When phone technology is changing on a daily basis, accessories become obsolete and consumers are compelled to upgrade and shop for new gear. Sure, it’s easy to get stuck in the past with old devices and cracked screens, but it’s almost too easy to dish out more cash for the latest and the greatest. Cell phone stores are a dime a dozen in Los Angeles, but knowing the best ones with superior customer service and high-quality products is quite valuable.

Apple
1415 3rd Street Promenade
Santa Monica, CA 90401
Phone:(310) 633-2670

Everyone these days knows about Apple. They are the go to electronics store for all things Apple. So, if you’re in the market for a cover/case, a charger for your iPhone, or other cell phone accessory, the Apple Store is likely to have what you’re looking for. Most of us also dread the extra short charger that comes standard with the iPhone, so you can also purchase a charger that’s double the length of the stock one which makes a huge difference!
