Apple is apparently developing a brand-new iPhone charging device in the kind of a battery pack that magnetically connects to the rear of the device using MagSafe, Bloomberg reports. Although some models have a rubber outside, the battery pack isnt believed to function as a protective case like previous iPhone battery accessories from Apple. Alongside information of the new battery case, Bloomberg also keeps in mind that the iPhone lineup is not likely to receive assistance for reverse wireless charging anytime quickly.
The battery pack device is believed to have actually been in advancement for at least a year, however its apparently faced development concerns associating with the iPhones software thinking that the pack is overheating. Bloomberg notes that Apple is careful about announcing charging accessories, after it was forced to cancel its AirPower charging mat in 2019, a year and a half after it was first announced. Development issues might indicate that the brand-new battery pack accessory is delayed and even scrapped.
Its supposedly dealt with development concerns
The charging pack would be the current in Apples lineup of iPhone 12 MagSafe devices, which connect onto the back of the phone with the help of an embedded circle of magnets. Previous accessories have actually consisted of wall battery chargers, along with magnetically attaching wallets. MagSafe is said to be returning to Apples laptop computers too, just with a connector similar to the old pill-shaped design.
Reports of the new battery pack first emerged after a reference to it was found in code in the iOS 14.5 beta, MacRumors reported earlier this week. Bloomberg notes that the recommendation has actually subsequently been removed.
As well as the new battery pack, Apple is reportedly interested in permitting its gadgets to charge one another. Bloomberg keeps in mind that it had planned for its 2019 iPhone lineup to be able to wirelessly charge AirPods, however the strategies were later on ditched. The functionality is “not likely in the future,” according to Bloomberg.
Other accessory manufacturers are currently attempting to offer comparable functionality to the reported MagSafe battery pack. 9to5Mac reported on one such pack late last year, which was being offered on Alibaba and Aliexpress under a variety of names.
