In 2022 we experienced several new releases like the iPhone 14 series, AirPods Pro 2nd Generation, and Galaxy Z-Flip 4.
More tech meant more accessories; here's a look back at some of our favorite accessories from the entire year. Read until the end to see our predictions for what will be popular in 2023!
1. Glide Case for iPhone 14 Pro ($16.99)
Because a case is a necessary investment to keep your iPhone clean and protected from drops and scratches, make sure whatever you pick is something that you actually like.
The elago signature Glide Cases were a 2022 best-seller because they provide just a splash of color, and the parts can be mixed and matched!
p.s. If you're shopping for a new iPhone, remember to get a Camera Protector and Tempered Glass Screen Protector as well (especially if you opted out of AppleCare coverage).
2. Classic Pencil Case for Apple Pencil 1st Generation ($14.49)
While 2022 seemed to be the year for new tech (including iPads), in a turn of events, one of our best-sellers was our case for the original Apple Pencil. Thus, due to popular demand, we also expanded our color selections!
You can also find the version for the 2nd Generation Apple Pencil here.
3. Trio 2 Charging Hub for Apple Devices ($27.99)
If you haven't started using a MagSafe charger yet, put it on your 2023 New Years Resolution list. Because most people who own one Apple product also own another, a Charging Station for every Apple item you own all in one just makes sense.
4. Avocado Case for AirTag ($11.99)
All we avo wanted for the avocado trend to make a return...and it did, but this time in an arguably more useful way. Our original avocado AirTag case was a fan-favorite across social media and a top recommendation if you're looking for a way to protect your airtag and attach it to anything.
5. MapleStory | elago
Whether you're a die-hard MapleStory fan or just a casual gamer, the adorable monsters in this officially licensed collaboration definitely stole our hearts.
We are also planning on renewing the collection for later smartphone models.
These were the Top 5 Accessories from 2022 for the latest in tech, but check out our predictions and suggestions for what you should get in 2023.
1. Magnetic Stand for iPads ($110.99)
2023 is the year of the iPad and portable tablets—we're calling it now. Not only do they boost efficiency and optimize workflow, but they are one of the most practical devices (besides for laptop) for anyone from students to serious working professionals. That's why we say that if you decide to get an iPad this year, get a stand as well.
Made in Korea to ensure quality, this stand utilizes strong magnets to keep your tablet in place. The adjustable viewing angle that is not commonly found in most iPad stands is perfect for any WFH or dual-monitor set-up. Definitely a long-term investment that's worth the price.
2. H Stand for AirPods Max ($48.99)
From Jenna Ortega and Attorney Woo to your local TikTok influencer, it seems everyone these days is wearing a set of headphones. Whether it's for fashion or for function, we predict headphones like the AirPods Max will be trending in 2023. If you need a clean, tidy, and aesthetic way to display and store them, check out our H Stand in addition to our Clear Case for AirPods Max.
3. AW5 Case with Strap for AirPods Pro 2 ($18.99)
It's no secret the AIrPods Pro 2 were a significant upgrade from the AirPods Pro—shockingly without a price increase. Given how we can't ignore the changes (2x noise cancelling, built in volume-control, upgraded Find My features) we predict that AirPods Pro 2 will also be in high-demand this upcoming year. If you're hopping on the trend, be sure to get a stylish case like this Gameboy-inspired one, our browse the rest of our designs.
