Available for Order: Belkin iPhone Mount with MagSafe for Mac Desktops and Displays

For those of you who would like a convenient way to mount your iPhone on an external Mac monitor, Belkin just started accepting orders for a new mount:

I just placed my order. The current ETA is January 19 - February 2. Hopefully, it ends up coming much sooner. In the meantime, I have a workable solution.

On a side note, I don’t typically use my iPhone 14 Pro Max as a webcam, as I often need to have it handy for other things. Though, I hung on to my iPhone 11 Pro Max and find it works well as a webcam (among other things). I primarily use it with Camo as I want more control over the settings than Continuity Camera provides.

The iPhone 11 isn’t Magsafe compatible, so I bought an (M)Force case from Moment. This case allows me to use my iPhone 11 with MagSafe accessories. I can even use it with MagSafe chargers.

Nuts. It’s already out of stock and only providing an option to get emailed when it’s back.

Continuity Camera has been a big success for me, so I’ll be happy to replace my jury-rigged holder with a proper one.

I was able to get this one without problem. It is mounted adhesively…but that allows it to swivel so you can see either side of the iPhone.

It’s available (though shipping in 3w+) via Apple:


Ah, of course. Ordered!


Thanks for sharing. Good to know.

I’ve been very happy with the Moment (M)Force case I mentioned previously. It feels like a very solid case, even though it wasn’t very expensive. And I was happy to discover that (M)Force supports charging (albeit at a maximum of 7.5 W).

I still have an old 2017 27" iMac. Do you know if this new Belkin mount will work with the older iMacs? I’ll upgrade to a Studio Display at some point, but probably not for 6-9 months from now. I know the mount will work fine with the Studio Display, but the older iMacs have a very different kind of top … so unsure if it will work there.

Love the Belkin mount with my MBA M1!

The compatibility tab of the product page specifically includes: “iMac 2017 and later”, so it looks like you’re in luck!

I use my existing (laptop) mount on my M1 MacBook Pro and find it works well (as long as I keep the lid fairly vertical). It will be especially handy for travel.

You just helped me spend $40!

@timstringer Thanks, this is great to know. I’m impressed with the build quality of the Belkin mount for laptops

Over at DIY Overhead Cam, I documented a novice way to do this. Right now, it looks like this:


It looks like my Belkin iPhone Mount will arrive on Tuesday (possibly sooner), quite a bit earlier than expected. I look forward to sharing my impressions.

I received my Belkin iPhone Mount (desktop) earlier today. I’ve tested it with my iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 11 Pro Max (with a Moment case that makes it MagSafe compatible).

Some initial impressions:

  • It’s a very solid product, without being too heavy.
  • It perches nicely atop my Dell 4K monitor.
  • It’s easy to adjust and maintain the angle.
  • While I’ll mainly be using it on displays, it’s nice to have the option to mount it on a tripod.
  • It doesn’t work very well with a display that’s very thin (e.g. a MacBook Pro display). I can see why Belkin created a separate laptop product (I also have this one).

Overall, I’m very impressed. :+1::+1: I’m sure I’ll be putting this cleverly-designed mount to good use.



I got my mount Friday and have done half a day with it so far. I have it perched on an UltraFine. I like the solid feeling as well and the mount is totally secure. No picture issues, of course.

I could use a little more friction in the hinge. The amount they have is good for the initial positioning, but MagSafe is strong enough that the hinge will expand a bit when I pull off my phone if I don’t use two hands. Tim had a better experience; I see he uses a case and I bet that the weaker magnetic force through the case accounts for the difference.

Overall, it’s easier to start using than my jury-rigged Continuity Camera setup, feels safer and looks better. Good purchase!


Thanks for sharing your experiences, @cornchip!

I mainly use this mount with my iPhone 11 Pro Max. This phone doesn’t have MagSafe, but I purchased a Moment case that makes it MagSafe compatible.

I got mine (in Canada), last week as well. Love it. Just purchased Camo so I can crop my picture and not have extraneous detail captured. Very happy.
