If you're somebody who talks on the phone a lot while you're driving, or uses your iPhone for navigation, it's a good idea to get a car mount. That way you can drive safely with two hands always on the wheel. If you have an iPhone 12 — any model — you can also take advantage of its magnetic back. We've rounded up all the best car mounts that can magnetically hold your iPhone 12 in place while you drive.
This is a wireless charger and car mount combo. The wireless charger is detachable, meaning you can take it out of your car and use as regular wireless charging pad in your home.
The Snap Vent mount is not a wireless charger. It simply attaches to your car vent and magnetically holds your iPhone 12 in place. It comes with a magnetic adhesive (called a Snap Adapter) that you can attach to the back of an older iPhone (that doesn't have MagSafe) so that it will magnetically stick to the mount.
This car mount is fully compatible with MagSafe — Apple even sells it. It attaches to a car vent and, thanks to its rotating ball joint, you can adjust the positioning of your iPhone. Note: this doesn't charge your iPhone via MagSafe, so you'll want to have a Lightning cable in your car, too.
