Apple has introduced a new color option for its USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable that matches the Space Black finish of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. The cable is available for $49 on Apple’s online store and comes in the box with the new MacBook Pro models when configured with M3 Pro or M3 Max chips.
MagSafe 3 is Apple’s latest magnetic charging technology that allows the cable to attach and detach easily from the MacBook. The cable also supports fast charging up to 140W for the new MacBook Pro models, which can reach up to 50% charge in around 30 minutes. MagSafe 3 also works with other USB-C devices, such as the iPad Pro and iPad Air, but at lower wattages.
Why Space Black?
Space Black is a new color option that Apple debuted with the new MacBook Pro models. The color is darker than the previous Space Gray and has a matte finish that resists fingerprints and scratches. The color also complements the black keyboard, bezels, and ports of the new MacBook Pro models. Apple claims that Space Black is achieved through a “sophisticated physical vapor deposition process” that creates a durable and elegant surface.
What are the other color options?
Besides Space Black, Apple also offers the USB-C to MagSafe 3 cable in four other colors: Space Gray, Silver, Starlight, and Midnight. These colors match the existing color options for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and other Apple devices. The cable is two meters long and features a woven design for added durability.
How to buy the Space Black MagSafe 3 cable?
The Space Black MagSafe 3 cable is available for $49 on Apple’s online store. Customers can also buy it from Apple retail stores or authorized resellers. The cable is included in the box with the new MacBook Pro models when configured with M3 Pro or M3 Max chips, which start at $1,999 and $2,499 respectively. The new MacBook Pro models are expected to ship in late October or early November.
