Apple is recalling iPhone chargers across Australia

AUSTRALIANS are being ordered to inspect their Apple wall chargers after the technological giant released a recall for all wall adapters released in the past 12 years.

Apple is warning that Australian plug adaptors may break and create a risk of electrical shock.

The recall also affects chargers in New Zealand, Korea, Argentina, Brazil and Continental Europe.

"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," Apple wrote on its website.

Apple is now telling all affected owners to find their local Apple Store or provider, visit their website or contact Apple Support.
