Christmas is almost here, but if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet don’t worry. We know how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift for everyone, so here we’ve rounded-up the best new Apple-related tech we’ve seen throughout the year.
This year, Apple has launched new Macs and MacBooks,the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, the stunning new iPhone X and updates to more products besides. Read on for our top picks of Apple and Apple related gifts for the most important (and tech loving) people in your life this Christmas.
Beoplay H4 wireless headphones
Gone is the headphone jack in the iPhone, with all of the latest models requiring Lightning or wireless headphones. These are the latter, perfectly stylish and capable of connecting to any device via Bluetooth.
Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H4 are available in six stunning colours, offer up to 19 hours battery life and are designed with comfort in mind. They’d make an impressive Christmas gift for a friend or loved one, or a brilliant treat for yourself.
Denon Envaya Mini
Last year’s gift guide starred the Denon Envaya Mini, and this year it’s back but with a newer, updated model that’s said to be even better.
The design of this portable wireless speaker gives it a premium look and feel, and while it’s slightly more expensive than last year’s £99 model it still doesn’t break the bank and continues to pack a punch.
It’s perfect to pair with your iPhone or iPad when you have people round. Cheesy Christmas music strictly optional.
Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad
If you’re looking for something to buy for a loved one that has an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X, a wireless charger could be perfect. A wireless charger is a bit of a luxury, so they can make a great gift that won’t break the bank.
A cheaper option is the Anker Wireless Charging Pad, available for under £20.
Ted Baker for iPhone X
How about a new iPhone case? There are so many options available so there’s bound to be something to suit whoever you’re buying for, whatever your budget.
Casetify Apple Watch Bands
If you know someone with an Apple Watch then a new strap to give it a stylish upgrade could be just what you’re looking for.
We have a whole round-up of Apple Watch straps, but Casetify’s are particularly nice and affordable too.
You can take a look at the whole range on Casetify’s website here.
Nanoleaf Aurora Starter Kit
We love the Nanoleaf Aurora Lighting Smarter Kit, which works with Apple Homekit to allow you to control the lights and their colours from an iPhone or iPad.
You’ll get a set of connected, WiFi-enabled wall-mounted light panels that can be used to set a variety of different patterns and sequences, whatever takes your fancy.
It’s one of the most stylish smart lights around and could make the perfect gift for just about anyone.
You’ll find more smart gadgets in our round-up of the best smart home devices for HomePod.
Sphero Ultimate Lightning McQueen
Sphero’s app-controlled toys are better than ever this Christmas, with amazing robots ranging from an R2-D2 Droid to the Lightning McQueen car shown here.
You’ll find that they are incredibly well made and so much fun to play with, making the perfect gift for kids and adults alike.
littleBits Droid Inventor Kit
Equally fun but also educational is the LittleBits Droid Inventor Kit, which encourages kids to learn how to create circuits and will lead them to create an app-controlled Droid of their very own.
LittleBits also makes additional kits that’ll let your kids invent much more and really get creative. You can see the whole range of kits here.
Know an avid mobile gamer? You could make their experience a whole lot better by buying them a Gamevice Controller for their iPhone or iPad.
It slots on to either side of the device in landscape mode, adding analogue sticks, a D-pad and buttons for a serious gaming upgrade.
EasyAcc 20000mAh Power Bank
A power bank can be a great gift for an iPhone owner, particularly if their iPhone is an older model as the batteries tend to get a little weary after a few years.
We like this EasyAcc power bank, which should be able to charge your phone more than five times meaning you can be away from power for a few days without worrying.
Plus, it’s capable of charging up to four devices at once, and even comes with a little torch.
