iPhone 5 Accessories: What You Might Need For Your New Phone

The average smartphone user spends a whopping $56 on accessories for their phones. So if you're among the millions of people who recently purchased an iPhone 5, that means there's a good chance that you're also in the market for some add-ons.

The bigger frame means you'll need a bigger case; you can check out our favorites here.

For all other accessories, necessary or otherwise, for a full iPhone experience, check out our gallery of goods below. This hardly is a complete list; Computer World recently reported that the production of iPhone 5 compatible accessories has been delayed because of the new specifications, with some companies unable to get their products out for months. But at least it's a start.
