Bloomberg shared details of a planned Apple product launch in another report. This time, sources in the article say that Apple is working on a magnetically connected iPhone battery – this will be the first iPhone battery designed by Apple to not work as a case.
The accessory will use the MagSafe feature that was introduced in October with the iPhone 12 line. It will be magnetically attached to the back of new iPhones and provide wireless power, possibly through the Qi standard adopted by iPhones. According to Bloomberg sources, the prototype has a “white rubber exterior”.
Apple has also shipped some MagSafe accessories for the iPhone, including a charging cable that uses magnets and other components to better align the charging coils and generate faster charging speeds than the D models. Does.
The MagSafe moniker was first used with a magnetic charging port for Mac laptops. In this case, fast loading was not part of the playground; Instead, the goal is to reduce the risk of damaging the computer if its power cord is hurt or pulled. With MagSafe, the cable will jump easily instead of pulling the device itself.
Apple has excluded MagaSafe from its MacBook product line over the past few years, but rumors are circulating that the company is expecting later this year with a new MacBook Pro or MacBook Air model.
There is no argument about when Apple will ship this new iPhone Magacef battery product. The report claimed that Apple was aiming to “launch it in the months following the iPhone 12 line”, but the product was delayed due to difficulties in favor of software development.
Specifically, the software informed testers that the battery was overheating, even though it was not.
Apple will likely adopt a conservative or cautious stance when introducing new batteries or charging products, noting that the once-advertised AirPower charging mat never saw the light of day and many gadget companies (perhaps the most famous Samsung) faced numerous reports Fire or injury due to a malfunction in the battery or power system.
