The users are instructed to first plug in the MagSafe charger in the power socket before placing the iPhone on the charging puck because the charger verifies conditions to safely deliver maximum power. If the iPhone is placed on the charger before it is plugged in, then users should remove their smartphone and wait for 3 seconds. For it is also advised to check for clear metals and foreign objects on the surface of the charger before placing the iPhone on it.

Tech reviewer, George Buhnici uploaded a first look video of the smallest iPhone 12 model, but later took it off. Presumably, he uploaded the video accidentally before the launch and then removed it. Starting at $699 the iPhone 12 mini will be available for preorder on at 5 a.m. on November 6.
