But it also comes with two very interesting accessories. First, there’s something called MicroAdapter, a little plug-in for the iPhone’s lightning port that turns it into a magnetic socket. That pairs very well with MagAdapter, which plugs into the end of a Lightning cable. Plug a MagAdapter-equipped Lightning cable into an iPhone with a MicroAdapter, and you’ve got yourself a bootleg MagSafe-style setup.
