Every iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 model supports MagSafe. This allows them to be compatible with an ecosystem of magnetic accessories, but more importantly, it allows them to wirelessly charge better and faster.

MagSafe Wireless Chargers vs Qi Wireless Chargers
A true MagSafe charger can charge an iPhone 12, iPhone 13 or iPhone 14 at 15 watts, which is twice as fast as the 7.5 watts that any iPhone can charge when using a Qi-wireless charger. The only catch is that the new “mini” iPhones, which support MagSafe, can only charge at a max of 12 watts over MagSafe (which is still much faster than over standard Qi).
Of course, no matter if it’s a MagSafe wireless charger or a Qi wireless charger, it’s going to be limited by the power adapter you pair it with. Most wireless chargers do not come with a compatible wall adapter — brands do this to keep the cost down (and as an environmental initiative) — so you’ll need to buy one separately. You’ll want to buy a wall adapter that’s 20-watt (or higher) so that it can properly power your MagSafe wireless charger.
There are a few true MagSafe wireless chargers available right now. A lot of third-party chargers aren’t true MagSafe chargers because, while they can magnetically hold and charge your iPhone, they aren’t approved by Apple and so will only charge it at 7.5-watts and not the faster 15-watt charging speeds.
So before buying one, make sure you know exactly what you’re getting.

Wireless Chargers That Fully Support MagSafe
A true MagSafe charger is one that can charge supported iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 handsets at up to 15 watts, which is twice as fast as wireless chargers that don’t fully support MagSafe. All true MagSafe chargers have to be approved and certified by Apple, which is why there aren’t as many out there.

Wireless Chargers That Do Not Fully Support MagSafe
The following wireless chargers have built-in magnetics that hold and charge your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13. However, they have not been approved and certified by Apple and therefore don’t support MagSafe’s fast charging. This means that they max out at 7.5 watts instead of the 15 watts that MagSafe promises.
