Now that we’re only days away to Christmas (where did all the time go?), you don’t really have the time to browse the shops for a gift or two.
Deep breaths; we’re here to help. Last we checked, a billion people are using iPhones, which means a present stamped with a bitten apple will almost never go wrong. That said, the world’s most valuable company makes a lot of products — computers, mobile devices and a seemingly endless array of nifty accessories — so navigating the store can still feel a tad overwhelming. Which is why we took the liberty to zero in on a handful of stylish, no-fail options, no matter who you’re shopping for. But what if they’re not an Apple user, you ask? Well, maybe it’s time to convert them.
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro comes with no charging adapter or earbuds in the box, so this is handy for new users. While the magnetic alignment is only compatible with the latest iPhones, it also supports Qi-charging, so it can still be used to power up Qi-enabled devices wirelessly.
iPhone 12/12 Pro Silicone Case
Our absolute favourite is the Cyprus Green. Kumquat, Pink Citrus and Product (RED) will make their phones pop (and easier to find). Of course, Apple’s own selection of cases have built-in magnets that will snap onto other MagSafe accessories…
iPhone Leather Wallet
…including the sleek leather wallet for keeping cards close to hand. The little sleeve holds two cards snuggly and is shielded so it won’t demagnetise your credit cards.
Unveiled together with the latest Apple Watch 6, the game-changing solo loop bands (choose between braided or smooth) are available in nine different sizes and stretch over your wrist without a clasp, buckle or any other fastening paraphernalia. The continuous, single-piece design means faster slip-on and off, and there’ll be no more catching on peripheral things like fabrics, bag straps, or hair.
It’s only a matter of time Apple adds over-ear headphones to its repertoire of stellar listening gadgets. Launched just this month, the wireless AirPods Max boasts high fidelity audio, active noise cancellation, adaptive sound equalisation, and spatial audio for theatre-like sound. Its ear cups are acoustically engineered with memory foam for comfort, and attach magnetically to the headband. Apple is also offering free engraving on its range of AirPods to make your gift more special.
