How To Use MagSafe Charger With iPhone 12

Do you know how to use the MagSafe Charger with your iPhone 12?

Apple introduced a wireless charger for their latest iPhone models. This wireless charger is called the ‘MagSafe Charger’. The MagSafe Charger’s purpose is to charge your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max in a convenient way. It removes the hassle of wired charging since it is wireless, but at the same time, it can quickly and safely charge your iPhone.

The MagSafe Charger became really popular due to its design and convenience. However, it also garnered some negative feedback. This is due to the wireless charging issues that had been reported by users since it was introduced. One issue that was observed was the iPhone 12 Pro not charging with the MagSafe Charger.

To prevent such issues from happening, we have created a guide on how you can use MagSafe Charger with iPhone 12. Hopefully, this will help you avoid experiencing any issues with the MagSafe Charger.

Without further ado, let’s jump right in!

1. What The MagSafe Charger Is.

The MagSafe Charger is designed to charge your latest iPhone devices quickly and safely by the use of its wireless charging capability. It automatically adapts to optimize the charging of the iPhone 12 models for up to 15W of peak power delivery for faster wireless charging. But for the iPhone 12 mini, the MagSafe Charger only provides up to 12W of peak power delivery.

MagSafe also brings a totally unique experience to iPhone users. MagSafe Chargers have an array of magnets around the wireless charging coil. This optimizes the alignment and efficiency so it perfectly connects to iPhones each time they are charged. This also prevents any charging inefficiency, which can negatively affect your device and result in your iPhone 12 charging more slowly.

2. How To Set Up And Use MagSafe Charger.

Now that you are familiar with what the MagSafe Charger is, it’s time to know how to set up and use it properly. Knowing how to set it up and use it properly will lengthen its life, therefore, allowing you to use it for a longer time. 

One thing that you should always remember when using the MagSafe Charger is to plug it into a power source before placing your iPhone on top of it. Doing this will allow MagSafe to verify that it is safe to deliver maximum power.

Here’s how you can set up the MagSafe Charger:

  1. Start by connecting its USB-C connector to a recommended 20W or greater Apple USB-C power adapter. You can also connect it to any compatible third-party USB-C adapter or a USB-C port on a Mac.
  2. Then put your MagSafe Charger face up on a flat surface. Ensure that it is clear of any metal objects or other foreign material.

In case you accidentally placed your iPhone on top of the MagSafe Charger before plugging it into a power source, just remove your iPhone from it, connect it to a power source, and wait for three seconds before putting it back on.

3. Apple MagSafe Accessories To Use.

MagSafe is a new variety of accessories that enable easy attachment and faster wireless charging. These range from cases, leather sleeves, wallets, and many more. Most of the time, the MagSafe Charger can be used with any compatible Apple Magsafe accessories. 

There are Apple MagSafe cases that are available for various iPhone 12 devices. The good thing about these cases is that it attaches itself to your iPhone using MagSafe magnets. This makes it securely attached to your iPhone and allows the use of the MagSafe Charger and other accessories.

Another MagSafe accessory is the MagSafe leather sleeves. This lets you slide your phone into it with ease. It also has an opening in its sleeves which lets you see the clock even when your iPhone is inside it. However, if you use it with the MagSafe Charger, it may leave circular imprints due to the compression of the leather.

One other accessory on our list is the wallet. It attaches to the back of the case firmly and lets you put your money, cards, and IDs. However, it is not recommended for the wallet to be used when using the MagSafe Charger as it may damage the magnetic strips or the RFID chips in your cards or IDs.
