Apple has recently revealed the MagSafe Battery Pack for the iPhone 12 series.

This is like a power bank rechargeable battery back. However, it does highlight wireless recharge attached to the back of the iPhone. It’s told to work on iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which supports MagSafe.

The pack is prepared in a single size with a 1460 mAh battery. This implies that it cannot fully charge the iPhone.It charges up to 5 watts when you connect this pack to iPhone. Though when it is plugged into the power adapter, it is declared that the charging speed will be up to 15 watts.

Although this may not be a quick way to charge the iPhone, still it will help as an alternative. You need an update to iOS 14.7 or later to use this battery pack according to Apple’s official support document.

According to Apple, charged amount from this battery pack can be found in the iPhone’s home screen or Today View battery widget. The company declares that this pack provides security and reliability for the users in wireless charging.

Today, we will show you how this MagSafe Charger and iPhone Twelve models use magnets to attach wireless chargers.

Various magnetic accessories like cache, docks, mount, and wallet are attached to the back of this phone. In fact, one of the best features of the iPhone 12 is MagSafe Accessories.

So far, other phone manufacturer’s success rates have not been great while working on this type of snap-on feature. Yet Apple has successfully used it in later models of the iPhone to teach users a new way to use the iPhone.

How does MagSafe work on iPhone Twelve?

Apple’s new iPhone is tied to a Twelve Charging Coil, or ‘Array of Magnets’. It can draw up to 15 watts of power according to Apple.

As with the previous wireless charging on the iPhone, it is twice as powerful. The magnet pulls it toward you when you bring the charging end of the power cord closer to the back of the iPhone.

The process for other MagSafe accessories is similar and when you clip on the wireless charger, its animation icon is displayed on the iPhone.

Is there a MagSafe charging cable in iPhone 12?

Apple iPhone just has a USB C to lightning cable and does not have power bricks or earbuds. Apple has two MagSafe charging cables: one the standalone, and the other charger can charge the Apple Watch.

Except these two should be bought separately and Apple’s maker Belkin is also selling MagSafe compatible charging cables.

Does the wireless charger work on older iPhones?

The new iPhone with a Qi-enabled wireless charging device is backward compatible. If your former device supplies 7.5 watts of power, your new iPhone will also charge just as much.

It can truly pull up to 15 watts of charge and is also backward compatible with older devices.
