Whether you’re enjoying the new iPhone 7 or waiting for it to arrive, a number of other accessories have released for it (along with a bunch that can be used by it and other phones and tablets). We’ve already shared about some of the best wireless headphones out there to connect your new phone too, but there are other accessories that can be useful with the device. From stylish solutions to those pesky cords to tools to enhance the sound experience, see accessories that can help you both while on to go or relaxing at home.

Grovemade’s Maple Wood iPhone Bumper

For a cool, unique twist on a regular new iPhone case, Grovemade has a line of all-wood constructions. With a minimalist design, the Maple Wood iPhone Bumper is handcrafted from domestic hardwoods. The cases also allow access to all connectors and ports, and include a laser-cut actuated power and volume button. ($59, www.grovemade.com)

Moment’s Superfish Lens

Exciting news for camera fans: Moment has just released its widest lens yet at 15 MM. Said to provide crisp edge-to-edge photos, this lens can help you capture images and videos in tight spaces or make landscapes look even bigger. The lenses attach to your phone via a mounting plate for your selected device or with one of Moment’s cases. While new plates and cases for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be coming out later this fall (pre-ordering is available through the website), the Superfish lens is available now for older models.

Griffin’s Survivor Power Bank Rugged Battery

This durable power bank can provide up to three full charges for smartphones (and around one full charge for tablets) with its 10,050 mAh capacity. It also has up to a 6.5′ drop protection to protect it from falls on hard surfaces like concrete, and is to resist water damage and dust particles. A self-sealing flap keeps the battery’s power ports and built-in LED emergency flashlight clean and dry at all times. ($59, www.griffintechnology.com

Native Union’s Tag Cable

Cords can get pretty annoying, but thankfully there are a few options out there that can help. One of them is Native Union’s new Tag Cable, a luxurious little thing that can be cleverly disguised as a luggage tag. Handcrafted from fine Italian leather, the Tag Cable can loop around any bag strap or key holder for easy mobility. ($49, www.nativeunion.com)

Apple’s AirPods

If you’ll be making the move to wireless headphones, Apple’s upcoming AirPods, available in late-October, instantly set up and are ready to work with your iPhone 7, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac just by flipping open the lid of its innovative charging case. Its advanced sensors know when you’re listening, pause whenever you take them out and activate Siri with a double tap. With a custom-designed Apple W1 chip, you can listen for up to five hours after a single charge, while the case itself provides 24 hours of battery life. ($159, www.apple.com)
