Apple isn’t adding its fast charger to all 14-inch MacBook Pro models it launched earlier this week, but is selling it as an additional accessory. It unveiled 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models at a virtual event, and new details about the bundled charger have been unveiled on the Apple website. The Cupertino giant has two types of power adapters for the 14-inch MacBook Pro. Some models have a 67W USB‑C power adapter, while higher-end models bundle a 96W adapter. On the other hand, the 16-inch MacBook Pro models all come with a 140W USB-C power adapter in the box.

Apple has written on its website that the 14-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Pro is bundled with an 8-core CPU, 14-core GPU and 16-core Neural Engine along with a 67W USB-C adapter for charging. This model is not bundled with a 96W adapter and users can pay an additional $20 in the US, or Rs. 1,600 in India. Apple claims that the 96W adapter will charge the battery from 0 to 50 percent in about 30 minutes.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro model, on the other hand, has a 10-core CPU with an M1 Pro chip, or any M1 Max chip, which comes with a 96W USB-C adapter.

16-inch MacBook Pro models in all configurations come with a 140W bundled fast charging adapter inside the box. Apple confirmed to The Verge that the 140W charging brick uses the USB-C Power Delivery 3.1 standard. This means the new adapter will be cross-compatible with other devices that use the same power delivery.

The 140W USB-C adapter is also sold separately and costs between $99 and Rs. 9,500 in India. Apple claims that this cable can also charge from 0 to 50 percent in about 30 minutes.

Apple MacBook Pro (2021) price starts at Rs. 1,94,900 in India and $1,999 in the US. These models are based on the company’s new silicon called the all-new M1 Pro and M1 Max. It omits the Touch Bar and brings back an SDXC card slot as well as an HDMI port.
