Every new iPhone brings a subsequent onslaught of new accessories, especially cases, covers and protective housings and in so many different shapes and sizes. In fact there are so many, it’s tough to even count them. So today, we’re going to look at a few cases and protective housings for your iPhone 6 designed with the minimalist in mind – someone who likes to keep their prized possession protected but prefers to avoid adding too much bulkiness.
To satisfy the Selfie generation, last year iStabilizer released their smartMount smartphone tripod adapter. It was available either as a standalone item or as part of their monopod or flexible smartphone tripod products. While the design seemed quite clever at the time, in practice, depending on your phone it would often, quite frankly, miss the mark. Plus, it wasn’t wide enough to accommodate the iPhone 6. So iStabilizer went back to the drawing board, redesigned it and this time they hit the target.

So the good folks at FlipBelt have come out with a cool little fitness accessory of the same name, so you can carry all of the above, including something as big as an iPhone 6 Plus and more, right around your waist.
Cables are considered accessories and rarely take the limelight in the gadget arena. You usually expect them to be either included with the device or an add-on that you have to buy. The truth is people take notice of them only when they really need them, can’t find them or if they don’t work. Others say, “Who needs cables when everything’s wireless?” Funny thing though, most wireless devices today still require cables to charge them. Universal inductive charging across all devices is still little ways away.
