Finding the perfect car accessories for your iPhone was a fairly easy job in the past, as the physical size of the iPhones didn’t change much from one generation to another; however, with the release of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, things changed a lot, so if you just upgraded to one of these models, chances are you’ll be looking for some new car accessories to work with the bigger phones. Here are the top 5 car accessories for your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
1) Tylt Ribbn Charger
The first entry in the list is one of the most crucial accessories – the charger. However, the Tylt Ribbn is a whole lot more than just your average car charger. For starters, it comes witha exquisite design to match the design of your iPhone. The cable is a flat one, which is more practical and less prone to getting tangled. However, its real strong point is its power: the Tylt Ribbn Charger has 2 outputs capable of pumping 2.4A of power each, for a total of 4.8 A. This means that it will have no problem charging the power-hungry iPhone 6 Plus as well as another smartphone or even tablet, at the same time, in a more-than-reasonable timeframe.
2) TechMatte MagGrip
Aside from staying charged, your iPhone also needs to stay safe during your car rides, and this is where the TechMatte MagGrip Magnetic Support comes in. What makes this support stand out from the crowd is its ease of use, as it doesn’t use the classical clam approach present in most supports, but uses a magnetic grip instead. The MagGrip consists of two components: a circular magnet that gets fixed into your car’s air vents and a small metal plate that gets attached to your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus back. Fixing your phone to the support is as easy as just putting it very close to it, and letting the magnet do the rest. Easy, convenient, and good-looking.
3) iOttie Easy One Touch 2
The iOttie Easy One Touch 2 is the car holder for those that want something more than just an accessory to keep their phone from jumping through the car. Coming with a fixing mechanism that allows you to fix it either to the dashboard or the windshield, the iOttie Easy One Touch 2 is the ideal pick if you want to use your iPhone for navigation, coming with a system that allows it to rotate, adjust at an angle and even get closer to you thanks to the telescopic arm system. The phone fixing mechanism is simple yet secure, so your beloved iPhone won’t jump out of its place even if you’re doing some off-road driving.
4) Belkin Bluetooth Car Kit
So you’ve got everything you need to keep your iPhone secured and charged during your rides, now why not push it a bit further? The Belkin Bluetooth Car Kit provides the missing link between your iPhone and your car’s stereo system. Simply pair your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to the Belkin Bluetooth kit, connect the kit to your car’s Aux input and you can initiate and answer calls without taking your hands off the steering wheel. Also, thanks to Siri, you can browse through your iPhone’s music collection via voice commands and then stream them to your car’s stereo with ease. This is a must-have accessory!
5) iClever IC-F40 Wireless FM Transmitter
If you’re not a fan or Bluetooth, you don’t have an easily-accessible Aux input on your car stereo or just want a different way of getting your music collection playing in your car’s speakers, the iClever IC-F40 FM Transmitter is just what you need. The device plugs to your iPhone via a 3.5 mm Jack, and then streams the content via radio waves. Just set the frequency on your car’s radio to the one the iClever FM Transmitter is on and you’ve got instant access to your music.
Bonus: Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX
The aforementioned 5 accessories are all great, but if you really want the ultimate iPhone – car experience, the Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX head-unit is the way to go. Aside from the fact that it packs in a tremendous amount of features, the Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX is compatible with the Apple CarPlay, which means it can do a whole lot more when paired with you iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus than just play music. Read and reply to texts via voice commands, get access to navigation or browse, or play music from third party services such as Spotify – the Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX can do it all.
