You might have seen a lot of hype surrounding Apple wall plugs and electric shocks. Sounds pretty scary, huh?
The technology giants over at Apple have issued a voluntary recall of their two-pronged adapters.
Before you panic, we’ve got all of the information here for you, so you can find out if you’re actually affected by it.
First thing’s first. It all depends on where in the world your Apple adapter has been designed. If yours hails from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, China, Japan or Hong Kong, you’re safe.
According to Apple’s website, the recall applies to adapters designed for Continental Europe, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, and Brazil. The statement explains that these ‘may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched’.
These would also have been included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.
There’s also a nifty little diagram to show you what your wall plug should look like, if it’s on the recall list.
Apple explain, ‘Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to exchange affected wall plug adapters with a new, redesigned adapter, free of charge’.
Hats off to them.
Hopefully this has put your mind at ease.
Now you can resume with your everyday iPhone antics in peace.
