After a recent update, Apple products like MagSafe wireless charger and Airpods are no longer charging when connected to a Windows laptop’s USB C Port. However, this can be resolved by disabling a HID device in device manager and charging will start working again.

Disable HID device in Device manager 

  1. Open Devices and Printers in control panel

  2. Right click Apple MagSafe Charger and open properties

  3. Go to Hardware tab

  4. Select HID-compatible-vendor-defined device (1st one worked for me)

  5. Click properties

  6. Click Change settings (if applicable)

  7. Go to driver tab and disable the device.

  8. Unplug and re-plug the MagSafe

MagSafe charger and AirPods should start charging again now.

  1. This works, as you said. My system showed AirPod Case instead of MagSafe. Thanks for sharing; I knew they were doing this on purpose. I love hacking their hack. LOL
