The FCC has approved Apple’s new MagSafe Duo charger, and it’s likely we’ll see it released by the end of the year.
Apple has listed the iPhone 12 Leather Sleeve and the MagSafe Duo charger as “Coming Soon” in its store at US$129 each.
A new interview with some of the designers who worked on the iPhone 12 range revealed how it all came about, and the centrality of MagSafe.
Moment is releasing its own brand of MagSafe accessories for the iPhone 12, like cases, tripod mounts, cold shoe mounts, and more.
With the right charging brick, Apple’s MagSafe charging pad can quickly charge your iPhone 12 at an estimated 50% battery in 30 minutes. Although it was written last year, Clifford Colby’s article is a helpful investigation into fast charging. The short answer is that fast charging won’t damage your iPhone’s battery.
Damage is rare if everything’s well-managed inside. A battery’s management system closely monitors the two charge phases and drops the charging speed during the second phase to give the battery time to absorb the charge and avoid issues, which is why it can take 10 minutes to get those last few percentage points.
Although older iPhones don’t have the magnets that the iPhone 12s do, they can still be charged with a MagSafe charger.
The release of the iPhone 12 also introduces MagSafe wireless charging and a host of magnetic accessories that stick on the back of your phone.
Penny Manzi is suing Apple after her MagSafe adapter sparked and started a flash fire, which engulfed her face and skull in flames.
