Some older devices or iPhone 12 cases that aren’t equipped with built-in magnets, this SwitchEasy recently came out with a series of “MagEasy” accessories that are designed to add MagSafe compatibility to old devices or iPhone.

The brilliant MagDoka add-on brings Apple’s new magnetic accessory system to any iPhone. Simply stick it to the back of your device and it’s ready to go.

The MagDoka is a circle-shaped magnetic ring that attaches to an iPhone or an ‌iPhone‌ case using adhesive. At 2mm in thickness, the MagDoka doesn’t add a lot of bulk to an ‌iPhone‌, and in my testing, it adhered well and didn’t budge, even when used with an upright ‌MagSafe‌ charger that caused a similar product to lose its adhesive.

The MagDoka needs to be placed in a specific spot on an older ‌iPhone‌, in order to keep from blocking charging capabilities. There are guides for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, and all four iPhone 12 models. Furthermore,  SwitchEasy includes a series of templates that ensure accurate positioning.

There’s a cutout where the MagDoka accessory needs to be placed to be in line with the wireless charging coil inside the ‌iPhone‌, so the idea is to peel off the appropriate guide for your ‌iPhone‌ and then line it up accurately on the back of the device.

For making sure the surface of the ‌iPhone‌ is free from dust and grime before the MagDoka is placed to ensure the best adhesion, that is where we use the SwitchEasy tools.

Furthermore, the ‌iPhone‌ or the ‌iPhone‌ case will be able to attach to ‌MagSafe‌ accessories and chargers. Adding a magnet to an ‌iPhone 11‌ will let it work with ‌MagSafe‌ items, but when it comes to charging, it’s not going to charge faster. ‌iPhone 11‌ models are limited to a maximum of 7.5W charging when charged with ‌MagSafe‌ chargers, unlike ‌iPhone 12‌ models that can charge at up to 15W (12W for iPhone 12 mini).

Applying the Mogadoka is simple and made iPhone 11 Pro Max compatible with the ‌MagSafe‌ chargers that are on hand for the ‌iPhone 12‌, so this is an accessory that’s convenient in a mixed device household. It’s also useful if you have a case without ‌MagSafe‌ that you just can’t live without.

With the Magadoka in place, there’s another MagEasy accessory, the MagStand. When attached to an ‌iPhone 11‌ or ‌iPhone 12‌, it adds ‌MagSafe‌ connectivity but as the name suggests, it also has a fold out stand option.

Since it has ‌MagSafe‌ capability built in, You can fold up the bottom portion of the MagStand to turn it into a little ‌iPhone‌ stand that can prop an ‌iPhone‌ up in landscape mode, it works with ‌MagSafe‌ accessories when unfolded.

SwitchEasy also makes a series of MagSafe cases specifically designed for the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup. Made from clear or black plastic, the cases are malleable and have a magnetic ring at the back to make them compatible with ‌MagSafe‌ accessories. The cases are priced at $24.99 to $29.99.

Both the MagDoka and the MagStand are made from leather and are available in pink, blue, and black, and these accessories are lightweight and unassuming when placed on an ‌iPhone‌ or a case. I preferred the design of the MagDoka to the MagStand just because it takes up less real estate on the back of an ‌iPhone‌.
