Apple surprised us on Tuesday with just put his latest iPhone accessory on sale. The $99 . MagSafe Battery Pack isn’t the first power cell we’ve seen that uses Apple’s new magnetic system to connect to the iPhone 12 family (Anker offers a pack of 5,000 mAh with slower 5W charging for $45.99), but it’s Apple’s first and can charge up to 15W while plugged in.

MacRumors and 9to5Mac point to a support document that helps answer a few questions we had about the device right away, including confirmation that it will be unlocked the “secret” reverse charging feature of the iPhone 12. While i’ll fix it haven’t seen one additional hardware to add wireless charging, FCC filings revealed the company’s plan to let your accessories charge while the iPhone 12 is plugged in and charging, complete with diagrams that now look very familiar.

Like Apple’s support page explains:

Charge your MagSafe Battery Pack and your iPhone

If both your iPhone and MagSafe Battery Pack need to be charged, you can charge them at the same time. Attach your MagSafe Battery Pack to your iPhone, then connect the MagSafe Battery Pack to a power adapter. With a power adapter of 20W or higher, the MagSafe battery pack can charge your iPhone with up to 15W of charging power.

You can also charge both if you plug your MagSafe Battery Pack into your iPhone and then plug your iPhone into a power source. You may want to charge this way if you need to connect your iPhone to another device while charging, such as using wired CarPlay or transferring photos to a Mac.

If you charge your iPhone and MagSafe Battery Pack at the same time, your iPhone may charge to 80% or more before your MagSafe Battery Pack begins to charge.

Notably, reverse charging only works (so far) with this accessory, after an upcoming software update, and only while the iPhone 12 is plugged in. Google’s Pixel 5 can work as a Qi pad while plugged in, and Samsung devices have been charging anything you hit them for a few years now, but now Apple users can enjoy a similar feature. Will this new capability also charge your AirPods, Apple Watch, or anything else in the future? Apple isn’t saying it (yet).

Also, in case you missed it, one image of the battery pack revealed the capacity specs: 1460mAh, 7.62V, 11.13Wh. We’ll have to do some testing to find out how much charging it can add in real life, but it’s worth remembering that in this case, the number of watt-hours of charging more important figure to focus on, as seen with Apple’s old non-magnetic battery cases.
