Best Magnetic iPhone XR Cases iMore 2022

Yes, you could always add a magnetic sticker onto the back of your existing iPhone case to make it magnetic, but that's no way to treat your beautiful, high-end phone! Opt for a sleek case with a magnet already included to make life easier and maintain the elegant look of your iPhone XR.


Gorgeous finishes: Mous Limitless 2.0

Available in five classic materials, the Limitless 2.0 case uses embedded magnets to attach to a few compatible accessories that are available directly from Mous.

A Question of Cases

Whatever your style or budget, there's a great magnetic iPhone case for you on this list. I'm partial to the Mous Limitless 2.0 because it has endless customization possibilities and it's easy on the eyes. The optional magnetic card clip and strategic placement of the internal metal plate to allow for wireless charging are also huge perks.

The Case Mate Tough Grip with its 10-foot drop protection and grippy edges is also tempting if, like me, you're a bit of a klutz. If you want to show off your iPhone XR's bright color, the JIDUO clear case's oblong metal ring adds functionality and security without compromising design.
