Hey Guys, I’ve been using my Mag Safe Charger on my IPhone 12 Pro with a Silicone iPhone case for about a day now.

I’ve noticed that when I have my Mag Safe charger attached and using my phone at the same time I sometimes get little static shocks.

Also, the Mag Safe charge also gets pretty hot sometimes.

Any one else experiencing this?

I don’t think the shocks should be of concern, just a little annoying.
