Apple is said to be working on a MagSafe Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 12. It would charge the models of the current lineup wirelessly and magnetically adhere to the device. However, Apple is once again struggling with development problems that can make the entire product fail.

The whole project is still on the brink

There were always real ones Overheating of prototypes, sometimes to insurmountable problems with the software. Against this background, the question must be allowed: Is Apple’s propagated strategy of a wireless future completely without cables really more than an attempt to rebel against the bitter truth of continuing failure?
