There have been rumors that Apple developed a MagSafe battery pack for the iPhone, and today the accessory was released for the Apple 12 series. Available from online Apple Store, the product is priced at $ 99 (or 12 monthly payments of $ 8.25). Although Apple does not mention the capacity of the battery located in the package, the company says that depending on the connection, the battery pack will charge 15W or 20W.
Apple says: “Just connect a zipper cable to the MagSafe battery pack for up to 15 W wireless charging. With a power adapter over 20 W, you can charge both the MagSafe battery pack and the iPhone even faster.” Keep in mind that Apple does not include an adapter or cable in the box, although a 20W USB-C charger can be purchased for $ 19, and a 1-meter (3.28-foot) Lightning USB-C cable will also cost you $ 19.

Apple says that “The MagSafe battery pack is easy to attach. The compact, intuitive design makes it easy to charge on the go. The perfectly adjusted magnets hold it attached to your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro – providing secure and reliable wireless charging “And it charges automatically, so there is no need to turn it on or off. There are also no interruptions to your credit cards or key tags.”
In a Support page released by Apple on Tuesday, the company wrote that “Before using the MagSafe battery pack for the first time, you must fully charge it with a Lightning-to-USB cable with a 20 W or higher power adapter.” A yellow status light means that the device is charging while you briefly see a green light when the package is fully charged. If the battery becomes too hot, the software will prevent the handset from charging above 80%. Move the iPhone to a cooler place, and when the temperature drops, it should start charging again.
An iPhone using the MagSafe battery pack must have iOS 14.7 or later installed. The product is currently unavailable from the physical Apple Stores. Apple offers a wide range of accessories that use the MagSafe platform to attach to the back of an iPhone 12 model. These include a leather wallet, non-battery cases, leather cases and more.
