Apple Lists MagSafe Cable in Four Colors for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro for $49

Apple today announced that color-matching USB-C to MagSafe 3 charging cables for the new MacBook Air will be available to purchase separately. The cables are listed as "coming soon" on Apple's online store, with pricing set at $49 each in the United States.

The cable will be available in the same color options as the new MacBook Air, including Space Gray, Silver, Midnight, and Starlight. The cable is also compatible with the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models released last year.

The cable, which also comes in the box with the new MacBook Air, is two meters long and features a woven design for added durability.

Apple's full product description:

This 2-meter charge cable features a magnetic MagSafe 3 connector that helps guide the plug to the charging port of your Mac notebook. Pair it with a compatible USB-C power adapter to conveniently charge your notebook from a wall outlet and take advantage of fast-charging capabilities. The magnetic connection is strong enough to resist most unintended disconnects, but if someone trips on the cable, it releases so your Mac notebook stays put. An LED turns amber when the battery is charging and green when it's fully charged. Made with a woven design for long-lasting durability.

Apple has not provided a specific release date for the cables.

It's really funny that they actually listened to the complaints about this related to the M1 MBP. Well there you go, a mere $49. Wonder if they'll start shipping a matching cable with the darker MBP.

Looks like they didn't want to do the charging bricks in the same system colors, so instead they made that 'awkward color change' on the cable itself, but I'm sure cost/prominence was a factor. These connectors have a white USB-C connector to match the white charging brick. with the rest of it matching the system's color, including the cable.
