Apple today announced that color-matched USB-C charging cables with MagSafe 3 for the new MacBook Air will be available for purchase separately. The cables are listed as “Coming Soon” on the Apple Online Store, priced at $49 each in the US.


The cable will be available in the same color options as the new MacBook Air, including Space Gray, Silver, Midnight and Starlight. The cable is also compatible with the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models released last year.

The cable, which also comes in the box with the new MacBook Air, is 2 meters long and features a woven design for added durability.

Full Apple Product Description:

This 2-meter charging cable features a MagSafe 3 magnetic connector that helps route the plug to the charging port of your Mac notebook. Pair it with a compatible USB-C power adapter to easily charge your notebook from a wall outlet and take advantage of its fast charging capabilities. The magnetic connection is strong enough to withstand most unintended disconnects, but if someone tampers with the cable, it releases so your Mac notebook stays in place. The LED indicator turns orange when the battery is charging and turns green when it is fully charged. Made with a woven design for long-lasting durability.

Apple has not provided an exact release date for the cables.
