What Is MagSafe & Why Do You Want It?

by Sarah Dobson on October 07, 2021

What Is MagSafe?

The stunning iPhone 13 is here, and that means a whole new group of iPhone users will be experiencing Apple's MagSafe charging system for the first time. But what is MagSafe? MagSafe is a series of magnets placed around the iPhone’s internal charging coil, which senses other MagSafe-compatible accessories and snaps securely into place. Originally developed as a safety feature for MacBook charging cords, MagSafe was first incorporated into the iPhone 12 to create a new ecosystem of accessories for easy attachment and faster wireless charging. And don’t worry, MagSafe only attaches to other MagSafe-compatible accessories, so no other magnets will interfere or get stuck to your phone. 

Why Should I Get MagSafe Accessories?

MagSafe accessories will give you full use of iPhone 13’s features plus create all-new experiences. MagSafe delivers faster wireless charging up to 15W when locked in with an iPhone 12 or 13, whereas other wireless chargers only deliver up to 7.5W. This means charging your phone will take a fraction of the time. Plus the snug snap-on attachment eliminates the concern that your phone might not charge fully if it vibrates with an incoming call.

Aside from simplified and enhanced wireless charging, MagSafe paves the way for exciting accessories such as magnetic car vent mounts, face motion trackers and power banks to expand your experience with iPhone 13.

What Are The Best MagSafe Accessories?

You can do so much with MagSafe, but these are some of our favorite accessories:


MagSafe Duo Charger

The MagSafe Duo Charger conveniently charges your compatible iPhone, Apple Watch, Wireless Charging Case for AirPods, and other Qi-certified devices. Just place your devices on the charger and a steady, efficient charge begins on contact. The charger folds together neatly so you can easily take it with you wherever you go.

MagSafe Battery Pack

Attaching the MagSafe Battery Pack is a snap. Its compact, intuitive design makes on-the-go charging easy. The perfectly aligned magnets keep it attached to your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 — providing safe and reliable wireless charging. And it automatically charges, so there’s no need to turn it on or off. There’s no interference with your credit cards or key fobs either.
