I think the Silicone case by Apple for iPhone 12 Pro Max is one of the best MagSafe accessories. There are only a handful of cases that is truly MagSafe compatible and the official Silicone case is one of them. Its silky and soft-touch finish on the back gives a premium feel which is expected from Apple.

Not to mention, the Silicone case is also compatible with other Qi wireless chargers but you will get a reduced charging speed of 7.5W.

9. Apple Leather Wallet with MagSafe
During the iPhone 12 announcement, Apple was really excited about the new leather wallet that takes advantage of MagSafe and snaps right behind the iPhone. However, after the recent reviews, it seems the magnetic hold is too weak and you are likely to drop it while putting your iPhone inside the pocket. And that’s why I have placed it at a lower spot. Sure, the concept is cool and usable if you are careful, but that’s up to you.
As for the wallet, it features built-in magnets and is crafted from specially tanned European leather. You can also snap the leather wallet on top of the official Silicone case. You can store up to 4 cards which is decent at best. Not to mention, the leather wallet is shielded so it’s safe for credit cards.
