Continuing its move towards embracing USB Type-C, Apple has released a charging cable for the Apple Watch that uses the new connectivity standard, via Apple Insider . Med den nye laderen kan du lade Apple bærbar ved å plugge den inn i en moderne MacBook, eller en annen bærbar datamaskin som har gjort det til den mer slimline port.
The new charger costs $ 29 / € 35 / £ 29 with a cable that’s 0.3-m long. There is no mention of a longer 1-m or 2-m variant available as you can get with the USB Type-A charger. Charging time and power delivery are unlikely to be affected given that the induction charger appears unchanged.
The release comes just over a week before Apple is expected to release a new iPad Pro on October 30th, which is rumored to be the first Apple tablet to come equipped with a USB-C port rather than Lightning. We would not be surprised if this means you’ll soon be able to charge your Apple Watch directly from the new device … but what about the Apple Pencil?
