The iPhone 13 mini is the perfect little phone for many of us, and the MagSafe ring that allows the use of a MagSafe charger and other accessories is one of its many appealing features. However, if you use a regular iPhone case, it can interfere with MagSafe technology. So, if you want to take full advantage of all the MagSafe has to offer, be sure to snag one of the best MagSafe cases for iPhone 13 mini.
We love Apple's cases. They always fit perfectly, work as expected, and look amazing, not to mention that coveted Apple logo on the back. Choose from an array of colors designed to perfectly match or set off the color of your iPhone 13 mini.
You can clearly see the ring of magical magnets on this nicely-priced slim protective case. Choose the totally clear option shown here, or pick one with a hint of color around the edges.
This svelte clear case from Speck has reinforced corners and raised bezels to protect your iPhone 13 mini, but it also has Microban antimicrobial properties to protect you. It's tested to withstand up to 8-foot drops.
Protective air-pocket corners and a soft microfiber lining help keep your iPhone 13 mini safe from damage. Textured, extra-grippy edges will help keep you from dropping it. Choose from several color and design options.
This rugged case is drop-tested for up to two meters (6.6 feet). Plus, you can feel good about your purchase because it's made from 45% recycled materials. Choose from several color options.
Add a little bling to your iPhone 13 mini with this pretty case. It's got 10-foot drop protection, and it's made from recycled materials. Don't worry; the iridescent glitter foil is completely inside the case, so you won't feel any texture, and it won't lose its sparkle.
This beauty is wrapped in NOMAD's signature Horween vegetable-tanned leather that comes in several natural colors. The leather will develop a warm patina over time. The case offers 10-foot drop protection.
Camera lens protection
Are you concerned about scratching your camera lens? Worry no more; this case has a sliding cover to protect your camera when not in use. Just slide open the cover when you want to take a photo. I like the general look and feel of the Nillkin CamShield Pro case, which I've reviewed in the past. In my review, I noted that's it's well-priced and slim yet protective.
Spoiled for choice
CASETiFY MagSafe Cases come in an extraordinary selection of options. Choose your materials, your protection level, and your style. You're not even limited to the thousands of artistic designs you see on CASETiFY's website because you can upload your own. When we reviewed CASETiFY's MagSafe case we absolutely loved it — and you will too.
Get a slim, clear MagSafe case plus a MagSafe wallet in a few color options for one low price. Just pop the wallet off when it's time to use your MagSafe charger and then pop it back on when you head out. It'll hold up to three cards.
While it lacks the nifty Apple logo, it's nearly a dupe for the Apple Silicone Case. The silicone case is smooth to the touch yet offers a decent grip. The inside is lined with microfiber to prevent scratches. Choose from several color options.
Full body protection
This rugged case offers front-to-back 360° protection with a 9H tempered glass screen protector built right in. It meets military drop-test standards, protecting your iPhone 13 mini against damage from drops of up to 10 feet.
Do you need a MagSafe case for your iPhone 13 mini?
Do you really need a MagSafe case, per se? In order to fully utilize the MagSafe charging feature, such as with an Apple MagSafe charger, and other great MagSafe accessories, yes, you need to pick up a MagSafe specific case.
It's true that MagSafe chargers will work with any of the best iPhone 13 mini cases, just as any wireless charger does. But unless the case is made explicitly for MagSafe, you won't get that magnetic attachment. So, that means you won't be able to use it with MagSafe charging stands, MagSafe wallets, or other accessories.
Which of the best MagSafe cases for iPhone 13 mini is for you?
We are always fond of the cases that Apple releases along with its latest iPhone lineups. The Apple iPhone 13 mini Silicone Case with MagSafe is no exception. You can choose one that matches your iPhone perfectly or contrasts beautifully for a more striking look. "Try on" all of the different colors with your particular iPhone color on Apple's website before you buy. If you find a color you love, don't wait; because Apple does change out some color options seasonally.
If you're not looking to spend that much money, check out the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Mag Compatible with MagSafe Designed for iPhone 13 Mini Case, which is an updated version of the Spigen Ultra Hybrid case with MagSafe compatibility added. It looks a lot like Apple's Clear Case with MagSafe, but it's less than half the price and even comes in a few color options.
