Apple is recalling iPad and Mac AC adapters

Apple recently created a support site for users who are affected by a recall on AC adapters that were sold between 2003 and 2015 with Mac and “certain iOS” devices. The adapters were also sold as part of Apple’s “World Travel Adapter Kit.” The company said that, in rare cases, the adapters can “create a risk of electrical shock.”

Apple provided the above imagery to help customers determine if they’re affected by the recall. Note how the affected plug has several numbers on the inside wall of the adapter  – or, in some cases, no characters at all. On “redesigned” adapters, ones that aren’t included in the recall, you’ll note a region such as “EUR” on the inside of the wall.

Apple notes that the adapters were created specifically to fit outlets in Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Argentina and Brazil. Adapters for Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, United Kingdom and the U.S. are not included in the recall.

The exchange process sounds pretty easy, just select your adapter and contact Apple Support. Hit the source for more detailed information.
