This week, Apple is responsible for sharing news related to the battery of its iPhone. After presenting the MagSafe Battery Pack portable battery, the company confirmed that the iPhone 12 has reverse wireless charging. Yes OK this feature has been rumored for some timeSo far, no product with the bitten apple logo has taken advantage of it.
Apple confirms that reverse wireless charging works when connected to an iPhone that charges via Lightning, the iPhone Mag can power the MagSafe battery, which it is the first instance of an iPhone that can route power to an accessory device.
Reverse wireless charging is a fact at Apple
According to the information published in the MagSafe Battery Pack support document, iPhone must be plugged in for the charging option to work. This process suggests wider reverse wireless charging capabilities in the future. Considering the reverse wireless charging feature of the MagSafe Battery Pack, it seems technically possible that an iPhone 12 could power the AirPods or AirPods Pro, but Apple has yet to implement this feature.
“If you need to charge both your iPhone and the MagSafe battery, you can charge them at the same time. Connect your MagSafe battery to your iPhone, then connect the MagSafe battery to a power adapter. With a 20W or more power adapter, the MagSafe battery can charge your iPhone with up to 15W of charging power. “
“If you charge your iPhone and the MagSafe battery at the same time, your iPhone may charge to 80% or more before the MagSafe battery starts to charge.”
With the path started, Apple suggested that MagSafe Battery Pack users could take advantage of the iPhoneP’s direct charging function with other accessories.For example, when the iPhone is connected to a power source such as CarPlay wired and can charge both accessories.
“You can also charge both by connecting your MagSafe battery to your iPhone, then plugging your iPhone into a power source. You might want to charge this way if you need to connect your iPhone to another device while charging, for example if you are using wired CarPlay or if you are transferring photos to a Mac.
While other companies have had reverse charging capabilities for some time now, Apple users can try something similar now. And maybe in the future take advantage of the function to charge your AirPods, Apple Watch or any other product of the ecosystem.
