Are iPhone 12 MagSafe accessories compatible with iPhone 13 models?

In 2020, Apple launched iPhone 12 series with new magnetic MagSafe accessories including wireless chargers, protective cases, and wallets. The new iPhone 13 models are slightly thicker than iPhone 12 models and have a larger camera module. Now, the question arises are those MagSafe accessories compatible with iPhone 13 series?

MagSafe accessories and iPhone 13 series compatibility test

The height and width of the iPhone 13 series are the same as the iPhone 12 series. But the iPhone 13 models’ camera modules are larger and the depth (thickness) of the iPhone 13 models is 0.01 inches more than iPhone 12 models. These slight differences impact the fit of some MagSafe accessories.

It is also important to note that all iPhone 13 models except for iPhone 13 mini charge at 15W, while iPhone 13 mini is limited to 12W. This was also the case with last year’s iPhone 12 mini model, and is probably due to its small size which has thermal constraints.
