From the moment Apple introduced its MagSafe system on the iPhone 12, it was inevitable that some imaginative third-party companies would come in and produce accessories with a little more flair than Apple’s Wallet with MagSafe. And while the MOFT MagSafe Wallet may only look like another wallet accessory at first glance, there’s actually much more behind the striking, origami-inspired design than aesthetics.
MOFT is best known for its folding Laptop Stand, which sticks flat to the bottom of a notebook and pops into shape when you need a more ergonomic angle. We featured these popular stands on our llist of the best Christmas gifts of 2020, and so we were excited to learn the brand was back with something new for the iPhone 12. Much like those laptop stands, the MOFT Wallet uses the folding concept to great effect.
Like Apple’s own MagSafe wallet, MOFT’s wallet can hold three cards. But if you give the Moft MagSafe Wallet a gentle nudge downward, it folds into a stand that lets you prop up the iPhone 12 three different ways, including portrait, landscape and float mode. Float mode not only gives you a better angle when you’re watching video on your phone, but if you’re the type who doesn’t use a case, it also keeps the side of the iPhone’s metal body from coming in contact with a surface that could scratch it.
This attention to design is noticeable elsewhere, as MOFT boasts that its wallet has stronger magnets than Apple’s. While that may seem like a minor “upgrade,” it will actually make a big difference as numerous early reviews of the Apple MagSafe Wallet noted that it slides off the phone a little too easy.
Speaking of magnets, you can find them on both sides of the MOFT wallet, offering further flexibility in the ways you can use it. Placing Apple’s MagSafe charger between the phone and the MOFT wallet will give you a makeshift charging stand so that you can quickly glance at your phone when its sitting on a desk or nightstand.
You can also take your phone with the wallet attached and stick it to any magnetic surface (or one of MOFT’s sticky pads) so that you can conveniently keep your phone within eyeshot.
And for those who might not want an accessory made from animal byproducts, the MOFT wallet is made from 100% vegan leather, which will eliminate any semblance of a guilty conscience. But the best aspect of this MagSafe accessory might be the price: Whereas the Apple MagSafe Wallet usually costs $60, the MOFT wallet will only run you $29.99.
And if the MOFT wallet speaks to your minimalist tendencies (or you know someone else who would be thrilled to have one), they’re available now in three different colors: black, brown, gray and blue. Be sure to give them a look below. So far, this is one of the best iPhone 12 accessories we’ve found.
