We've already seen tons of leaks regarding Apple's upcoming iPhone 13, with all manner of new tech rumoured to be hitting the device. But if a new leaked patent filing is anything to go by, the next generation of iPhones could also see the surprising return of an older feature, last seen on the MacBook over half a decade ago.

According to the new patent, Apple is working on a brand new charging standard for the iPhone involving MagSafe. Yep, it seems the magnetic tech introduced with last year's iPhone 12 could soon replace the standard Lightning port. (In the market for a new smartphone?
