What is a MagSafe charger and how it works?
The world is evolving, and the days of wired Charging are soon to end. Apple being the trendsetter, has introduced a wireless magnetic charger MagSafe that looks like a zoomed TouchID Home button found in pre-FaceID iPhone’s era. Apple’s obsession with ‘click’ continues. Yes, the magnetic MagSafe charger will make a click sound when attached to the iPhone. Btw, I Love it.

What is MagSafe?
The MagSafe is the magnetic charger from Apple that attaches on the back of the iPhone. The idea comes from the MacBook Pro charger which Apple introduced in 2006, though it later replaced it with USB-C charger.
The MagSafe broadens the possibilities of charging your device on the go, without dealing with wire tangling annoyance.
How it works?
The iPhone 12 lineup comes with a ring of magnets on its back that surrounds the charging coil. The Magnets adhere to the magnetised MagSafe charger and other accessories including phone covers.
The MagSafe charger can also charge the older Qi-charging compatible Apple devices including iPhones, AirPods and Apple Watch.
Is the MagSafe Cover necessary for Charging?
Nope. Although, the MagSafe charger is designed keeping Apple’s MagSafe Silicon case in mind, using the MagSafe charger doesn’t require any cover and supports non-MagSafe compatible covers aswell.
Though the power transfer might decline and slow Charging may result.
