Although the iPhone is already equipped with some pretty sweet features, there’s always room for improvement via the ever-growing world of smartphone accessories. You don’t have to go far to find them, either; Amazon is loaded with additions that can turn your iPhone into just about anything.
There’s the practical—a handy magnetic holder for when Siri’s helping you navigate the open road, for instance—and then there’s the unbelievable. Phone-connected mini fan, anyone? A phone-protecting shower curtain, anyone?
We found all that (and 34 more iPhone enhancements) and displayed them for you below.
1. This magnetic holder is easy on your phone and even easier to use.

This stylish holder clips onto your air vents and holds your phone tight with the help of four strong magnets. Since you don’t have to worry about removing your phone from stubborn clips while you’re behind the wheel, driving is safer, and you’re less distracted. What’s more, you won’t damage your phone or phone case because of clips on the holder. Remove and adjust your phone easier than ever with this iPhone essential.

4. Use this to charge your iPhone and other devices simultaneously.
