Accessory-maker Moment unveiled a variety of mounts to help photographers make better use the very advanced cameras built into the iPhone 12 series. These employ the MagSafe magnetic-connection system built into Apple’s newest handsets.
There’s also a new lineup of MagSafe-compatible iPhone 12 cases from Moment.
Moment MagSafe mounts are extra safe
MagSafe puts magnets around the wireless charging coil of the iPhone 12 series. These automatically align the iPhone to its wireless charger. But accessory-makers have already found other uses for the magnets. It’s used in these tripod mounts, for example. “Whether you are new to mobile photography or a pro filmmaker, we believe MagSafe will be more accessible than any of the current phone clamp solutions,” says Moment. And the company’s (M)Force mounts add onto Apple’s solution with a grippy backer pad.
Its top-of-the-line model is the Pro Tripod Mount with MagSafe ($49.99). This can make any tripod compatible with the iPhone 12 series. There’s a built-in cold shoe mount to adding a light or microphone. A landscape-only version is available for the same price.
Or photographers who work without tripods can go with the Cold Shoe Mount with MagSafe ($29.99).
Note that while these Moment MagSafe mounts have been announced, none will be available until March 2021. They can be pre-ordered now, though.

Moment also took the wraps off a collection of cases for the various iPhone 12 models. There are versions for the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini all the way up the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. These all support MagSafe too.
New offerings include versions of the Thin Case ($49.99) that offers a “super-thin body with soft-to-the-touch texture,” according to Moment. Plus, the company’s standard case ($49.99) is available covered in in a range of materials, like black canvas and walnut wood.
Again, these won‘t reach customers’ hands until March 2021, though they can be pre-ordered today.
