Apple announced the new iPhone 12 line yesterday. While devices aren’t available to preorder for a few days, Amazon Prime Day is in its final gasps. So here’s a chance to load up on some iPhone 12 accessories (and cell phone accessories, in general).
Below are some ideas for what you may want for your new iPhone 12 — and what’s on sale during Prime Day.
USB-C Adapters and Chargers
Apple is shipping the new iPhone 12s with a USB-C to Lightning cable — without an adapter plug.
Great. Thanks. (And this article takes to task Apple’s claim this move was so environmentally great.)
If this is your first USB-C rodeo and you have only “standard” USB adapters or sockets, you’ll need a way to charge your device.
USB-A to USB-C adapters are a simple, inexpensive solution that plug into your current wall adapter.
I grabbed this set of three from AUKEY for $6.49 during a Lightning Deal good until 8:30 PM Eastern / 5:30 PM Pacific (inventory permitting). However, they normally sell for $7.99 — which is still a pretty reasonable price.
Faster plug-in chargers are also good options. (I believe the current Apple iPhone wall charger is, like, 5W.) Something like this 18-watt unit from UGREEN should do the trick just fine and not break your bank. Or you could really have fun and get a bunch more ports with their 65W device.
You gotta protect your new baby with a case, right? Or at least make it look snazzy? 🙂
Manufacturers are already selling iPhone 12 cases.
This Jorontall model looks pretty jazzy.
Spare Lightning Cables
I don’t know about you, but I’m hemorrhaging Lightning cables. If this is your first go-around with iPhone or iPad, though, then you’ll probably want some spares for travel and various parts of your house.
You can buy the Apple-branded ones for a premium (type A or type C). I’ve chanced it with off-brands and they’ve worked fine. (Some people warn that using non-Apple accessories may void the device’s warranty if something happens. I like to live dangerously, I guess?)
