Best MagSafe-compatible iPhone 12 cases 2024

Why do you need a MagSafe-compatible iPhone 12 case? After all, each of the best iPhone 12 cases will work with a MagSafe charger as long as it's wireless-compatible. But to get that secure magnetic attachment with the MagSafe charger and use other great MagSafe accessories, you'll need a MagSafe case. Note that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 cases are interchangeable, since the phones share the same dimensions. Here are some of the best MagSafe-compatible iPhone 12 cases you can buy.

You need more than just a great iPhone 12 case. You'll need a MagSafe case on your iPhone 12 in order to take full advantage of the iPhone's MagSafe feature. 

Any of the cases on this list will work beautifully with Apple's MagSafe charger, other MagSafe chargers, and MagSafe accessories. Unlike regular wireless-compatible cases, MagSafe-compatible cases have a circle of magnets inside. This creates a stronger connection to the MagSafe charger and MagSafe charger alternatives. This helps guide your iPhone to just the right spot, snapping it into place. Also, if you want to use MagSafe accessories like the MagSafe wallet, only a MagSafe-compatible case will work. As noted, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are the same size, so cases are interchangeable.

You can't go wrong with Apple's own designs; I like the look and feel of the Apple iPhone 12 Silicone Case with MagSafe. The case is slim, perfectly form-fitted to the iPhone 12, and has the Apple logo on the back. It comes in a nice variety of colors.

For more of a trendy look, check out the Sonix Case for iPhone 12 with MagSafe. It's lightweight but protective and looks adorable. Choose from a number of colorful and fun designs.

Why do I need a phone case?

To protect your phone from drops, scrapes, and damage. Without a case, your phone might feel better in your hand, but you're also more likely to break or damage it without much effort.
