The creation of its own ecosystem by Apple has become an undoubted feature of this brand. Therefore, when purchasing an iPhone or iPad, the user can be sure that he will be able to charge two gadgets with the same charge. But, in recent years, even the compatibility of the company's accessories has been called into question.
Confusion and various problems with Apple's power adapters arose in 2020, when the company released various gadgets that were not able to work well with different adapters of this brand.
How the new MagSafe technology is introduced
15 years ago, the company introduced the MacBook Pro with the new previously unknown MagSafe technology. And the main feature of this device was that there were magnets on the cable, making it easy to attach and detach from the laptop. With such a charge, there was no need to be afraid that the wire could be accidentally touched. Even if this happened, he always remained in place, and the wire was simply pulled out.
Compared to older connectors and adapters, MagSafe was significantly different. But, instead of this technology, the company decided in 2016 to switch to using the new USB-C. Not all users were happy with these changes. It became possible to charge the Mac from different directions, but still the magnet was missing.
By 2020, many have already forgotten about MagSafe, but the company again decides to return to this technology. The charger took on a completely different look and was introduced in addition to the iPhone 12.
Disadvantages of a new device
The iPhone 12 MagSafe is completely different, it is represented by a series of magnets that are distributed in a certain way. All this is done for convenient and secure attachment of accessories.
The charger itself, which is made in this technology, is conveniently attached to the iPhone and performs a number of other functions, but magic, such as it did with the MacBook Pro, happened before.
The company has spent a lot of money on an advertising campaign in which this charger is presented as something new and convenient, but in reality this is not entirely true. First of all, the user should forget that the cable can be disconnected from charging with one hand, this will not work here. The iPhone is securely attached.
And if the owner of the product has previously used vertical wireless chargers, then he will not like this option either.
Not the least factor is speed. So, Lightning allows you to charge the iPhone 12 with a power of 20 watts, but MagSafe only 15 watts. It takes much longer to charge the device in this way.
But, if you compare the new technology with conventional wireless chargers, then the option from Apple can be called the best.
