With little to no warning, Apple has officially released its highly-anticipated MagSafe Duo charger!

The product went live on the online Apple Store, ready for purchase on Tuesday, more than a month after it was announced at October's virtual event.

The Details

Costing $129, or $10.75 per month for 12 months, you can expect the dual-device charger to arrive December 4 or as early as December 3 with expedited shipping if orders are placed today.

Featuring a tight, foldable design with iPhone 12 series handset and Apple Watch support, charging is achieved via connecting the MagSafe Duo to a USB-C adapter—which is actually sold separately.

Moreover, the MagSafe Duo was claimed to deliver 15W of power (12W for an iPhone 12 mini), with a 20W adapter. In reality, the hardware design restricts charging capabilities for all iPhone 12 models.

So, courtesy of the official Apple Store page, a 20W adapter will provide your iPhone will 11W of wireless charge, while the 27W or higher will give up to 14W of wireless charge. We cover more of that here, along with the confusion caused by selling the USB-C adapter on its own.

Surprise Release

There were whispers since early November, there were whispersSince on the imminent release of the MagSafe Duo charger, with the product being listed as "Coming Soon" for weeks on the Apple website.

Digitec Galaxus, an authorized reseller in Switzerland, had the charger available for online order, stating that they would be delivered between December 16 to December 23, causing many customers to believe the MagSafe Duo was almost here.

Now that the MagSafe Duo charger has officially arrived, we await the reviews of how Apple customers feel purchasing USB-C adapters separately and if the overall reception will be favorable on the product's wireless charging capacities.
