The best iPhone 12 accessories protect your new iPhone, add new features, and keep your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro charged.
You’ll certainly want a new iPhone 12 case, but there are also new MagSafe accessories, quick chargers, excellent headphones and much more.
No matter which new iPhone you buy, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max or the iPhone 12 Mini – these accessories work for your iPhone.
We have tested new iPhone 12 accessories and based on our time with these great additions and our experience with the companies, we are confident that these are the best you can buy today.
Essential iPhone 12 Accessories
There are a few important iPhone 12 accessories that we believe everyone should own. We highlight them in the more comprehensive list, but would like to highlight them as the “must-haves” you should buy to get the most out of your new iPhone. They are:
Portable battery charger
A set of AirPods or wireless headphones is probably a must, but then we come to convenience rather than the essentials.
The three charging options are especially important because Apple has no charger in the box with the new iPhone and the new 5G connectivity can drain the battery faster.
Best iPhone 12 accessories
The best iPhone 12 accessories are not only sold by Apple or brought to you when you pick up your phone from a local retailer. After years of testing accessories and hands-on experience with new models, here are the ones we like best for the iPhone 2020 Remember that you don’t need all-in-one MagSafe accessories at this time. There are many great options available, but we’ll see more from third parties soon.
Aukey quick charger-$14.99
The Aukey Omnia Mini 20W USB C charger for iPhone costs less than $15, and it provides enough power to quickly charge the iPhone with the included cable. It also provides enough power for the MagSafe charger if you buy one.
We love the small size of this charger, which makes it perfect for traveling or for storing in a backpack. We’ve carried an earlier version of the Aukey USB C quick charger for a long time and it still works as good as it did on the first day.
Buy it at Amazon.
InvisibleShield screen protector – $39.99 and above
The InvisibleShield screen protectors are a bit expensive, but they provide excellent protection for the new iPhone 12 display, which still has scratches despite the new coating. We like the Glass Elite VisionGuard+, which combines a glass screen protector with a blue light filter and an antimicrobial treatment that keeps your phone’s screen clean.
These screen protectors are very easy to install and come with a lifetime replacement warranty as long as you own your phone. If you break the screen protector, simply pay for shipping and InvisibleShield will send you a new protector.
Buy from Zagg, Amazon, Verizon and Best Buy.
Nomad Base Station Stand $99.95
The Nomad Base Station Stand is a beautiful wireless desktop charger that is perfect for the iPhone 12 models. The charger looks fantastic, is very stable and has a weighted foot. We love that it holds the iPhone at the perfect angle for video calls and charges wirelessly when the phone is in landscape mode to watch YouTube or stream a video.
Thanks to the wireless charging positions, the stand also charges AirPods and AirPods Pro headphones, as well as any other Qi charger suitable for charging Qi. There is a small charging indicator light on the front so you know your device is charging.
Buy from Nomad.
Mophie battery packs – $59.95 and higher
Two Mophie battery packs stand out as great options for your new iPhone. The first is our latest go-to battery pack, the Mophie powerstation plus XL. This is an 8,000 mAh battery pack that includes an integrated flash cable, wireless charging and a USB port for charging another device. The battery is recharged via a flash cable, so you do not need to carry any other type of cable with you.
We also like the look of the new Mophie Juice Pack Connect. This is a removable 5,000 mAh battery that charges your phone wirelessly and snaps into place with the included anchor for charging on the go without a cable hanging out of your pocket. When not charging, you can attach the supplied ring to the anchor and use it as a handle or stand.
