Apple products are really different, even power banks can update firmware… wirelessly

Apple recently released a new firmware update version 2.7 for the MagSafe power bank, thereby helping to charge the iPhone battery faster. It currently offers 7.5W charging, compared to just 5W before the update.

To charge at 7.5W, update your MagSafe Battery Pack to the latest firmware. The update will start automatically once you attach this power bank to your iPhone. The firmware update process may take about a week.

Although it takes a week to update is quite a long time, there is a faster way to update.

To update firmware using your Mac or iPad, plug one end of the Lightning to USB cable into the Lightning port on your MagSafe Battery Pack and the other end into your Mac or iPad. The firmware update process will take about 5 minutes.

The MagSafe Battery Pack is compatible with the iPhone 12 and 13 series. Released in July 2021, it's not one of Apple's most loved accessories. With its thick size, iPhone users were very disappointed because it could only charge at 5W. However, it is quite popular with iPhone 12 mini users because the biggest complaint about the device is the short battery life. Overall, although the power support is quite slow, it is an accessory loved by those who are often on the go.

You can find the current firmware version on your MagSafe power bank model by going to iPhone Settings, then General > About > MagSafe Battery Pack.
