Apple Discontinues Sales of MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo Due to Lightning Port Usage

Apple has halted the sale of its MagSafe Battery Pack, a supplementary battery that attaches to the back of the iPhone, and the MagSafe Duo, a dual charging dock for both the iPhone and Apple Watch. This decision comes after Apple introduced the iPhone 15, which utilizes a USB-C port.

The reason for discontinuing these products is not hard to fathom, as both devices utilize the Lightning port. However, it is interesting to note that Apple chose to completely stop selling these two products rather than releasing an upgraded version with a USB-C port. Nevertheless, it is still possible to find and purchase these products through other authorized resellers who may still have them in stock.

The shift to the use of the USB-C port in the iPhone 15 has led to the release of new accessories that support USB-C right away. One such accessory is the second-generation AirPods Pro, which now come with a USB-C connector, as well as the wired EarPods. However, the regular AirPods models, including version 2 and 3, as well as the AirPods Max, still utilize the Lightning port. Additionally, other Apple products such as the Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard also currently rely on the Lightning connector, but it is likely that this will change in the future.

TLDR: Apple has stopped selling the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo due to their reliance on the Lightning port, while the new iPhone 15 utilizes the USB-C port. However, these products may still be available through other authorized resellers. The shift to USB-C has resulted in the release of accessories such as the second-generation AirPods Pro that come with USB-C support. Other Apple products, including the regular AirPods, AirPods Max, Magic Mouse, and Magic Keyboard, still use the Lightning connector but may see changes in the future.
