iPhone 12 MagSafe accessories: How Apple's new snap-on magnets work - CNET
Oct 17, 2020 1 min, 21 secs

Apple's four new iPhone 12 models -- which are now available to preorder -- all come with 5G, better cameras and the return of a beloved feature Apple long used on MacBooks: the MagSafe charger. .

MagSafe for iPhone 12 uses a magnetic connection to attach a wireless charger and a potentially endless supply of magnetic accessories you can snap on, such as cases, docks, mounts and even a wallet.

The new iPhone 12 devices are embedded with what Apple describes as "an array of magnets" (Apple says they're recycled) around a centered charging coil that can pull up to 15 watts of power -- twice as powerful as wireless charging on previous iPhones (but on par with phones from other brands). .

No, Apple will include only a USB-C-to-Lightning cable (and no power brick or earbuds) in the box with new iPhones.

Apple's two MagSafe charging cables -- one standalone and another that also charges an Apple Watch -- will be sold separately, but Apple confirmed that at least one other manufacturer, Belkin, will be selling MagSafe-compatible charging cables as well.

In fact, MagSafe wireless charging may lead to even greater waterproofing, if Apple ever decides to go portless. .

The original MagSafe on MacBooks was a way to magnetically attach Apple's proprietary power cable to the laptop, designed to snap off with a tug

On the iPhone, MagSafe seems to be more about mobility, making it easier to connect and disconnect to both power and accessories

Check out the differences between the four iPhone 12 models Apple announced, how to prepare your current iPhone before you upgrade, and everything to know about the 5G included in Apple's new iPhones
