Apple May Bring MagSafe And SD Card Slots Back To MacBook

Apple may bring MagSafe and SD card slots back to MacBook

Apple engineers are apparently feeling bit of nostalgia up in Cupertino. After reports the company is apparently planning on killing the Touch Bar, a report from Bloomberg suggests the company is planning to bring back the MagSafe charger and SD card slots.

For all those who are not acquainted with MagSafe, it had been the organization’s method of preventing your notebook (or you) from shattering if you inevitably triggered over the charger. The business started to abandon MagSafe       after introducing USB-C together with all the 2015 MacBook. As good as USB-C is, it will not do much to keep you from tripping.

An approaching MacBook Air, to be published in late 2021 or sometime in 2022, will apparently feature MagSafe once again. It is going to also feature a set of USB-4 vents (still using the USB-C contour ), and also be lighter and smaller than the existing MacBook Air. This will be accomplished in part by decreasing the bezels.

It’s not clear what form the new MagSafe charger will take — whether Apple will revive the old connector or come up with a new one.


In any event, it strikes me as an odd movement. The business recently whined about no more including chargers using its smart phones, citing environmental reasons, so it seems odd they had reintroduce a charger when USB-C is such a trustworthy connector for devices which fit inside its power capacities.

However, based on Bloomberg, the yield of MagSafe is an effort to appeal to Mac loyalists. To this end, it is reported to be bringing back the SD card slot on the MacBook Pro — a feature that we have not seen as 2016. That will surely interest the can photographers on MacOS; it is 2020, but SD cards do not appear to be going anywhere any time soon.

Apple reportedly also considered mobile connectivity and Face ID on forthcoming Macs, but neither attribute is very likely to arrive this season. There was likewise a 15-inch MacBook Air from the works, however, the job is seemingly scrapped for today.
