Samsung, Google forced to adopt iPhone MagSafe charging! Best thing to happen to Android in 2023?

As someone who was still using an iPhone with a home button well into 2022, switching to the iPhone 13 mini has given me a new perspective on the superior hardware capabilities offered by Apple’s new flagship phones. I was…

In fact, I find these features so useful that I think Android devices could benefit from borrowing some of them.

air is an open interface standard that defines wireless power transfer using inductive charging at distances up to 1.6 inches (4 cm).Developed by wireless power consortium, the system uses the charging pad and compatible devices (smartphones, smartwatches, wireless earbuds) to wirelessly charge by placing them on the pad.It is believed that there are more than 500 manufacturers comply with the standard include Apple, Samsung, Google, Asus, Motorola, OnePlus, Sony, Huawei, Xiaomi more.

Sure enough, the next-generation Qi charging standard (Qi2) for all phones that support wireless charging is now set to incorporate Apple’s MagSafe magnetic charging feature! AlsoQi2 should soon become the new unified wireless charging standard around the world, and it is based on the “MagSafe” charging technology provided by Apple! Again… good.I know (and I agree) that foldable Android phones, variable apertures, and 1-inch camera sensors are the most technically impressive hardware innovations we’ve seen in the last decade. I have a question here… How practical and applicable are these features in practice on a day-to-day basis?

On the one hand, you charge your phone every day, and you know the fact that many people can’t help but charge their phones multiple times a day – be it via a cable or via an external battery pack. It doesn’t matter if…

That’s why I believe it’s important to talk about how important MagSafe is to the smartphone industry and users.Why Every Android User Should Applaud Apple’s Revolutionary Push, And More samsung, Google and other Android phone makers should probably copy from the iPhone, not much help… I had already planned a similar story, so I’ll throw in the last bit as a “bonus”.

Apple’s revolutionary MagSafe charging technology will come to Android by the end of 2023. Why Galaxy and Pixel users are excited

As I missed it, it was precisely MagSafe that turned out to be one of the most useful features for me after switching from my old iPhone 8 in the spring of 2022. This was amazing. Of course, the main idea behind the MagSafe charger is to make the wireless charging experience more efficient by aligning the back of your phone with the charger.This is great! MagSafe charger doesn’t help much.

This is because, at its core, the MagSafe charger doesn’t look any different from what my Lightning cable already does! in the meantimeCharging my iPhone is still very connected cablefor MagSafe it actually charges my phone noticeably Slower ratio!

What makes MagSafe great and what Android users should really be excited about is the MagSafe accessories, not the MagSafe chargers

But like many Apple products and hardware innovations, the secret lies in the product’s simplicity and, of course, great functionality. In this case, you have to look beyond MagSafe. charger To find out what’s special about cell phone magnets, and for me it’s my beloved… MagSafe battery pack! XO.

As iPhone 13 mini users consciously adopted the smallest battery among flagship phones. Apple’s magnet-attached battery packs have been called “lifesavers.” For me, it’s especially true when I’m on the go. Interestingly, I only purchased the MagSafe battery pack about a month ago (especially for long trips) and already know I won’t be leaving my travel fanny pack anytime soon.

Remember Rock is wearing a fanny pack too.

iPhone-like MagSafe wireless charging could come to Pixel 8, Galaxy S24, giving people (ironically) a big reason to choose Android over iPhone 15

Pros and cons, it’s almost certain (potentially) that MagSafe will come to Android phones in the second half of 2023.

This means Technically (keyword: technically), like the upcoming Android phones Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, OnePlus 11T (if you have one), and many more could actually be offered. It has wireless charging like the iPhone 15 and is supported by magnets. exciting!

That being said, my educatedtry to guess It’s a Chinese phone maker (read: Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo) will be on the MagSafe train wagon significantly sooner than the likes of Samsung and Google. Sure, it’s partly thanks to its general “be first” attitude, but Samsung’s foldable phone (coming in August) is a device that works in very confined spaces and has a larger footprint. If you use a battery, you may be able to use it more effectively… .

Google, on the other hand, happens to have far less… adventurous As for timely hardware upgrades (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing). Of course, Pixel phones are significantly cheaper than Samsung and Apple’s flagships, so Sundar Pichai & Co would have another good reason to skip his MagSafe for the Pixel 8 series!

Android finally borrowed a really useful feature from Apple, but there’s more iPhone hardware worth “stealing”

No, since I started…

I hope you get what I’m trying to suggest with my cheeky “texttone”, but yes – Android should borrow a few more iPhone features (especially hardware-related ones). I am proposing! Nothing goes here…

  • The iPhone’s alert slider (oneplus flagship phones already have it) is something every Android device can benefit from, and every Android user deserves.remember me too Being a Pixel 7 Pro user and I’ll admit – my Android guy wants an alert slider quite often.

  • Face recognition! I’ve probably just lost half of you on this one, but as a huge Touch ID supporter myself, I can’t deny that I switched from my iPhone 8 and Pixel 6 Pro to the iPhone 13 with Face ID. . converteddon’t get me wrong, the ideal solution is still to have both Face ID and Touch ID, but Apple’s facial unlock technology is just as secure and fast as Touch ID. , which is decidedly less unstable than when it was first released. on iPhone X. You still can’t unlock your iPhone from any angle, but once you get used to it…

The (long-term) future of wireless charging isn’t MagSafe, but it’s a better alternative to what Android currently has

The new wireless charging standard from MagSage and the Wireless Power Consortium could be an improved version of what is now known as wireless charging on Android, but I say… Don’t confuse “upgrade” with “innovation”.

by radio (OTA) charging is something companies have been experimenting with for years. The reason is what we expect the ultimate version of wireless charging to be sooner or later! chargingNo effort, no drama.

But that is easier said than done, as over the years many companies have failed to offer a consumer version of OTA charging. Motherbox, Wi-Charge, Energous, Motorola, and most recently Xiaomi have all shown prototypes of wireless charging stations that, apart from not being ready to market, are highly inefficient (5W charging reaching speed) and was potentially harmful. A technology that requires multiple antennas to communicate with another special antenna on a mobile phone (which modern mobile phones lack).

So if it’s out the door, what’s left? MagSafe? Maybe! However my personal view is that the visionary and money owned tech giants will really come up with a way to keep the battery from dying but not necessarily via the antenna maybe… What if it was solar powered?

Let us know how excited you are to see MagSafe coming to phones like the Galaxy S24 and Pixel 8, and why! I am all ears/eyes.
