Apple today has the MagSafe Battery Pack accessory for iPhone 12 models. Many months after the iPhone 12 series was unveiled, Apple quietly released a new first-party MagSafe accessory in the form of a wireless battery pack. (Unofficial Magnetic Battery Packs Pack for iPhone 12 has been around for several months from third-party makers.)
The MagSafe battery pack attaches magnetically to the back of iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, extending battery life. The package itself charges with a Lightning cable, and it can be charged to the connected iPhone at the same time. Apple recommends using a 20 watt USB-C charger for the fastest charging times.

The MagSafe battery pack is available to order today and first deliveries will begin on July 19. Apple says the MagSafe battery pack requires the iPhone to run iOS 14.7 or later.
The MagSafe Battery Pack joins an existing accessory ecosystem of: wireless batteries that have cropped up since the iPhone 12 came out. However, all of these third-party options are unofficially “MagSafe Compliant” rather than MagSafe-approved. For now, Apple’s first-party accessory is the only official MagSafe Battery Pack accessory.
As you might expect, the battery percentage for Apple’s battery case appears in the battery widget and on the lock screen.
Apple has not yet released official statistics on how much extra battery life the MagSafe Battery Pack offers. Total battery capacity is 1460 mAH, as can be seen on the back of the device in one of the product photos. Apple does say that the MagSafe Battery Pack will charge the connected iPhone with about 5W.
