Anker on Monday unveiled a new lineup of products and accessories for Apple devices, including some that can attach to MagSafe-equipped iPhone models.

Some of the new accessories include power banks that will be able to magnetically attach to the back of an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro model. Although these power banks leverage the MagSafe magnetic attachment points, they won't provide MagSafe speeds. They will be available in capacities up to 10,000 mAh and will debut in February 2021 from $37.99 to $51.99.

Similarly, Anker is debuting new magnetic wireless chargers and stands. Like the battery packs, these won't incorporate faster MagSafe charging speeds — they'll be capped at 7.5W like Qi wireless charging. But there will be a range of stands, including ones that will start at $20.99. They'll debut in March 2021.

The PowerWave Go 3-in-1 also sports a detachable 10,000mAh wireless pad. It'll launch in March with a price between $159.99 to $199.99, depending on

There will also be new magnetic cases for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 lineup in various designs, as well as new Lightning to USB-C cables in new pastel color options.
