In conjunction with iPhone 12 and Apple Reviving the MagSafe brand For a new line of magnetic accessories for iPhone. Early accessories in the MagSafe lineup include cases, a leather wallet, and a MagSafe charger, but a Today’s new concept from Parker Ortolani Imagine how MagSafe could use external power.
Apple has introduced smart battery cases for the past several generations of iPhone. The Smart Battery Case design has remained largely the same, as it features a hump-back design and a physical connection to the iPhone’s Lightning port.
Parker’s concept for an iPhone 12 MagSafe battery envisions a battery that can be magnetically attached to the back of an iPhone or the back of an iPhone case. Essentially, it will provide a modular approach to the iPhone 12 battery box, allowing you to keep a portfolio on your device with a pick and choose when to deliver the actual battery itself.
The concept explains: “Get some extra power by simply attaching the MagSafe battery to the back of your iPhone 12”. Moreover, the Lightning port can still be completely free since iPhone 12 can charge via battery on MagSafe Disk.
MagSafe accessories provide up to 15W of wireless charging power for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. This isn’t the 20W charging speed that can be achieved with fast charging with a Lightning to USB-C cable, but it is two times faster than a normal 7.5W Qi charging. The IPhone 12 mini can be charged 12W speeds with MagSafe.
On concerns about the magnetic power of MagSafe technology, Parker says:
This will be powerful enough to stay connected to your iPhone if the magnet built into the battery is more powerful than something like a wallet or charger.
What do you think about this concept? How do you think Apple can use MagSafe technology in new ways going forward? Let us know in the comments!
