Updated Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock arrives (though it’s unclear what’s changed)

Apple is selling an updated version of its Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, although it’s not clear what’s different about it other than a new model number (MU9F2AM/A instead of MLDW2AM/A).

With the $79.99 dock, you can charge your Apple smartwatch in a flat position with its band open, or on its side. When charging, your watch automatically goes into Nightstand mode, so you can also use it as your alarm clock. 

The Magnetic Charging Dock uses the same inductive charging connector that comes with the Apple Watch. It charges all Apple Watch models and sizes. And it connects via the Lightning to USB Cable and Apple 5W USB Power Adapter.

You can place an order for the dock now and it should arrive this Friday, Nov. 16. It should also be in Apple’s retail stores soon.

Does this revamp (if such it is) of the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock portend a further delay of the AirPower, Apple’s endlessly-delayed wireless charging pad? Stay tuned.
