Apple has announced a voluntary recall of faulty AC wall plug adapters. 

Have you ever been shocked by your charger?!? Well it turns out that it could be a fault in your product. This week Apple has announced a voluntary recall of their chargers.

A statement released by the tech giant has said, “Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the two prong Apple AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Argentina and Brazil may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched. These wall plug adapters shipped from 2003 to 2015 with Mac and certain iOS devices, and were included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.”

So team, it’s time to head to your local Apple store and they can sort you out with a new shock-less charger. Your new charger will stop you having situations like this…


Earlier this week it was reported that Apple will be releasing a new iPhone as soon as March. 9to5Mac is reporting the phone will be an improved version of the iPhone 5S- it’ll be like they’re taking the updated function of the 6S, and shoving it into a smaller body- which means it would still have the 6’s better quality camera, NFC chip for using Apple Pay, and A8 processor, faster Wi-Fi connectivity, etc. 

Look its ok Apple we all make mistakes; we don’t want this relationship to end. We still love you.
