Apple Releases New Version of 30W USB-C Power Adapter, But Changes Unclear

Apple today quietly released a new version of its 30W USB-C power adapter with the model number MY1W2AM/A. The outward design of the adapter has not changed, so if any tweaks have been made, they are likely internal. The previous model MR2A2LL/A is no longer available for purchase from Apple.

The power adapter remains compatible with any USB‑C–enabled device, with Apple continuing to recommend that it be paired with the 13-inch MacBook Air with a Retina display. The adapter can also be used to fast charge compatible iPhone and iPad Pro models. The new version remains priced at $49 on Apple's online store and ships within a few days.

Apple made a similar move in June 2018, when it quietly replaced its 29W power adapter with the original 30W version that was sold until this week.

Does anybody actually buy these at this price? I just bought an Anker USB -C car charger no less with two ports a 30W and 18W for a lil more than half that price. AMAZING!

Yet the Ravpower is 90 watts, has two ports, and includes a USB C cable. All missing from the Apple product, and is $3 less with the current coupon offer!

Most likely it’s smaller than the previous version. I’m good with Anker for quite some time

I love the Anker PowerPort Atom PD1 around the house or while traveling. It's freakin awesome. It's the size of the small iPhone charger, but puts out 30W USB-C PD.

The obvious thing for Apple to do would be to hop on the GaN train and shrink the size right down (right now everyone selling GaN units compares the size to the Apple block). With the rumors that the iPhone 12 won't include a charging block they might have included a second USB port too so one plug would charge both a Mac and a phone/tablet.
