Apple starts selling new USB-C charger for Apple Watch

As we reported yesterday on our Instagram, Apple Store it was off the air for a few hours so that Ma could prepare the ground for the pre-sale of the iPhone XR.

When the company's online store went live, however, the novelty was not just the iPhone XR.

Magnetic charger and USB-C cable

Sneakily, Apple added to its catalog a new magnetic charger with connection USB-C for the Apple Watch. It is identical to the one that Ma already sold, except that you can connect it to a USB-C port instead of a USB-A (MacBook and MacBook Pro owners, celebrities).

it is common for USB-C cables to carry more energy than USB-A, which means faster charging; in this case, however, the charging of the Apple Watch will not be changed, as the magnetic charger that fits the watch is the same as those that have the USB-A output.

The new charger costs R $ 250 and comes with a 0.3 meter cable for now, it is not available in other sizes. Apple has been offering USB-C options for Lightning cables for some time, but so far none for the Apple Watch. Naturally, the new charger is compatible with the original Apple Watch, Series 1, Series 2, Series 3 and Series 4.

The accessory is already listed in the Apple online store, but she reports that the product is unavailable. In the USA, the charger can be purchased at Apple Stores starting next week.
