11. Moment Cold Shoe Mount with MagSafe
Moment has released several awesome MagSafe accessories for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. My favorite of them all is the new Cold Shoe mount that allows you to connect third-party accessories like lights and microphones. I like the camera quality of iPhone 12 and 12 Pro and consider them to be the best video recording smartphones on the market right now.
However, by the nature of being a smartphone, the mic quality is not that good. So, attaching a mic is always a good practice if you want the best recordings. This Cold Shoe mount allows you to do exactly that. And if you shoot a lot in the dark, you will be happy to know that you can also attach lights. If you use your iPhone as a video recording took, purchase this mount.
Buy from Moment: $29.99
12. Moment Tripod Mount with MagSafe
No matter how good you are at hand-held videography and photography, using a tripod for stabilization will always give you better results. That said, I mostly avoid using tripods as they are too cumbersome to attach and remove. The new MagSafe technology in iPhone solves this problem by allowing third-party creators to create magnetic mounts for tripods.
And Moment has done the same. It has released a premium tripod mound that works with MagSafe on iPhone. The mount securely attaches your iPhone 12 and 12 Pro to your favorite tripods. The mount works with any standard 1/4”-20 tripods or handles. And it works in both portrait and landscape modes.
With this mount, you will no longer have to use clamps to attach the tripods. It solves the same problem that the MagSafe wireless car charging mounts for iPhone 12 and 12 Pro solve when you are driving a car, that is allowing you to mount your iPhone without dealing with clamps.
To ensure that your phone doesn’t fall off the tripod, this mount comes with Moment’s proprietary (M)Force magnet array that is even stronger than standard accessories. So, you can stick your iPhone without the fear of it detaching from the tripod.
Buy from Moment: $39.99
Note: If you love the above two mounts from Moment and are thinking of buying them, you can buy the Moment Pro tripod mound instead ($49.99) that allows you to do both things.
13. Moment Multi-Threaded Mount with MagSafe
If you want a MagSafe mount that allows you to attach your iPhone to anything including, magic arms, tripods, rig mounts, ball heads, and more, check out the multi-threaded mount with MagSafe. The mount comes with five female threads on one side and extra strong magnets on the other side, ensuring that your iPhone has a secure connection.
It includes (2) 3/8” female threads and (3) 1/4”-20 female threads allowing you to mount your phone wherever you want using any 1/4”-20 or 3/8” accessory. Using a machined metal body, the mount is durable and can last for a long time. So, if you have any existing accessories that work with these threads, you can now use them with your iPhone 12 and 12 Pro.
Buy from Moment: $29.99
14. Moment Wall Mount with MagSafe
If you want to buy a simple wall mount that allows you to attach your iPhone 12 and 12 Pro to walls or any flat surface for that matter, check out the MagSafe wall mount from Moment. The wall mount has strong magnets on one side and an adhesive on the other. You can stick the adhesive side to any flat surface and then use MagSafe magnets to attach the iPhone.
The mount even has a countersunk through-hole so you can screw it into a stud or drywall anchor if you want. So, if you don’t trust the adhesive, you can permanently fix it to the wall and make sure that it doesn’t fall off the wall.

Bonus: PITAKA MagEZ Case
PITAKA is well-known for producing one of the best magnetic cases for smartphones. And its MagEZ case for iPhone 12/12 Pro has got all the qualities to warrant immediate attention.
Probably the biggest highlight of this case is the top-grade aramid fiber material (body armor material) that endows the casing maximum strength without adding any unnecessary bulk (0.03-inch thickness). Courtesy of the 3D grip, the case fits snuggly in the palm ensuring there is less chance of accidental slip-offs.
The incorporation of built-in magnets enables it to work with magnetic car mounts. As a result, you can install your smartphone on a supported mount to have convenient viewing angles. More importantly, the built-in magnets don’t interfere with wireless charging.
That being said, the magnets in this case are not for MagSafe, but rather for working with its own car mounts. And that’s why this case is in bonus and not in the list.
