What is MagSafe and how does it work?

Remember the launch of the iPhone 12 models? The launch had a major impact on the iPhone user experience as Apple introduced the MagSafe technology. But what is MagSafe? MagSafe is a smart magnetic technology designed specifically for iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models.

From now on, the iPhone's internal charging coils on the back of the phone are filled with magnets to make sure your charger always hits the correct spot. Also, the NFC antenna helps your iPhone to recognise which accessory is being used.

Why you should get MagSafe accessories?

In addition to charging your iPhone up to twice as fast, you can also attach and detach your favourite accessories easily on the back of your phone. MagSafe magnets will only attach to MagSafe compatible accessories, so you don't have to worry about them interfering with other magnetic devices.

Make sure you are using a MagSafe compatible phone case to utilise the advantages of MagSafe accessories. You can recognise MagSafe compatible cases from a round circle on the back of the case.
