MagSafe and MagSafe Duo chargers are capable of receiving firmware updates, much like AirPods and other devices. Apple delivers charging optimizations and bug fixes to MagSafe chargers automatically as they are rolled out.

Offloading removes everything except your personal data associated with the app. In theory, reinstalling an app restores its function with your information intact.
