Elevated charging

Many of the best MagSafe charging stands use magnets to suspend the iPhone at a comfortable viewing angle. In contrast, others work with your existing MagSafe charger to serve the same purpose. The best is the Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger, which can also charge the best Apple Watches, an AirPods case, and an iPhone simultaneously. Of course, this one is only suitable if you have all those devices.

If that choice seems a little expensive, many charging stands work with your Apple MagSafe charger to suspend the iPhone while it charges. One example is the elago MS2 Charging Stand, which is more affordable than other choices on this list. Again, you'll have to decide which will work best for you and your devices.

MagSafe is supported on the iPhone 12 and above, such as the iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and many of the best iPhones.
