MagSafe works very slowly with older iPhones



A few days ago, Apple introduced the new iPhone 12 lineup. The company also introduced the MagSafe wireless magnetic charger. Unfortunately, the maximum charging power is 15W when using a power supply and a cable with support for 20W, and when using the unit at 12W, the actual power will be even lower. At the moment, the MagSafe charger is already sold for $ 39.

A logical question arises – does MagSafe work only with the iPhone 12, and do older iPhone models be supported? The answer is yes, all iPhone models with QI support are supported. Users who have already tried this claim an incredibly low charging speed. Tests with the iPhone XS Max have shown that this charge should not be used with older iPhones.

For example, the iPhone XS Max, discharged to 1 percent, scored 13 percent in flight mode. It is not known why charging is so slow, but this figure is really unsatisfactory. Recall that the iPhone XS Max supports 7.5W wireless charging, and it works with this smartphone almost twice as fast as the new MagSafe – the smartphone charges in half an hour by 25 percent.

In another test of charging the iPhone XS Max, the authors compared the standard charging of Belin 7.5W with MagSafe, and charging Belkin charged the smartphone by exactly twice as much – by 26. Therefore, users of older iPhone models who doubt whether to buy MagSafe or not, can answer definitely not worth it. Charging speed is too slow, it is better to use standard QI-charging.

However, MagSafe works great with the iPhone 12. It charges the smartphone faster than Apple’s standard QI charger, and the iPhone 12 can be charged from zero to 50 percent in 28 minutes using a Lightning USB-C cable and a 20W charger. However, when using a standard MagSafe charger, charging up to 50 percent will take an hour.
