Earlier today, a report highlighted that an iPhone 13 Pro with a case doesn't lay fully flat on the MagSafe Duo charger, igniting concerns about possible compatibility issues. Even if the iPhone 13 Pro doesn’t lay fully flat on the charger, it will, however, still charge normally.


For better context, a video posted by MKBHD shows that an iPhone 13 Pro with a case is slightly elevated off of the MagSafe Duo Charger due to its more prominent camera bump. Despite the elevation, the iPhone 13 Pro will still charge as normal thanks to MagSafe, and the slight fit issue has no impact on charging performance or speed.

Apple lists the MagSafe Duo charger as compatible with all models of the iPhone 13 lineup, and customers that are worried that the iPhone 13 Pro won't be compatible with the charger should rest assured that it will be.

Fear not! The MagSafe Duo Pro+ is surely around the corner.
For sure - 10% smaller and this one will use Apple's new 39w USB-C charger to allow faster Apple Watch charging*

*Wall charger not included.

It really seems like there is a communications breakdown within Apple, like every single product is completely siloed. I feel like it was just dumb luck now that the battery case and wallet work with the 13 Pro (They are extremely close, just a mm away from the camera bump.)

Why the heck do cases have lips around the camera now? One of the nice things about using a case was that it made the back of the phone flat.

Arrgh even my favorite case the Otterbox Symmetry has a camera lip! Seriously WTF are they thinking? This just killed half the reason to have a case.

Can’t you just put it the other way? Like facing the camera to you? I don’t have the MagSafe so I’m asking cause IDK

This is something I never even considered of when I ordered my iPhone 13 Pro and MagSafe leather case. Thank goodness my MagSafe Duo Charger will still (technically) work but this is just ridiculous. :(
