Everything about Star Wars for Apple fans
Apple and Star Wars seems like a crazy combination, but both brands have more to do with each other than you might think at first glance. There are iPhone controllable Star Wars robots, there have been all kinds of fun Star Wars games in the App Store for years, and Siri makes fun of Star Wars on request.
Even in the design of the AirPods there appears to be a link with Star Wars: the earplugs are inspired by the helmets of Stormtroopers. Everyone knows that the Star Wars brand is owned by Disney and that Apple has always had close ties with Disney. What better way to celebrate the International Star Wars Day than with jokes, games and gadgets? We present the best ones to you!
Star Wars robots
Maybe you have ever seen them in the Apple Store: the robots that you can operate with the iPhone. We previously wrote a nice review about the R2-D2 robot. At the time, Sphero released three Droids, which allow you to watch the Star Wars movies together. You can even learn to code with Star Wars in Swift Playgrounds! Today, Sphero has stopped manufacturing the toys, but some stores still have a few in stock.
These are available:
An alternative to the Sphero robots is the Droid Inventor Kit from littleBits (€139,99), where you can assemble your own R2-D2. It is intended for children who can program the robot with the Droid Inventor app and perform various missions.
Star Wars drones
There are even Star Wars drones that you can control with the iPhone, so that you can control an X-wing yourself, for example. For example, at Bol.com they offer this Propel T-65 X-wing for €149,-.
If you want to move around in the dark side, this Propel Tie Fighter might be for you. We saw it on Bol.com for € 99, -.
Star Wars speakers
All kinds of funny merchandise has also been devised around the last production in the Star Wars series. That’s how we came across this Bluetooth speaker with baby Yoda at Bol.com €33,-. Whether the sound is good is a bit of the question, but at least it looks funny! Are you more into the classic movies? Then this C-3PO speaker might be something for you. It costs €115,-, contains three speakers and can also be connected to your iPhone via Bluetooth.
Star Wars Jokes: Siri gives fun answers
The phrase ‘I am your father’ will sound familiar to many Star Wars fans. The Dutch-speaking Siri knows his film classics and knows exactly how to give the right response when you say ‘I am your father’.
Siri also has a number of suitable answers ready for ‘May the force be with you’. It may sound a bit forced, but you can also just say it in Dutch. Prefer in English? That is also possible, just with the Dutch Siri.
For those who are not familiar with the famous Star Wars scene that this statement refers to; here you can see the fragment see again (spoiler alert!). Sadly, Siri doesn’t know anything nice to say about The Mandalorian series.
There are a lot more Siri jokes you can try that deal with completely different topics.
The official app with augmented reality
Of course there is also an official Star Wars app, with which you can do all kinds of things. For example collecting characters from The Last Jedi with augmented reality. You can also unlock 3D Star Wars characters and ships by playing a quiz, also in augmented reality. And if you have VR glasses, you can also let yourself be carried away by Jakku Spy with this app. Take a Star Wars selfie in an iconic costume, taking on the role of Princess Leia (with buns!) Or the frozen body of Han Solo. The app also offers news, trailers and more about upcoming movies.
Star Wars wallpapers
The real fan has of course set a Star Wars wallpaper. You can find them all over the internet, but in the article below we have already listed a few for you.
Star Wars stickers
There are two places on iPhone where you can find Star Wars stickers, including a surprising place: in the Clips app. In Clips 2.0, Apple added Star Wars stickers. In addition, you can find Disney’s official Star Wars stickers in iMessage. Snapchat also has filters, lenses and more around Star Wars.
Star Wars has only grown in popularity since the movie The Force Awakens came out. In addition to the ones mentioned above, many more Star Wars apps and games have come out, some of which are worth checking out. For example, play Knights of the Old Republic II, an RPG that was previously found on game consoles and later made the switch to iOS.
Or take a look at Galaxy of Heroes, a strategy game that recently got an update. For the little ones, there are LEGO Star Wars games and Angry Birds games in Star Wars style. For pinball enthusiasts, there are Star Wars pinball machines. Follow the path of the Jedi, save the universe or play against others in real time.
So plenty of choice and in our list of Star Wars games you will find them all in a row.
Watch Star Wars movies and series
On Disney + you can watch all Star Wars movies and also watch two seasons of the hit series The Mandalorian. There is a separate Star Wars section in the Disney + app where you will find all the content about the world famous series. In addition to the films and series, there are also other specials to view and you can watch the documentary series about The Mandalorian.
