Earlier this year, Moment launched its latest collection of cases for the iPhone 13 line. Available for all four of Apple’s latest phones, the line revolves around a new iteration of its distinctively robust Moment Case, which has been refreshed for the iPhone 13. Four different styles are available, each coming in a vibrant color.
In addition to fall protection from a height of 6 feet, each of the holsters is compatible with MagSafe and can pass through a Qi charger. To help protect, you’ll also find a microfiber lining on the inside, as well as loops for attaching the wrist strap, if that’s your thing.
But with so many other cases on the market, it is $ 49.99 is the price worth it? We explore how the latest brand fits together.
Here is a more detailed look at the specification:
- The built-in (M) Force magnetic array is MagSafe compatible
- Compatible with Moment mounts for MagSafe
- Works with most Qi wireless chargers
- 6-foot fall protection
- Housing body made of high strength polycarbonate and TPU
- Top quality microfiber inner lining
- Supplied in 100% recycled packaging after use

Ever since I picked up Moment holsters with the iPhone 12, the masks of this brand have been at the top of my list of everyday drivers. So when I upgraded to the iPhone 13 Pro earlier this fall, I was excited that it wouldn’t be long before Moment launches its latest series of compatible accessories. And now that they are finally shipping, I was able to take a look at the new Moment case for the iPhone 13.
I used both olive and yellow, which are some of the more unique choices in the line. These styles are quite appealing personally and are really popular compared to other offerings in the line.
Cases for iPhone 13 Moment look as good as they look, with a soft but firm rubberized material. Each one has a textured pattern shaped on the back for extra grip, which definitely helps when using them to place a photo.
In addition to the new line of cases for the iPhone 13, Moment has also launched the Drop-in Lens Mount, which serves as an accessory on the masks. This will allow you to pair one of the brand’s popular smartphone lenses with your iPhone 13, delivering all the photographic capabilities we’ve expected in the past to Apple’s best mobile camera to date.
It’s really new to see a brand that uses 3D printing in its product line, and these lens mounts seem to be the perfect application. Although I’ve had a break from my use with iPhone 12 cases before, the firmer design here should definitely help it withstand wear.
I’ve talked for a long time in the past about how much I enjoyed being able to change external lenses depending on what the photo session required. And now what I can do with the iPhone 13 completes my setup on the go again. The combination of Moment’s robust holster which in itself is a great cover with additional photography options makes its latest releases essential to iPhone 13 owners in my book. Although, if you think you will never pick up one of the compatible lenses, it is probably best to save money for another case.
