In conjunction with the iPhone 12 lineup release, Apple launched its new MagSafe cases complementing its new smartphones perfectly. However, since the October 2020 releases, there were few third-party options that included MagSafe technology.
Today, just four months later, the options now include some of the most premium phone accessory brands offering MagSafe-compatible cases in a variety of styles, materials and sizes.
Before checking out these stunning cases, here’s the 411 on MagSafe technology: Apple’s introductory line of MagSafe cases for the iPhone 12 lineup includes magnets built to align directly with the phones.
An iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro placed within one of these cases can connect to other MagSafe accessories like Apple’s popular MagSafe charger, allowing buyers to use their phones from any angle while it charges from the back.
With enough time passed, brands have designed their own cases with this technology built-in. Now, there are enough options available beyond those offered through Apple.
Take a look at some of the best (including the OG: Apple’s silicone MagSafe case) below.
The cases listed below come in sizes for the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini.
Nomad produces some of the most luxe and sturdy cases on the market. Today, the brand boasts the most recent launch of MagSafe-compatible iPhone cases.
The brand has updated its best-selling Rugged line with MagSafe included in each case. They’re available for all four iPhone 12 models and include brown, black and natural colorways. The cases come in two styles: Rugged Leather and Rugged Folio.
Otterbox has been ahead of the curve for a moment, offering a few MagSafe-compatible iPhone cases in its lineup. From its slim Symmetry Series+ line to the more rugged Defender Series Pro XT case, Otterbox has options galore.
