Let’s now get to some of the must-have iPhone 14 accessories.
1. JSAUX MagSafe Wireless Charger
Wondering why we didn’t recommend Apple’s first-party MagSafe chargers? Well, for starters, this one from JSAUX is cheaper but it doesn’t compromise on the quality or speed of charging.
In fact, it has an additional perk that made us recommend it over the Apple MagSafe charger. The USB-C end has an adapter that can convert it to USB-A which is useful if you don’t have an additional USB-C adapter.
You can use any old USB-A adapter lying around with this MagSafe charger, thus, saving you the cost of buying a new USB-C adapter. However, it’s recommended to use an 18W or 20W adapter for the best charging speeds. It’s also available in a variety of colors. The magnetic connection is strong as per the reviews and the time taken to charge your iPhone is the same as that of Apple’s MagSafe charger.
Note that wireless charging is slower than wired charging and your iPhone may become slightly warm while using a MagSafe wireless charger like this one. If something goes wrong with the charger, you get 18 months of warranty.
2. Case-Mate 3-in-1 Protection Pack
There are three main aspects of a phone that you need to protect — the display, the back, and the cameras. Guess what, this combo pack from Case-Mate takes care of all three areas. You get a glass screen protector for the screen, a camera lens protector for the rear camera module, and a clear case for the back and the chassis of the phone.
What makes it better is that it’s just not your run-of-the-mill clear case. It’s a good-quality case that has TPU sides and polycarbonate back. Not just that, the case also supports MagSafe which is excellent. If you want to protect your phone but are confused as to which accessories to get, just pick up this combo pack and it will serve you well.
Note that the clear case has a hardback that won’t turn yellow but since the sides are made of TPU, you will start seeing some yellowing in a few weeks or months. The link above is for the iPhone 14 Pro Max but as mentioned, it’s available for all the iPhone 14 models.
3. PopSocket Grip and Stand
This is a must-have accessory if you have either of the two larger iPhones — the iPhone 14 Plus or the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It snaps onto the back and gives you an area to grip your phone in a way that it doesn’t slip or fall from your hand. If you want to use your large phone in one hand, a PopSocket can help.
When you’re not using it as a grip, the PopSocket can act as a stand to rest your iPhone on a surface. You can then fire up your favorite shows or movies and enjoy watching them without holding the phone in your hand.
It’s available in a few color options so you can get one that matches your iPhone. If you’ve used an older PopSocket earlier that used to stick via glue, note that the hold on this MagSafe version isn’t as strong. So, don’t fling your iPhone around.
4. Ugreen Nexode Mini 45W Charger
A dual-port charger is more versatile compared to an adapter that has just a single USB-C port. The 45W output on this Ugreen GaN adapter is divided into 25W and 20W when both ports are used simultaneously.
This output can fast-charge both your iPhone 14 as well as your Apple Watch at the same time. If you’re traveling, this can be a big plus.
Another advantage of the 45W output is that you can use it to charge a laptop like the MacBook Air if you’re only using one USB-C port. The foldable plug combined with the handy form factor makes it your perfect travel companion.
5. ESR HaloLock Wireless Car Charger and Mount
Old car mounts with clamps are now a thing of the past. This is a MagSafe mount that attaches to the AC vent in your car. Then, all you have to do is bring your iPhone 14 close to the mount and it will snap right onto it. You can either use it like a mount or plug in the included car charger to juice up your iPhone 14 wirelessly while driving.
Note that to use this mount, you will either have to use your iPhone without a case or use a MagSafe compatible case. As per the reviews, this mount will work fine for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, and iPhone 14 Pro.
While it can hold the iPhone 14 Pro Max too, it can slip and fall. Hence, it’s not recommended. As per some users, the fix for this is to use a good MagSafe case like the Apple silicone case which provides some friction and holds the phone in place.
6. Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe
Apple’s Leather Wallet with MagSafe became quite popular when it was initially launched. It’s a functional MagSafe accessory for the iPhone 14 series to carry your important cards and some cash with your phone. It may not replace a conventional wallet due to its limited size, but it does its job well.
The wallet is available in a plethora of colors. So, get one that either matches your iPhone color or the case you plan to use it on. Since the back of the iPhone is quite slippery, users recommend attaching the wallet on top of a case to provide some extra friction that keeps the wallet in place.
Also, be mindful when putting your phone inside your pocket or removing it. The wallet may get loose at times and detach. For when it detaches, you can use the wallet’s inbuilt Find My feature to check its last location and set off on a treasure hunt.
7. Anker 622 Magnetic Battery Pack
The Anker 622 MagSafe battery pack is one of the coolest iPhone 14 accessories you can buy. It gives you the magical powers of charging your iPhone even when you’re away from a wall outlet. Just snap it onto the back and it starts charging your iPhone.
The battery pack has a capacity of 5,000mAh which can charge your iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro once completely. If you have the bigger iPhone 14 Plus or iPhone 14 Pro Max, it should charge your phone to around 70%.
What’s impressive is that this battery pack is tiny so that it easily fits into your pocket. It’s also much cheaper than Apple’s offering while being sleeker.
You also get the added benefit of the kickstand on the rear, you can use it to watch content while charging. The battery pack itself charges via USB-C and you get a cable inside the box itself. Anker also provides 24 months of warranty.
Some users have reported that the battery pack gets quite hot to the touch while it’s charging your iPhone. This can make it uncomfortable to hold for longer durations. Alternatively, you can check out these other power banks if you want a wired one with a higher capacity that can even charge laptops.
8. Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand
This is a modern-looking wireless charging stand that you can place on your bedside table or even on your desk. A horizontal bar suspended in the air houses two spots — one MagSafe charger that charges your iPhone 14 at 15W, and an Apple Watch charger. You can use the wireless charger on the base to charge your AirPods or any other Qi-compatible device at 5W.
While there are several such MagSafe charging stations, this is one of the most polished and safe ones. Primarily because Belkin also makes accessories in partnership with Apple. There are thousands of reviews for the product with most of them praising the convenience and reliability. So, you shouldn’t have any concerns about that.
It is slightly pricey, but you’re paying for the quality and brand value.
Accessorize Your New iPhone
Depending on your usage, you can pick up one or more of these accessories for the iPhone 14 series. Whether it’s the MagSafe battery pack or something as simple as the PopSocket, each accessory will enrich your iPhone experience.
