The popular accessory manufacturer Anker has officially released a new MagSafe-compatible wireless power bank for iPhone 12 users. This comes as rumors suggest that Apple is developing its own similar accessories, but that it has encountered some barriers in development. The anchor accessory was first teased at CES last month and is now available to order.
The new Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank has a 5,000 mAh battery that can charge iPhone 12 mini from 0 to 100% with a little extra, iPhone 12 from 0 to 95%, iPhone 12 Pro from 0 to 97%, and iPhone 12 Pro Max from 0 to 75%.
The MagSafe Magnetic Compatible Design is what makes this latest Anker PowerCore battery unique. It can be attached to the back of the iPhone 1
- Snap and Go: Simple and convenient wireless charging; just attach the PowerCore magnetically to the back of the phone and see how the power flows.
- Made for iPhone 12: Works perfectly with iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Charges through compatible magnetic cases.
Anker PowerCore Magnetic has LED indicators to show the remaining charge on the battery pack, as well as a USB-C port for charging other accessories and for charging. It sells for $ 39.99 and starts shipping on March 3rd.
Bloomberg reported last week that Apple is also developing a MagSafe battery accessory for the iPhone 12 series, but that it has encountered a few problems during development. The report explained that Apple has been developing this new accessory “for at least a year,” and it has been “planned to launch in the months following the launch of the iPhone 12 line.”
The important thing to keep in mind is that MagSafe accessories can charge at 15W, but this Anchor accessory is only “MagSafe compatible”, not MagSafe certified. Anchor PowerCore Magnetic will be limited to standard 7.5 W Qi charging speeds with the iPhone 12.
Whether Apple’s MagSafe battery pack for the iPhone 12 ends up seeing the light of day remains to be seen, but the MagSafe-compatible Anchor is available to order from today.
