But with so many products out there, it can be hard to parse out the good from the bad. If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't worry. We did the hard work so you don't have to. Whether you're looking to up your selfie game or keep better track of your device, there's something on this list for every type of iPhone owner.

1. A wireless charging pad for easy juice

Not only is the Yootech Wireless Charger highly rated on Amazon, it's super affordable too (most charging pads cost over $60). According to reviews on Amazon, setup is easy and the device itself is pretty lightweight. While it doesn't have the fastest charging speeds, it's inexpensive and makes for a good middle-of-the-pack option. The only drawback is that the pad is a little wider than the iPhone, so positioning it just right is a little tricky. It doesn't come with a wall adapter, either.

2. A Bluetooth tracker to keep tabs on your device

If you're constantly losing your phone, you'll definitely want to invest in a Bluetooth tracker. These products help you monitor your cherished belongings. Here at Reviewed, we really love the original Tile Tracker. Between the slim design and easy-to-navigate app, it has a lot to offer.

All you have to do is attach the square to your phone and sync it up with the companion app. While there's a lot we like, the one major trade-off is that the app and your phone's Bluetooth have to be open at all times, which drains battery life.

3. A selfie stick that captures your best angles

Looking to get the perfect photo? A great selfie stick can help you achieve just that. The Yoozon Selfie Stick with Bluetooth is a good choice, as it's foldable, lightweight, and highly rated on Amazon. You can use it as a regular selfie stick or a tripod. It even comes with a Bluetooth remote, which allows you to control your smartphone from afar. The best part about this product is that the remote slides into the stick itself for easy storage. It's a steal, as it packs in a ton of features.

They also produce quality sound and the Bluetooth connectivity works great. In addition to the soft ear hooks and low price, according to a handful of reviews, battery life is excellent as well. This is an excellent pick, especially if you're on a tight budget.

These products will ensure that you'll never lose your grip on your phone. This collapsible PopSocket has 700+ reviews on Amazon and can be used as a grip or stand.

Not only does the iOttie Phone Car Mount have over 5,000 Amazon reviews, we also have hands-on experience with it. The best thing about this product is its large suction cup. It's very strong because of the sticky gel pad inside of it. So, whether you stick it to your dashboard or windshield, your phone is less likely to go flying in the event you need to stop short. There's even a telescopic arm that can extend five inches if you need to adjust the height.

We've actually got hands-on experience with this product as well. According to our smartphones expert, the Wallet Slayer Case offers suitable protection and also doubles as a holder for your cash and credit cards. The card slot is made of soft, flexible plastic—so it shouldn't pinch your fingers when you pull out a card. It's not going to replace your regular wallet, but it's convenient for subway passes and loose cash or cards. It even comes in three gorgeous colors—Black Onyx, Blue Jade, and Crimson Red.

Tired of typing on a small screen? Maybe it's time to spring for an external keyboard. The Logitech Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard is a good option, as it's highly rated on Amazon and Logitech is a reputable brand. According to reviews on Amazon, this keyboard offers a comfortable typing experience and decent battery life. All you have to do is connect your phone via Bluetooth (no cords, yay!) and place it in the cradle, which is located at the top of the keyboard. The black and yellow color scheme is really eye-catching, but it's also available in white.

If you're looking to hone your photography skills, you'll want to check out the Moment Wide Lens Accessory. This gadget, which attaches to your iPhone's camera lens, helps you get those wide landscape shots. It also makes images look more vibrant and saturated. Some reviewers say it even diminishes distortion. The package comes with the lens, a small bag (for storing the lens), and a rubber lens cover. My only gripe is with the cost, as it's on the higher end, but can you really put a price on a flawless picture?

Note: This product requires an M-series phone case.

There's nothing more uncomfortable than trying to use your phone outside in cold weather. Whether you're gripping a cold steering wheel or waiting for the bus, touchscreen-compatible gloves are an absolute godsend. The Aegend Lightweight Running Gloves are a good choice, as they have a lot of positive reviews on Amazon. They're stylish, lightweight, and work well with touchscreens. They also seem to be true to size as well. However, they're not super warm, so you'll need to layer up.
