Jisoncase

The Leather Hardback Case ($30 MSRP; $16 on Amazon) is designed for the iPhone 7; it’s made from premium genuine leather, allowing you to see the natural variations in the hide. There are cut-outs for the ports, but the power and volume buttons remain covered by press-through button overlays—just press them anyway.

The Leather Sleeve ($85 to $95 MSRP; same price on Amazon) “helps you carry and protect your devices, with the additional feature of three functional pockets in the front, allowing you to include all your daily essentials.” It comes in two sizes—one for 9.7-inch iPads, the other for the larger 12-inch laptops.

The iSine 10 ($399 MSRP) in-ear headphones promise to deliver high-quality audio, with the makers pointing to the use of “the world’s first 24-bit Lightning cable” to transfer music from your iOS device to your ears with a minimum of distortion. The company also recommend you use its Audeze app to fine-tune your desired sound on a 10-band equalizer.

ATech’s Powerbank ($90 MSRP; $40 on Amazon) has a capacity of 18,000, which will let you charge the iPhone 7 almost seven times or the iPad mini 4 twice. It can itself be recharged in about nine hours, and has two USB ports so you can charge both your phone and tablet at the same time.

Lantern ($90 MSRP) is a 1,000-lumen light that offers a powerful portable lighting source on the go; its battery is so strong, in fact, that the USB ports on the device can be used to power up your iOS device in the wild. The Lantern is water-repellant and constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum.

Those white AirPods feel kind of blah to you? Custom Color AirPods lets you send them in, and for $160 have them upgraded in just about any color you choose. (You could also buy already-colored AirPods for $299, but the website says those products are currently sold out.)

The Dotti Smart Pixel Art Light ($70 MSRP; same price on Amazon) is like having your phone signal to you in semaphore—it syncs with your smartphone and lets you know when you receive or miss phone calls, text messages, emails, and notifications from Facebook, Twitter, Skype, WhatsApp, WeChat, and other social media accounts.

OmniCharge

Omni 20 ($299 MSRP) provides any kind of quick charge you need—it has AC/HDVC sockets to power your computer and other large devices, two USB ports for your mobile devices, and even wireless charging for your latest gizmos. That means, of course, it’s got to hold plenty of power in reserve: 20,400 mAh.
