Apple's MagSafe technology is a game-changer in the world of smartphone accessories. The MagSafe system uses magnets to attach accessories to your iPhone 12, iPhone 13, or iPhone 14, providing a seamless and secure connection.
The battle for the real estate on the back of your phone has been raging long before Apple’s MagSafe arrived on the scene. So why is it a game changer? Up till now, most accessories like magnetic plates for mounts, Grips like Pop-Sockets, etc… were basically semi-permanent. In other words, once you stuck them to the back of your phone, they were basically stuck there. MagSafe is the first widespread ecosystem of accessories that is truly interchangeable.
So you think you are ready to take the plunge with Mag-Safe? You don’t know where to start? Well, I thought you’d never ask!
Let’s start with the basics. There is a magnetic harness inside of your iPhone so if you are one of those folks who don’t rock a case, then you are ready to start exploring. For the majority of us, our journey begins with a MagSafe compatible case. Can’t I just use a standard phone case? The answer is… Not really. You see, a standard phone case creates too much of a barrier or gap between the phone magnets and the accessory magnets to achieve a strong connection. A MagSafe compatible case solves that problem. I would recommend one that does not have a thick or multi-layer backplate as this will again give you the strongest connection. A case like Magnitude from cellhelmet is an example of a good option. Now that you have selected a case, you are ready to start shopping!
It's Time to Accessorize
MagSafe Snap RingsMagnetic snap rings from companies like cellhemet are a fantastic options as well. With it’s unique double hinged design, this handy little accessory allows you to grip your phone without dropping it, but also makes an perfect kickstand for facetime sessions or even an impromptu tripod for taking group photos or any shot that isn’t quite a “selfie” moment. It’s available in and understated stealthy black version or multiple color options to make a bolder fashion statement as well.
MagSafe WalletsMagsafe compatible wallets have really picked up in popularity this past year. Most will hold a few essential cards like a drivers license, debit card, and a couple of credit cards. It’s perfect for minimalists or for anyone who is heading out and doesn’t want to bring a full wallet with them. The version provided by cellhelmet even doubles as a kickstand! Most brands have options in at least black and brown if not a multiude of other colors to match your style.
MagSafe Power BanksPower banks (portable batteries) have been around for years but the bugaboo has always been around connecting them to your phone while on the go or in use. Magsafe compatible power banks are a dream to use since they just connect to the back of your phone and they charge your device while on the go! Unlike older “battery cases” that had an auxiliary battery built in, there is no extra weight to carry around when you don’t want or need it.
Don't Have the Latest Model? You're in Luck!
Now I know some of you are thinking…. I don’t have a Magsafe compatible phone (like an older iPhone model or even a Samsung). Well you are in LUCK! You can purchase an aftermarket magnetic ring that will stick to the back of your device and basically retrofit your phone to work with almost any Magsafe compatible accessory.
ConclusionApple's MagSafe technology offers a unique and secure way to attach accessories to your iPhone 12, 13, or 14. MagSafe chargers, cases, stands, wallets,mounts, and wireless battery chargers are all excellent options to enhance your MagSafe experience.
