During the presentation of the iPhone 12, Apple also announced the return of the legendary MagSafe brand. Now, MagSafe is a wireless charging system for the iPhone. Various accessories can be produced using this system.
Apple once again relies on MagSafe by adding it to the iPhone 12
Apple has prepared a whole line of MagSafe-enabled accessories for the new iPhones, including various cases, wireless chargers and even a wallet for bank cards. A MagSafe Duo charger is also included, which will allow you to charge your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time.
MagSafe is supported by new smartphones – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
As a reminder, Apple has been using MagSafe power connectors on its laptops since 2006. The design provided for the use of magnets to hold the adapter, which users really liked as a safe and convenient solution. However, after 10 years, Apple began to get rid of MagSafe. The first laptop without a MagSafe connector was the MacBook Pro, introduced in late 2016. By 2019, Apple had finally gotten rid of MagSafe and completely switched to USB Type-C for powering laptops.
Gizchina News of the week
The direct successor of the iPhone 11 is expected to have excellent sales
Today, Apple has introduced the new family of iPhone 12 smartphones, the successors to the iPhone 11 family. A feature of the series this year is the presentation of four models; and the replenishment is the iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4″ display. Apple fans appreciate compact devices, but the majority may opt for its extended version.
The renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a new note. It suggests that the iPhone 12 with a 6.1″ screen, which is the direct successor of the iPhone 11, breaking the charts, will be a bestseller with a sales share of 40-45%. He found out that Apple purchased 80-85 million components of gadgets versus 75 million for last year’s iPhone 11 at the start. However, circumstances have developed so that the launch period for the iPhone 12 will not be long; so we will not see real demand for the iPhone 12 at the end of the quarter. …
The specialist believes that the key factor in choosing one version or another will be the price. But despite this, the cheapest iPhone 12 mini will not be able to meet the needs of the majority; so it will get 20-25%. As for the expensive iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, they will occupy 15-20% of the total circulation of the iPhone 12. It is not yet clear which of the four devices will be on sale in October. The final details and prices will be available tomorrow evening.
