At now, everybody who follows technology knows that Apple is about to reveal new iPhones later this month. While we don’t know exactly what the new smartphone will bring or maybe what they’re going to be involved sure, speculation suggests the iPhone 13 line is coming soon. a replacement FCC filing has been published showing an updated MagSafe charger that would launch alongside the iPhone 13 line.
The filing outlines details about the new charger offering info on bandwidth, emissions, and other details. With the FCC publication, the charger has been approved purchasable, and a couple of details did surface within the FCC filing. Of note is that the charger can deliver 15 watts of power to an iPhone while delivering one watt for charging AirPods.
The assumption is that the charger will be called MagSafe, but the FCC filing doesn’t mention that name anywhere. What’s clear within the document is that the cable may be a magnetic iPhone charger. Its output power is the same as currently available chargers, and it’s a similarly sized round puck.
The round puck is the portion of the charger that attaches to the rear of the iPhone models magnetically. Presumably, since the charger had to travel through the FCC for brand spanking new approvals, Apple has made some changes. However, it’s not clear what changes are made. Some rumors have suggested that a replacement MagSafe charger with more power output was coming, but consistent with the documentation, that isn’t correct.
Speculation now suggests that the iPhone 13 smartphones coming soon may need a bigger charging coil. A bigger charging coil inside the smartphone would mean the MagSafe charger needed to be changed, which might need to be approved by the FCC. Documentation shows the updated charger carries model number A2548; the present cable is A2140.
