Apple MagSafe Battery Pack Can Now Charge Your iPhone Faster – How to Update

Apple released a new version 2.7 firmware update for its MagSafe Battery Pack that charges your iPhone faster. It now offers 7.5W charging on the go, compared to just 5W before the update.

To get 7.5W charging on the go, update your MagSafe Battery Pack to the latest firmware. The firmware update starts automatically when you connect your battery pack to your iPhone. The firmware update may take about a week.

Although it takes a week to update, it is quite a long time, there is a faster way to update.

To update the firmware using a Mac or iPad, plug one end of a Lightning to USB cable into the Lightning connector on your battery pack and the other end to your Mac or iPad. The firmware update will take about 5 minutes.

The MagSafe battery pack is compatible with the iPhone 12 and 13 series. Released in July 2021, it has not been one of Apple’s most well-liked accessories. With its thick size, iPhone users were disappointed that it could only charge at 5W. However, it has been a bit popular among iPhone 12 Mini users as the biggest complaint about that device was its short battery life. Overall, charging is still faster with the good 20W power adapter, but the MagSafe Battery Pack is a good choice for users on the go.

You can find your current firmware version by going to your iPhone settings, then General, About, MagSafe Battery Pack.
