2018 has seen great innovations across all sectors, but perhaps the most notable growth has been in the field of personal technology. We are now living in an era where everything – tablets, phones, watches, computers, TVs, even ovens and thermostats – are smart. All of this new tech comes with an unlimited number of ways to customize it and make it your own.
Even with all these innovations, smartphones remain the most universal and customizable accessories. If you want to customize your phone, try picking a unique phone case, adding stickers, or even using a cute pop socket. The right accessories will transform your generic iPhone XR into something that reflects your own uniqueness, and there are tons of phone trinkets out there.
Some of the best ones are listed below, so check them all out to get some ideas to help you in your search for the perfect accessories.
If you’re the type that likes to stay organized, a wallet phone case is the perfect accessory for you. We’re not talking about those little stick-on pockets that can be attached to the back of an iPhone – we’re talking a full silk or leather case.
Whether you’re tired of digging around in your purse or want to tidy up your pockets, a wallet case accessory is as elegant as it is functional.
Year after year, season after season, floral patterns remain one of the most popular on the market. It’s easy to see why – from bright and cheerful sunflowers to passionate red roses, there’s a floral pattern to fit every mood and every outfit.
If you think you know floral, think again – we’ve been seeing some new floral case designs that are super cute!
Marbled designs are ‘in’ right now – you’ll see them a lot in jewelry, accessories, and even office supplies. Not surprisingly, marbled phone cases are also very popular, almost more so than florals.
If you’re not familiar with the design, it’s exactly what you think, except on your phone and not your kitchen counter. Marble swirls can come in any color, or even a mix of several colors beautifully blended together. Your phone will look like something straight out of a museum!
Stickers and Pop Sockets
Another great way to accessorize a phone – and even personalize a case – is to use stickers and pop sockets. The stickers you use don’t necessarily have to be specially made for phones. You can use any that might be meaningful to you or even just some that look cute.
Pop sockets are great in that they are dual purpose. They look cute and help you hold your phone, which can be especially useful for the rather large iPhone XR. You can also use it to prop your phone up on a flat surface so that you can watch videos and movies hands-free.
Worried you’ll drop your brand new iPhone XR? One way you can make it easier to keep a grip on is by attaching a stylish phone ring.
Phone rings look like knockers on a front door, but you won’t be using it to knock on your device. While you hold the phone in your palm, simply slip a finger through the ring and viola – instant security.
Like a pop socket, the ring can also be used to stand your iPhone XR up on flat surfaces. And with a variety of color and design options, a phone ring makes for one eye-catching accessory.
This is a trend we’ve seen pop up in recent years, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon. Wood cases can be laser engraved with any design you can think of, from mountain scenery to your name written in beautiful calligraphy.
While this level of personalization doesn’t come cheap, wood cases are one of the most unique ways to accessorize your iPhone XR.
