How does MagSafe work with my iPhone?

MagSafe is a series of magnets placed around the internal charging coil of the iPhone 12
and iPhone 13.  This feature helps your device to be seamlessly aligned and securely in place on your fast-wireless charger.  It works only for MagSafe-compatible accessories, so there’s no need to worry about other magnets interfering or getting stuck to your phone.

Why should I get MagSafe chargers and accessories?

Having a MagSafe charger and other accessories will give you full use of the iPhone 12 
and iPhone 13 features and create new experiences at the same time.  While your new iPhone still works with other Qi™-enabled wireless chargers, chargers with MagSafe can deliver faster wireless charging of up to 15W when locked in with an iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, whereas other wireless chargers can deliver up to 7.5W only.  That means you’ll spend less time charging, and the perfectly aligned snap-on attachment eliminates the worry that your phone might not charge fully if it vibrates with an incoming call.
