What Is MagSafe?
Apple has been using their patented MagSafe technology for a number of years now, but it is only recently, with the release of the iPhone 12, that Apple has decided to brush the dust off the name and redesign it once bring it back with a vengeance as their latest system for charging your device.
If you have ever owned one of the older Apple devices, you may not have known it, but you would have been using MagSafe technology yourself. Before Apple introduced USB-C charging for their iPhone lineup, MagSafe technology was employed to ensure easy connectivity for the charger, and easy disconnectivity for the charger should it become snagged, therefore avoiding damage.
With the arrival of the iPhone 12, we now have an all-new MagSafe system that can be used to charge your devices without the need for a cable. How is this possible? Well, to keep things simple, Apple has essentially put a ring of magnets around a Qi charging coil inside the back of the iPhone 12, which allows you to charge your device simply by lining the magnets up with the charging port, for fast, wire-free charging.
