Apple Discontinues MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo Charger

Apple today discontinued the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo Charger immediately following its iPhone 15 event. Both accessories are no longer available to order on Apple's online store, with the product listings completely removed.

Both the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Duo Charger were equipped with a Lightning port, so it is not too surprising that they were discontinued after Apple introduced four new iPhone 15 models with USB-C ports. Last year, supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted that the MagSafe Battery Pack would transition to USB-C eventually, but it's unclear if that will ever happen or if the accessory has been retired for good.

Released in 2021, the ?MagSafe Battery Pack? was priced at $99 and attaches magnetically to the back of the iPhone 12 and newer, providing hours of additional battery life. Meanwhile, the MagSafe Duo was a $129 foldable charging mat with both a MagSafe charger for iPhones and an Apple Watch magnetic charging puck.

Apple did release some other new USB-C accessories, including updated AirPods Pro and EarPods, while the Apple TV's Siri Remote gained a USB-C port last year.

Wow! This is a tragedy.

I love my MagSafe Battery Pack. It has saved me so many times while traveling. Really wish Apple had updated those to USB-C.

Typical lazy Apple.
How hard is it to produce new and improved accessories? The Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse haven't been updated in years. No backlight....instead they focus on a VR headset that nobody asked for.

I'm pretty sure those two accessories will be back in a few months, probably with a new design and certainly with a USB-C port

I hope they have a usb-c MagSafe Duo Charger in the works. It’s got to be one of the best Apple accessories I’ve ever purchased.

I do admire Apple’s cold bloodedness sometimes.

Everyone: “Guess they have to update the MagSafe battery pack.”

Apple: “There is another option.”
