Apple posted instructions on its official website explaining how to properly use the new MagSafe wireless charging system on the iPhone 12. At the same time, the company also spoke about the technical flaws that users will inevitably face. For example, it can damage magnetic stripes and RFID chips on bank, travel and access cards; as well as key fobs for intercoms and other similar devices. For this reason, Apple insists that they should be removed from the device while charging. In addition, metal or just thick cases, like the branded leather wallet case (which is just intended for cards), Apple requires to be removed.
Another drawback of using MagSafe charging, which Apple modestly writes about in small letters at the bottom of the article, is the circular prints that will begin to appear on the surface of the leather cases. It is also possible that noticeable heating appears, due to which the device can interrupt charging at around 80%; which will continue only after the smartphone has cooled down. Finally, the manufacturer notes that to speed up the charging process by simultaneously connecting the wire and MagSafe will not work. The gadget will simply be charged by a wired method.
More and more users complain about the poor battery life of the iPhone 12
Gizchina News of the week
As the iPhone 12 went on sale, more and more users began to get and use the new phone; and some problems began to show up. Now, many users have reported that the battery life of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is too weak, and the battery’s performance is not strong after being fully charged. It is difficult to count on it for a full day if you watch a lot of videos or play games.
The battery capacity used by the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro is the same, both 2815mAh. Compared with the previous generation iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, the capacity is reduced a bit. We has a battery capacity of 3110mAh and 3046mAh respectively.
Although Apple officially stated that the battery life of the iPhone 12 and the previous-generation iPhone 11 is the same; the results of tests by some experts show that this is not the case.
Last week, Arun Maini conducted detailed comparison tests on iPhone SE, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 series, and iPhone 12/12 Pro models. At the same time, these models are all running iOS 14 without a SIM inserted; and the battery status is also good. The result is that when the iPhone 12 Pro (final battery life of 6 hours and 35 minutes) is exhausted, the iPhone 11 Pro still has 18% of the power remaining.
When the iPhone 12 (final battery life of 6 hours and 41 minutes) automatically shuts down; the iPhone 11 Pro (final battery life of 7 hours and 36 minutes) still has 14% power.
Although there are many situations that determine the battery life of a model; a large capacity can theoretically obtain a longer battery life.

This is the battery capacity for the 2020 iPhone flagships:
- iPhone 12 mini – 2227 mAh
- iPhone 12 – 2851 mAh
