How to use your MagSafe Charger with iPhone 12 models

Apple’s MagSafe Charger is built to work with iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple MagSafe accessories, and Qi-certified devices and accessories.

What this means is this beautiful fast charging device will never be compatible with iPhone 11 and below. 

Setting t up your MagSafe charger for your smartphone or device 

  • Clear of any metal objects or other foreign material and place your MagSafe Charger face up. 
  • Connect the USB-C connector on your MagSafe to a 20 watt (W) or greater Apple USB-C power adapter
  • Your MagSafe needs a power adapter of at least 12 W of power, and your iPhone charges less quickly when using a power adapter that provides less than 20 W.

  • Before you place your iPhone on your MagSafe Charger, make sure that no objects [like credit cards, hotel key cards, or transit cards] or debris are between them. If your device has a metal case or if it’s very thick, remove it. Likewise, remove iPhone Leather Wallet with MagSafe. If you have a MagSafe case, you can leave it in place.
  • Place your iPhone on your MagSafe Charger with the display facing up. 
  • When your iPhone starts to charge, you’ll see a charge indicator on the display.
