MacBook Air: New Dual USB-C Charger and Color Coordinated Cable

Along with Apple’s new MacBook Air, the accessories that come with the notebook have also been introduced. In addition to a new charger with two connections, there are color-coordinated MagSafe cables for the first time. Both can also be purchased separately.

There was speculation about the new charger months ago when Apple accidentally put a support document online too early. The expected start of sales was a long time coming. With the MacBook Air in the basic configuration, it’s available for an additional fee of 20 euros – a 30-watt adapter is usually included here. The new charging connector is included in more expensive models with 10 GPU cores and can optionally be exchanged for a 67-watt adapter for faster charging at no extra charge. The charging plug can be purchased individually for 65 euros. This is Apple’s first charging adapter with two ports.

Apple will provide MagSafe charging cables to buyers of the new MacBook Air that match the color of the computer. These are available in different colors like Polar Star, Midnight, Silver and Space Grey for 55 euros each. MacBook Pro buyers will continue to receive the standard 2 meter cable in white. But you can also buy a much cheaper cable later in a different color. MagSafe 3 was introduced by Apple in October 2021 after the magnetic power connector was replaced by USB-C on previous devices. Apparently, Apple was responding to a frequently heard user request, as the magnetic connection could prevent the notebook from falling to the ground if you stumble upon the charging cable.

Incidentally, according to 9to5Mac, the new MacBook is 11.3mm thick, a touch thinner than the first iPhone (11.6mm) and even a millimeter thinner than the two following devices, the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS Is.

Apple continues to rely on Thunderbolt 3 for the MacBook Air, although the previous new releases — MacBook Pros and Mac Studio in 14 and 16 inches — are already equipped with Thunderbolt 4. Unlike its predecessor, Thunderbolt 4 supports the standard DisplayPort 1.4 instead of 32 and 1.2 instead of 16 Gbit/s.
