    Hello All,

    I've just ordered myself a super expensive (IMHO) iPhone X.

    My question is:

    A) Are there any nice, minimal cases that allow it to be mounted to a magnetic holder
    B) I've heard that its already magnetic, if I put a clear case (non-magnetic) case on it, will it hold?

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post (I know its pretty trivial!):)

    The iPhoneX doesn't have any magnets in the phone afaik as this would interfere with the wireless charging.

    Apologies, I meant more would it stick to the metal components inside the phone...

    I don't think there is enough metal inside the phone to stick to a magnetic mount.

    Thanking you! Will have to keep a lookout for a case with a built in piece of steel to stick to!

    Keep in mind that a case with a magnet will interfere with wireless charging.
