Apple is developing a battery for the new iPhones 12 that uses MagSafe technology to connect to devices through a magnetic system, experts familiar with the process said.
The portal The Verge explains that the new batteries will work just like other MagSafe accessories, a line of quick-fix accessories.
In practice, the device being developed is an accessory of charging in the form of battery that will connect magnetically to the back of the phone – at the bottom, it’s a kind of extra battery that will “stick” to the device.
The news agency Bloomberg further details that the new batteries have been in development for at least a year and will be used to charge smartphones in the new range of iPhones – mini, Pro, Pro Max – wirelessly through MagSafe.
The technological giant based in Cupertino, in the US state of California, will have planned to officially present this battery a few months after launch of the new iPhones, which took place in October last year.
Apple, it will be recalled, has returned to the top of the world smartphone market for the ride on the new iPhones, according to a report by consultant IDC published in early February and quoted by the economy newspaper Cash Money.
“In terms of manufacturers, there was a clear change in the top 5 (…) Apple achieved a phenomenal performance in the fourth quarter of 2020, returning to number one position with 90.1 million units, driven by the success of the iPhone 12 ″, it can be read.
At Christmas time, just after the launch of new products, Apple shot 22.2% over the previous year and reached 23.4% market share, a value that represents 4.3 percentage points more than Samsung.
