Apple announced a new MagSafe Battery Pack for iPhone 12 — and if you were among those who immediately added the $99 magnetic charger to your cart, the next thing you might want to consider is whether you’ve got a MagSafe-compatible phone case.
The tech giant’s magnetic accessories line is designed for convenient snap-on wireless charging and more. Apple already has a range of iPhone battery cases, and its new MagSafe pack attaches magnetically to all four of the latest iPhone 12 models (including the Mini, Pro and Pro Max models).
The MagSafe Battery Pack charges iPhones with up to five watts of power, or up to 15 watts if you connect the charger to a 20-watt power adapter or a higher power source. An Apple support page notes that the battery requires the yet-to-be-released iOS 14.7 software update, so it’s likely to be available soon.
If you’re not sure whether your existing iPhone 12 case works with Apple’s MagSafe ecosystem of accessories, your best bet is to choose a product that specifically states compatibility with the magnetic charging feature. It’s worth noting that some third-party phone cases designed for iPhone 12 models — particularly the little-known brand names found on marketplaces like Amazon — may be too thick to allow for the MagSafe signals to pass through to the phone for wireless charging.
Here, we’ve rounded up the best iPhone 12 MagSafe-compatible phone cases, from sleek leather options to summer-ready floral-print designs. Check out our top picks below.
