Top iPhone 12 accessories, this list could go on and on, but I want to focus on what I use on a daily basis and would recommend to you. These are products I have used since the launch of the iPhone 12 and a few that I have had for a little while at this point. If you have some recommended products leave a comment below. FYI I am using an iPhone 12 Pro Max.
As much as I would like to use a phone with a case and screen protector, I just like to make sure my phone is free of blemishes. I will end up selling the phone at some point and the better condition the better price I can list the device for. That said, I also love that Apple has created MagSafe. MagSafe has added an extra level of functionality that goes beyond just protecting a phone.
My favorite case that I have used since day one is the official leather case by Apple. It’s got MagSafe built-in and allows you to magnetically attach cases and other accessories.
In the past with wireless chargers, you had to line the phone up just right for it to start charging. Also, at times the phone could slide off the dedicated area of charging. MagSafe keeps the phone in place while charging.
My next choice of a case is the Nomad Rugged case. I LOVE this case because of the leather and rugged design. It’s the case I used for the majority of the time I had the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
MagSafe all the things! The minimalist part of me LOVES this wallet. I didn’t think I was going to like this as much as I do, but it’s legit great. I appreciate the minimal amount of items in my pocket. I only need my ID, credit, and debit card. it does not fall off and I toss it in my front door basket at home when I am not using it. It also adds some grip to the massive iPhone 12 Pro Max. $60 seems steep, but it is worth it IMO.
If you’re gonna get the new iPhone 12, you’ve got to get the new MagSafe charger. It’s almost like the iPhone 12 isn’t complete without it. It’s fast wireless charging, attaches attractively, and you can charge wirelessly while using the phone.

The iPhone 12 does not come with a charger. Apple claims this will help reduce waste and honestly I am ok with this move. However, if you need a charger brick, check out Aukey’s options.
AirPods now come in a few flavors. AirPods gen 2, AirPods Pro, and just announced AirPods Max. Personally, I really like the gen 2 and plan to get the AirPods Max. The Max is definitely expensive but audio is one of those things you get what you pay for, but Apple is for sure a luxury brand at this point. I also plan to use the Max for video and audio editing. Review to come soon.
I can’t use a smartphone without a smartwatch. The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch you can get for an iPhone. Not much has changed over the years, but I am enjoying the latest generation with the handwashing timer, fast charging, and large display.
Apple recently launched the HomePod mini, which has been my favorite smart speaker to date. Don’t let the small size fool you, this thing can put out some sound! It’s got some neat features such as music handoff and automation. The AirPlay options are great to use for computer speakers.
It seems like Apple is trapping me into their ecosystem more and more. The continuity is key.
