But with a few key accessories, you can take your iPhone one step further. Keep it charged on your morning commute or provide the soundtrack to your next gathering. The right accessories can help you get more from your device—that’s why we’ve picked out some of our favorites for the new iPhone.
Belkin WeMo Switch
The Belkin WeMo switch puts you in control of your home electronics wherever you are. Plug it into any wall outlet, connect it to your home Wi-Fi network and download the free WeMo app to your Verizon iPhone 5. Anything you plug into the WeMo outlet, including lamps, electronics and heating or cooling units, can be powered on and off remotely. Say you’re in a meeting and you realize you left the lights in your living room on—turning them off is as easy as accessing the app on your iPhone. It’s a little slice of that “home of the future” dream come true.
