Thanks to MagSafe, today's best iPhones have an array of magnets around the wireless charging coil. This awesome feature makes it possible for a range of exciting accessories to fasten magnetically directly to your device. MagSafe wireless chargers or battery packs can replenish your phone through Qi charging, and when out and about, MagSafe wallets are a great place to keep your credit cards. This feature is also great for accessories such as tripods and selfie sticks. Your smartphone just snaps into place. All iPhones since the iPhone 12 are MagSafe compatible except the third-generation iPhone SE (although there are ways to make your older phones MagSafe compatible). Let’s take a look at the best MagSafe accessories for your Apple smartphone.

Best MagSafe accessories for your iPhone in 2023: The bottom line

It’s difficult to choose the best MagSafe accessory for your iPhone. How do you compare a tripod with a portable battery or a storage wallet with a charger? Yet there’s one accessory we’d certainly recommend you buy first. We all like to protect our iPhones with an impact-resistant case. If you get an Apple MagSafe Case, it holds your magnetic accessories in place on your iPhone. If you’re interested in using MagSafe gear, a compatible case should be your first port of call.

We also recommend a MagSafe charger. If you get one that charges multiple Apple devices at once, like Belkin’s Boost Charge Pro, you can power up your iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods from one outlet. There’s no need to hunt around for plugs, cables, and free sockets every time one of your devices needs a charge.

What you purchase next is up to you. You could get a GorillaPod for taking better pictures, a charger to keep your phone powered up whether at home or away, or maybe a PowerGrip to extend its battery life when you’re away from an outlet for a while. There’s a wealth of compatible peripherals out there, even some other great regular accessories for your iPhone, and the ones we list in this article are some of the best. So it's best to start here.
