MagSafe Duo Charger Works With iPhone 13 Pro Cases, Despite Minor Fit Issues

Earlier today, a report highlighted that an iPhone 13 Pro with a case doesn't lay fully flat on the MagSafe Duo charger, igniting concerns about possible compatibility issues. Even if the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ doesn’t lay fully flat on the charger, it will, however, still charge normally.

For better context, a video posted by MKBHD shows that an ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ with a case is slightly elevated off of the ‌MagSafe‌ Duo Charger due to its more prominent camera bump. Despite the elevation, the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ will still charge as normal thanks to ‌MagSafe‌, and the slight fit issue has no impact on charging performance or speed.


Apple lists the ‌MagSafe‌ Duo charger as compatible with all models of the iPhone 13 lineup, and customers that are worried that the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ won't be compatible with the charger should rest assured that it will be.

I’m glad that it still works. However, this fit issue is not something that should be happening on a 129$ Apple product that is 10 months old

For sure - 10% smaller and this one will use Apple's new 39w USB-C charger to allow faster Apple Watch charging*

*Wall charger not included.

It really seems like there is a communications breakdown within Apple, like every single product is completely siloed. I feel like it was just dumb luck now that the battery case and wallet work with the 13 Pro (They are extremely close, just a mm away from the camera bump.)

Ugly, why? It’s not meant for a constant table side solution. I’m a flight attendant so I’m constantly on the go. For me its the perfect solution to have in my bag. Fold it up, have one charger and one cable, charges all of my devices on my layover.
