More evidence that an official iPhone 12 MagSafe battery pack is in the pipeline
The accessory would attach to the back of an iPhone 12 using the MagSafe system. This perhaps explains why Apple hasn't yet launched Smart Battery Cases for its newest smartphones. Unlike those battery add-ons, the new attachment won't serve as a protective case.
Currently, Apple seems to be experiencing some software-side issues and this may interfere with its original plan of launching the battery pack some months after the release of the iPhone 12. Apparently, iOS sometimes erroneously shows that the pack is overheating. There also seem to be issues related to switching between using the accessory on an iPhone with and without a case.
The Cupertino giant was also believed to have disabled the reverse wireless charging feature on the iPhone 11 because of charging efficiency requirements.
