The new iPhone 12 includes MagSafe, and It's main purpose is improving the Qi wirless capabilities.
In this article, we will go over MagSafe charging capabilities, and review the best magsafe wireless chargers for iPhone 12 on the market.
Before we go over the MagSafe chargers, It is important to understand the difference between the new MagSafe wireless charging and the Qi standard wireless charging.
Qi Wireless charging is an industry standard way of universal charging technology, that many phones including Android and iPhones implement.
Essentially every iPhone since 2017 including iPhone 8 have Qi universal wireless charging capability built in, however there is a catch.
Even though the MagSafe is very similar to Qi charging, Apple introduced faster charging in new iPhone 12s, and this performance is only available in Apple approved MagSafe chargers.
Qi wirless charging is capable of 7.5W, while Apple enables iPhones to charge 15W using a MagSafe brand charger.
If you already have Qi chargers on hand for your previous phone, you might be wondering if your old charger will work with the new iPhone 12 Magsafe Technology.
Yes, your old Qi wireless charger will work with your new phone, except the two things you need to be aware of.
Qi chargers don't have the magnetic attachment and Apple limits how fast universal chargers can charge your iPhone 12.
