Best MagSafe cases for iPhone 13 in 2024

The iPhone 13 might not be the latest model any more, but it's still a great all-around phone. One of the features we love that continues on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro is MagSafe. This ring of magnets inside the phone allows a MagSafe charger or other accessory to click securely into place. However, a case can interfere with that ability unless you use a specifically MagSafe-compatible case. 

Here are some of the best MagSafe cases for iPhone 13 you can buy, so you can take advantage of all those great accesories. We also have the best iPhone 13 cases in general to check out.

Which of the best MagSafe cases for iPhone 13 should you choose?

Why do you even need a MagSafe-specific case for the iPhone 13 in order to use those great MagSafe accessories? You can technically use any of the best iPhone 13 cases as long as they don't have built-in grips or wallets on the back with MagSafe chargers, just as you would with any wireless charger. 

However, you won't get that satisfying click, and you won't get a strong connection unless you use a MagSafe case specifically. And you won't be able to use other kinds of MagSafe accessories, such grips or wallets, unless you have a MagSafe case.

Using a MagSafe-compatible case lets you use MagSafe charging stands, MagSafe car charging mounts, MagSafe grips, MagSafe wallets, and more. So it's worth getting a MagSafe case if you ever plan to use any MagSafe accessories.

The classic Apple Silicone Case with MagSafe is always a no-brainer option; you can still pick it up at the Apple Store or order it online, even if you can't buy an iPhone 13 direct from Apple any more. Since it's designed by team Apple, you know it will always hug the iPhone's curves perfectly and work the way you'd expect. Each year's case lineup is specially designed to enhance that year's iPhone colors, so you can choose a dynamite color combination.

If you're looking for a bargain, you can't get much better than the LDHTY 2 Pack for iPhone 13 Case, Magnetic Clear Cases Compatible with MagSafe. While the case itself is pretty basic, you do get clear protection and MagSafe compatibility. Best of all, you're getting two of them for one very low price, so you can share with a friend or keep a spare handy.
