To help you out, here is a list of iPhone accessories you should have to enhance your mobile experience.
All mobile phones need a charger. For an iPhone, here are your best options.
TaoTronics Desk Lamp with Charger
TaoTronics’ desk lamp serves as a lamp and charger in one. You can charge your device wirelessly or with a cable using the USB port at the back.

If you want to charge using fast wireless charging, choose ElevationDock4. It is adjustable, so it works perfectly with different iPhone models.
The dock is made from durable materials that will make sure it is stable on a desk whenever you use it. Its main body is made from silicone. In its back area, you will find stainless steel knobs that you can use to adjust your device at your preferred height and angle. At the bottom, it has a suction material to make docking and undocking a lot easier.
But since this dock only works with cases that are up to 3mm thick, thick cases might not work correctly. Also, you may need a power adapter because the end of the cable that comes with it has a USB-A connector.

2. Headphones and Speakers
No iPhone is complete without headphones and speakers, and below are some great choices:
