The best MagSafe accessories for your new iPhone 12

One of the biggest new features with the iPhone 12 was Apple’s MagSafe charging (or for Mac fans perhaps we should refer to it as MagSafe 2). MagSafe is much more than a magnetic wireless charger and brings with it a whole range of accessories. In this post we share the best MagSafe accessories for your new iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro.

Apple’s Official MagSafe Charger

The official Apple MagSafe charger sadly doesn’t come bundled with the iPhone and will certainly set you back more than a standard lightning cable or third party MagSafe charger but at around $35 the official MagSafe charger from Apple is sturdy, reliable and charges your phone well (add an extra $20 for the official 20w power brick to get faster charging).

We like this product because the magnet holds fast and it feels really well made in a way you don’t find with third-party cheaper alternatives.

Apple Leather MagSafe Wallet

Whilst Apple Pay brings us pretty close to being able to leave your wallet at home you probably still need to take your ID and maybe a store card or two out with you. For this reason the MagSafe wallet is a great choice. Apple’s official MagSafe wallet is incredibly well made, comes in a choice of colours (with more rumoured to be on the way) and can fit up to 3 cards in.

We love this because it’s shielded to protect your cards and just snaps onto your phone. In addition to that the small hole enables you to easily slide your cards out. We have however found that some users find it tricky to get used to and can find it detaches from the phone when you put it in your pocket.

Vibeside MagSafe Wallet (Vegan Friendly)

Coming in at just over $20 this is a more budget-friendly option (as well as being vegan-friendly). This means if you’re looking for a vegan MagSafe wallet this this could be the product for you. Much like the genuine Apple wallet it attaches to your phone via MagSafe. It comes in slightly larger than the Apple version but this means you can fit 4 cards with easy access to all those cards with its two pockets.

Spigen MagSafe Car Phone Holder

Car holders for phones come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and MagSafe only expands this already complicated market. This phone holder from well-known brand Spigen is essentially a holder for your MagSafe charger (not included) that clips onto the air vent in your car enabling you to see your navigation or use Siri whilst you (safely) drive and because it utilises the official MagSafe charger you know your phone won’t fly off mid-drive. Coming in at $15 this is a great choice.

WAITIEE 3 in 1 Magnetic Wireless Charger Fast Wireless Charging Station with QC3.0 Adapter Compatible with iPhone 12/12 Pro Max/Mini/AirPods Pro/AirPods 2 iwatch Series

Our next recommendation is the 3 in 1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Station from WAITEE which would look great on your bedside table. It’s got a nice modern design and enables you to charge your AirPods and Apple Watch as well, not only that but the bundled power adapter gives you fast charging for all your devices. Coming in at $47 we don’t think it’s a bad price either!

CASEKOO Magnetic Crystal Clear Designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max Case

Our final choice is the clear MagSafe case from CASEKOO coming in at $26. We know the iPhone 12 is meant to be stronger than other iPhones but if you’re anything like us you don’t want to risk a very expensive drop. At the same time we also love the new design and colours of the iPhone 12 (especially the Product Red model) and so we want to see it as well.

This case offers the best of everything. It’s a clear case with military grade drop protection which means you can enjoy your phone in all its glory without worrying about the occasional drop. On top of this the case is MagSafe compatible meaning you can still attach a charger or wallet to your phone WITH the case on.

That’s it! Those are our recommendations. What are your favourite MagSafe accessories? Comment below and we’ll check them out. Don’t forget you can also follow us on twitter @stupidlemontech or read our other reviews.
