s not only the small fish who is taking all the advantage here. Remoras feed off parasites on the shark’s skin and mouth, keeping the shark irritation-free.
You must be wondering, why am I telling you about this. It’s because the technology industry also has a similar scenario.
The Shark and the Remora of the Smartphone Industry
The smartphone industry is an ocean and there are many sharks (smartphone companies) swimming around.
Now, if you want to get into this ocean and swim without getting killed, what would you do?
Personally, I would become a remora. Because why not? I will be backed by one of the giants of the industry. My offerings around a popular product would get a lot of traction. And if my offerings are top-notch, then the giant is going to get benefited too.
Now, to tell you about a real-life scenario, Apple (iPhone, to be precise) is the shark and the accessory companies are the remoras.
I am a big fan of these accessory companies. It’s just amazing how these companies strategically operate in the industry and come up with quirky products for Apple iPhones.
Here in this article, I will list down 5 such best iPhone accessories.
These Bad Boys Will Make Your iPhone Stand Out
iPhone accessories are flooding the market. There are so many products around one segment that it has become really difficult to find what’s good and what’s bad.
So, to ease your job (at least for the mainstream accessories), we have curated the following list.
1. Anker Powerline Lightning Cable
The products and accessories you get with your iPhone (sorry! I know it hurts now) always feel good. But there are certain companies out there that are making absolutely amazing alternatives.
One such alternative is the Anker powerline lightning cable. Anker is one of the leading companies in charging technology and its USB-C-to-Lightning is most probably the best third-party cable. Also, it is MFi (Made for iPod/ iPhone/iPad) certified.
Note: Do not purchase any product for your Apple gadgets that is not MFi certified.
2. Belkin Wireless Charging Stand
Wireless chargers are a lifesaver. They keep your phone juiced without any clutter. Just drop your phone on the pad and boom, it is charging.
And if you’re looking for a reliable apple wireless charger for your iPhone, then Belking Boost Charge Wireless Charging Stand is what you should opt for. It features up to 10W of power and charges your phone with the case on.
You can also go for Belkin Boost Charge Dual Wireless Charging Pads if you want the convenience of charging two devices simultaneously.
3. Tile Bluetooth Tracker
Have you heard about AirTag?
AirTag is a tracking device by Apple. It is designed to act as a key finder, helping keep track of their stuff.
But like I said above, there are companies that making amazing alternatives. And Tile is the perfect alternative to AirTag.
Tile is a bluetooth-enabled device that you can attach to your things and use the free Tile app to find them. That’s not all. You can also use the Tile device to find your phone. Just double press the logo on your Tile to make your phone ring, even when it’s on silent.
If you often lose your stuff, then Tile should be on your purchase list.
4. Lifeproof’s Wake
Lifeproof has got some of the most attractive and trendiest phone cases for iPhones. They are WaterProof, DropProof, DirtProof, SnowProof and whatnot.
But what makes it more amazing is that the WĀKE case is made from over 85% ocean-based recycled plastic and Lifeproof will donate a dollar to a water-conscious nonprofit of your choosing.
To be honest, I really don’t see a reason not to go for this fantastic mobile case that offers much more than just protection.
5. Moment Phone Lenses
No doubt, iPhones have some of the best cameras. But does that mean you cannot upgrade them?
Moment is one of the top-notch phone gear companies that make some of the fine lenses. With moment phone lenses, you can take a step further and give your mobile photos a great touch.
The smartphone accessories domain is getting better and better with time. Companies are already bringing some of the fantastic products to the table and I am pretty sure more quirky products are going to land.
Do you think there’s something else I should add to the list? Let me know in the comments what are all the best iPhone accessories available in the market.
