iPhone 13 May Launch Alongside Improved MagSafe Charger, US FCC Filing Hints

Although the iPhone 13’s release date has yet to be announced, a redesigned MagSafe Charger has surfaced in a file with the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that could be released alongside the new iPhone series. The iPhone 12 versions are also classified as “legacy” devices in the US FCC website, along with four “New Phone” items that could be iPhone 13 variants. The updated MagSafe Charger looks to be tested on AirPods Pro in addition to the new iPhone models.

The new MagSafe Charger with the model number A2548 is shown in the US FCC application, which was first seen by tipster Dave Zatz. This is in contrast to the previous A2140 charger that Apple released alongside the iPhone 12 family last year.

The next MagSafe Charger was tested on a list of devices, according to a US FCC document filed on August 13. Model numbers A2341, A2172, A2176, and A2342 were among the “Legacy Phone” goods. These include the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 mini in the United States.

The FCC document indicates that the MagSafe Charger was tested on four new Apple phone models in addition to the existing iPhone versions. The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 mini are all possible candidates. However, there are no model numbers in the application to provide any concrete information.

The materials made public as part of the US FCC file also don’t specify what features of the new MagSafe Charger have been improved over the previous one.

Nonetheless, earlier this year, tipster Max Weinbach predicted that the 2021 iPhone models would include upgraded MagSafe technology with stronger magnets than the ones seen on the iPhone 12 models. It’s also possible that the size of the wireless charging coil and charging speed may improve.

It was claimed in July that the iPhone 13 models would be able to handle reverse wireless charging thanks to the new MagSafe technology. This means that the new iPhone family will be able to charge your existing Apple devices wirelessly, similar to what Huawei and Samsung have been doing for some time on their flagships.

To fully comprehend the changes, we must wait for the formal announcement. However, Apple is rumoured to be holding its virtual September event as soon as next week, at which the iPhone 13 versions are expected to be presented. It’s also possible that we’ll see the new MagSafe Charger and other accessories there.
