One of the changes that Apple has made in recent years in the Mac range, and that it did not sit well in the community, was the elimination of MagSafe technology to charge MacBooks. This technology attached the charger to the MacBook using magnets, so that in the event of an accidental pull, it would automatically release if the MacBook was carried behind as if it happened and continues to happen in today’s laptops, including all MacBooks.
Last April, we published an article in which we talked about the possibility of Apple returning to introduce MagSafe technology in MacBooks, a rumor that at the moment I have not heard from again, but that the latest movements on the Apple website could confirm.
MagSafe’s support page has just been updated 5 years after the last time it was updated, an update that follows rumors about the launch of a MacBook Pro with mini-LED technology. The MagSafe Support Website it had not been updated since November 16, 2016.
In this update, Apple has removed a reference to old barrel connector (rounded), updated the troubleshooting instructions and removed the image of the older connector (the one with the barrel shape). No new information or details have been added that could give some clue about the return of this technology to MacBook, but if we take into account the rumors in this regard, the rumor begins to take shape.
Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo state that Apple intends to re-adopt MagSafe technology in Macs along with other features in the Pro version, such as an SD card slot, an HDMI port and the disappearance of the Touch Bar, the touch bar that has never arrived. to be liked by users.
If these pampering rumors are true, we probably won’t have to wait long, as it would be the month of September the one chosen by Apple to launch this new range of MacBook, MacBook that would also serve to introduce into the market the second generation of Apple’s Apple Silicon.
