Apple's MagSafe technology has been a defining iPhone feature since its 2020 arrival. The groundbreaking technology feature has brought us an ecosystem of accessories, including chargers, wallets, and protective cases, taking the iconic gadget's convenience to a new level.
Every Apple smartphone that hit the shelves after the iPhone 12 has MagSafe on board — and it's a feature you should use if you own an iPhone 13, iPhone 14, or their higher-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro siblings. And because most of us can't leave home without our phone and wallet, there's no better way to take advantage of this technology than with a MagSafe wallet.
The handy accessories mentioned above use integrated magnets to attach to your iPhone with or without a compatible case. To determine which MagSafe wallets are worth snapping onto your phone, we tested products from leading makers like Apple, Casetify, OtterBox, and Spigen, to name a few.

What to Consider
A MagSafe wallet cannot fully replace your old wallet — that's the most important thing you should know before buying one. Most, including the popular Apple MagSafe wallet, can accommodate two or three cards and a bill (or two). If you want to keep more cards alongside your iPhone, consider a wallet case with a bigger storage capacity like the Peak Design mobile wallet.
Additional features such as an integrated viewing stand are worth keeping an eye out for, depending on your needs. So are the products' design and build materials. Spending more on a MagSafe wallet will get you a fancier product with finer materials and more attention to detail.
How We Selected
MagSafe accessories became inseparable parts of my daily routine in late 2020 when the ecosystem of magnetic iPhone accessories had just begun to develop. MagSafe wallets quickly became my favorites, allowing me to leave my other wallet behind and streamline my everyday carry setup.
Relying mostly on Apple Pay while shopping in person and commuting allowed me to reduce the number of cards I carry significantly. Still, I always leave home with an ID, a payment card, and a card to enter the office.
For this guide, I handpicked MagSafe wallets in various form factors that left me with good impressions over the past couple of years. Every entry on this list has been attached to my iPhone daily for weeks or months, giving me plenty of time and usage scenarios to evaluate its design, durability, and ergonomics.
I can personally vouch for every wallet on this list. Whether you're looking to treat an iPhone user to an unforgettable gift or upgrade your own EDC gear, find the best MagSafe wallet among these extensively scrutinized products.
iPhone FineWoven Wallet with MagSafe
This beautiful MagSafe wallet made by Apple, the developer of the proprietary magnetic feature, is the best worth your attention. Available in several colors, the accessory is crafted from high-quality FineWoven material, so it's the nicest to interact with. It also packs powerful magnets, ensuring that it's always securely attached to your iPhone.
Best of all — and unlike any other entry on this list — the wallet is compatible with Apple's Find My service, so you'll be able to track it if it's lost or stolen like an item with an AirTag. I felt better seeing the essential accessory every time I opened the Find My app on my iPhone. The product will also prompt your iPhone to notify you when it's detached.
The Peak Design mobile wallet is a stellar alternative to our top pick from Apple. The high-quality accessory lacks Find My compatibility but has a bigger capacity, extra card storage, and a longer lifetime warranty — which are tradeoffs that are well worth making. While testing it, the MagSafe gadget was also better in fully replacing my minimalist wallet.
Peak Design offers two distinct versions of the product — a slim and a stand wallet. The version with an integrated stand is worth the extra $10 because it can reliably hold the iPhone in portrait and landscape mode. While testing the accessory, I used the latter to game with a wireless controller.
MagSafe Wallet Card Holder
This MagSafe wallet by MOFT is the best for upgrading on the cheap. The product can not only store a few essential cards but also double as a versatile viewing stand with landscape or portrait modes. While testing it, the accessory's magnets securely held a big-screen iPhone despite its slim profile.
A sturdy hinge makes adjusting the viewing angles easy when you use the wallet as a stand. And when opened, it has a viewing window for showing an ID or office identification card. You can order the vegan leather wallet in several colors.
Fuzion Magnetic Wallet
The Rokform Fuzion is the wallet to get if you are constantly fretting about accidentally separating your MagSafe cardholder from your iPhone (e.g., during concerts, festivals, sporting events, etc.). Promptly dubbed Magmax, its onboard magnet kept it securely attached to my iPhone during several accidental drops.
Believe it or not, the Fuzion can establish a stronger link with a Rokform iPhone case. For science, I put the setup to the test, tossing a dummy iPhone with the case and the wallet down a long flight of stairs. To my surprise, the cardholder didn’t separate during this heavy tumble.
Crafted from aluminum with military-grade durability, the wallet also has a built-in folding kickstand that’s one of the best in its class. I only wish it fully enclosed my cards when I used it.
Valentinus MagSafe Card Holder
The Spigen Valentinus magnetic cardholder has a minimalist design with an impressively slim profile that won’t add too much bulk to your iPhone and an impulse-buy price tag. We also like its dedicated mechanism to keep the cards in place.
Even though it has space for only a couple of essential cards, the accessory will allow you to access them conveniently from its top, bottom, and back. You can order the Spigen Valentinus cardholder in black or brown.
Pelican MagSafe Wallet
This MagSafe wallet by Pelican — a brand synonymous with uncompromising durability — is hands down the most rugged option worth your attention. It is made from a hard-shell polymer that is practically impervious to damage. Its interior has space for cards and cash, along with a secure closure that makes it water- and dust-resistant.
My favorite thing about the accessory is the incredible strength of the magnet it packs. Its connection is the most reliable I have experienced on a MagSafe accessory, making the wallet very unlikely to separate from your iPhone, even after a severe tumble.
Leather Magnetic Wallet
Mujjo is an accessory maker with a long track record of making luxe iPhone cases at an agreeable price, and the brand’s first MagSafe wallet is no exception.
The under-$45 snap-on product impressed me with a beautiful design, a genuine leather exterior with top-tier workmanship, and a versatile setup for accessing cards. You can remove your ID and payment cards from the wallet’s top, bottom, or back (when detached).
The back of the magnetic wallet has a soft microfiber lining with silicone stripes for enhanced grip. You can order the accessory in black, tan, and Monaco blue.
Rugged Armor Magnetic Wallet
The Rugged Armor magnetic wallet by Spigen, like the brand’s phone cases from the same product family, has a utilitarian design with carbon fiber-like accents. In addition to reliable magnets, the accessory has integrated silicone pads to prevent it from detaching.
We only wish that the Rugged Armor wallet had more space than the bare-minimum setup of the Spigen Valentinus we mentioned. However, its design and affordable price make it a solid option for those who prefer to carry only the most essential cards.
(Re) Classic MagSafe Wallet
The (Re) Classic MagSafe wallet by Native Union stands out by offering a blend of luxurious design, incredible attention to detail, and sustainable craftsmanship. The accessory is made using a plant-based material dubbed Yatay. Developed in Italy, the latter impressed me with decidedly premium looks and excellent tactility while I tested the wallet.
Other key features of the Native Union (Re) Classic include a slim profile and a convenient card access slot on its rear. The product is available in two colors: black and Kraft (pictured here). Each wallet comes with a 2-year warranty.
Custom MagSafe Wallet
Casetify is well known for making infinitely customizable phone cases, so it’s no surprise that the accessory maker also offers a MagSafe wallet you can make your own. You can create an accessory to your preference by choosing five wallet colors, then engraving it with up to nine symbols in two layouts and many colors and fonts.
The slim wallet is made from recycled plastic, so it’s eco-friendly too. The material has a premium leather-like finish — I felt like I was using a pricier wallet while testing the product.
Finally, we have good news if you are looking for different Casetify designs and patterns. There are tons of them.
Style Folio MagSafe Wallet
As its name suggests, the OtterBox Style Folio MagSafe wallet has a cover that will safeguard your iPhone’s screen. The product can attach to your iPhone with or without a MagSafe-compatible case, and the accessory maker recommends that you opt to pair it with one of its own offerings. I can confirm that the folio was a perfect match for a Symmetry Series+ case.
The wallet has several slots, allowing it to keep your cards more organized than its rivals. While testing, I enjoyed being able to reach for the exact card I need instead of sifting through them as I did on other MagSafe wallets.
A convenient magnetic latch and a lifetime warranty round up the product's key features. OtterBox also offers a snap-on Style MagSafe wallet without a screen cover.
Leather Wallet with MagSafe
This beautiful MagSafe leather wallet made by Apple, the developer of the proprietary magnetic feature, is the best worth your attention. Available in several colors, the accessory is crafted from high-quality leather, so it's the nicest to interact with. It also packs powerful magnets, ensuring that it's always securely attached to your iPhone.
Best of all — and unlike any other entry on this list — the leather wallet is compatible with Apple's Find My service, so you'll be able to track it if it's lost or stolen like an item with an AirTag. I felt better seeing the essential accessory every time I opened the Find My app on my iPhone. The product will also prompt your iPhone to notify you when it's detached.
