What MagSafe Accessories Are and How To Attach Them

What Is MagSafe

MagSafe technology is a revolutionary change to the world of wireless charging known for its ability to deliver a reliable charge through magnetic connectors. Apple released the technology during the launch of the iPhone 12 series. The idea was to make fast, reliable charging accessible to smartphone owners. It allows for easy and secure attachment of various accessories to your iPhone, iPad, or MacBook. The magnets in MagSafe accessories ensure a strong connection that stays in place while still being easy to remove when needed.  The Wireless Power Consortium, a multinational technology consortium, describes both MagSafe and Qi as dependable forms of high-speed wireless charging. 

If you’ve ever owned an Apple laptop, you’ve used MagSafe. Apple originally introduced it with the 2006 MacBook Pro, which featured a charger that attaches quickly and seamlessly to the port on the side of the laptop via a magnetic connector. This design is safer than a standard connector because it easily disconnects if pulled, cutting down on cord, battery, and device damages.

What phones have MagSafe?

Apple trademarked MagSafe technology in 2006 with the launch of the MacBook Pro. This ensures that no other devices could claim that they were MagSafe-compatible, as it is only technically true if the device was created by Apple. This is where the distinction between Qi and Qi2 comes into play. Qi2 (pronounced ‘chee-too’), also known as Qi v.2.0, is the newest advancement in wireless charging. It was developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) to enhance charging efficiency through the use of improved magnet alignment. These two technologies share many similarities ever since Apple contributed part of its MagSafe technology secrets to the WPC to create Qi2. Both feature a 15W charging output and a ring of magnets that ensure proper alignment, cutting down on energy loss and overheating. The most notable difference is that Qi2 can be used across multiple phone types, such as Apple, Samsung, Android, and Google– MagSafe is a patented technology reserved only for Apple products.

What Are the Benefits of Using MagSafe Accessories?

There are many reasons to switch to MagSafe accessories. The following are the key benefits of using MagSafe accessories to show off your unique style.

  1. The magnetic attachment in MagSafe creates a secure connection, preventing accidental detachment and reducing the amount of energy lost during other wireless charging methods.
  2. MagSafe accessories are designed to snap on and off for easy installation and removal. This is a better alternative to accessories with adhesive sticker backings because it does not destroy the back of your phone case, allowing you to use it longer.
  3. MagSafe accessories offer a sleek and minimalist design that complements your unique style and the aesthetics of your Apple device.

How To Attach MagSafe Accessories

The strong, built-in magnets in MagSafe accessories make attaching them straightforward. First, ensure that the device you want to connect it to has a MagSafe Phone Case or a MagSafe Ring Kit so that the magnet can properly attach. Then, simply let the magnets click together to form a secure connection. Once connected, the accessory will stay in place until you remove it. To detach the accessory, simply pull it away from the device with a gentle tug.

  • Keep your devices and accessories clean to ensure a strong magnetic connection.
  • Experiment with different MagSafe accessories to find the ones that best suit your needs and preferences.
  • Store your MagSafe accessories properly when not in use to prevent damage and maintain their functionality.
