With the advent of MagSafe for iPhone, several new accessories have arrived. Twelve South has created two such MagSafe accessories to eliminate the quirks of MagSafe chargers, increase their overall beauty and provide additional features.
What are your habits, do you ask? The MagSafe Charger is well designed, but it has a strong magnetic disk that requires the use of both hands to unplug the device. Both Forté and Stone’r easily solve this problem, but are these MagSafe stands worth the price?
At iGeeksBlog, everyone is a big fan of Twelve South products and has reviewed many of them. So I have great expectations for them. Dive in without any more effort to find out more about these products.
1. Stone’r: Great design 😉
Stone’r is designed primarily to be the savior when charging your iPhone wirelessly using MagSafe, and as the name implies, it’s a cool stone-inspired stand. I am not joking! It also allows you to charge your device the way it should, without the ridiculous effort of removing it from MagSafe.
Learn more about its design and practicality!
Stone’r by Twelve South is a cute little MagSafe charging stand carved in Banswara marble. Its design is delicate and aesthetically pleasing no matter where it is placed. In addition, there is a silicone housing for the MagSafe charger.
The height and width are not so large, and it fits well even when placed in a corner. The only problem is that it is a bit heavy in weight. Stone’r blends in regardless of the color of the tabletop or desk. But after all, there’s not much to say about stones.
Stone’r is more than visible. Make sure the silicone housing on your MagSafe charger is securely fastened. You will also be using MagSafe with one hand.
Marble is naturally heavy and weighs 1 kg, so Stone’r does not move around when placing or removing the device. In addition, it uses a non-slip silicone base to help prevent damage to the object on which it is placed.
Value of money
Well, it may seem over to those who don’t use MagSafe charging often, but it’s certainly a blessing in the guise of a stone! The struggle was real. However, you may find this an expensive accessory for your MagSafe stand.
- Eliminates the hassle of the MagSafe charger that sticks to your iPhone
- Provides altitude
- Delicate design
price: $ 39.99
2. Forte: Multiple problems, one solution
Designed for the iPhone 12 series and above, Forté is a cool MagSafe stand + iPhone stand that spins and offers more features than Stone’r (or am I prejudiced?). Either way, if you read more about it, you’ll understand why I’m saying that!
Forté is another MagSafe charging stand from Twelve South. The stand is a squirrel design (square base with circular edges). It also has silicone legs, and when combined with its weight (0.9lbs / 400g), the stand can be expected to be extremely sturdy.
The MagSafe housing comes with a silicone base so you can easily install your MagSafe charger. However, cable management can be an issue because there is not enough space allocated to route the cables.
The Forté MagSafe Charging Stand makes it easy to attach and detach your iPhone to and from your MagSafe charger. No more pulling your iPhone to disconnect it from the charger.
Another advantage of Forté is that MagSafe allows you to rotate your device both horizontally and vertically. In addition, Forté can rotate up to 70 ° at the top, making it an iPhone stand. The spinning top also allows you to charge your AirPods wirelessly.
Value of money

Are Stone’r and Forté the right companions for MagSafe?
Stone’r and Forté by Twelve South are MagSafe’s excellent charging stations, eliminating the hassle of pulling your iPhone away from the charger. Both of these products require a premium, but if you use MagSafe extensively, the problem you solve may be worth the money.
If you choose either, I personally choose Forté, which is more practical than Stone’r. Which do you need to get, depending on whether you need more practicality or aesthetics? In the comments, let us know which of these are more appealing to you.
