Apple Selling New $49 Braided MagSafe Cable and $99 140W Power Adapter for 16-Inch MacBook Pro

To go along with the updated MacBook Pro models that are launching next week, Apple is stocking accessories for the machines.

macbook pro 16 accessories
There's a 140W USB-C power adapter, which is Apple's most expensive power adapter to date at $99. There's also a $49 braided USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable for charging the MacBook Pro.

Combined, it's going to cost right around $150 to get a new charging setup for the 16-inch MacBook Pro machines should you need a secondary power adapter and cable, though charging is still possible using a USB-C port and cable instead of MagSafe. You do get an initial set with the purchase of a new MacBook Pro, however.

The new ‌MagSafe‌ cable and 140W power adapter are required to take advantage of fast charging, which allows a MacBook Pro to charge from zero to 50 percent in 30 minutes.

‌MagSafe‌ also has the benefit of a quick release feature should someone pull on the cable or trip over it accidentally. Both new accessories can be purchased from the online Apple Store as of today and will arrive next week.

I'll wait for Anker to come out with a sleeker GaN power supply, one that's half the size of Apple's neatly cut boulder.

$50 for just a damn cable. Only at Apple.

Also, I wish they just put in the 4th thunderbolt port instead of hdmi. It was more versatile anyway.

Yes! The return of a proprietary connector that easily wears out and breaks and falls out when you use it on your knee. FINALLY!
Hmm, the MagSafe on my Late 2013 MBP still works great, no issues at all ?‍♂️

Edit: Yes i'm fully aware you can still charge with USB-C, I was being facetious. It's good the cable is still USB-C at the end and now braided. At least you can just replace the cable and use it with USB-C so it retains some flexibility and easy to repair/replace unlike the original.
