Accessory Companies Count the Cash

by Staff & Contributors

With the launch of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus the accessory companies are rubbing their hands together. With every new iPhone comes a series of separate purchases, even if it is only a new phone case or charger. This year because the new iPhone lacks a headphone jack, it’s anticipated that even those that have enough tech hardware to stock a store themselves won’t have everything they need on the first day.

We all know by now that Apple is supplying a 3.5mm dongle and a pair of Lightning EarPods with the new iPhones, but even that will not be enough, and all those third-party accessory makers know this all too well. Companies such as these wait for the problems that will arise with a new piece of tech and then they set out to solve it, (of course there is usually a healthy price for the solution).

So what are the problems associated with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus?

iPhones have always been a good source of income for the accessory companies and this year’s iPhone 7 with the controversial audio port decision is no exception causing a complex set of problems, and of course with more problems come more solutions as products that we shall buy, even if we don’t want to!

Apple have said that the loss of the headphone jack is only a short-term issue although they do recognise that it might be a harder transition for those users who love their wired headphones, but Apple said although they understand it that this change is inevitable and had to be made at some point.

The fact is until we have all caught up we are going to have to rely on numerous adapters, dongles and other charging solutions in order for our new IPhone 7 and 7 Plus doesn’t mess up the way we use and power up our gadgets, and don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s just cables.  Even though this year’s iPhone is the same dimensions as last year’s we are still going to have to buy a new case because of the camera changes on both of the new models.

We are offered some good solutions though especially those products that are able to charge a whole host of Apple devices at once, just like Anker’s five port wall plug which supports whatever Apple throws at us at once and that includes the USB-C needs of the new MacBook.

Even though we are given these extra expenses and will have to probably wait for our new phones as per the norm, there is no doubt that the popularity of the iPhone has not waned over the years and this is most likely due to the full range of downloadable apps available to us for free or for a small fee.

Smartphones are especially portable and with the advancement of technology and the increased speed of Wi-Fi connections, making our mobile devices totally personalised to our wants and needs has never been so simple.

Now we can browse, plan, pay and play a multitude of life enhancing apps from planning your next trip or monitoring your health to spending some spare times at sites like Top Mobile Casino where you can use your regular passwords and payment options to log in and catch up with your friends and family via the chat features.

Playing games and watching videos has become so much more gratifying since the emergence of the bigger screens and smartphone users can also enjoy a range of promotional offers that are exclusive to mobile devices.
