iPhone 12 Overview:
The iPhone 12 is an absolute unit, with 5G support, a new attractive design, upgraded cameras, and four different variants. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are the first iPhones of a new generation. Support for 5G, a new physical design, and camera enhancements are all substantial advancements over the iPhone X generation. This isn’t a new concept. Apple did something similar when it debuted the iPhone 4 in 2010 and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014. However, there is one significant distinction with the iPhone 12 generation.
The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max are the first four new iPhones to be released at the same time and will be able to carry out tasks such as phone share with ease. The Mini is a great option for those who wish to go small and save money. Get the Pro Max if you want the largest iPhone with the most up-to-date iPhone cameras. The 12 and 12 Pro, on the other hand, are very comparable (like basically-the-same-phone similar). That isn’t always a terrible thing.
Apple’s new MagSafe battery pack
Apple shocked us on Tuesday by simply making its newest iPhone accessory available for purchase. The $99 MagSafe Battery Pack isn’t the first battery cell to connect with the iPhone 12 family via Apple’s new magnetic technology (Anker provides a 5,000mAh pack with slower 5W charging for $45.99), but it is the first from Apple and can charge at up to 15W while plugged in.
MacRumors and 9to5Mac both point to a support document that clarifies a few doubts we had about the gadget right away, including whether or not this unlocks the iPhone 12’s “hidden” reverse charging feature. While iFixit was unable to locate any additional hardware that may be used to enable wireless charging, the company’s idea to let you charge accessories while the iPhone 12 is plugged in and charging was revealed in FCC filings, along with graphics that now look very familiar.
According to Apples Support Page; You may charge your iPhone and MagSafe Battery Pack at the same time if they both need to be charged. Connect your iPhone to your MagSafe Battery Pack, then plug the MagSafe Battery Pack into a power adapter. Using a 20W or higher power adapter, the MagSafe Battery Pack can charge your iPhone with up to 15W of charging power.
If you connect your MagSafe Battery Pack to your iPhone and then put it into a power source, you can charge both. If you need to connect your iPhone to another device while charging, such as if you’re using connected CarPlay or downloading images to a Mac, you might want to do it this way. If you charge your iPhone and MagSafe Battery Pack at the same time, your iPhone may charge to 80% or more before the MagSafe Battery Pack starts charging. In case you missed it, the battery pack’s capacity was revealed in one image: 1460mAh, 7.62V, 11.13Wh. We’ll have to perform some testing to see how much charging it can add in real life, but it’s worth remembering that, like with Apple’s old non-magnetic battery covers, watt-hours of charging is the more significant metric to focus on in this case.
