Incipio's Duo case for the iPhone 14 is a great option for those looking for a MagSafe-compatible case. The case is made of a soft-touch material that feels great in the hand and provides good grip. The case also features a raised bezel around the screen to protect it from scratches and other damage. The Incipio Duo case is a great option for those looking for a MagSafe-compatible case for their iPhone 14.
- EASE OF USE
Duo for MagSafe iPhone 14 Case is a must-have accessory for daily use.
This time last year, I reviewed a case for my iPhone 13 Pro from Incipio called the Duo. This dual-layer case provided sufficient protection for my phone, but was lacking the MagSafe functionality that I desired. I mentioned in that review that Incipio made another version of the case that was MagSafe compatible. I had the chance to test it out with an iPhone 14 Pro Max with this year’s case releases.
The Duo for MagSafe case takes the best-selling Duo case and adds built-in magnets so that it can be used with Apple’s MagSafe chargers and accessories. Duo for MagSafe combines a minimalistic design — a two-piece protective case — with maximum protection — drop-protection up to 12 feet. The case also features an antimicrobial treatment that prevents 99.9% of surface bacteria. The Duo for MagSafe works with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 models.

The Duo for MagSafe comes in a simple, clean retail box with Incipio branding on it. The front of the box has a transparent window so users can view the product inside. There are a few details about the phone included (i.e. 12 ft. drop tested, raised edge protects the screen, etc.) along with the “Made with Recycled Material” emblem at the bottom.
One of the other features of the package I noticed was the sticker on the top right-hand corner that reads, “Buy this accessory and plant a tree.” This seems to go along with Incipio’s sustainability program which includes their recycling program and using recycled materials.
As the name suggests, the Duo for MagSafe is a two-layer case. The inner layer is pliable and easily wraps around the phone while the outer layer is a harder shell that snaps into place around the inner wrap. The hard shell case does have a soft feel to it which makes it easy to grip. The Duo for MagSafe iPhone 14 Case seems to protect the phone well and it has a clean, classy look.
In testing the case with a MagSafe charger, I’m happy to say that the phone did not fall off the charger like the other Duo case does. The built-in magnets in the Duo for MagSafe case do a good job of holding the case securely on the charging surface and allows the phone to charge while it is in place.
There are lots of cases to choose from out there but the sleek, minimalist design of the Duo for MagSafe makes it a frontrunner in my mind. The case is easy to grip and it’s very easy to install the phone into it. It’s a great value for what you get.
