A support document on Apple’s website states that MagSafe charging on Apple’s upcoming model iPhone 12 mini is limited to a maximum of 12W, something that differs from the other models in the iPhone 12 series that can be charged with up to 15W via the MagSafe connector .

However, it is not clear why Apple’s smallest model can not be charged at the same speed as the other iPhone 12 models. The support document also states that all iPhone 12 models throttle the charge via MagSafe to 7.5W if you have an accessory connected to the iPhone 12’s lightning connector, for example a pair of EarPods. This is a restriction introduced due to various safety regulations.

iPhone mini will be available for pre-order now on Friday 6 November and deliveries will start on 13 November.
