What is MagSafe?
MagSafe is a magnetic technology from Apple, built into the internal engineering of iPhone 12 models. Originally created as a safety feature for MacBook charging cords, MagSafe was incorporated into the iPhone 12 to create a new ecosystem of accessories for easy attachment and faster wireless charging.
How does MagSafe work?
MagSafe is a series of magnets placed around the iPhone 12’s internal charging coil, which senses other MagSafe compatible accessories and snaps seamlessly and securely into place. MagSafe will only attach to other compatible MagSafe 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 iPhone 12’s features and create new experiences at the same time. While your new iPhone will still work with other Qi-enabled wireless chargers, chargers with MagSafe can deliver faster wireless charging up to 15W when locked in with an iPhone 12, where other wireless chargers deliver up to 7.5W. 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.
Aside from simplified and enhanced wireless charging, the MagSafe snap-on attachment creates exciting accessories such as magnetic car vent and fitness mounts, face motion trackers and power banks to widen the experience with the iPhone 12 and make life simpler and more precise.
What’s the difference between
“Made for MagSafe” and “MagSafe Compatible”?
Our accessories that are built “with MagSafe” have the official MagSafe technology from Apple inside them. Such products will be marked with a “Made for MagSafe” badge, which means they have been developed and rigorously tested to MFi guidelines and optimized for iPhone 12, and wireless chargers with MagSafe can charge faster at up to 15W.
Our other magnetic accessories that are “MagSafe compatible” meet industry standards and still provide the convenience and precision of snap-on attachment with a magnetic ring, but don’t have the official MagSafe technology inside, so wireless chargers will only charge at 7.5W. These products are held to our highest standards and designed with consumer in mind completely safe to use with your iPhone 12 models.
