5 Best Gifts for iPhone Users
Here is our curated list of the best gifts for iPhone users you can buy your loved ones:
Apple Watch Series 8
The Apple Watch has been known as the best smartwatch for a while now, and the line continues to improve. If you know an iPhone user who always remains active and wants a digital companion to help them with their daily life, look no further. At $399, this gift is certainly on the pricier side but worth every penny. With the Apple Watch Series 8, you can track important health statistics like steps walked, calories burned, and heart rate. It also helps with other parts of your life, like tracking your sleep or alerting authorities if you’re involved in a car crash. You can’t go wrong with an Apple Watch, as it has a bunch of different style choices while maintaining a sleek and smart look.
iPhone Leather MagSafe Wallet
If the iPhone user you’re purchasing a gift for doesn’t have a MagSafe wallet already, it’s time to get them one. This wallet sticks to the back of the iPhone and provides you with a pouch to store credit cards or identification. It attaches to iPhones with MagSafe charging so that you can still charge your device wirelessly, even with the wallet attachment on. The iPhone Leather MagSafe Wallet on Apple’s accessories site goes for $59, which is an affordable gift for your loved ones this holiday season.
AirPods Pro 2nd Generation
How could you go wrong with AirPods? These Bluetooth wireless earphones have become one of Apple’s most beloved products ever since they came out, and for a good reason. Firstly, they look great in-ear with a minimal aesthetic and quiet silhouette. Some Bluetooth earphones look extremely blocky and uncomfortable, but, as always, Apple nails the aesthetics and user experience department every time. Secondly, the new AirPods Pro 2nd Generation comes with great noise cancellation and transparency mode settings, so you can choose to block out all external noise or toggle on the ability to hear people through your earphones as you wish.
The AirPods Pro 2nd Generation isn’t exactly cheap, though. Like the Apple Watch, these will cost you a bit, coming in at $249. However, they’re extremely worth the price, as they last an extremely long time. Some people still use the first-generation AirPods that came out in late 2016 without any problem at all. For $249, you can feel sure that the recipient will cherish and love these earphones.
Apple TV 4K
Netflix has been going down a spiral for a while now (see how you can unsubscribe from the service on your iOS device here), so other streaming services have been spending a lot of resources on beefing up their catalogs. Apple TV has flown under the radar for many because, frankly, the service hasn’t had many good shows or movies on it. Apple has shown dedication to bolstering the content on the platform, however, so we might expect to see much more from it soon. After all, it is Apple, the most valuable company in the world. The Apple TV box set comes in at $129 and includes the Siri remote. That’s a pretty good deal for a smart TV box set.
Last on this list is the HomePod mini. It’s an essential device for those that want to transform their house into a smart home. You can purchase multiple HomePod minis to create an intercom system within your own home. If someone’s driving back home, they can ask Siri to transmit a message to all HomePods asking something like “What does everyone want for dinner?”. You can use it as a speaker system, of course, but its Siri functionality transforms this seemingly basic device into something that you can’t live without once you have it. What’s more, is that the HomePod mini is only $99 and comes in a variety of colors that embodies the owner’s personality.
