Our friends over at Nomad unveiled a new iPhone accessory today. It's called the Base Station Mini with Magnetic Alignment, and as the name suggests, it's the company's first ever magnet-enabled wireless charger.
Apple is reportedly going to update the iPad Pro next year, and among the changes is a slight redesign to support letting you charge your iPhone or AirPods via the back of the tablet.
Apple is reportedly developing a new inductive charging mat that could wirelessly charge multiple devices at once. On top of that, Apple is researching new charging technologies.
Our friends over at Nomad announced two new accessories on Tuesday. The first is the Base Station Mini, a gorgeous wireless charger with a black padded leather surface, and the second is a 20W USB-C power adapter.
Heads up MagSafe Charger owners, our friends over at Nomad have unveiled a beautiful new accessory for the wireless pad. It's called the MagSafe Mount, and it's a solid block of stainless steel meant to hold the charger in place so you can remove your iPhone quickly and easily.
Apple is believed to be working on a new battery pack for the iPhone 12 family that would use MagSafe technology and feature reverse Qi wireless charging. Our own Harris Craycraft has put together a little video discussing some of the pros and cons of the unreleased product.
When Apple launched the iPhone 12 lineup, the company also reintroduced MagSafe as a magnetic wireless charging and accessory feature. This means you can attach things like a wireless charger or even a case to the iPhone 12 and it will magnetically attach. But, like other Apple features, it doesn't mean that every third-party company is going to use MagSafe for their magnetic accessories.
If your iPhone 12 is one day charging on your Qi-compatible wireless charger normally as it should only to stop charging the next day, then you're definitely not alone. This is a known software bug in iOS and Apple has now confirmed that it's working on a fix.
Meet the KIKR S1, a wireless charger stand that lets you charge your iPhone and AirPods simultaneously that also doubles as a collapsible phone/tablet holder with adjustable height, angle and a whole lot of other cool features.
Apple has quietly refreshed its MagSafe Duo page to note the fact that wireless charging at the product's maximum speed isn't possible without spending extra cash.
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.
If you want to charge your iPhone 12 full speed via Apple's new MagSafe wireless charger, you'll need to run out and buy the company's new 20-watt USB-C charger because higher-wattage Apple chargers and third-party options currently don’t perform quite well.
