Apple has mention four unreleased iPhone models in a recently updated FCC filing for its MagSafe charger. The filing refers to the current iPhone 12 lineup as “legacy” iPhones.
The new filing, while not revealing any details about a possible update to the MagSafe charger, lists four “New iPhone” items listed in the equipment section of the filing. It also lists four “legacy” devices, A2176, A2172, A2341, and A2342, which are the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, respectively.
While Apple registered four new iPhone models in the EEC database earlier this summer, the new FCC filing does not mention any model numbers related to the “New iPhone” devices. This makes it difficult to make a connection between the FCC and EEC filings.
As mentioned by MacRumors, Apple is expected to be improving the strength of the MagSafe magnets on the back of the new iPhones. While the new filing doesn’t mention that, Apple may have been required to retest the charger due to the increased power of the magnets.
