Since the launch of the iPhone 12 series that supports 5G networks, Apple has released several MagSafe accessories, including card holders, protective cases and chargers. Now, a new report claims that Apple is preparing another MagSafe accessory similar to the smart battery box.
According to sources, Apple is developing a MagSafe magnetic battery pack that can be magnetically attached to the back of the phone to wirelessly charge the iPhone 12 and future iPhones.
According to reports, Apple has been developing this accessory for more than a year, and it may be released in the next few months. Unlike previous Apple battery packs, this new MagSafe battery pack cannot double as a casing, which means it will be the first battery pack designed by Apple that does not double as a casing.
In addition, it is reported that in Apple’s internal testing, the magnetic attraction function is powerful enough that users do not need to worry about falling off, but Apple still needs to solve some software problems (such as charging heat dissipation problems), which makes the launch of accessories later than expected.
It is expected that the new MagSafe wireless charging device will become a very important charging accessory for Apple in the future.
In fact, this magnetic charging accessory has been found in the new system.
The developer found the battery pack in the code of the iOS 14.5 beta system. Although it was quickly deleted by Apple, it showed that Apple has begun testing in the new system.
Now it seems that the “battery pack” mentioned in the code should be MagSafe magnetic charging treasure. In addition to power banks, it is reported that Apple is considering developing more MagSafe series accessories, including car accessories, etc., but it has not yet officially entered the development stage.
There is also a rumor that the iPhone 13 Pro Max will cancel the charging interface. If this is the case, wireless charging will become a very important charging method for the iPhone in the future.
Apple has begun to prepare for the complete wirelessization of the iPhone.
Mingmei Unlimited today, by the way, reverse wireless charging is not a unique feature of Apple, but to be honest, there are not many application scenarios for this technology. If it is not a last resort, you should not rush to grab the power of other phones.
In addition, the leaked documents show that all models in the iPhone 12 series can reverse charge the accessories through the back. At this time, the iPhone will be used for wireless charging. Mutual charging capabilities between Apple devices may be enhanced, such as MacBook to power iPhone or AirPods will become possible. Whether the iPhone will become the wireless charging pad for AirPods is also unknown.
Of course, this patent proposes an ecosystem in which Apple devices can not only charge each other, but also synchronize data.
It’s not clear when Apple will launch this new iPhone MagSafe battery product. According to reports, Apple originally planned to release the iPhone 12 series within a few months after the release, but the product was delayed due to difficulties in software development.
In addition, although the function has not been officially released, the hardware is actually supported. According to FCC documents, all models in the iPhone 12 series can reverse charge the accessories through the back, and the iPhone will be used as a wireless charging. use.
In theory, Apple can enable this feature through an iOS system upgrade, although there is no sign that the company will do so. Of course, Apple never explains unreleased features.
However, I believe that this technology will also be overcome with the passage of time, and it will appear in people’s vision in the near future.
It is worth mentioning that Mingmei Unlimited today is that reverse wireless charging is to change the back of a mobile phone with wireless charging function from “receiver” to “transmitter” to charge other products. Samsung/Huawei/Xiaomi, etc. in the Android camp Android and other mobile phones support reverse charging.
Finally, what do you think about this matter?
