MagSafe-Compatible iPhone Accessories Coming From PopSocket
Apple's new iPhone 12 models are equipped with a ring of magnets in the back that allows them to work with a range of new accessories, including a new magnet-based MagSafe charger that snaps right onto the back of the device.
Apple is creating a line of magnetic accessories, and third-party companies are also working on useful new accessories that will be able to take advantage of the magnetic system. One company that plans to make use of that magnet ring in the iPhone 12 models is PopSocket.
PopSocket, which makes a super popular line of Grip accessories that attach to the back with adhesive, told TechCrunch that it is working on PopSocket products for the new iPhones.
PopSockets will support Apple’s MagSafe technology, TechCrunch has confirmed — meaning you’ll soon be able to pop on and off these ubiquitous iPhone accessories without worrying about the sticker on the back losing its adhesiveness over time and needing a rinse.
Though PopSockets confirmed it has MagSafe products in the works, there's no additional detail available at this time nor do we know when the first MagSafe-based PopSockets might launch.
