Apple is said to be bringing back the MagSafe brand next week with the launch of the iPhone 12. 

A screenshot of information from Weibo user @kang, which is shared by tipster @UniverseIce, reveals that Apple is going to announce a new magnetic iPhone case with "MagSafe" and two official Apple wireless chargers. The two wireless chargers are expected to be called "MagSafe Charger" and MagSafe Duo Charger". At least one wireless charger will have a 15W power output.

If you recall, the Magsafe brand is used in the power connector on MacBooks from 2006. The MagSafe power connector was eventually discontinued and replaced by USB-C .

Leaked images of purported iPhone 12 cases indicate a circular array of magnets on the back of the device, which led to speculation that they could be used to align with Apple's own wireless charger. While Apple cancelled plans to launch the AirPower wireless charging pad, there are persistent rumours that it would make a comeback.
