iPhone 12 Pro teardown shows how many magnets it takes to make MagSafe work iPhone 12 Pro review

One of the biggest new features for the iPhone 12 range is MagSafe – a tech that allows you to magnetically attach wireless chargers and accessories to the back of the phone, and thanks to a teardown of the iPhone 12 Pro we now know that rather than one large magnet, it uses 18 small ones.

These are arranged in a circle around the wireless charging coil, and you can see how they look in JerryRigEverything’s teardown video which revealed them.
