The document claims that there is a small QR code printed near the phone’s camera. Moreover, it still bears the phrase “Designed by Apple in California”. The charging mechanism itself is arranged in a circle made up of 36 magnetic pieces. It would also be compatible with NFC technology.
In fact, the new charging system for the iPhone 12 is being compared to the “AirPower” project. It was developed by Apple a few years ago but never got implemented on any device. In addition to the leaks seen in this document, Apple had already registered some patents for its new fast-charging system. More recently, the company also purchased sets of parts with 20W chargers. Thus, it is expected that in addition to the iPhone 12 having 20W fast wired charging. It may also support 15W wireless fast charging.
Regarding the batteries, it is worth remembering that in July, some photos revealed that the iPhone 12 could use models with a lower charging capacity. However, this does not mean that the device’s battery will be impaired. Apple, for its part, did not comment on the document that appeared on the Chinese social network. Thus, all the details regarding fast charging and NFC technology are still taken as rumors or leaks.
