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.
