As first announced by Mac Rumors, Apple has refreshed its support documents that focus light on the functionality between the iPhone 12 models and the new MagSafe chargers.
iPhone 12, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max will arrive at top wireless charging speed of 15W while the iPhone 12 mini will arrive at top speed of 12W. Actual speeds will change on various elements including temperature, current battery charge, and system activity. The support document recommends using at least a 20W USB-C charger for ideal charging paces of [email protected] or [email protected] and higher for the three higher-level iPhone 12’s, and at any rate, [email protected] to arrive at top paces on the iPhone 12 mini.
Before attaching an iPhone 12 it’s also recommended to first connect the MagSafe charger to power. If you dock the iPhone before plugging in the MagSafe charger, it will default to a lower current until you remove it for three seconds – this will ensure maximum charging speeds. The MagSafe charger will default to 7.5W output when charging AirPods, and possibly even slower if it’s a Qi-compliant device.
The iPhone 12 Mini and the iPhone 12 Pro Max are not yet on sale. They will be available on Friday, November 6. On the other hand, the MagSafe wireless charging is available from the Apple site for $39.
