While the iPhone 12 Pro does not launch until Friday, we now have an early unboxing video of the device courtesy of Twitter account DuanRui, providing a closer look at the shiny new flat-edge design and sleek Graphite color option.

Ben Geskin re-uploaded the unboxing video to YouTube, which we've embedded below:

Geskin has also uploaded an unboxing video of the iPhone 12 in Blue:

More unboxing videos have surfaced for Apple's new MagSafe Charger and cases, which magnetically attach to the back of iPhone 12 models.

In addition to the iPhone 12 lineup, Apple notes that its MagSafe Charger is compatible with the iPhone 8 through iPhone 11 Pro Max, but the charger does not magnetically attach to those devices. The MagSafe Charger is also limited to 7.5W on older iPhones, compared to 15W on iPhone 12 models.

Aaron Zollo of ZolloTech demonstrated this backwards compatibility by charging an iPhone 8 and iPhone 11 Pro Max with the MagSafe Charger. The charger is also compatible with AirPods and AirPods Pro cases, but not the Apple Watch.

As for other MagSafe accessories, YouTube channel MrHtech has shared an unboxing video of Apple's new Silicone Case for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro in five colors: Navy, Plum, Pink Citrus, Cyprus Green, and Kumquat. Notably, the Silicone Case now covers the bottom of the iPhone, with cutouts for the Lightning connector, speaker, and microphone.

Photos of the (PRODUCT)RED version of the Silicone Case with MagSafe and other accessories can be found in the MacRumors forums.

YouTube channel iCrackUriDevice has shared an unboxing of the Clear Case with MagSafe for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Unlike the new Silicone Case, the Clear Case continues to expose the bottom edge of the iPhone.

MagSafe cases will begin arriving to most customers on Friday, while the Leather Wallet with MagSafe appears to be slated for delivery in November. Apple's MagSafe Duo Charger and Leather Sleeve with MagSafe will be available at a later date.

What is the origin of that 12 Pro unboxing video, and why is it considered legit? If Prosser is in fact correct about devices being out for review/preview, then this is breaking embargo—which seems sketchy.

Kinda expect more from MacRumors than just passive acceptance. Any provenance, or analysis of why this is trusted?

Ok, ok, ok. I was regretting not grabbing pacific blue. I still am, however, this softens it a lot. That looks very nice.

Just got my magsafe charger and it does kinda stick to the back of my iPhone XS. Not strongly by any means, and certainly doesn't align itself. But I could pick up the phone and the charger came along.

MagSafe sounds annoying when trying to grab the phone off the charger. Wont it just lift the base up too? Is there Velcro or something? Seems like it’s solving a non existent problem.

My wife's phone not being charged every night because she doesn't get it aligned on the charger when she sleepily puts it on the nightstand disagrees. I imagine at worst you just push the charger to the side with a finger to "disconnect" it from the phone.

Here is what the MagSafe charger looks in comparison to my existing charging pad (Mophie 7.5w).

I'm wondering this exactly as well. Sounds like a two-handed operation. Pick the phone up with one hand and pull the charger off with the other. Doesn't sound very elegant. Or shake the charger off :rolleyes:
