While Apple confirmed the release of its next-generation iPhone 13 series and Apple Watch 7 series (probably available in limited quantities at launch) on September 14, a recent FCC document suggests that the Cupertino giant might as well. launch a new MagSafe loader at the event. The company reportedly added the new MagSafe charger to the FCC database recently and plans to release the product along with its upcoming iPhone 13 models.
The report comes from 9to5Mac, stating that the new MagSafe charger has a model number of A2548. This is certainly different from the A2140 model number of current MagSafe chargers that were released with the iPhone 12 series last year.
The report states that Apple submitted the new MagSafe charger test unit to the FCC on August 13, less than a month ago. Since then, the charger has been tested with several iPhone models, including the iPhone 12 and four “New Phone” units, which are presumably the iPhone 13 series devices.
According to the report, the FCC tested the MagSafe unit with “Legacy Phone” models with model numbers A2341, A2176, A2172 and A2342. These are essentially the model numbers of the iPhone 12 units.
Now, it’s worth mentioning that the new MagSafe charger doesn’t look too different from existing models. The report also states that Apple sometimes changes the model numbers of its products, even when there is a small change in them.
Therefore, we can safely assume that the new MagSafe charger will not come with any major changes. However, it may come with stronger magnets or higher charging efficiency for future iPhone models. We’ll know more about this as soon as Apple officially launches the product at its September 14th event. So stay tuned for more information.
