If you’re like most people, going without your device, even for a small amount of time, just isn’t an option. So, keeping them charged up, as well as safe from accidents, is critical. From cases and mounts, to chargers and pads—you have lots of options out there for your Apple device. With that in mind, we’ll take a look at MagSafe technology, plus accessories with MagSafe compatibility baked in, and see why they go hand-in-hand.

What is MagSafe?

MagSafe is Apple’s exclusive charging system that utilizes magnets (“Mag”) for high-speed wireless charging. MagSafe technology was first designed for MacBook laptops and later adapted for other devices like iPhones and beyond. The benefits? Since MagSafe chargers effortlessly and precisely fit to your compatible Apple devices using magnets, they ensured proper alignment for fast wireless charging, while also making connecting and disconnecting buttery smooth.

While chargers were the first MagSafe products available, there are now a host of other innovative and stylish MagSafe-friendly accessories out there for iPhones and beyond. These include cases, stands and wallets to name a few—and each is designed to work in tandem with the MagSafe technology in your compatible device for effortless, fast and precise charging. Here are a few of our go-to MagSafe accessories, made exclusively by Apple:

What about MagSafe-compatible accessories?

There are a lot of MagSafe-compatible accessories that are not madebyApple, but should still work with Apple products. While most major brands are perfectly safe to use, keep in mind you may not get the fastest 15W charging that comes with an Apple-made or Apple-certified product. (It may be closer 7.5W.) If that’s not an issue, there are plenty of stylish MagSafe-friendly chargers and accessories to choose from that deliver both form and function so you can make the most of your Apple devices. Here are just a few of our faves:
