The iPhone 12 is packed with many awesome features: a powerful camera, OLED displays, and Apple’s A14 chip. What’s more, it also supports 5G cellular networks.
And that’s not all.
Rumor has it, the new iPhone may also have a hidden feature that allows for reverse wireless charging. Apple’s FCC filings that were publicized recently show that the iPhone 12 has an integrated charging transmitter and receiver. It can be charged by a desktop WPT (wireless power transfer) or a wireless charger.
The phone can also charge devices wirelessly–because it supports WPT charging at 360 kHz. All the iPhone 2020 models—iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max–support wireless charging. The highest reverse wireless charging speed is 5 watts.
The iPhone 12 supports Apple’s new MagSafe charging standard, a charging option for iPhones. To summarize, MagSafe uses magnets to properly align your iPhone on a wireless charger. Apple previously used Qi wireless charging which was less advanced. If your iPhone wasn’t perfectly aligned, it would charge at a slower pace. Rumor has it that Apple could use the MagSafe standard to fast charge wireless accessories, like a future version of AirPods.
What Is Reverse Wireless Charging?
It’s an excellent feature that allows an iPhone to charge other devices that support wireless charging–like smartphones and smartwatches. However, for the devices to be charged wirelessly, they must support the Qi wireless charging protocol or the MagSafe standard.
To illustrate, MagSafe transforms your iPhone into a charging pad, allowing it to charge other devices. But it’s worth mentioning that your iPhone can only charge one device at a time. Also, the reverse wireless charging feature may be automatically disabled when the battery level is low (less than 20%).
The MagSafe standard also allows the iPhone 12 to be charged wirelessly. You can use a RAVPower wireless charger for iPhone 12 to quickly charge your new phone. Most of our wireless chargers can power Qi-enabled phones and AirPods with a wireless charging case.
