These magnetic iPhone 12 mounts show why MagSafe is its biggest camera upgrade Moment iPhone 12

As soon as we saw the iPhone 12‘s new MagSafe connector our minds started whirring with ideas about how it could be used – and Moment has already provided a very promising answer with its new range of tripod mounts.

While we’re sure to see some more extreme accessories like games controllers in the future, photographic MagSafe add-ons certainly make a lot of sense – in fact, magnetic friends like the ones in Moment’s new range might just be prove to be the iPhone 12’s biggest camera upgrade.

Despite a new brighter f/1.6 lens on its main camera and the arrival of night mode on all three of its cameras, the iPhone 12 isn’t a huge photographic leap over its predecessor. But MagSafe opens up the possibility of adding some genuinely useful, fuss-free accessories to help amplify its camera talents.

The four photography-related ones Moment has announced are understandably pretty basic. There are two MagSafe tripod mounts for the iPhone 12 – a simple $39.99 (around £30 / AU$55) one that connects to any standard 1/4-inch tripod or handle, and lets you shoot in landscape or portrait, plus a more interesting $49.99 (about £40 / AU$70) Pro Tripod Mount.
