IPhone 12 Mini charges slower than other iPhone 12 models
(IPhone 12), (iPhone 12 Pro) and (iPhone 12 Pro Max) get charging speeds of up to 15 watts via the (MagSafe) charger, but the device (iPhone 12 mini) is limited to charging speeds of up to 12 watts.
And Apple says: The iPhone mini can access 12 watts through a 9V or higher (USB-C) power adapter.
The support document indicates that the power supplied to any iPhone 12 model at any time will vary according to various factors, including temperature and system activity.
This maximum power delivery of 12 watts may be disappointing, but it is still faster than 7.5 watts of charging that you would get if you used (iPhone 12 mini) with a standard Qi wireless charger.
The support document also indicates that when Lightning accessories, such as EarPods, are connected to any iPhone 12 model, the MagSafe charger is limited to a 7.5W charging capacity, in order to comply with regulatory standards.
And Apple says: You must plug the (MagSafe) charger into a power source before putting an iPhone on it, because this allows the charger to verify that it is safe to provide maximum power.
And if you put your iPhone on a (MagSafe) charger before plugging it into the power source, just remove the phone, wait for three seconds, and then put it back on to resume maximum power delivery.
(MagSafe) is a new feature in all models of (iPhone 12) that allows attaching magnetic accessories to the back of devices, including the charger (MagSafe) from Apple for more accurate wireless charging.
IPhone 12 mini, on the other hand, has the same specifications as (iPhone 12), including the Apple A14 Bionic chip, the dual-camera system, and support for the fifth generation (5G) networks, but it is contained in a smaller body with a screen size of 5.4 inches.
The price of the phone starts at $ 729 and will be available for initial order on November 6, while a charger (MagSafe) is now available for $ 39.
