The users do not need to be concerned about the faulty iPhone power adapters, as Apple introduces a replacement program to exchange the affected components. 

According to Mac Rumors, the program has been launched on Friday with a view to replacing the overheating adapters, known as Model A1300, which were provided with older models of Apple’s smartphone, including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, from October 2009 to September 2012.

Apple said, “Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to exchange every affected power adapter for a new, redesigned adapter, free of charge.” The company added, “We encourage customers to exchange any affected adapter for a new one as soon as possible.”

The users are suggested to bring the affected adapter either in Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service provider. The customer care representative will check the validity of the serial number, consequently providing new adapters to the consumers.
