As Apple continued to adopt USB Type-C Apple Insider released a charging cable for Apple Watch that uses the new connection standard. With the new charger, you can connect Apple's wearables to your new MacBook or another laptop that switches to a slimmer port for charging.
The new charger is $ 29/35 Euro / 29 pounds with a cable length of 0.3 meters. There is no mention that a longer 1m or 2m variant is available, as can be achieved with a USB Type-A charger. Charging time and power supply will not be affected if the charger is not changed.
Apple will be out in a week before launching the new iPad Pro on October 30th. There is rumor that it's the first Apple tablet to have a USB-C port instead of a lightning bolt. It would not be surprising if it means that you can soon charge Apple Watch on your new device … What about Apple Pencil?
