According to reports, Apple’s MagSafe Duo has been found on the Korean compliance website. Apple has introduced support for MagSafe wireless charging through its latest iPhone 12 series, which includes iPhone 12 mini, basic iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The MagSafe accessories series launched at this event include MagSafe chargers, MagSafe Duo accessories and a series of protective covers. When the case and MagSafe wireless charger went on sale on October 16, MagSafe Duo price and availability details have not yet been announced. Now, the accessory has been found on the National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) compliance site of South Korea, which shows that Apple is committed to launching this product in the future.
MacRumors first discovered the MagSafe Duo wireless charger on the NRRA certification site in South Korea. The list provides almost no information about price or availability, but it does hint that Apple is working hard to launch the accessory. MagSafe wireless charger can charge iPhone, while MagSafe Duo can charge iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time. During the iPhone 12 event, Apple vaguely stated that MagSafe Duo will be available at a later date.
The MagSafe charger is priced at Rs in India. US$4,500 (US$39 in the US), so considering the additional features of MagSafe Duo, it should be a bit more expensive. The recently released Apple support page confirmed that the iPhone 12 mini supports 12W MagSafe wireless charging, while the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max use the MAgSafe charger to support up to 15W charging capacity. Lightning protection accessories such as earphones compatible with MagSafe chargers will only provide wireless charging speeds of up to 7.5W to comply with regulatory standards.
Apple also pointed out that iPhone 12 series phones with a case thickness of more than 2.1mm may not be able to charge well with MagSafe chargers. It says that boxes supported by MagSafe must have a uniform maximum thickness of 2.1mm, although they are recommended to be 2.0mm thick.
