At the Apple Event on October 13, Apple announced a new accessory standard for the iPhone 12 series, MagSafe for iPhone. It can easily attach to the back of the iPhone 12 with magnets, and the charger can provide up to 15 watts of fast charging while maintaining compatibility with existing Qi devices, according to the company.
Along with that, the company also introduced the MagSafe Duo charging pad, which allows you to charge your iPhone and Apple Watch on a single charger, as well as an image of the iPhone 12 and Apple Watch charging on both sides of the charging pad at the same time.
MagSafe is the name of the AC adapter connector on the previous MacBook series, which is magnetically fixed so that it will come off immediately when an external force is applied, thereby preventing the wire from breaking. The system of " fixing the power supply with a magnet" has been revived as a new relationship (or "ecosystem" as Apple calls it) between the iPhone and wireless chargers and accessories.
MagSafe charging is made possible by magnets placed inside the iPhone 12 series. The company says it uses a proprietary Nanocrystalline shield to capture magnetic flux so that the accessory sticks perfectly to its back.
And if the accessories are MagSafe compatible, you can use other accessories while they are attached. For example, you can charge your iPhone 12 without removing the case.
In addition to the MagSafe Duo charging pad and MagSafe charger (to charge the iPhone 12), new silicone, leather, and clear cases, and a leather wallet that can be attached to the back of the iPhone to hold your cards will be available as MagSafe accessories. New third-party MagSafe accessories are also coming soon.
