One of the most noticeable features of the newly unveiled iPhone 12 is its wireless charging capability __ especially MagSafe.

MagSafe was first introduced with notebooks. Apple applied to its MacBook in 2006. The power connector had a magnet in it.

Cupertino MagSafe 2 that decreased the size of the power connector in 2012. Most people expected the tech to be applied to iPhones and iPads.

But MacBook’s MagSafe was replaced with USB-C on November 2016.
