Apple’s MagSafe 2 Power Port [WWDC 2012 Coverage]By: Shawn Hess - June 11, 2012
Another incredible development from the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2012) which kicked off today. This one comes straight off the redesign of the MacBook Pro. To match the MacBook’s new slimmer body (0.7″ total thickness) comes a more compact version of the MagSafe power adaptor port. It’s fittingly called the MagSafe 2 (very clever).
Other interface points featured alongside the MagSafe on the left side of the machine include a headphone jack, Thunderbolt, and a USB 3.0 port. On the right you’ll find a place for an SD card, an HDMI port, and another USB 3.0 port.
There’s more developments coming out of the conference as I write this. Several details about what we can expect from the new MacBook’s on top of the MagSafe 2 were leaked just before the start of today’s events. Follow this link to learn more.
