MagSafe: What is it and how does it work?

What is MagSafe?

MagSafe is a magnetic technology developed by Apple and integrated into the internal engineering of the iPhone 12 models onwards. It's a technology that was created as a security feature for MacBook charging cables (you'll remember that they are self-adhesive to the computer, making connection a lot easier), but since MagSafe was incorporated into the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, has been able to create a new ecosystem of easy-to-attach accessories that allow faster wireless charging for the user and simplify the use of the device.

MagSafe is essentially a series of magnets placed around the iPhone's internal charging coil, it detects other MagSafe-compatible accessories and attaches firmly and securely to allow even "airborne" charging, or without the iPhone charging. phone touches another surface than the magnet, both horizontally and vertically depending on the case.

MagSafe only attaches to other compatible MagSafe accessories like PWR Flex or Carmag, not to any metal or magnet, so there's no need to worry about other materials getting in the way or getting stuck to your phone.

What devices does MagSafe work with?

As we said, MagSafe works with iPhone 12 and later models, and compatible accessories are specifically designed to work with the technology.

With a MagSafe charger and other accessories, you can take full advantage of the features of your iPhone. While your new iPhone still works with other Qi-compatible wireless chargers, chargers with MagSafe can offer faster wireless charging, up to 15W, while other wireless chargers offer only up to 7.5W (and, of course, they don't stick).

That means you'll spend less time charging, and with our Elite Alignment, the perfectly aligned snap-fit ​​eliminates the worry of your phone not charging fully or properly. 

Aside from streamlined and improved wireless charging, MagSafe has also made it possible to create a whole range of exciting accessories with a premium finish, such as MagSafe-specific cases like our MagSafe Clear, both official and compatible chargers, and even MagSafe-compatible wallets or vehicle mounts that take advantage of the functionality of MagSafe to keep the iPhone perfectly upright and steady even on the move, all devices designed to make your life easier and more pleasant.
