Popular iPhone 12 accessory has a BIG design flaw

While the iPhone 12 range has proven popular from a design perspective, with fans and reviewers alike praising its sleek, sharp-edged shape, the same can't quite be said for its accessories. The magnet-powered MagSafe feature has led to a few dubious design choices from Apple – and yet another has just emerged online.

When Apple launched the new phones last month, the absence of any leather cases was rather conspicuous. After nearly a month's delay, a selection finally landed online on Friday (see our best MagSafe wallet guide for all your options). But in a rare move for Apple, the company has admitted a curious design quirk – and even revealed it in product images. It might make some of the best camera phones, but when it comes to producing great accessories, it seems Apple isn't quite on the case this year.
