One of the best ways to use MagSafe on iPhone is to make it carry your wallet. It means you don’t have to remember to pick up multiple items every time you leave the house, and it ensures that you always have access to credit and ID cards that you can’t carry virtually in the Apple Wallet app.

Now that we’ve had MagSafe for a few years, there are lots of great wallets to choose from. Here are six of the best that you can slap onto the back of your iPhone today.

Picking the best MagSafe wallet for iPhone

Picking a MagSafe wallet is pretty simple. Although there are plenty of different models to choose from these days, you can quickly whittle down your options by first deciding what kind of wallet you’d want to carry around all day.

Do you want a wallet that’s super-slim and won’t get in your way? Do you want a wallet that’s tough and doesn’t mind taking a tumble? Do you want a wallet that doubles as a stand, or a grip that makes your iPhone easier to hold? Whatever the case may be, you’ll find the perfect pick below.

For a MagSafe wallet that ticks all the boxes, check out the OtterBox Detachable Wallet. Made from a synthetic leather, it looks and feels great, and unlike most of its rivals, it carries three credit cards instead of just two. What’s more, it makes those cards super-easy to get to.

Instead of cramming them all into one pocket, the OtterBox Detachable Wallet has three separate sleeves for each card, so you can get to the one you want without removing them all. It’s somewhat pricey at just under $40, but it’s nicely designed and well-built.

If it’s real leather you’re after and you won’t settle for anything less, avoid the Apple Store. Instead, pick up the genuine leather MagWallet from SwitchEasy. It’s almost identical to the one Apple used to sell, but more affordable at under $35.

The MagWallet holds two cards, feels terrific, and — like all good leather products — only gets more attractive over time. Its strong stitching and integrated manganese steel plate makes it incredibly strong, and it’s surprisingly thin at under 7mm. Check out our full review for more.
