Belkin’s iPhone Mount Now Available

One of the major features of iOS 16 and macOS 13 Ventura is Continuity Camera, which lets you use an iPhone as a Mac webcam (see “Continuity Camera Turns an iPhone Into a Mac Webcam,” 6 August 2022). To facilitate this new capability, accessory manufacturers have been working on products that let you neatly attach an iPhone to a Mac. The first of these is now available: Belkin’s iPhone Mount with MagSafe for Mac Notebooks for $29.95. As the name implies, it’s intended for Mac laptops, and the iPhone attaches via MagSafe, so you’ll need an iPhone 12 or later (other than the iPhone SE).

Cleverly, Belkin’s mount is multifunctional: it doubles as a kickstand and ring grip. And since it connects using MagSafe, you can easily attach and detach it as needed. Will you order one?

  1. Wonder if that will also fit on the Studio Display?

  2. Apparently, it will not. The Apple Store list of compatible displays only lists Mac laptops. The Belkin press release makes clear that there will be a different model for monitors and desktops. The desktop model won’t have the built-in ring grip and stand but will have a viewing angle adjustment.

    However, it’s not clear which version will work on pre-2021 iMacs, which have a laptop-like edge around the screen rather than a wider flat surface.
