In the “Hi, Speed” event, besides the new iPhone 12 lineup, one of the new products that Apple introduces is a new accessory called MagSafe. This is one of Apple users’ favorite connecting ports on MacBook until Apple decided to terminate it in 2016 and switch to the more popular USB Type-C port.

According to Apple, this year’s iPhone 12 will have a magnet charger integrated into its body along with a magnetometer to help the iPhone recognize MagSafe-enabled accessories.

To make the MagSafe charging port work, Apple has launched a MagSafe wireless charging dock. Basically, this charging dock is just like many other wireless chargers on the market. However, instead of using Qi technology, this charging dock of Apple is only compatible with the iPhone 12 lineup as it uses MagSafe technology, something that iPhone 11 and lower models don’t have.

The benefit of this charging dock is that it takes advantage of the magnet’s suction power to automatically align the iPhone to a rechargeable position. Users won’t have to manually align the device like with other Qi chargers. The price of this charging dock is $39.

Besides the MagSafe charging dock, Apple also introduces a new accessory called MagSafe Duo, a wireless charging dock that can simultaneously charge both the iPhone 12 and Apple Watch.

MagSafe Duo might be Apple’s effort in replacing the AirPower charging dock. Apple hasn’t announced any information regarding the release date and price of the MagSafe Duo.
