The iPhone 12 has launched, and with its release comes a few new features to Apple’s flagship smartphone series. The most notable hardware addition to the iPhone 12 is MagSafe.

MagSafe was previously known as the charger for MacBook laptops before the company changed over to USB-C. However, this term has taken on a new meaning for the iPhone 12.

MagSafe now refers to a series of magnets installed in the back of iPhones. iPhones have had wireless charging since the iPhone 8, but this new technology will allow wireless charging at up to 15 watts, doubling the wireless charging capacity to keep in line with fast wireless charging on Android devices.

Though wireless charging is the initial focus of this technology, it is not the only function of the feature. The magnets allow for a wide range of accessories to be used with your new iPhone.
