Apple has cut the charging power of the iPhone 13 mini

The standard Apple MagSafe charger supports up to 15W of power, however, last year's iPhone 12 mini was limited to a lower peak power of 12W. This was done to avoid overheating that could occur in the smaller case.

As it turns out, this limitation also applies to the brand new iPhone 13 mini, which went on sale today along with the rest of the iPhone 13 line. Given the nearly identical case sizes for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini, it should come as no surprise that the limitation applies to both devices.

The smaller battery on the iPhone 13 mini also means it takes less time to charge. Therefore, under real-world conditions, an iPhone 13 with a 15-watt wired charger can charge for about the same amount of time as an iPhone 13 mini with a 12-watt wireless charger.

There is another topic related to MagSafe that is actively discussed on the web: the iPhone 13 Pro with the standard Apple case does not quite fit correctly on the MagSafe Duo Charger, as shown in the video. However, the phone is being charged.

The iPhone 13 smartphones, as well as the iPad 9 and iPad mini 6 tablets, are officially on sale today (or will, depending on the region). I also published an instruction describing how to transfer data.
