Accessories That Have Stood the Test of Time

I’ve tried a lot of accessories for my iPhone, iPad, and Mac, but only a handful have stuck around as part of my setup long term. In some cases, accessories fall by the wayside because of hardware changes that make them obsolete. Other times, my needs and hardware configuration have changed in ways that make an accessory unnecessary. I expect my accessory lineup to change yet again when my Mac Studio finally arrives, but looking around my workspace, the accessories that have survived the longest as part of my setup will likely remain part of it because they’re flexible, well-built devices that have already proven they can adapt as my workflows have evolved.

Manfrotto Pixi Tripod

I’ve owned a Manfrotto Pixi tripod for a few years now and love it. The little tripod can elevate a camera or other device that can connect with a standard tripod mount about 13 cm off any surface. Closed, the legs of the tripod come together in a handy grip, improvising a sort of selfie stick. The small size of the tripod makes it perfect for travel too.
