Our favorite MacBook Pro accessories

Accessories can truly change how you utilize your MacBook Pro. Think of your Mac as a powerhouse and the accessories as additional limbs you can attach to it. The more you add to it, the more useful and capable it becomes. This is especially true on older MacBook Pro models, which only have two USB-C ports and a headphone jack, but you can easily fix this issue by connecting a docking station. You can also take advantage of the extra ports on the latest MacBook Pro models by connecting handy accessories, such as a Qi wireless charging phone stand or a wired keyboard. All of the add-ons we've listed will complement your MacBook Pro nicely, and you can pick from the different categories based on your personal needs.

Protecting your new device is important, as well. Scratches, dust, and cracks ruin the clean aesthetic of Apple products. That's not to mention that cases also allow you to customize the look and feel of an otherwise basic-looking notebook. Considering MacBook Pro models only come in Silver and Space Gray, adding a colorful case can reflect your true style and give off a more fun vibe. To help you pick, we have prepared a collection of the best cases for MacBook Pro.
