From Pro keyboards to slide-on snapcessories, here’s our list of the top gifts for Cupertino chums

We all know that certain someone who’s as good as fused to their favourite iAccessory. They’ll only put down Bejeweled on their iPhone to browse eBay on a Watch. Their iPad only gets a rest when they're busy salivating over the latest MacBook.

Any contraption that comes out of Cupertino - no matter the price - they want it, need it and, probably, have it. But, once one’s bought all the aluminium-skinned super-tech there is to buy, what’s left to slake a thirst for Apple-flavoured kit?

The answer, of course, is to accessorise. Whether cool cases or wireless charging wizardry, photographic add-ons or ‘Book-hugging mounts, we’ve collected the best in iExtras to compliment your cool-to-touch iOS tech. Enjoy.

Moshi IonBank 3K (£55)

Your iPhone 7 is flat. No problem: you've brought along your portable battery charger. Blast! You forgot the cable. You're sad.

What you should've done is buy Moshi's supremely pocketable 3,200mAh IonBank. It's a backup cell that'll juice your iPhone back to full one and a bit times and, more importantly, it comes with a Lightning cable attached. Just don’t forget to unplug your headphones first...

Knog Expose Smart Light (€55)

The latest kit to come out of Cupertino might pack 4K shooting skills and superior sensor smarts, but dusky recordings devoid of light are no fun for anyone, whatever the resolution.

Rejoice! This dinky bluetooth beamer packs nine high-powered LEDs, which kick out a whopping 130 lumens of luscious light, so you’ll never miss another gnarly night-time moment – and with up to 70mins of illumination from a single charge, blackout blockbusters just got a bit brighter.

Libratone Q Adapt (£160)

Tired of your forlorn friend uselessly thrusting the 3.5mm jack of their old headphones at the rectangular Lightning port of their new iPhone? Put an end to their misshapen misery with Libratone's Q adapt earphones. 

Lightning-equipped, the buds also have a nifty noise cancelling trick that'll let your friend control just how much of the outside world they'd like to hear.

Leef iBridge 3 (from £49.99)

So long, 64GB iPhone. As we curse the inadequate capacity of our 32GB model, shaking our fist at those flush enough to afford the 128GB or - sit down - the 256GB iteration, we'll mourn your retirement with sadness. We might even Tweet a crying emoji.

If you'd rather be happy this Christmas, though, you could pick up Leef's iBridge 3. A memory stick that plays nice with Lightning ports, it'll expand your Apple smartphone's storage by anything from 16GB to 256GB. Sure, it's a bit of a bulky solution - but it beats the weeping.

Apple TV (from £139)

Its maker may have previously referred to it as a 'hobby', but the latest version of the Apple TV is anything but a sideshow.

Now equipped with its own App Store and native tvOS apps, as well as the obvious streaming options - Netflix and the like - you'll find games aplenty, many of which are playable with the Siri Remote. If you're already immersed in a world of Apple, it's pretty darn close to a must-buy.
