MagSafe surprise for older iPhone models!

Following a livestream on its YouTube channel on Friday, iFixit published a full in-depth breakdown of its teardown for both the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Previously, we have already published wallpapers that are presented in the standard version of the iPhone 12, and now it is the turn of wallpapers from the iPhone 12 Pro. However, a wired connection with Apple's 20-watt USB-C charger got there in a mere 28 minutes. It was revealed that this accessory, which can be used in iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max, XR, 11 and 11 Pro models that support wireless charging, charges slower in non-iPhone 12 models.

The reality is that there's a lot more to this than just the raw numbers, since wireless charging is really inefficient compared to wired charging. Much of it is lost as heat, and while this power loss diminishes with better alignment - which is undoubtedly a big part of what MagSafe is all about - it's still not almost as efficient as running charging power along a copper wire directly into the battery circuitry. In fact, Apple confirms this in the product overview.

While MagSafe will charge anything so long as it's Qi-compatible, the speeds vary wildly. However, it is best to note that although the glass is much harder on the newer iPhones, dropping the phone on its side could cause it to shatter more easily than dropping it flat on its screen.

In addition to receiving new song certifications, Swift grabbed a platinum album certification for her 2020 release " folklore ". Following weeks of roaming around the top ten, Taylor Swift's " Folklore " is now back at the top spot of Billboard 200 .


All the major assemblers of iPhones - Foxconn Electronics, Pegatron, and all are trying their utmost to accelerate the production as much and as early as possible.

In case you're unfamiliar with the new lineup, the iPhone 12 includes a dual camera module (a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle) while the 12 Pro has a triple camera setup with an additional 12-megapixel telephoto lens.
