Nomad’s iPhone 12 Cases Now Work with Apple MagSafe

Nomad’s phone cases are some of the best, most refined, and most protective on the market. But when Nomad first introduced their iPhone 12 cases, they weren’t specifically designed to work with Apple’s new MagSafe charging system. The company has now released a line of Rugged Cases specifically designed to work with MagSafe for iPhone 12.

Nomad iPhone 12 cases with MagSafe

As Nomad puts it,

We feature a full range of cases for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Whether you’re looking for a minimalist case, a folio to replace your wallet, or maximum drop protection, we have a case for you.

The new cases are available for all four iPhone 12 models. And while they look similar to the iPhone 12 cases we reviewed a few months ago, the addition of the MagSafe charging makes them even better! Like the original iPhone 12 offerings, the new cases are available in Rustic Brown, Black or Natural. Made from Nomad’s Horween leather, the cases look great out of the box and get better with age as they develop a patina.

Like the cases they replace, the new iPhone 12 cases have an integrated shock absorbing bumper. This may not look like a rugged case but it will protect your iPhone from a drop of up to 10’.

The Rugged Folio MagSafe is available for the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone Pro Max. It has an MSRP of $79.95.

The Rugged case is also available for all four models of the iPhone 12. It has an MSRP of $59.95.

Of course, the new MagSafe compatible cases are replacing Nomad’s initial offerings for the iPhone 12 going forward.


  • Crafted from Horween Leather
  • Integrated shock absorption bumper offering 10 foot drop protection
  • Rugged Case Colors: Brown, Black, or Natural
  • Rugged Folio Colors: Black or Brown
  • Rugged Case MSRP: $59.95
  • Rugged Folio MSRP: $79.95

The only thing more reliable than Nomad’s cables are their cases. They also look fantastic right out of the box, do a great job protecting your phone and develop their own personality over time. Check them out here.
