    So I picked up the MagSafe popsocket attachment today. I was all excited to use it… then it says not to use on bare phone 🤨. That’s the whole reason I wanted use this thing ugh. I did test it out on the bare phone and it sticks pretty darn good. I wonder if it’s just a statement so they aren’t responsible for broken phones if the attachment slips off

    Just found this article that gives a little insight: https://www.theverge.com/22445808/ma...stick-adhesive

    Short answer: the slippery back of the iPhone means it could dislodge a bit too easily. Looks like your best bet is to use an Apple Magsafe case that has magnets of its own and a stickier surface.

    I did see that article but he’s like aggressively flicking his wrist. I’m just trying to hold the phone normal but take a little pressure off my pinky lol

    That’s frustrating to be sure! Do you think that you will keep it?

    A super-thin MagSafe case is all you'll need to use it. I have the MagSafe Wallet+ and use a MagSafe Nomad leather case and it's the perfect combo since the magnet on the wallet is super-strong when used with a case.

    My wife had a bunch of popsockets so I just got her a Magsafe disk from Amazon that the socket attaches to with adhesive. Her phone is in an Otterbox MagSafe case, but the popsocket disk stays firmly on the phone. I hear the official popsocket magsafe is even stronger, maybe that is due to the size. Comparing the Amazon disk on my leather case vs here Otterbox, I can definitely see how the friction of a case vs glass would create a difference in the shaking kind of scenario, but normal use I would think it would be fine.

    Looking to get the pop socket that wraps around the device don’t know if I trust the mag safe to hold it on.
