The rumor: The return of MagSafe on the upcoming MacBook Pros will enable more than just a trip-free experience, according to Mark Gurman (87.3% accurate, via Power On).
- “MagSafe charging will make its return to the side of the new MacBook Pro, following the addition of MagSafe to the iPhone 12 last year. That means the charger connects magnetically so it quickly yanks out if someone trips on the cord. Charging speeds will also be faster” Gurman says
- Other ports, like HDMI and an SD card reader will be making their re-debut at Apple’s ‘Unleashed’ event on Monday
Our take: I’ve never truly had a problem with the charge speed on my MacBook Pro, but it does seem to fill up significantly slower than any of my other Apple devices (likely because it has the largest battery). I’d love to see a faster charging option like we have on iPhone and Apple Watch.
