Some of the newest iPhone accessories are really creative and fun, and they’ll help you fall back in love with your device. Plus, many of these accessories will also work with future iPhone models. Here are some of our favorite new iPhone 6 accessories, as well as a few cool iPhone 6 Plus accessories. Our list includes iPhone camera accessories, cool iPhone cases, and power accessories to keep your iPhone fully charged all day long.
1. Xtender Pro iPhone Selfie Stick
A new model for 2015, this selfie stick works with the iPhone 6. It’s also backed by a money-back guarantee, making this a nice option for people who are in the market for their first selfie stick. Unlike some selfie sticks that rely on battery power, this battery-free selfie stick just requires the use of a built-in cable. The stick extends up to three feet, which should be sufficient for most selfie shots.
Looking for an even cheaper stick, or thinking about splurging on a top-of-the-line model? You can also check out some iPhone-compatible selfie sticks in our post on the best selfie sticks, or see some iPhone 6-specific recommendations in our guide to the best iPhone 6 selfie sticks.

2. Trident Athena Series Privacy Glass Screen Protector
This privacy glass screen protector was just released this month. Trident sent us a sample of this screen protector so we could see first-hand just how quickly it installs, and how well the privacy film blocked prying eyes. This screen protector is available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as many other smartphones and tablets. This screen protector is a scant 0.2mm thick, and is designed to repel oil, scratches, and smudges. The Athena series of screen protectors has a 9H surface hardness rating, which means that it’s tougher than steel, emeralds, or sapphires. I tried to scratch it with my keys, and couldn’t leave a mark.
Our sample screen protector from the Athena Series installed quite quickly, and without a single bubble. While it did come with both a microfiber cloth and a cleaning wipe, it would have been nice if this screen protector also came with a suction cup. That added accessory would have made it a bit easier to remove and reposition the screen protector. Overall, however, this iPhone 6 screen protector was quick to install, and it provides a nice measure of privacy for anyone who doesn’t want someone reading over their shoulder.
