The fact that Apple's new $39 MagSafe wireless charger currently works full speed on the new iPhone 12 if used with the company's new 20W power adapter, sold separately, had doubters crying foul, saying it's an artificial limitation to force users to buy new chargers from Apple.
Want to fast-charge your iPhone 12 with Apple's discontinued 18W power adapter that you previously used for fast-changing your older iPhone? Not so fast — that 18W charger that came in the box with your iPhone 11/iPad Pro won't fast-charge the latest iPhone 12 lineup. For that, you'll need Apple's new 20W charger which must be purchased separately for $19 a pop.
Apple's new MagSafe charger for the iPhone 12 family doubles the wireless charging speed but is still slower compared to the wired solution. Concretely, the Wall Street Journal's Joana Stern found out in her video review of the new iPhones that the magnetic charger charges an iPhone 12 more than 2x slower than a 20-Watt USB-C charger with fast-charge support.
There are a lot of reasons to look at buying a new USB charger. Maybe you just got a new smartphone or gadget that didn't come with one.

If you follow the checkra1n team closely on Twitter and you pay attention to the our news pieces as the team releases updates to the tool, then you’d probably come to assume that you can’t run the checkra1n jailbreak unless you have a Mac or a computer running Linux. While the aforementioned state is still technically true, you can use a helpful utility called bootra1n to run the checkra1n jailbreak on your Windows PC.
While it takes a little more finesse than simply running the checkra1n application on a Mac or a Linux box, using bootra1n is a great way to get jailbroken if you don’t have access to either of the above. In this tutorial, we’ll be showing you how to go about it, step by step.
Today, a pair of compact GaN charger from Chargeasap went live on Kickstarter today.
The slew of revitalizing jailbreak news recently is nothing short of exciting for anyone that’s heavily invested in the process of pwning of iPhones and iPads. Fortunately, it seems like there’s still a lot of exciting news and teasers to be witnessed by devoted members of the community.
Odyssey Team member Hayden Seay (also known by his online handle Diatrus) took to Twitter early Saturday morning to share a particularly captivating picture of what seems to be an iPhone getting its operating system restored via software running on an iPad:
The next iPad Air should become the second Apple tablet to swap the company's proprietary Lightning port with the more ubiquitous USB-C protocol. At the same time, the upcoming iPad mini refresh should retain Lightning I/O.
All models of Apple's recently refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro notebook ship with a 61-watt USB-C power adapter, but only higher-end configurations are able to draw power from Apple's 87W adapter that shipped with the previous-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro.
