Safety concerns prompt exchange

APPLE has launched an exchange programme for some of its iPhone chargers which might overheat and pose a safety risk.

Apple has warned in rare cases the Apple 5W European USB power adapter sold between October 2009 and September 2012 may not be safe. Apple will swap affected power adapters for a new one, free of charge.
