Apple has launched a new MagSafe Battery Pack for the iPhone 12 series smart-phone. However, the iPhone 12 series was already launched about a month ago along with other MagSafe accessories. The MagSafe Battery Pack magnetically attaches to the back of the iPhone. To remove it, you just need to gently pull it off the back of your device.
The company confirm that this MagSafe Battery is compatible with iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Moreover, it has offering additional hours of battery life, without mentioning any numbers. When you attach the Battery Pack to the iPhone, it will automatically begin to charge your iPhone and a charging status display on the Lock screen (iOS 14.7 or later).
Additionally, it doesn’t come with a cable in the box, so you need to use the cable that comes with the iPhone to charge it. You need to use a 20W or higher USB power adapter to charge the battery pack, and Apple says that it can charge even faster when coupled with a 27W or higher charger, like those that comes with a MacBook.
Further, it has pass-through charging so that you can charge both the iPhone and MagSafe Battery Pack at once. When charging on the go, the MagSafe Battery Pack can charge the iPhone with up to 5W of power. If connected to a 20W or higher power source, it can charge with up to 15W of power.
Last but not least, the Apple MagSafe battery pack for the iPhone 12 series is price US$99 (Rs. 7,380 approx.). And is available to order today, with deliveries starting from July 19th. It costs Rs. 10,900 in India, but the availability is unknown yet.
