While Apple confirmed its next-gen iPhone 13 series and Apple Watch Series 7 (likely to be available in limited quantities at launch) on September 14, recent FCC filings suggest that Cupertino giant may charge MagSafe new release at the event. It was reported that the company recently added the new MagSafe charger to the FCC database and aims to release the product alongside the upcoming iPhone 13 models.
The report comes from 9to5Mac, saying the new MagSafe charger has a model number A2548. This is definitely different from the A2140 model number of the current MagSafe chargers that launched with the iPhone 12 series last year.
The report claims that Apple submitted the new MagSafe charger test unit to the FCC on Aug. 13, which is less than a month ago. Since then, the charger has been tested with various iPhone models, including an iPhone 12 and four “New Phone” units, which are likely iPhone 13 series devices.
According to the report, FCC tested the MagSafe unit with “Legacy Phone” models with model numbers A2341, A2176, A2172, and A2342. These are basically iPhone 12 unit model numbers.
Now, it is worth mentioning that the new MagSafe charger does not look very different than the existing models. The report also says that Apple sometimes changes the model numbers of its products even when they are slightly changed.
Hence, we can safely assume that the new MagSafe charger will not undergo any major change. However, it may lead to stronger magnets or improved charging efficiency for future iPhone models. We’ll let him know more about when Apple officially launches the product at its September 14 event. So be sure to stay tuned for more information.
