Apple MagSafe Duo Charger Certified By Korea's NRRA, Suggesting a Launch Soon

Apple's unreleased MagSafe Duo Charger has passed Korea's National Radio Research Agency (NRRA) compliance test, a possible indication that the wireless charging pad is almost ready for shipment.

Apple announced the ‌MagSafe‌ Duo during its ‌iPhone 12‌ launch event in October. The charging accessory is vaguely reminiscent of Apple's canceled AirPower charging mat, featuring space to charge both an ‌‌‌iPhone 12‌‌‌ and Apple Watch (but not ‌AirPods‌) at the same time.

Apple hasn't provided specific availability or price details for the charging pad, and it's not yet listed on Apple's online store. Apple's ‌iPhone 12‌ press release simply says that it will be arriving at a "later date."

However, we still have pre-orders to come for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max starting on Friday, November 6, and there is one more Apple event this year on November 10, when Apple is expected to announce its first Apple Silicon powered Macs, so it's not unreasonable to suppose we could see the ‌MagSafe‌ Duo launch around one of these dates, too.

(Thanks, Joohyeong Jake Lee!)

Of all Magsafe accessories, I am genuinely interested with this one.. Surprisingly useful with Watch/iPhone charging at the same time, then being foldable I can bring it anywhere I go to charge 2 of my most useful Apple devices.

I just hope it doesn't cost $299 to begin with.

Or maybe even on Friday alongside the pre-orders of the 12 mini & Pro Max.
The leather cases are supposed to be available on the same date.

Whatever prices users here guess, Apple usually charges higher than that ??‍♂️
Depends who’s guessing ?

If you would have described the $39 MagSafe charger and asked for price estimates before its release, I think you would have seen a lot of guesses in the $59-79 range, and more than a few at $99 or higher. I’m not sure how many would have guessed $39.

Apple could have easily priced the thing at $49 or $59. Pricing it at $39 shows Apple wants to sell a ton of these.

Before the 16” MBP was released, there were estimates from (iirc) about $2,699 to $3,999. No one could believe it was priced at $2,399—the same as the 15”. Effectively it was actually a price cut, because they increased the base SSD (again, iirc).

Hoping Apple thought this one through. If removing the iPhone from the dual charger lifts up the Apple Watch charger and Apple Watch due to the magnet then fail.

I hope the charging pad is weighed down.
