Apple’s MagSafe Duo Charger Doesn’t Support Full 15W Charging for iPhone 12; Patent for a MagSafe Cooling Case Surfaces

Apple’s upcoming MagSafe Duo Charger, which is designed to let users charge their iPhone and Apple Watch together, is found to be unable to charge compatible iPhone 12 models at the full 15 watts. This is unlike the regular MagSafe Charger that can deliver up to 15W wireless charging. Separately, Apple seems to have granted a patent for a MagSafe cooling case that could let the iPhone work faster by allowing the processor to run at a higher temperature. The MagSafe technology was introduced on MacBooks back in 2006, but it only arrived for the iPhone family with the iPhone 12 series in October this year.

As noticed by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple has updated the product description of the MagSafe Duo Charger on its website to underline that it doesn’t support up to 15W wireless charging and can deliver up to 11W using a 20W USB-C Power Adapter.
