If there's one tech company known for its design prowess, it's Apple. But even the best of the best can be prone to the occasional misstep. While the iPhone 12 range has won plaudits for its sleek, sharp-edged design, Apple's new accessories aren't quite as popular – and it seems one is proving more troublesome than the rest.

One of the main new features of the iPhone 12 is its magnet-powered MagSafe feature, which allows accessories to snap onto the back of the phone. These include chargers, cases and even card holders – but a serious design flaw with the latter suggests that even if it's one of the best camera phones, the iPhone 12 might not be the best choice of wallet.
