MacBooks are intuitive, reliable, and when you add accessories to them, they become robust. Apple has created a universe of accessories from iPhone cases to laptop covers and BlueTooth speakers to Airpods. Having the right set of MacBook accessories can help with faster charging, saving it from scratches, and storing more data.
Let’s discuss the best Macbook accessories that can help you get more from your device.
Portable Monitor Display
If you are working from home, or otherwise, having a secondary monitor with an excellent display is essential. Boost your MacBook experience by connecting it to a wider 24-inch display with 1920 x 1080 screen resolution. Connecting an external display to your MacBook will boost your productivity.
Most of the display screens stand alone, similar to iPad Case, and you can connect them to your MacBook via a USB-C. These monitors support ThunderBolt and HDMI connections for connecting to other devices. With advanced features and a high-quality display, the stand-alone monitors simplify your work in the office, at home, or on the go.
Wireless Streaming and DLNA Media server
DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) ensures that different network devices can communicate efficiently. It allows the devices to share essential data to enable the users to stream media anywhere. To be able to do DLNA streaming from a MacBook or a Mac, you will need to select a good DLNA server.
Using a reliable DLNA Media Server, you can stream to all the DLNA enabled devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, speakers running on the same WiFi network. It will help you download videos automatically from popular platforms, including Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.
Airpods for MacBook
With fitted tips and active noise cancellation features, Airpods Pro is the top-notch MacBook accessory from the house of Apple. While listening to the music, use the noise cancellation feature to lock out the rest of the world and focus on enjoying your favorite track or podcast.
Switch to the transparency mode without removing the AirPods when someone wants to speak with you.
For Airpods (2nd Generation), your MacBook must have macOS Mojave 10.14.4 or a later version. If you are investing in Airpod Pro, make sure that your MacBook runs over macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later.
The good thing is that you can use your AirPods with non-Apple devices via Bluetooth. And if you are not a big fan of wireless headphones, there are other solid choices to consider.
Master Keyboards for MacBook
The latest keyboards from Logitech are designed especially for MacBooks and other Apple products. The keyboards come with spherically designed keys that perfectly fit your fingers. The matte coating applied to the keys makes the keyboard smooth enough for your fingers to type effortlessly.
The proximity sensor on the keyboard detects the movement of the hands and illuminates it the moment your fingers touch the keys. When you leave the desk, the backlit keys fade off seamlessly. This backlighting feature adapts automatically to the lighting conditions in the room where you are working.
Apple Magic Mouse 2
For your sleek Macbook Pro, you would want a sleek mouse that compliments your system with its space grey or silver appearance. The wireless mouse from Apple is 100% rechargeable, so no need to run after batteries. Clicking and scrolling down with your mouse feels amazing with the improved and lightweight design.
A multi-touch surface enables users to perform multiple gestures such as swiping between different web pages and scrolling across documents effortlessly. With a height of 2.16 cm and a width of 5.71 cm, it weighs 22 pounds. It supports Bluetooth-enabled Mac systems with OSX 10.11 or later versions.
Power Adapters and Cables
Power adapters are available in a variety of options, including 29W, 45W, 60W, etc. You should know what wattage power adapter your MacBook supports and must use an appropriate one for your system. If your MacBook comes with a USB-C, then you must buy an Apple USB-C adapter with a detachable AC plug and a USB-C charge cable.
For Mac notebooks that charge via MagSafe, purchase an additional AC adaptor with a MagSafe connector, a detachable AC cable, and an AC plug. You can purchase a spare MacBook Pro charger that comes with a detachable plug and works with A1465, A1435, A1502, A1425, and A1398 models.
Electronic Accessories Strap
Think of having a scratch on your MacBook Pro, and it almost feels like skipping a heartbeat. Right? You would rather want to keep it safe inside a secure case that is easy to carry. An electronic strap crafted from fabric will ensure that your MacBook and other accessories stay safe while on the go.
The fabric of most of the MacBook cases is water-repellent and protects your stuff from scratches and scuffs. Some of the MacBook cases are designed using rubber and silicon stuff for providing an extra layer of security to your MacBook and other Apple accessories in case you drop it accidentally.
