Apple Is Working On A MagSafe Battery Pack

Apple Is Working On A MagSafe Battery Pack

The Main Point

Apple is now working on a MagSafe battery pack, and that is great. So far, Apple hasn’t done too much with MagSafe. They have a few things, but this new battery pack could be the first really good one. It is also rumored that this battery pack could also reverse charge, possibly making it even better.

Apple recently brought MagSafe to the iPhone lineup with the launch of the iPhone 12. So far, though, we don’t have very many interesting accessories. They have a wallet that can attach to the back of the phone and a wireless charger, but those aren’t really that cool. Now, though, it is rumored that Apple may be working on a portable charger that attaches to the back of the iPhone through MagSafe. This could be the first actually useful MagSafe product that Apple has released so far.

What is this?

This is actually a pretty cool portable charger. It obviously attaches to the back of the iPhone 12 through MagSafe, and it then wirelessly charges the iPhone. This could be very useful, but if you use a case, this probably won’t work for you. I don’t think that this battery pack could stay attached through a case. MagSafe does use strong magnets, but not that strong. From the rumors that we have heard, there may be two versions of this battery pack. One version of this would be normal, with all of the things listed above. The other version would be a better version, which would have reverse charging. This should mean that you would be able to charge your iPhone and something else that you set on the back at the same time. That would be a very good feature, and it seems quite similar to Samsung’s wireless power share.

Can we trust these rumors?

Currently, I do not think that we can trust these rumors. Yes, we do know that Apple is working on a MagSafe battery pack, but everything else is part of a different leak. This was leaked by John Prosser on the Genius Bar Podcast. John Prosser has been right before, but he has also been wrong. This means that everything that we have learned from him should be taken with a grain of salt. He also said that Apple may release only one of these battery packs, so we may never see the reverse charging MagSafe battery pack, even if Apple is actually working on it. It would be pretty great if Apple does come out with this MagSafe battery pack, because that would be a really useful MagSafe product. There are some alternatives from other companies, though.
