However, when I click on the link, the message 'Sorry, the product you are looking for is not currently available on apple.com' is displayed, and I am not able to purchase the 'MagSafe Battery Pack' or 'MagSafe Dual Charging Pad.' I couldn't do it anymore.
9to5Mac explains why sales of the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Dual Charging Pad have been discontinued: ``The reason these accessories were discontinued is very clear. These are iPhone accessories with a Lightning port for power supply.'' 'Rather than replace it with a USB Type-C version, Apple has chosen to stop selling it entirely.'

9to5Mac notes that it is unclear whether Apple plans to release USB Type-C versions of the MagSafe Battery Pack and MagSafe Dual Charging Pad in the future, or whether they will discontinue the products themselves.
In addition, as of 2021, 9to5Mac reports that ``Apple is neglecting MagSafe accessories,'' and the ``MagSafe Dual Charging Pad'' is designed to prevent the protrusion of the main camera from moving when the iPhone 13 Pro with the genuine case is placed. It was pointed out that it interferes with the charging pad and prevents it from sticking properly.
