Belkin Unveils First MagSafe Accessories for iPhone 12
Belkin unveiled new MagSafe accessories for the brand-new iPhone 12 lineup.
According to a new press release, long-time iPhone accessory maker Belkin has announced a series of new MagSafe accessories plus a screen protector for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineup.
Both of the new devices — a 3-in-1 charger for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, as well as a car vent mount — were briefly shown during the MagSafe portion of Apple’s event yesterday.
“Belkin is already working on a couple of new accessories – a car mount and a multi-charger dock,” said Deniz Teoman, Apple’s vice president of Hardware Systems Engineering. “We can’t wait to see the innovative ways that others will use MagSafe, creating a robust and ever-expanding ecosystem.”
First, Belkin’s BOOST↑CHARGE PRO MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charger (seen above) comes with a flat base that includes a 5-watt wireless charging location for AirPods, while a chrome stand with two arms have places to wirelessly charge an iPhone and an Apple Watch
Up to 15 watts up power is available for iPhone charging, twice of what is normally supported with regular Qi wireless charging. Belkin says the 3-in-1 charger will be available “winter 2020” for $149.99 USD and will ship in black and white color options.
For vehicle use, Belkin announced the MagSafe Car Vent PRO, which easily mounts on a vent with a slim profile and multiple orientations to use one’s iPhone 12. While the device doesn’t offer any charging capabilities of its own, it does have cable management in the back for easy cable charging. The mount will be available this winter at $39.95 USD.
Finally, Belkin announced a set of UltraGlass screen protectors made of lithium aluminosilicate for impact and scratch resistance, coming in both regular and privacy versions.
“Working alongside Apple has enabled us to design accessories that are an ideal complement to our customers’ most personal devices,” said Steven Malony, senior vice president and general manager of Belkin International. “We’re excited to delight consumers by connecting them to the technology and experiences they love and can’t wait to introduce these new accessories for iPhone users.”
