Apple on Tuesday announced a new development for users of the company’s latest flagship devices – the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. This is a MagSafe Battery Pack – a portable battery that allows you to charge the iPhone without wires. It attaches to the back of the device via MagSafe, a wireless charging technology that is integrated with a strong magnetic attachment, and allows the connection of additional accessories.
As mentioned, the new and intriguing accessory charges a relatively slow charge, at a rate of only 5 watts, but the company emphasizes that if you connect it to electricity – you can charge the battery and the device at a rate of 15 watts at the same time. Apple has recommended using a 20-watt charger for this purpose. They further noted that the MagSafe can be charged in the opposite way with your iPhone – by plugging it in, and attaching it to the back of the device.
It is still unclear when the product will be available for purchase in Israel and in any case it will only be available towards the end of the month. It is expected to cost $ 99, and can be used with devices running at least iOS 14.7.
