iPhone 12 MagSafe Accessories Review: Wallet, Charger, & Cases!

i'm andru edwards it's iphone 12 on iphone 12 pro launch week and i've got several magsafe cases and accessories that apple sent over for us to check out so let's do this this video is brought to you by casetify makers of unique phone cases with personality stay tuned to find out more one of the standout portions of apple's iphone 12 and iphone 12 pro launch event was the announcement of magsafe what was once a feature to keep your macbook secure if someone pulled on your cord is now a whole accessory ecosystem for the iphone 12.

now magsafe is built into the back of the iphone giving it a circular array and alignment magnet which guarantees that the iphone properly lines up with magsafe accessories like the ones i have here as we get started here i'm gonna have a bunch of content on the iphone 12 over this week be sure to hit that subscribe button if you want to stay up to date on all of them now magsafe was rumored prior to the event but i assumed it would just be apple's new wireless charging technology and magsafe does work for wireless charging but as you'll see later in this video the most fun aspects of magsafe might not have anything to do with charging at all but first yes it does work for wireless chargers which apple has bumped up to 15 watts when using magsafe but it is still 7.

5 watts if you're doing wireless charging with a qi charger instead apple's even announced their own mag safe duo charger that lets you charge both your iphone and apple watch and third-party accessory makers can make their own mag safe devices as well so let's get started with this one right here this is the standard magsafe charger here which apple sells for 39 as you can see this just snaps right on the back of the iphone 12 or iphone 12 pro thanks to the built-in magnet array just like that and it stays on there so once you attach the magsafe charger it's not going anywhere until you decide to remove it and the nice thing about this actually is so this is what i was worried about would magsafe require two hands to basically remove your device and it actually doesn't so you can just have a device on a magsafe charger and when you want to pick it up bam there you go no two hands required now one other cool thing about this magsafe charger is that this is also a qi charger so that means you can use this to wirelessly charge an iphone 8 iphone 10 10 s or 11 series and you can also use it to charge your air pods with wireless charging case or airpods pro and you can also use it to charge any other qi compatible devices that you might have and again this has a really nice heft to it and i like that because this is not gonna go sliding around your desk or your nightstand now one other thing to note when i open this box as you can see just taking a look at the size it does not include a usb power adapter now you can buy a 20 watt power adapter directly from apple or you can plug it into any other usbc type adapter that you already have let's talk about these mag safe cases apple's magsafe cases are 49 for both the clear and the silicone cases regardless of the iphone 12 model that you pick up so in other words it's the same 49 dollars whether you get an iphone 12 mini iphone 12 iphone 12 pro or iphone 12 pro max and also as you can see here it's actually the same case for the 12 and 12 pro since both phones are 6.

1 inches in size so you can see iphone 12 iphone 12 pro on both of those i wanted to take a moment to thank the sponsor of this video case defy case if i make smartphone cases and accessories with a unique sense of personality and style and you can even customize them to make a case that is uniquely your own case if i cases are 13 millimeters thin yet they're highly protective thanks to the two different layers that they're comprised of which protects it from drops on all four sides from a height of up to 6.

6 feet they're also made from sustainable materials and they've got an anti-microbial coating on top of that their iphone 12 and iphone 12 pro lineup is ready to be ordered and i have a few of them here that they sent over so here you can see i have a clear case with my initials at the bottom and this case actually was designed with my first name across the back they've also got tons of other designs like this grayscale camouflage but my favorite design that they sent over has to be this one right here this is really appropriate for what i do as you can see it is a clear case that has several stickers on it that make it look like it's ready to be shipped out for the amount of packages that i get on a daily basis this one speaks to me now if you want to find a casifly case that speaks to you you can check them out and get free shipping by heading to casetify.
