Kang also says that MagSafe chargers will be able to offer power up to 15W. Here is the translated text from Kang’s original Weibo report:
The official basic accessories are: Magsafe Official Case with Magsafe, Two Wireless Chargers Magsafe Charger, Magsafe Duo Charger, you can see the literal meaning.
Back in September, 9to5Mac refers to a video who claimed to have shown the magnetic prototype of a wireless charger. Rumors have suggested it as well The iPhone 12 will include a new built-in magnet ring at the back to allow new accessories. Today’s report seems to confirm that an official Apple case will include MagSafe magnetic technology.
The revival of the MagSafe brand for Apple’s wireless charging line comes after Apple canceled the AirPower project in 2019 on reliability and overheating concerns. Apple seems to have changed its strategy this time around, returning to the magnet-based approach it used for MagSafe chargers for the MacBook series for many years.
