Add-ons you should purchase when getting an iPhone 7

Apple, Gadgets, iPhone, iPhone, iPhone accessories

One of the attractions of the iPhone 7 is its versatility and the number of add-ons that complement the handset. Here are some of the most useful:


This case extends battery life and provides stylish protection for the iPhone 7. Constructed of silicone, the case has a silky feel to the exterior whilst the microfibre inner lining softly cradles the handset. Talktime can be increased to up to 26 hours if the smart battery case is charged with the phone’s battery. Cost should be just under £100.


Apple’s Air Pods, usually available for around £160, offer a unique experience in audio playback. Used in the same way as earphones, Air Pods connect to the iPhone 7 wirelessly as soon as they are removed from their charging case and placed near the handset.

Audio playback begins when they are placed in the ears and stops automatically when they are removed. They also use Apple technology to allow the inbuilt microphone to be activated and filter out background noise. A 15 minute charge will power Air Pods for 3 hours.

The iPhone 7 is a serious piece of equipment that will become a part of any owner’s essential personal support. As such it is very important to be covered by iPhone insurance. It should be protected as much as possible and a significant part of that protection will involve insurance against repair costs, replacement and loss of data.

The cost of iPhone 7 insurance will vary amongst providers so getting a number of quotes to compare before making a final choice is essential. It is also important to understand what damages to your iPhone will be covered by your insurance policy.
