Recently bought a new phone? Congrats! Instead of just buying a generic PVC case and calling it a day, why not go the extra step and arm your phone with these awesome accessories?

From screen protectors to tool kits and more, here are eight, must-have items to keep your new phone in tip-top shape.

1. Screen Protector with Tempered Glass & Anti-Spy Coating

This 3-pack screen protector offers a smarter, sleeker way to keep your screen free from pesky superficial smudges and scuff marks. Complete with both hydrophobic and oleophobic coating, it’s a much easier (and cleaner) way to keep your phone scratch-free.

2. Protective Case

Clear, concise and made with premium PC plastic, this protective case includes a TPU rubber bumper to keep your phone safe from bumps, shocks and the occasional fall. Best of all, this case is designed specifically for the iPhone X.
