Apple has revived the MagSafe brand with the release of the new 2020 iPhone models! All iPhone 12 & 12 Pro terminals are compatible with the Apple Watch-like magnetic charging system. More, Apple has also introduced the MagSafe compatible cases, chargers and wallets that snap right on to the back of the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro or 12 Pro Max.
iOS 14 is able to recognize Apple’s MagSafe accessories and confirms that the product has been correctly attached to the back of the iPhone by playing an animation. For example, if you’re using an Apple Silicon case, the animation displays the MagSafe ring centered on the iPhone 12 display, with a background color that matches the one of the connected case!

iPhone 12 MagSafe Animation Not Working?
Is the animation demoed in this article not showing up on your iPhone 12 when you attach a case? Here are some of the most common reasons:
- 1. The animation only works with MagSafe compatible Apple manufactured cases, chargers and wallets.
- 2. The iPhone 12 case animation is displayed only on Lock Screen. If the device is unlocked, the animation won’t play!
- 3. The MagSafe charger isn’t properly connected to the iPhone 12 because you might be using a non-MagSafe compatible case with your iPhone.
