Best iPhone 5 Accessories

With the iPhone 5 in hand, many new iPhone owners are looking for new accessories.

Manufacturers are starting to offer iPhone 5 accessories to accommodate the taller, thinner iPhone 5.

While we wait for lightning docks, we share a number of accessories that don’t need a dock and that can pair with the iPhone 5 lightning cable to charge in the car or on the go.

We recommend looking at Bluetooth and AirPlay compatible speakers and accessories that will work with the iPad and other Apple products instead of jumping all in to the Lightning connection.

Most of these accessories are already shipping from Amazon and other retailers, others are available to pre-order with delivery in October.

The iPhone 5's metal back and design begs to be carried without a case, but the back of the iPhone 5 is susceptible to scratches and many users will appreciate the peace of mind that comes from adding a protective layer to the iPhone 5.

    I am disappointed with the battery life of my one week old iPhone 5. With average use if I turn it on at 8 am it is flat by 2-3 pm. I’m in business and need a phone. Can I buy a new battery? Anyone else got this problem?

    This is an amazing beautiful Iphone5 cases, especially the pink one (suited for women).
    Its amazing, but IPHONE 5 created a while sub market on gadgets, that people can make an earning from. That’s what happens with a successful product. Anyone remember Nokia?

    Nice case, but I would recommend the Pong Research iPhone case over this. The amount of wireless energy a cell phone user is exposed to depends on the technology of the phone, the distance between the phone’s antenna and the user, the extent and type of use, and the user’s distance from cell phone towers. That’s why I did research and found a case that can reduce radiation exposure. I read about Pong Research cases, Pong technology is custom-designed for each mobile device and works to redirect radiation away from your head and body. I hesitated about it, anyway, I bought a case Pong because is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
