MagSafe: What Is It And Why You Would Want It

Ever since Apple introduced its MagSafe technology with the iPhone 12, the company’s subsequent iPhone releases have all utilised this magnetic technology. And with it comes a heap of MagSafe-compatible accessories. However, what exactly is MagSafe, and why do you need it as an Apple user? Let us explore its functionality and the compelling reasons why you should consider embracing this cutting-edge technology.

What is MagSafe?

If the term ‘MagSafe’ sounds familiar to you, it is because the older Macbook models came with a MagSafe charger (prior to the switch to USB-C). However, the new MagSafe technology featured in the newer iPhone models (iPhone 12 to 15) is not as simple as these outdated MacBook chargers. Instead, it features a wireless charging network, offering improved wireless charging and various innovative elements alongside its magnetic properties.

A series of magnets are placed around the iPhone’s internal charging coil, allowing the device to sense other MagSafe-compatible accessories and snap seamlessly and securely into place. Rest assured that MagSafe can only attach to other compatible MagSafe accessories, so you do not have to worry about other magnets interfering or getting stuck to your phone or MagSafe charger.

Why you should get a MagSafe charger

Why You Should Get a MagSafe Charger

Reason #1: Compatible with iPhone 12 series models and subsequent generations of iPhones

With the introduction of Qi2 wireless charging technology, Apple users now have an alternative that offers 15W charging speed, similar to MagSafe chargers. Moreover, Qi2 wireless chargers also provide magnetic alignment, ensuring the device securely connects to the back of your iPhone during charging.

However, Qi2 only supports iPhone 13, 14, and 15 series models. So, iPhone 12 users may want to err on the side of caution and stick with MagSafe chargers, which are compatible with iPhone 12 series models and subsequent generations of iPhones.

Reason #2: No more tangled cables

With a MagSafe iPhone charger, you can now say goodbye to the frustration of tangled charging cables. You no longer have to contend with untangling your charging cable whenever you need to power your device. Now, you can place your smartphone on the wireless charger, and it will attach to your phone securely while offering effortless charging.

Reason #3: Minimise wear and tear

Plugging and unplugging your device to a charging cable is a staple of wired charging. However, this action may eventually lead to wear and tear on your charging wires and the charging ports on your smartphone. A MagSafe charger eliminates this issue with its magnetic connection, resulting in a longer lifespan for your gadgets and accessories, thus saving you money on replacements in the long run.

Reason #4: Prevent your phone from slipping off the wireless charger

Thanks to its strong magnetic connection, a MagSafe charger easily clips onto the back of your iPhone, preventing accidental slips or disconnects. As such, you need not worry about your phone moving out of alignment and disrupting the charging process, like your device shifting due to the vibration from an incoming call or while you are driving.

Now that you have a better understanding of Apple’s proprietary magnetic technology, you can make a more informed decision on whether you want to embrace the MagSafe charger.
