MagSafe was a series of proprietary magnetically attached power connectors for Mac laptops introduced by Apple Inc. It was introduced on January 10, 2006, in conjunction with the MacBook Pro, the first Intel-based Mac laptop, at the Macworld Expo. The connector is held in place magnetically so that if it is tugged — for example, by someone tripping over the cord — it will pull out of the socket without damaging the connector or the computer power socket, and without pulling the computer off of its surface. A thinner and wider version, called MagSafe 2, was introduced in 2012. Despite its popularity with many users, it was discontinued across Apple’s product lines between 2016 and 2019 and replaced with USB-C.
