We already have a lot of information about the (expanded) iPhone 12 line-up and (with two exceptions) they look ready to impress. But now we know Apple has added a surprise upgrade which no-one saw coming.
Axar.az informs that, according to new supply chain images and schematics attained by hugely popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro), Apple is fitting a ring of magnets into the chassis of its iPhone 12 models. Moreover, the discovery has left industry insiders baffled over its function.
Koroy theorizes that it is “Potentially mounting or charging related, possibly even for a‘ snap in ’wireless charger solution”. This is highly plausible, especially if Apple is looking to road test options ahead of the iPhone going wireless-only in 2021. Could it even be related to their surprisingly small batteries?
That said, other leakers disagree with iHacktu Pro saying it is for inverted charging while Komiya specifically states it is “Not for reverse charging” but doesn’t offer an alternative use. Consequently, for the first time in several years, Apple appears to have stumped the leaker community.
