Apple MagSafe Duo wireless charger is now listed on Apple Shop Online and lets users charge their iPhones, Apple Watch or AirPods simultaneously. Though the MagSafe Duo charger is not currently available to purchase, we expect Apple to start accepting orders for it soon since the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are already on sale and the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max are up for pre-orders.
However, if you are enticed about the proposition of charging your iPhone and Apple Watch, AirPods or any other Qi-certified devices simultaneously, be ready to shell out as much as Rs 13,900 for the MagSafe Duo Charger. The regular MagSafe Charger, on the other hand, is available at Rs 4,500 in India but is not compatible with Apple Watch models.
The MagSafe Duo wireless charger, when folded, has a square shape with rounded-off edges and the Apple logo is embossed in the centre. Opening up the charger, there’s a charging base on the left for placing the device and on the side, there’s another wireless base that can flip outwards to charge the Apple Watch.
Apple provides a USB-C to Lightning cable with the MagSafe Duo charger and recommends using a 20W power adapter with the wireless charger that it sells separately at Rs 1,900.
The MagSafe Duo wireless charger is compatible with iPhone 8 and above, all Apple Watch models, AirPods and other Qi-certified devices.
Additionally, Apple has also revealed leather sleeves for the iPhone 12 series in four different colours to choose from. The leather sleeves also come with MagSafe support and are priced at Rs 12,900. There’s currently no word on when the leather sleeves will go on sale in India for the iPhone 12.
Other accessories such as the silicone case, clear case, leather case and leather wallet are already up for sale on Apple Store Online starting at Rs 4,900. Apple iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max pre-orders are currently live in India and HDFC bank customers are eligible for an instant cashback of upto Rs 6,000 on pre-booking the phones.
