As you know, buying accessories directly from Apple can certainly get quite expensive, especially considering you've just spent $700+ with them on an iPhone 8. Here are some accessories that you should be considering if you've just bought the newly-released device. If you've got anything to add to the list, make sure you hit up the comments at the bottom.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid iPhone 8 Case
If you've just picked up the iPhone 8 or 8Plus, you're going to notice, and be extra wary of its glass back. You're going to need a case that's solid enough to protect your phone, while also showing off its aesthetic. You can't go wrong with the Ultra Hybrid Case by Spigen.
Peel Case For iPhone 8
If you're feeling like a bit of a daredevil and are sure that you're not going to drop your new device, then you could go for something that's a bit easier on the eye. We've been big fans of Peel cases for a long time now, and for good reason, thin, no branding, and a good variety of colours, while also keeping your phone free of scratches. I certainly wouldn't be throwing it around too much though.
Kingston Data Traveler Bolt Duo
If you feel like you're going to be running out of space on your iPhone, the Kingston Data Traveler is the ultimate accessory. Plug the device straight into your phone, download the accompanying app and you've just given yourself 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB worth of extra storage.

TaoTronics Wireless Headphones are perfect for whatever situation you need them in, whether that be in the gym, on a flight, or commuting, and best of all, they're only $25!
