We round up — and rank — the best MagSafe wallet choices that you can use with your iPhone, featuring more card slots, Find My support, stands, and more.
We’ve tested countless MagSafe wallets and found seven that were our top choices. Four of them were honorable mentions, while three took the top honors.
As we tested the wallets, we looked for unique features, material, craftsmanship, ease of inserting and removing cards, and capacity. Here’s what we found.
Atom Studios: Honorable Mention
Atom Studios makes our list as an honorable mention for its unique use of materials. For example, it has cloned Apple’s MagSafe wallet but uses eco-friendly cork rather than leather.
The wallet looks unlike any other and is sure to stand out. The cork is soft but has a fabric lining that helps increase its durability.
Mujjo: Honorable Mention
Mujjo makes some of our favorite leather iPhone cases, but they never supported MagSafe. With their iPhone 14 lineup, they do.
To go with the cases, they launched their own MagSafe wallet. Its MagSafe wallet uses high-quality Ecco leather that develops a unique patina over time.
The Mujjo wallet can hold up to three cards, all of which can be removed thanks to the hole on the back and the extra divot on the bottom.
Silicone stripes grace the microfiber-lined back panel, which helps it stay put while mounted on your iPhone.
Moft: Honorable Mention
Moft has two styles of MagSafe wallets, both of which can double as stands. One pops up and uses additional magnets to act as a stand or a grip while the other swings up as a stand.
We prefer the latter because of its simple and useful design. Moreover, it comes in a light blue color that matches the latest iPhone 14 quite well.
The stand works both vertically and horizontally. It has enough grip to hold onto the hefty iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Bullstrap: Honorable Mention
Bullstrap’s wallet lacks any unique features, but it is a pretty-looking clone of Apple’s MagSafe wallet. Apple has a more high-fashion feel, while Bullstrap goes more rugged.
Our model is in a Sienna Brown, but the Bourbon color also looks great. They have less of a finish and are more prone to wear than some of the other cases, and we consider that a feature rather than a detriment.
Apple: Third Place
Despite being the creator of MagSafe, Apple’s wallet doesn’t get top marks in our roundup. However, it does get into our third-place slot.
It’s a rather basic wallet with minimal functionality that is surpassed by our top two selections. It has a thumb hole on the back to remove cards, and it can safely fit two cards on the inside.
Depending on the cards, you may fit three, but we’ve always found it a bit too tight to quickly get access while at a point of sale.
The second-generation Apple MagSafe wallet does work with Find My in a limited way. You will receive a detachment alert when the wallet gets removed from your phone.
While at home, you won’t see the alert. But, anytime the wallet comes off and you’re outside your whitelisted address, a popup will inform you the wallet has fallen off or was left behind.
In the Find My app, you can mark the wallet as lost so that if someone else comes upon it, they can get your information, but otherwise, that’s the extent of Find My support.
Peak Design: Second Place
There’s no wallet on the list like Peak Design. It doesn’t use the same design that so many others use but instead looks like a little pouch on the back of your phone.
It’s formed from the same durable, technical material Peak Design uses on iPhone cases. We love the heathered grey aesthetic that differs from the usual leather and faux leather that most other cases use.
The pouch secures via a magnetic flap. It is very secure and much easier to access the cards within than a small finger hole in the back.
Not only does the flap secure your cards, but it also acts as an easy-pull tab that will eject the wallet’s contents. When you tug at it, a clever internal mechanism causes the cards to emerge by half an inch, making them easy to grab.
As a bonus, you can hold more than credit cards and your ID because of the ejection feature and pouch design. You can slot in business cards or cash as well.
This is easily the largest MagSafe wallet we’ve tested. Not by the physical size but by how much it can hold within. You can probably fit 6-8 cards, depending on their thickness.
If that wasn’t enough, the Peak Design wallet also can act as a stand. It folds open to hold up your iPhone in portrait or landscape orientations.
ESR: First Place
Rounding out the list as our current favorite MagSafe wallet, we have the newly-released ESR Geo Wallet & Stand.
This isn’t the smallest of the wallets but is — by far — the most functional. On the back of the wallet is a pop-out finger loop to help secure your phone.
It’s almost like a PopSocket but built into a wallet. When you don’t need it, it sits flush into the back.
ESR designed its wallet to fit three cards, which for most, is the perfect amount. You could store a credit card, debit card, and an ID, or perhaps a payment card, an ID, and a metro pass.
Whatever combination, three seems ideal, and they fit perfectly. A recession at the bottom is cut away so you can push the cards up and pull out.
Like many others, the ESR Geo Wallet & Stand does, shockingly, act as a stand as well. It pivots out and works in either orientation.
Most unique, and why it tops our list, is its full support for Find My. Not even Apple supports Find My to this degree.
The ESR wallet is a full-on AirTag replacement with Bluetooth tracking, left-behind alerts, and a built-in speaker to help you find it. It is incredibly robust and helps ensure you never misplace your wallet.
