Apple to replace faulty iPhone chargers as a part of an exchange program
Still, Apple will replace said chargers for free and will provide the affected users with redesigned adapters. The replacements come with the A1400 model name and the "CE" letters are only outlined in gray. In order to exchange a faulty adapter for a safe one, you need to take it to an Apple Retail Store or an authorized Apple Service Provider. Your iPhone serial number will have to be verified, too.
Apple says that the A1300 has been on the shelves in Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and Vietnam.
Are you among the affected users?

Funny that just changing the colour of the text can prevent it from heating.
Ps. I'm not being serious here

Isn't this just a marketing thingy? this seems targeted to the people who are planning to buy a new phone and therefore apple wants to keep them by 'showing' that they care about their customers

Did you come up with that all by yourself?

iPhone chargers only last three month at max, so why would I keep the one I got back in 2009/2012?

If this is true....the distortion field really is strong. I got phone chargers from 2010 that still work.
