Keynotes

  • Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack firmware patch, which was released 20th of April, now allows for 7.5W mobile charging.
  • The previous high point was 5 watts.
  • According to a support post, you may receive the 7.5W charge speed by downloading the updated 2.7.b.0 firmware for your MagSafe Battery Pack.
  • When the MagSafe Battery Pack was debuted in July 2021, it was discovered that it could only charge at a maximum of 5W when in use, causing a backlash.

7.5W mobile charging is now possible with Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack firmware upgrade, which was published on the 20th of April. The prior maximum was 5W.

A support article from Apple says that if you have a MagSafe Battery Pack, you can download the new 2.7.b.0 firmware to get the 7.5W charge speed.

An iPhone may be used to update the MagSafe battery pack, a procedure that can take a week, while a Mac or iPad can be used to update the battery pack within five minutes. Apple recommends connecting a Lightning wire to a MagSafe battery pack and then plugging the USB end into an iPad or Mac to begin the updating process.

Connect your MagSafe Battery Pack to your iPhone and look at Settings > General > About > MagSafe Battery Pack to see what firmware version it is running. For 7.5W charging, you’ll need version 2.7.b.0.

There was a backlash against the MagSafe Battery Pack when it was introduced in July 2021 and it was found that it could only charge at a maximum of 5W when in use. Using a Lightning connection, the MagSafe Battery Pack can charge at a full 15W, but that is not feasible if it is used without a power supply.

As of right now, users of the compatible iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models who have installed the software update may charge their devices at a quicker rate of 7.5W. As compared to the fastest possible Qi charging rates for the iPhone, this method is still a step below the 15W MagSafe charger.
