Connecting headphones or cable to iPhone restricts MagSafe charging


Ahead of the start of pre-orders for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which begin on November 6, Apple has updated a document on its website that outlines MagSafe charging features for the latest iPhones. So, it became known that the iPhone 12 mini will not have the same fast charging using 15W MagSafe as other models in the line. Apple also shared some other interesting details, such as what happens if you connect a Lightning cable to your iPhone while charging with MagSafe.

How Fast MagSafe Charges

As we discussed earlier, new iPhones can charge twice as fast using MagSafe wireless charging (15W), while iPhone 11 and older will use the regular Qi standard (7.5W). However, not all new iPhones are so lucky. Here is the phrase that appeared in an official Apple document:

Apple also noted that MagSafe 15W (or 12W) will not always charge the iPhone at maximum power. There are factors such as power loss during wireless charging, battery state of charge, temperature, and so on, at which power output changes. Apple highlights this in the doc as well:

What if you connect headphones to iPhone on wireless charging

Interestingly, if you have a Lightning accessory such as EarPods, Apple claims that in this case, the MagSafe charging will automatically be reduced to 7.5W due to “regulatory standards.” The company also says 12W to 19W power adapters will work with MagSafe chargers, but charging will be slower.

What if you connect Lightning to iPhone on wireless charging

  • The MagSafe charger is designed to charge your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and Apple accessories faster and more efficiently.
  • When charging a non-MagSafe device, the power will decrease and the charging time may be longer than the normal Qi charger.
  • Do not place credit cards, passes, passports, or key fobs between iPhone and the MagSafe charger, as this could damage the magnetic stripes or RFID chips in these items.
  • If you have a case that contains any of these items, remove it before charging, or make sure they are not between the back of your phone and the charger.
  • As with other wireless chargers, your iPhone or MagSafe charger may get warm while chargingTo conserve battery life if it gets too hot, the software can limit charging to above 80 percent.
  • If you store your iPhone in a leather case while charging with the MagSafe charger, circular skin compression marks may appear on the caseThis is fine, but if you are concerned about it, we recommend using covers made from other materials.
