1. Incipio DualPro iPhone 6 Case
The Incipio Dualpro case offers a blend of form and function. You can use this phone with confidence at the gym, while running, or just on the go. The impact-absorbing design and grippable case texture make you feel like your iPhone 6 is protected, no matter what.
Automatic is the best iPhone accessory you’ve never heard of. This little box syncs with both your iPhone and your car’s onboard computer system, allowing you unprecedented access to your car’s driving information. Automatic can help you save money on gas by analyzing your driving habits. Additionally, Automatic can help diagnose what your “check engine” light means.
This iPhone 6 case blends bright pops of color with luxe gold accents, making it the perfect case for anyone who likes to use color to make a statement. It offers dual layer protection, but doesn’t add much extra bulk to your phone. The sliding design minimizes scratches to your phone. This is an attractive case design that is different from what a lot of other iPhone 6 owners have been using.
4. Logitech Wireless Speaker for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
If you want to play music on your iPhone 6, this accessory offers easy music streaming and room-filling sound. This wireless, Bluetooth-capable speaker plays nice with your iPhone 6, as well as your iPod Touch or an iPad. If you don’t have a receiver that supports AirPlay or Bluetooth, this speaker fits the bill nicely (and at the fraction of the cost of a full TV audio receiver.)
This iPhone 6 case is positively bling-tastic. If you want a case with a premium look and feel, this awesome case from Case-Mate really makes a statement. The back is decorated with genuine crystals, and accented with premium leather detailing. The case is very slim, making it easy to store in your pocket or in a slender clutch. While this iPhone 6 case might a be a little over-the-top for some people, it’s perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement.
6. Sony MDRZX550BN Bluetooth and Noise Cancelling Headset
Check out an unboxing video featuring these headphones in the player above. These Sony MDRZX550BN headphones are great for frequent flyers, since they have noise canceling properties. In addition, they have Bluetooth, which means no annoying wires to get all tangled up in your briefcase or purse.
You can get a sense of the quality of this case by checking out the video review above, which is for the previous generation of Commuter cases. OtterBox is one of the most trusted iPhone case brands, and the Commuter Case series is one of their more affordable options. The cases are rugged, and come in a ton of colors. If you have a little extra money to burn, this relatively inexpensive case is a good bet.
One satisfied customer shares her experiences with the Misfit Shine in the video above.
The Misfit Shine is a relatively new daily activity tracker. It tracks walking, running, swimming, cycling, soccer, tennis, basketball and more. It’s waterproof up to 50 meters, and has this cool “halo” of lights that show you how close you are to meeting your fitness goals for the day.
Not crazy about having to wear a fitness tracker on your wrist all the time? The Shine is interesting because it can be popped out of the wristband and placed in a beautiful ‘Bloom’ necklace. The Bloom necklace is made from hand-polished stainless steel, and has a magnetic feature that lets you securely mount the Shine. Who says wearables can’t be fashionable?
Available in five different colors, this wallet case for the iPhone 6 is nice because it keeps your cards tucked away in a little compartment that’s practically invisible. With a simple, ergonomic motion, you can quickly access your cards in this compartment. For anyone who is on the go and doesn’t have the room or inclination to carry a separate wallet, this is a smart buy.
I’ve had a couple of different iPhone 6 cases since I first got my phone. This iPhone 6 wallet case is actually the one I use every day at this point. This case is easy to install and remove. The side power and volume buttons are covered by the case, protecting them from the elements. While this does make it a little harder to press these buttons, it does give you peace of mind.
The sliding compartment for your cards is a little tricky to open, and opens best when you use a thumbnail to crack the slider a bit. I actually like that the card compartment is a bit hard to open when you first get the case, since I’m anticipating the sliding mechanism will loosen up over time. It adds some weight, but overall this is the lightest and thinnest wallet case I’ve found for an iPhone.
Learn more about the Dropcam Pro in the video above. Boasting double the zoom power of the regular Dropcam, the Dropcam Pro is a great Wi-Fi camera for security use. You can set it up through your iOS device, or through a computer. It also boasts a wider field of vision, better audio quality, and improved night mode over the less expensive, regular Dropcam.
Are you one of those people who is constantly swapping out their iPhone case to match your outfit or your mood? Then this water-resistant case might appeal to you. Its best feature is the fact that you can change the color plates on the case. It also has decent impact resistance, though nothing that rugged enough to meet military grade specs. Supcase may not be the most famous name in iPhone 6 cases, but their offerings look promising.
Check out a demo of a house with SmartThings home automation installed in the video above.
If you’re intrigued by the idea of having a “smart home,” then this starter kit from SmartThings is the perfect first step. This kit includes one SmartThings Hub, one SmartSense motion sensor, one SmartSense open/closed sensor, and one SmartSense presence sensor. With these items, you can get notifications on your iPhone 6 about the comings and goings of your family members.
You also get alerts in the event of break-ins and floods, and you can even use one of the sensors to help ensure that you never lose your keys again. The home of the future can be yours for relatively little money, and the ability to control your smart devices from your phone never gets old. There are no monthly fees, and set-up involves no messy wires and takes just 15 minutes.
This case idea is so clever, and will definitely appeal to runners and gym rats. The case itself can be attached to a separate armband, allowing you to go from the office to a spin class without having to take your phone out of its case. While the color options and size options are limited, this case will be ideal for the average iPhone 6 user who loves listening to music while they do some cardio.

If the idea of being able to open your front door with your iPhone 6 seems cool, then this doorknob is worth checking out. Kwikset’s smart doorknobs make your home feel futuristic, and it’s so cool to be able to open your front door with your iPhone. If you are out of town and someone needs to get into your house fast (say, in the event of flooding or emergency), you can grant them a temporary eKey…no more trying to explain where your hidden spare key is located.
This professional-looking case from Verus features a faux leather finish and a diary-style clasp to keep your phone and cards secure. This case holds three cards, along with a slot that can hold bills, receipts, notes, or what have you. Get a closer look at this case, and other cases from Verus, in the video below:
You can never have too many charging cables, but we particularly like this third party Lightning cable because it’s extra long, making it much more convenient to use in rooms with a limited number of outlets. Having a six-foot cable really is a nice perk, since you’ll have more range of motion while you’re charging. This cable is available in both white and black.
Boasting two card slots and an inner pocket for carrying ID, cash, and credit cards, this iPhone 6 case from Caseology is great for people who are looking to combine their phone case and wallet into one convenient item. The built-in stand is great for watching videos or chatting with friends, and there are multiple color options to suit all tastes.

It’s available in about a dozen different colors and prints, making it easy to find something that meshes with your decor and your personality. This particular speaker offers easy controls and about six hours of audio playback.
This iPhone 6 battery case from i-Blason carries a whopping 3200mAh battery, which dwarfs the 1,810 mAh battery inside your iPhone 6. This case feels good in your hand, and has a built-in LED indicator to let you see the charge level. If you want a great looking battery case that won’t add a ton of weight or heft to your phone, this attractive battery case is a great option.

If you want to feel well-rested, this iPhone 6 accessory can give you the best perk of all: a good night of sleep.
