OtterBox Releases MagSafe iPhone Accessories at CES

An industry leader in smartphone protection, OtterBox releases a significant update to its original Defender, Figura, LifeProof, and Symmetry iPhone cases.

Now enhanced with Apple’s MagSafe magnetic mounting and Qi wireless tech, each new case gives iPhone 13 users a precise, flexible, and hard-wearing Qi-capable option.

True to form, OtterBox seems to cover all the bases in this rendition. Rugged urbanites, minimalist commuters, adventurous germaphobes — there’s something for every type of iPhone owner.

OtterBox MagSafe iPhone 13 Cases for 2022

OtterBox officially unveiled its MagSafe-compatible cases this week at the Consumer Electronics Show. As a bonus, the case-maker introduces a minimalist 3-in-1 MagSafe wireless Charging Station ($80), which can power an iPhone, Apple Watch, and set of AirPods simultaneously.

Here’s what each new MagSafe case has to offer.

LifeProof FRE MagSafe Case

LifeProof is OtterBox’s all-weather, all-terrain company. And the LifeProof FRE MagSafe case ($100) is like Fort Knox, but for your phone.

The integrated screen protector and 360-degree seal tech are waterproof to 6 feet for 1 hour and drop-absorbent from heights up to 6 feet. LifeProof makes each FRE for MagSafe using 50% recycled plastic to reduce its footprint.

Defender Series XT MagSafe Case

The Defender XT MagSafe case ($70) builds on OtterBox’s most popular rugged-duty shell.

This time, the Defender XT is trimmed down for the iPhone 13 but boasts the same five-times-the-military-standard DROP+ rating thanks to dual-layer protection.

Raised edges, port seals, secure grip, 50% recycled plastic construction, and various attachment points fill out its feature set.

Figura Series MagSafe Case

OtterBox bills its Figura MagSafe case ($50) as its artistic build.

As seen in other all-new cases, 50% recycled plastic makes up the flexible shell, available in a litany of graphic designs. It snaps on, is ultraslim, and features raised edges to bumper-guard your screen.

OtterBox Symmetry Series+ Clear Antimicrobial MagSafe Case

Slim and hyper-convenient, the Symmetry Series+ Antimicrobial MagSafe case ($60) uses 50% recycled plastic, integrated antimicrobial protection, and DROP+ impact protection.

With its fast clip-on design and open access to all of the iPhone’s ports and buttons, the Symmetry MagSafe case is OtterBox’s sleeker, light-duty option.
