All of Moment's new gear is up for preorder on Moment's website with delivery starting in March and is geared towards photographers as well as everyday users. It marks the first major accessory maker to launch a MagSafe line following Apple partner Belkin.

Moment MagSafe cases

Moment will have two cases available that support MagSafe and fit iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. A thin case and a more protective case.

The Moment Thin case has a great soft-touch finish and is made from a bio-plastic that is better for the environment. It has a wrist strap connector at the bottom and is compatible with Moment's drop-in M-Series lens mount.

if you want something more protective, the Moment Protective case is the option. It has a dual-material design and includes different back materials such as wood. The bottom is also fully enclosed, unlike the Thin case. It too has a wrist strap anchor and support for the M-Series lens mount.

With the drop-in M-series lens interface, both cases are compatible with Moment's full lineup of professional mobile lenses including a wide-angle, anamorphic, tele, and more.

Both cases support MagSafe and include integrated magnets in the cases themselves. They have six feet of drop protection, a lifetime warranty, and include the lens mounting interface in the box.

These will run $49.99.

Moment Tripod mounts

Outside of cases, we have the Moment Tripod mounts for MagSafe. There are two distinct models, a standard model and a pro model that includes a cold shoe mount for connecting accessories like lights and microphones.

This securely attaches to the back of any iPhone 12 model via MagSafe and includes extra-strong magnets to create an even better drop. Something Moment calls its (M) Force magnet array.

It works with or without a case and works in either portrait or landscape orientations. Moment's Tripod and Pro Tripod can mount to any 1/4"-20 tripod, are made from solid aluminum, and have padded contact points to protect your phone.

The Moment Tripod Mount and Moment Pro Tripod Mount run $39.99 and $49.99 respectively.

Cold shoe mount

The Moment Cold Shoe Mount is a great way to mount various accessories to the back of an iPhone 12. It has a slim aluminum construction, a padded contact point to the back of the phone, and extra-strong (M) Force magnets.

Many photography and videography accessories rely on a cold shoe to mount and now this feature comes to iPhone without the need for a clamp or additional grip. Perfect for microphones, lights, and more.

This retails for $29.99.

More mounts

Moment is also introducing other universal mounts.

There is the Moment Multi Threaded Mount, also known as a cheese plate, which has four 1/4"-20 female threads as well as two 3/8-inch female threads. Use this to connect tripods, arms, rigs, ballheads, and more to your iPhone. It is priced at $29.99.

Finally, Moment has a 3M adhesive mount that can go onto your desk, monitor, dash, wall, et cetera. It has a countersunk hole for mounting with a screw as well. For in the car, there is the Moment Car Vent Mount. This has a vent clip on the back and a very slim design.

The Moment Car Vent Mount runs $29.99 and the wall mount is $19.99.

    Some great early products supporting that very clever magsafe feature, can't wait to see more roll out over the coming weeks/months.

    Looks great but do they really expect me to wait until March?! The world could literally be over by then!

    We're hoping to ship by January, but would rather ship early than late. These aren't off the shelf magnets, so things could slip to march if we need more sample rounds to test. - Alex from Moment

    My greatest interest will be in a car charger. And I like vent mounts but find the typical vent mount always loosens its grip early on.

    First, this is disclaimer: I'm writing this because TechMatte is offering a free Wireless Charger for a review. I may or may not be getting one from TechMatte, however, believe me or not, I am telling the truth about my experience with their screen protector.


    First, the installation was very easy because of the alignment trade that came with the kit. I used a different screen protector from ESR but it left large bubbles on the screen. Yes, there were few dust particles on the screen but there were the same amount with the TechMatte. The adhesive on the TechMatte held down better around the 4 dust particles than the ESR to the point you can barely see the dust particles. There are so many screen protector on the market and for the most part, they are all pretty much the same. But I did find the TechMatte alignment trade very useful and it seems to provide good adhesion to the iPhone screen.


    The screen protector was purchased through Amazon under "amFilm Glass Screen Protector Compatible or iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7" Display, 2020), Tempered Glass with Easy Installation Tray (3 Pack)".
