Guide to MagSafe Accessories for iPhone

Starting with iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, MagSafe offers an innovative way to attached accessories and wirelessly charge iPhone. A unique experience that paves the way for innovative accessories and perhaps someday a port-less iPhone.

The purpose of this guide is to explain how MagSafe works on iPhone. What accessories are available for purchase from Apple. And what we should expect in the future.

What is MagSafe for iPhone?

Magsafe is a new ecosystem of ‘easy-to-attach’ accessories to iPhone (and likely future Apple products) via the use of magnets. Offering a unique and easy to use experience with a modern twist.

To achieve this, an array of magnets around a wireless coil has been built into the back of the latest iPhone models – though you can’t see them. Apple has placed the magnets in a way that the accessory being attached will perfectly align. Particularly helpful for wireless chargers which are notorious for not working if the device is not placed on them perfectly centre.

Interestingly, MagSafe products can be layered. For example, the MagSafe charger will work if attached to the back of a MagSafe iPhone case. So you won’t need to remove the MagSafe case on your iPhone each time.

MagSafe accessories for iPhone

Apple has already released a number of MagSafe-enabled accessories for the new iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone Pro, and iPhone Pro Max. With more due to arrive later in the year. These include:

MagSafe Charger

The MagSafe Charger makes wireless charging snappy. The perfectly aligned magnets attach to your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro and provide faster wireless charging up to 15W.

The MagSafe Charger maintains compatibility with Qi charging, so it can be used to wirelessly charge your iPhone 8 or later, as well as AirPods models with a wireless charging case, as you would with any Qi-certified charger.

Like every Apple-designed case, it undergoes thousands of hours of testing throughout the design and manufacturing process. So not only does it look great, it’s built to protect your iPhone from scratches and drops.
