If you’ve recently purchased the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro computers that was announced just last month and were planning to match it with Apple’s Thunderbolt Display, you might be interested to learn that Apple has made a small update to the device’s SKU and is reportedly shipping it now with a new Magsafe-to-Magsafe 2 adapter that will be compatible with Apple’s new computers. This was reported by the folks at 9to5 Mac who were quoted as saying:
“We’ve gotten word that Apple has slightly tweaked its Thunderbolt Display SKU, and these units have begun shipping to Apple Stores and Apple Official Resellers worldwide. The change was first noticed by our sources when Apple retired the Thunderbolt Display‘s MC914LL/A part code and replaced it with MC914LL/B just a couple of days ago.”
Alternatively if you ordered a new Thunderbolt Display and it has yet to arrive at your home, and you discover it does not come with the adapter, you will able to purchase it via Apple’s website or at an Apple retail store for only $10. Not really a big deal but we’re sure it’s a convenience that new MacBook owners will probably be able to appreciate.
