I Get USB C and being able to Charge through any of the ports.
Since 2007 and multiple Mac The MagSafe has Saved my bacon about 4 times.
But I really miss the LED Charge Indicator
Do you miss it, any chance Apple would bring it back ?

I sort of do, but I actually prefer the USB-C because I have to really tug at the cord for it to come out whereas the MagSafe was easier to trip, IME.

I prefer usb-c but do miss an indicator light. Like, a lot more than I though I would. How about letting my phone display the current charge state or something? Like how the Apple Pencil does on my iPad or the watch does on my phone. If there was a widget, or complication or whatever it's called on the watch, I could touch to quickly tell me the current state of all my devices, that'd be awesome.

Surprisingly I don’t miss the LED in the charger. These new laptops charge so fast that having then plugged in for 40 minutes or so can get you to 80% battery charge (may be an exaggeration, but you get my point). I don’t think Apple will ever bring the LED indicator back, Apple is not known for bringing things back omved they’ve removed them.
