What is Apple MagSafe you ask? 

Simply put, Apple MagSafe is a magnetic ring that is internally designed into the rear of the iPhone and was launched in 2020 with the release of the Apple iPhone 12 range. This magnetic technology ensures precision alignment with the wireless charging coil for optimal charging but that’s just the start. Magnets aren’t a new technology by any means, however, they unlock a host of possibilities when paired with some impressive accessories. Ultimately, making your daily chores that bit easier with the click of an OtterBox charger, stand, mount, wallet or folio.

This must be the case 

The first thing to know about MagSafe accessories is – not all phone cases work with MagSafe, some cases inhibit the magnetic field. Fortunately, we’ve developed a selection of cases with built-in magnets that seamlessly work with MagSafe chargers and accessories. How do you know which OtterBox case is which? On packaging you will find our “for MagSafe” or the Apple ‘Made for MagSafe’ certified badge as seen above or if browsing online it will be referenced in the name, like Symmetry Series+ Clear for MagSafe. When it’s in the name, you’re in the clear. 


Step one is to find the case you like that works with MagSafe. The primary reason for an OtterBox case is protection. The addition of MagSafe functionality expands your options for accessories to ensure wireless charging functions seamlessly, for convenient placement and to make carrying your essentials a breeze. Step two, explore our MagSafe range to find your perfect companion, whether you want to snap on a wallet in a flash or declutter your workspace of unnecessary charging cables. 

Snap on. Power up. 

Yes, you can always lay your phone flat on a charging pad while you work, but then you’re always craning your head or lifting it up when an alert rolls in. MagSafe is strong enough to defy gravity when you connect your phone on a 3-in-1 Charging Station. Small enough to sit anywhere, stable enough to withstand even an iPhone 13 Pro Max, it holds your device at just the right angle to watch the screen as it powers. There’s even a charging pad for your Apple Watch and Apple AirPods, delivering juice three ways with one cord.  

On the go-go-go 

Sometimes life feels like a circus when we’re constantly trying to juggle tasks, but it is easy to focus on the road with the magic of MagSafe. Outfit your cockpit with either a Vent Mount or Dash & Windshield Mount to keep your phone hands free and in your desired position no matter what the vehicle.  

Only the essentials 

Nights out can be rare, but they’re the perfect opportunity to leave the unnecessaries behind — and not just the kids. Got just cards and cash to carry? Connect a Wallet for MagSafe to your iPhone and bring only the basics. Want added screen protection while keeping your info private? Go with a Folio for MagSafe. Whichever you choose, you will have lightened your load. 

Let’s stick together 

Seamless and convenient wireless charging is reason enough to adopt MagSafe. But it’s just one reason. This Apple ingenuity is all about giving you options and making your day effortless. It lets you strip away the stuff that litters your life. You’re just one MagSafe accessory away from easy, streamlined living. Hop aboard.
