PopSockets announces that they are making their iconic phone holders compatible with MagSafe. When Apple announced that accessories could be attached to the iPhone 12 with MagSafe, many immediately thought of PopSockets – including the company itself, which announced that they were working on adding compatibility. Now it’s finally at the point where an announcement and a release window are posted.
PopSockets plans to bring MagSafe to quite a few of the products, but first, of course, is the famous PopGrip. Now, if you want to charge your phone wirelessly, you do not need to buy PopSockets specialized wireless charger. The MagSafe version will have a larger base than many PopSockets users may be used to, which is likely to make room for the “non-slip”
When we talk about wallets, PopSockets also announces a magnetic version of PopWallet Plus, which is actually a wallet with a built-in PopSocket. Like Apple’s version, it will contain a shield that is meant to protect all cards that can be erased by magnets.
In addition, PopSockets reveals two parties that will use MagSafe: one for the home (called “Multi-Surface”) and one for the car. The company notes that the new PopGrips will work with existing PopSocket mounts, but the new mounts will work magnetically, although it is not clear if they will also use PopSocket as an additional mechanical grip.
The press release had some other notable products, including an antimicrobial version of PopGrip (it’s a sign of the times), and a multi-tool PopGrip which is a collaboration with the famous knife maker SOG. PopGrip and PopWallet Plus for MagSafe are scheduled to launch in the spring of 2021, and PopMounts will arrive in the summer. No words have been released about prices.
