How to Update the Firmware for a MagSafe Battery Pack

Want to make sure your MagSafe Battery Pack is working the best it can? You should check for updated firmware.

MagSafe Battery Pack is Apple’s solution for charging your iPhone on the go. The battery pack attaches wirelessly to the back of your iPhone using MagSafe and charges your phone.

Apple occasionally releases firmware updates to the MagSafe Battery Pack to improve iPhone charging speed or other features. This article explains how to update the MagSafe Battery Pack firmware, so you can take advantage of any improvements.

MagSafe battery pack update

Apple released a firmware update for the MagSafe Battery Pack on April 20, 2022, allowing for 7.5W charging on the go, greater than the previous 5W limit. This allows the iPhone to charge with MagSafe a little faster than before.

While this still isn’t as fast as the 15W charging speeds that other wired MagSafe accessories offer — one of the reasons to avoid MagSafe Battery Packs — it’s still better than the original, so we recommend updating the MagSafe Battery Pack if you have never done so before.

Check your MagSafe firmware version

If you are using MagSafe Battery Pack regularly, chances are that your iPhone has automatically updated its firmware version.

To check the firmware version your MagSafe Battery Pack is running, attach the MagSafe Battery Pack to your iPhone. On your iPhone, navigate to Settings > General > About and choose MagSafe battery pack.


You will see the firmware version here. Innovative 7.5W charging already included version 2.7.b.0, so if you have one or newer, your MagSafe Battery Pack may have been updated to the latest firmware. If that’s not the case, here’s how to update the MagSafe Battery Pack firmware version.

How to update MagSafe battery pack firmware

There are two ways to update the firmware on your MagSafe Battery Pack:

  • The easiest option is to simply attach the MagSafe Battery Pack to the back of your iPhone and it will update automatically. However, sometimes there can be a delay in this, that’s why if the firmware version doesn’t update automatically, you can try the second method.
  • A second method to update the firmware is to connect the MagSafe Battery Pack to your Mac or iPhone using a Lightning to USB-C cable. Once you’re connected, the firmware update should only take a few minutes (provided your Mac or iPad is connected to Wi-Fi). This usually works faster than the first method, which is why it’s worth a shot.

Charge your iPhone on the go

The MagSafe Battery Pack is a great way to keep your iPhone charged on the go — especially when you’re on long road trips and you can’t find an outlet to charge your phone. With improved charging speed, your iPhone will charge faster, allowing you to save time.
