The date for Apple’s marquee September event should come any day now and as we await it, iPhone 13 rumors are starting to heat up. The latest bit of speculation comes from an FCC filing suggesting that the new range of Apple handsets will launch alongside an upgraded MagSafe Charger.
Spotted by frequent leakster Dave Zatz, the listing in question speaks about a MagSafe Charger with the model number A2548. The existing charger that had arrived along with the iPhone 12 range has the model number A2140.
The listing itself states that the new MagSafe charger was tested on “Legacy Phone” devices, particularly phones with model numbers A2341, A2172, A2176, and A2342. No prizes for guessing that these are the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 Mini.
There was also a mention of four new smartphones that the charger was tested on. Their model numbers aren’t mentioned but these are most definitely the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 Mini that are set to launch this month. These are expected to have smaller notches, 120Hz displays, camera improvements, under-display fingerprint scanners, and of course, the A15 chip.
Coming back to the MagSafe charger, it’s unclear what kind of upgrades it will bear. However, there have been murmurs in the past that Apple is working on improving the magnets onboard.
On a related note, rumors are also rife that this year’s iPhones would finally allow reverse wireless charging. 25W fast charging support is also expected to make its way onto the iPhone 13 range.
The much-awaited launch date of the iPhone 13 range hasn’t officially been announced yet but we can certainly tell you it isn’t too far away from now.
