Although Apple’s AirPowerproject has not been successful, Apple is not sitting still when it comes to wireless charging goes. To make the use of wireless chargers easier, Apple is working on a solution with magnets, according to sources. There were reports about it before magnets in the iPhone 12, but now states a source from China that Apple is releasing a range of magnetic accessories. The term MagSafe returns here.
MagSafe returns: magnetic charger and cases for iPhone 12
The MagSafe is the magnetic charger that Apple used for years for the MacBooks. Thanks to this charger, it automatically shoots into the charging port of the MacBook. It was a popular and at the same time smart solution for clumsy laptop chargers, but since the switch to usb-c Apple this not anymore. For the iPhone 12 MagSafe would come back again.
There are three accessories: a cover with a magnetic connection and two magnetic chargers. The chargers would be called MagSafe Charger and MagSafe Duo Charger. What the chargers look like and what you can do with them is still unclear. The MagSafe Duo Charger suggests that you can charge two devices at the same time. Or that two iPhones or for example a iPhone in Apple Watch is still the question. The charger has a power of 15W.
If this rumor is true, we expect the new MagSafe accessories to be announced during the October event. Also read our expectations of the iPhone 12 event on October 13.
