Every year, Apple finds ways to improve its already exceptional products. And while some of you may still be mourning the loss of the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 (more on that on pg. 30), there are plenty of wins for Apple fans this year that we all can celebrate. Here are four of my favorite things Apple delivered this year: iPhone 7 Plus Gets an Amazing Camera There are three things that the iPhone camera has historically failed at: taking pictures in low light, zooming in on subjects, and capturing portraits with a shallow depth of field. With this year’s iPhone release, Apple took a stab at bringing all of these advanced features to the masses, or more accurately, to iPhone 7 Plus users. Both phones have larger sensors for…

Name: Siva Om Title: Senior Gear Editor Years at iPhone Life: 4 Apple Products Owned: iPhone 6 Plus, iPad mini, and a MacBook Pro Office Quirk: A mild phobia of confined spaces means you'll often find me working in the great outdoors of beautiful northern Arizona. My selection of favorite iOS gear reflects this. Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 6 Plus ($74.99) This case is as minimalist as they come, considering it's one of the best waterproof and drop-proof cases available. Its clear backing allows the beauty of your iPhone to shine through, and its reinforced bumper comes in a variety of colors. V-MODA Crossfade Wireless Headphones ($300) Yes, these headphone look great and deliver amazing sound quality—some of the best Bluetooth audio I've come across— but there are a number of competitors that deliver quality…

Conner Carey, Feature Web Writer I love House of Marley’s Liberate XLBT Over-Ear Bluetooth Headphones ($179.99). Their over-ear cushions are big and soft, making them easy to wear for hours, and their sound quality is fantastic. Best of all, all the materials used are sustainably sourced. Donna Cleveland, Editor in Chief While Conner was on a road trip, I may or may not have swiped her pair of Jabra Move Wireless Headphones ($99.99) from her desk until her return. I fell in love. Their lightweight design makes them easily the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever worn. Sarah Kingsbury, Senior Web Editor I have the super thin Peel case ($24.99) on my iPhone right now protecting it from scratches. It's the next best thing to a naked iPhone. Of course, it offers zero…
