The most popular model from the recent fleet of new iPhones is definitely the XR. It’s one of the least expensive models of the bunch and comes with many premium features found in the more expensive models such as the iPhone XS and XS Max. But while it’s as affordable as an iPhone can get, the XR is still a significant expense for most people. So, if you own one, you’ll certainly want it to stay in mint condition for as long as possible. To protect your investment, consider getting these following iPhone XR accessories.
A Protective Case
Protective cases are the most popular iPhone XR accessories. While standard silicone cases were the norm until recently, these days you can find iPhone XR protective cases made from high-end materials that are resistant to yellowing and can offer protection from drops up to 3meters. To reduce the risk that your phone will slip out of your hands, look for a case with a pebbled texture along the sides for enhanced grip. Additionally, make sure that the case supports wireless charging so that you don’t need to remove the case every time. Considering how the iPhone XR comes in six different colours that distinguish it from its siblings, many prefer to show it off with a clear case, such as the Griffin Survivor or the Pure Clear iPhone case. However, there are also cases with interesting prints if you want to give your device a more personal touch.
A Screen Protector
But being dropped isn’t the only way your phone can get damaged. Believe it or not, it can get damaged just sitting in your purse, backpack or pocket. I found out this the hard way after my phone’s screen got scratched from my keys while in my purse. So, for complete protection, make sure to cover the screen with a screen protector. When it comes to screen protectors, tempered glass is the best material you can pick. It’s scratch resistant so it can stand up to all kinds of abrasive surfaces. On the other hand, it’s also incredibly thin and practically disappears into the phone.
A PopSocket or a Ring
The iPhone XR is huge, almost as big as the iPhone XS Max. With that being said, it’s impossible to hold it with only one hand. So, if you’re not used to carrying around large phones, the size can be a significant problem for you. Luckily, you can make your smartphone easier to hold with the help of a pop socket or a ring. Just stick it to the phone’s case, and now you have a more comfortable and secure grip on your phone which can reduce the chances of dropping it. These accessories can also be used as a phone stand. How convenient! You can get an adhesive popsocket or a ring for as little as $10.
