This week is the last part of our three part series focusing on some of best selling iPhone 6 and 6s accessories that you can get. Although we talk about the iPhone 6 and 6s, most of these accessories can be used on almost any iPhone model and some of them even work with iPads as well. Let’s dive in!
7. Apple TV
Apple has finally delivered a 4th generation Apple TV, their first new streaming device in about 3 years. In tech years that might as well be a century.
The new Apple TV offers major upgrades. It’s now Siri-enabled allowing you to search for content just by asking. Saying things like: “Siri, play Seinfeld” will give you the option to play it right in the Hulu Plus app.

Speaking of apps, they get a whole new facelift. In older models there were a limited number of apps available, but now developers can create their own apps for the platform and publish them. The remote is also brand-new, it’s bigger (thank God) and has touch capability.
Here’s a video review by Dom Esposito:
Of course, the reason it’s an iPhone accessory is because you can Airplay right from your phone to your Apple TV. Meaning if you’re watching, say, a YouTube video or a Netflix show, you can mirror it right on your Television via the Apple TV.
You can buy the Apple TV 4th generation at apple.com, $149 for the 32GB and $199 for the 64GB.
8. Apple Watch
The Apple Watch is one of the most unique new Apple accessories/devices. This Dick Tracy-esque watch allows you to receive messages and e-mails right on your wrist. In addition to limited smartphone options it also works as a fitness tracker, keeping tabs on your walking and general activity during the day.

After a simple set-up which includes pairing it with your iPhone using Bluetooth, you’re ready to use it like you would any other watch but with beefed up features. Various bands allow you to choose different styles for the day. There are three different types of Apple Watches: the Watch Sport, the regular Watch and the Watch Edition.
They fetch for as little as $349 and as much as $12,000 if you are interested in the luxurious Watch Edition. They’re also available on Amazon as well.
There are certain times in life where simply holding your phone or carrying it in your pocket isn’t entirely feasible. This is true if you’re going for a jog or on your knees scrubbing the floor. That’s where armbands come in.
Armbands have been around for a while. I remember owning one for my early iPod before they started calling them iPod Classics. The concept is simple, place your device in the holder and strap it on your arm.
The TuneBand is made up of a silicone phone case, a screen protector and two Velcro straps that allow you to adjust to the size of your arm. The case is not bulky and it allows you to easily access you iPhone while using it.
It’s got well over 4 stars on Amazon coming from over 100 buyers. The TuneBand for the iPhone 6 and 6s can be picked up for $22.99 on amazon.com.
10. iPhone Camera Accessories
Oh selfie sticks, I have a love/hate relationship with you. Mostly hate. But who am I to deny those who love to take selfies? So, though it was painful, I researched and found one of the best selling selfie sticks for the iPhone.
The Monopod by Zonabel is extendable up to 25″ to help you take some awesome selfies and it allows smooth and sturdy control of your iPhone.
Going a step beyond it also comes with a Bluetooth remote that you can easily pair to your iPhone which gives you the option of putting the stick down and still being able to snap a photo from a reasonable distance.
You can pick up the Extendable Monopod for $20.95 on amazon.com.
So you might not know this, but it’s possible to put different lenses on your iPhone camera for a more creative photo taking session.
Check out this video review from SimpleTechReview:
The best one out there is the Olloclip 4-IN-1 Lens. To use it is as easy as sliding it on over the iPhone’s existing lens. The 4-IN-1 allows you to shoot Fisheye (if you’ve ever seen a Beastie Boys music video or any late 90s rap music video then you probably know what this is) and Wide Angle for…a wider angle or larger landscape photo. The other two are 10x Macro and 15x Macro which pull out the details like nothing else, especially in close-up.
Palm-sized projectors allow you to take what’s on your phone and display it in a large “projected” image either on a screen or on the wall. These are great for watching a movie or doing a PowerPoint presentation.
The Asus S1 is one of the better ones out there. Weighing less than a pound this bad boy will project up to a 100 inches. The image is decently clear especially for the price and size.
Here’s a video overview:
It even has ports to charge up your mobile devices. Key thing to know is that you’ll need an iPhone to HDMI adapter to connect your iPhone up to the Asus S1.
While this guy is not as bright as the Asus S1, it’s more compatible with devices and still delivers a decent image. The HDMI Pocket Projector has a 720p HD output which ain’t bad for a little ‘ol projector.
It projects images up to 80 inches diagonally and has a lamp which lasts through about 20,000 hours. But again you’ll need an adapter to connect your iPhone.
I just mentioned this above but it deserves its own entry. The Lightning Digital AV Adapter allows you to connect various devices including your iPhone 6 or 6s with any HDMI equipment. That could mean projectors (as above) or TVs.
There’s some great equipment out there that you just can’t take advantage of without using this adapter. So it’s well worth the investment.
To buy one you’ll have to shell out $43.37 on Amazon.com, that’s a few bucks cheaper than what Apple’s charging for it.
Alright, so there you have it! A pretty complete list of some of the best selling iPhone 6 and 6s accessories you can get.
Did we leave any out? Which accessories do you think are worthy to be on this list?
