Apple didn’t just release a new phone line last year. Their new MagSafe technology is making waves across the industry with third-party manufacturers scrambling to update their existing lineup or creating new accessories that can utilize this awesome technical innovation. That’s because MagSafe is bound to make your life a whole lot better though it’s different accessories.
Buying a new phone also means buying a new case for most people. However, with the introduction of MagSafe, choosing the right case for your new iPhone 12 isn’t just a matter of choosing the materials and degree of protection you want for your phone. You have to consider if the case you’re buying is compatible with MagSafe. To make sure you get the most out of the iPhone 12 line, you’re better off with a MagSafe iPhone case. Read on to find out why.
MagSafe started life as a safety feature for charging MacBooks back in 2006. Apple used magnets to “attach” the cable to the MacBook making it safe if someone trips on the wire and won’t tug the laptop to the ground. Although discontinued in the MacBook in 2019, Apple reused the trademark in the iPhone 12. This time around, the MagSafe for the iPhone allows for faster wireless charging and nifty ways to interact with other accessories. Unlike before, magnets aren’t the only thing that makes MagSafe for iPhones work.
Through some clever engineering, Apple has bumped up the wireless charging rate of the iPhone 12. The combination of a magnetometer and NFC technology now allows you to wirelessly charge your iPhone 12 device with up to 15 watts of power. While the new flagship phones are still Qi wireless charging compatible, although only up to 7.5 watts, you’ll need a MagSafe charger and the new 20-watt charging brick to get the full 15 watts. If you use any other wireless charger, you’re stuck with just the standard 7.5-watt charge.
The addition of magnets in the iPhone 12 makes mounting accessories easier. Apple now has a wallet that you can stick on the back magnetically. And as of this writing, they’re working on a battery pack that can wirelessly charge your iPhone 12. In combination with the magnetometer and the NFC, your new phone can detect what accessory is attached to it. Take for example Apple’s phone pouch. Your phone knows it’s in the pouch and displays the time in the small window of the accessory. A lot is going on with the iPhone 12 and MagSafe so you can check out this article for more info about MagSafe for iPhone 12.
If you look around or shop online, there are tons of iPhone 12 cases to choose from. Some of them are just regular old cases while others are labeled as MagSafe compatible. Like we’ve mentioned earlier, your iPhone knows what accessory you’re attaching to it and that means these cool new features will only work with a proper MagSafe iPhone case.
The main difference between a MagSafe iPhone case and a non-MagSafe case is the ring of magnets that assist in the attachment of other accessories. However, it’s not as simple as attaching magnets to the case. There are specific thicknesses and specifications needed for it to be compliant with Apple’s standards. When getting a MagSafe case, make sure that it’s a certified MagSafe case or uses Apple-certified components for your MagSafe accessories to work properly.
With our wireless charging example, some non-MagSafe cases will still allow you to use the MagSafe charger's 15-watt charging. That’s because the case might not be as thick as really rugged cases or wallet folios. The thing with these is that the magnetic connection is not as strong. It’s hit or miss really, so if you think that MagSafe charging is for you, then you’re better off with a MagSafe iPhone case.
