Many MacBook users lamented when Apple decided to ditch MagSafe for charging over USB-C. One of the upsides of MagSafe was that it was quick and easy to connect and disconnect, and also prevented issues like tripping over the cable and dragging your laptop down to the ground with you.
Our phones contain magnets, but with the iPhone 12 series, Apple has introduced more magnets thanks to the (re)introduction of MagSafe. Some have wondered that with these additional magnets, could it interfere with other devices, like credit cards, access cards, as well as medical devices like pacemakers.
The problem with power banks and battery cases is that it’s not quite convenient to use as it either requires you to bring an extra cable or you need to encase your phone in a thick and bulky case. However, if you do need the extra juice while you’re on the go, then you might be interested in what could possibly be the world’s first third-party MagSafe battery pack for […]
Not too long ago, Apple announced that its MagSafe Duo charger would now be available for purchase. The charger itself is priced at $130, which is actually rather expensive considering what you’re getting, but it seems that customers might have to end up paying more for a compatible charger to use it with.
When Apple announced its new iPhone 12s, the company brought back the MagSafe brand with some new magnet-based charging accessories. One of those accessories is the MagSafe Duo that will both charge an iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time, which we guess is the company’s alternative to its failed AirPower attempt.
With the latest iPhone 12 series, Apple has introduced a bunch of new colors and accessories, and some of you out there might actually care about how they look like when put together. This is why Apple has launched the iPhone 12 Studio website that is accessible on mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad.
When Apple announced MagSafe, they unveiled two MagSafe chargers. One of the chargers is the puck-like charger that you place your iPhone on top of, and the other, known as the MagSafe Duo, features that puck, but there’s also a smaller puck inside of it that can be used to charge the Apple Watch as well.
By introducing MagSafe, a magnetic wireless charging system, Apple has certainly introduced an interesting way of creating accessories for the iPhone. So far in terms of official accessories, Apple has created cases and also a wallet accessory that magnetically clips onto the back of the iPhone, allowing users to store things like cards.
One of the new features supported across Apple’s new iPhone 12s comes in the form of MagSafe, Apple’s take on wireless charging. When paired with Apple’s 20W charger, it will wirelessly charge iPhones at speeds as fast as 15W. However, that won’t be the case with the iPhone 12 mini.
For those who are serious about mobile photography, there’s a good chance that you might have heard of the company Moment. For those who are unfamiliar, Moment is a company that specializes in creating third-party lenses, and now it looks like the company is back with a bunch of camera-related MagSafe accessories for the iPhone 12 series.
There is a lot of confusion surrounding Apple’s new MagSafe charger. Apple claims that the device allows users to charge the new iPhone 12s at speeds of up to 15W, twice the charging speed compared to regular wireless charging on current iPhones. However, recent tests have found that using it with an older iPhone charges it at insanely low speeds of 2W.
At its core, Apple’s new MagSafe charger is really a wireless charging system. While it was designed for the iPhone 12 in mind, Apple does note that it will charge older iPhones that support wireless charging technology, but even then, it seems that even if you own an older iPhone, MagSafe might not be for you.
If you plan on buying and using Apple’s new MagSafe charging system for the iPhone, you might want to take note that by using the new charger, it could actually leave imprints on your iPhone’s leather case. This is according to a warning by Apple in a support document that mentions this potential issue.
So while Apple’s AirPower charging mat might really be dead, the company isn’t done trying its hand at wireless charging, and so with the new iPhone 12, the company introduced MagSafe. This is a new magnetic wireless charging system developed by Apple that they claim faster than regular wireless chargers.
Apple has confirmed that it’s going to conduct an event later this month and while the company hasn’t said what it’s going to show off, rumors suggest that the much-awaited MacBook refresh will be announced on October 27th. Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities predicts that the revamped MacBook Pro lineup is going to come with a “MagSafe-like” USB-C adapter.
