The MagSafe Wallet was announced at Apple's fall event.

At Apple's iPhone 13 event,, the company unveiled new and updated accessories like the iPhone MagSafe Wallet with Find My app compatibility, alongside the iPhone 13 series, the Apple Watch Series 7, a revamped iPad and iPad Mini, as well as iOS 15.

Unlike an AirTag, the MagSafe Wallet can't "phone home" on Apple's Find My network. According to MacRumors, the wallet instead notifies the user when and where it detaches from the back of the iPhone. But it's up to you to track it down from there.

The leather wallet has built-in magnets that attach to the back of your iPhone or to a MagSafe phone case. The wallet will hold three cards and is shielded so it won't affect the magnetic strip on credit cards.

The MagSafe Wallet costs $59 on Apple's website and comes in Golden Brown, Dark Cherry, Sequoia Green, Midnight and Wisteria. The wallet is compatible with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series. 

Apple improved upon its Find My technology in April by allowing its Find My app to locate lost items made by third-party companies. The following month, the tech giant released AirTags -- tracking tiles for items like keys or bags. An AirTag can be slipped into wallet or bag or get clipped onto something via a separate keychain that cradles the tile.

CNET contacted Apple for more information and will update this article when we hear back.
