This Upcoming USB-C MagSafe-style Adapter Promised 87W Of Power

Apple may have filed the patent for an adapter that will bring MagSafe back to MacBook and possibly, other devices, but when exactly will it realize is anybody guess and so, for now, if you want MacSafe back, your only solution will be third party solutions like the Griffin BreakSafe and Snapnator, and now there is another to look to: Vinpok Bolt S. As far as uniqueness goes, Vinpok Bolt S has none. It is basically what both BreakSafe and Snapnator have to offer, but it does stand out for the sole fact that it can probably deal with large capacity-equipped 15-inch MacBook Pro.

Patent Hints Apple Bringing MagSafe To USB-C Connector, Or Is It Really?

Apple lost more than a benevolent and visionary leader when Jobs passed on. From Jobs passing up to today, the Cupertino-based tech giant has lost an headphone jack, an SD card slot, a glowing logo and most unfortunately, the iconic MagSafe too. To Apple’s credit, It did gain something though: a pair of wireless earbuds that is nothing short of an oddity. Sorry. Pardon me for less than kind words. I simply can’t stand the sight of two sticks dangling from someone’s ears that aren’t ear rings. Anyways, for those who is still mourning over the death of the legendary MagSafe, a patent filed by Apple may bring some hope for the MagSafe return. Well, kind of.
