Although the release of the iPhone 13 has not yet been officially confirmed, leaks continue to emerge. In a statement to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a revised MagSafe Charger has emerged that could ship with the new iPhone lineup. The US FCC listing also mentions the iPhone 12 models as legacy devices, while the iPhone 13 includes four new phone items that could be a series of variants. Alongside the new iPhone models, the upgraded MagSafe Charger appears to have been tested on AirPods Pro.

The US FCC list was first discovered by Dave Zatz. In the list is the new MagSafe Charger with model number A2548. This shows that there is a different listing from the current charger, which Apple released with the iPhone 12 family last year and identified as A2140.

The US FCC filing listed on August 13 shows the next MagSafe Charger being tested on a list of devices. The list includes older phones with model numbers A2341, A2172, A2176 and A2342. The models pointing to these model numbers are iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini, respectively. The FCC filing shows that the MagSafe Charger has been tested on four new Apple phone models alongside current iPhone models. These devices can be iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Mini. However, the listing does not include any model numbers to give concrete detail.

Predicting Apple smartphones, Max Weinbach suggested earlier this year that the 2021 iPhone models will include an advanced MagSafe technology with stronger magnets than those found on the iPhone 12 models. It is estimated that there are some improvements in the size of the wireless charging coil and the charging speed. In addition, it was reported in July that the iPhone 13 models could carry reverse wireless charging via the new MagSafe technology.

Finally, it should be noted that Apple may introduce the new MagSafe Charger and some other accessories at the September event where the new iPhone 13 models will be introduced.
