Previously we heard from various sources that the Cupertino-based giant Apple is working on its MagSafe-compatible battery pack for the iPhone 12. The company stated that the new battery pack would attach to the iPhone 12 models with magnets in its explainer.
The company has promised that the new model will be easy to remove and it won’t be as bulky or as awkward as prior Apple-designed battery options. From what we know so far about the company’s latest venture, the MagSafe battery pack attaches to the back of an iPhone, and some of the prototypes have featured a white rubber exterior.
Reports also indicate that the MagSafe battery pack will have a silicone coating similar to Apple’s silicone iPhone cases. For now, we have no word about the size and thickness of the new battery pack. But, Apple has promised not to make it bulky and awkward.
According to sources, the Cupertino giant is optimistically positive about the new battery pack magnet’s strength. It states that it has extensively tested the MagSafe battery pack’s magnetic strength to make sure that it stays firmly in place when charging.
Releasing wireless charging technology for a major product like iPhone 12 series is a huge risk. It is being termed that a MagSafe battery pack will charge the iPhone 12 models at the same speed as a standard MagSafe charger, but there are sure limitations. First of all, the charging speed could be slower because of the lack of a power adapter.
But as we know, the company has been working on its MagSafe battery pack long before the iPhone 12 models launched, but it reportedly ran into software issues.
It is also reported that the MagSafe battery pack will have reverse charging. Though not much information is provided about this feature, it could mean that the iPhone would charge the battery pack when plugged into a Lightning cable.
