Today, Apple released a $99 USD MagSafe Battery Pack, which is compatible with all four iPhone 12 models. The wireless charger boasts up to 5W of portable power and up to 15W when connected to a 20W or higher power source.

The charger is the newest addition to the Apple ecosystem of MagSafe accessories, featuring cases, chargers, wallets and more.
