The iPhone X is the must-have phone for Apple fans this year, with a modern design that makes the iPhone 8 look antiquated. If you've upgraded to the phone of the future, then take a look at our selection of cases and accessories. These will keep your (easily damaged) iPhone X in perfect condition, while expanding what it can do. Let's get right into the recommendations, starting off with our favourite iPhone X cases.
The Ghostek Cloak is our top iPhone X case at the moment, providing excellent protection in a compact and stylish design. The case has a clear back, allowing your iPhone X's design to be clearly visible, while the reinforced bumper adds a sense of ruggedness. The case is also available in a wide range of colours for less than £20, making it a nice bargain no matter what your chromatic preferences.
Remember mood rings? In the 70s, these wildly popular rings changed colour based on your body temperature. Mood rings have lost their fad appeal these days, but Case-Mate are bringing it back with their Colour Changing Case. Just like a mood ring, these cases are coated in thermoplastic film which reacts to heat. As you and your phone heat up and cool down, your case will change colours to match so it always looks a little different. This eye-catching design is matched by good drop and scratch protection, so your iPhone X will stay safe too.
If you're looking for a more classic design, check out the Olixar Executive Wallet. This case is made from genuine soft grain leather, providing a luxurious look and feel. The case will wear naturally over time, developing its character, while its added features make life more comfortable. The Executive Wallet comes with slots and a pocket for your ID, cash and cards, plus a stand that makes it easy to watch videos in dull moments. The Executive Wallet is a great choice for anyone with classical tastes.
Ted Baker make some gorgeous iPhone X cases, but our favourite is the Kamala Soft Feel Shell. This case has an ethereal, floral design which cloaks your iPhone X in stylish pastel shades. The case's soft-feel coating makes your phone feel comfy, while also preventing it from dropping out of your hand while you're not paying attention. All in all, this is a great choice for fashion-forward iPhone X owners!
If you want to protect your iPhone X without spending too much or covering up its iconic design, then this is the case for you. The Olixar Ultra-Thin case adds a slim and flexible layer over your phone, protecting it from scratches and minor drops without making it heavy or clumsy. When it comes to value for money, it's hard to top this case.
The iPhone X's screen is a beautiful thing -- so make sure it survives! The easiest recommendation is for a tempered glass screen protector, which helps the screen survive scratches and drops that would otherwise damage it. With screen replacements costing a whopping £286, this screen protector has the potential to pay for itself dozens of times over. It's also case-compatible, so you can use it with any case on the market without worry. Nice one.
This is one of the most efficient car accessories ever: a combined wireless charger and car vent holder, making it easy to keep your iPhone X topped up and in the perfect place for GPS navigation. The vent mount works on a wide range of vents, supports landscape or portrait orientation and has a sleek design to match the iPhone X. For £17, it's hard to go too far wrong here!
If you're as big a fan of Darth Vader as Kylo Ren is, then this portable charger is the perfect way to show your enthusiasm for the dark side. You get a sizeable 4000mAh of extra battery capacity, enough to charge your iPhone X from 0 to 100% and still have a bit left over, wrapped up in a stylish Star Wars design. If you want to feel power... (almost) unlimited power..! then this is the battery pack for you.
This portable lens kit gives you three lenses, which you can attach to the front or rear-facing cameras on the iPhone X. Choose from a wide-angle shot for epic landscapes, a fisheye lens for immersive videos or a macro lens for detailed portraits of miniature subjects. Just one of these lenses will provide hundreds of opportunities for new photos and videos, and having all three will dramatically change your experience shooting with the iPhone X. Try it out for yourself and see what the fuss is about!
Our favourite iPhone X dock right now is the WireDock from 4smarts. This dock has a unique cushioned design that lovingly supports your iPhone X, and works whether you have a case on or not. The dock has a universal design that allows it to work with other phones too, so you can keep using it no matter which phone you get in future -- Apple, Android or even a Nokia 3310 will all work just fine.
