Apple updates World Travel Adapter Kit with slashed price, new socket


Apple has released an update to its World Travel Adapter Kit on Monday, now available on the online Apple Store with seven AC plug types and a reduced price of $29.

With the new version of the kit, Apple has expanded support to travelers visiting Brazil, a country with Type N electrical outlets. Support for North America, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Korea, Australia and Hong Kong are also found for globetrotters.

In the new version, Apple has rid of the USB power adapter and 30-pin cable that once shipped for $39. Apple isn’t including a Lightning cable in the new version, hence the slashed price.

“The kit is designed to work with iPod, iPhone, and iPad, and is compatible with Apple MagSafe and MagSafe 2 Power Adapters (for MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air), 10W and 12W USB Power Adapters, and Portable Power Adapters,” Apple writes on its online store.
