Selfie sticks can be a great way to capture photos of your solo adventures or group photos that don't leave anyone out.

The idea is simple - a telescopic pole with your phone on the end - but in actual fact they vary when it comes to price, quality and features.

Here's our pick of the best selfie sticks for iPhone. We've also got a round-up of the best camera apps that'll help make your photos even better.

Mpow Bluetooth Wireless Selfie Stick

Mpow Bluetooth Wireless Selfie Stick

Amazon's bestselling selfie stick is the Mpow Bluetooth Wireless Selfie Stick, which will work with any iPhone but also Android phones too.

This selfie stick is small and convenient, with no wires required and a handy shutter button situated on the handle. 

It uses a U-shape clamp design that's rotatable, making it easy to pop your phone into the holder and get snapping.

Anker Selfie Stick

Anker Selfie Stick

Also popular is Anker's selfie stick, which we think is one of the most stylish of the lot.

It fits most smartphones including all of the iPhones, and even though it has a built-in button it doesn't require charging which is good.

The downfall is that the stick requires a wire to connect to your phone instead, but it's a small price to pay for infinite battery life and it also means there's no pairing required. Just plug in and play.

SAMAR Selfie Stick

SAMAR Selfie Stick

A super-cheap option comes in the form of SAMAR's selfie stick. It too has a remote shutter button which makes it a bargain, particularly when it's on sale on Amazon (sometimes for under a fiver).

It's a very popular choice, with over 1,000 customer reviews on Amazon, most of them positive, and for that price you can't go too far wrong.

XSories Me-Shot Deluxe

XSories Me-Shot Deluxe

Available in orange or black, it's immediately noticeable that the Me-Shot Deluxe from XSories is sturdier and more durable than the other selfie sticks listed here, but it does have some downfalls.

The metallic mount that comes with this selfie stick is easy to use, thanks to a knob on the side that you turn to tighten the grip it has on the iPhone.

It felt strong, so you won't need to worry about your iPhone falling out during use, and there are rubberised grips that mean it won't leave a mark on your iPhone's screen or case.

Once your iPhone is mounted on the selfie stick, you can adjust the angle using the sturdy hinge, and change the iPhone from landscape to portrait if you prefer.

The major downside, though, is that the Me-Shot Deluxe doesn't have a shutter button built-in, but you will get a remote control in the box that connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth and allows you to take photographs without setting a timer.

Fugetek 49in Professional Selfie Stick

Fugetek's selfie stick offers a 49 inch reach and comes with 3 mounts (2, if you're in the US): a screw tight mount to securely lock in your phone, a mirror mount, so you can see yourself  when using the rear-facing camera, and a GoPro adapter mount (UK only). 

Professional photographers may also find it useful that this selfie stick is compatible with DSLR cameras. You can also operate this stick with a USB-charged Bluetooth remote. 

It's not quite as compact and lightweight as other selfie sticks, but this is a small price for the length and flexibility this stick affords.
