MagSafe 3 Charging Cable Now Available in New Colors Matching MacBook Air

Apple today made its USB-C to MagSafe 3 charging cable available to purchase separately in three new colors matching the MacBook Air, including space gray, midnight, and starlight, with pricing set at $49. Until now, the cable was only sold in silver.

MagSafe 3 Cable Midnight Feature fr
Apple already includes a color-matched MagSafe 3 charging cable in the box with the new MacBook Air, but now the cable can be ordered individually from Apple's online store for those who want an extra one or need a replacement.

The cable is also compatible with the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models released last year. This means that customers who purchased a new MacBook Pro in space gray will finally be able to get a matching space gray MagSafe 3 cable, as Apple somewhat surprisingly chose to bundle a silver cable with the space gray model.


MagSafe technology allows the cable to magnetically attach to a MacBook. If someone trips on the cable, it releases so that the MacBook does not go tumbling. The cable is two meters long and features a woven design for added durability.

The new MacBook Air is now available to order ahead of a July 15 launch. The notebook is powered by Apple's new M2 chip and has been redesigned with a slightly larger 13.6-inch display, a notch, and flatter edges. Pricing starts at $1,199, and the previous-generation MacBook Air with the M1 chip remains available for $999.

I could buy TWO Apple Polishing Cloths for the price of this cable and have money left over.

£49 for a 6ft length of cable with a plug on each end.
I feel like I've just stumbled onto a hifi forum.

Never understood why Apple got rid of MagSafe in the first place.
It's the only feature I miss of my M1 MBP 2020.

I thought usb c was perfect, I know I’m in the minority on this but I prefer the usb c port over the MagSafe I can charge my iPad with it, my switch controller or any usb c device, MagSafe is just for the MacBook
