Apple to replace faulty USB-C cables

New York, Feb 14 (IANS) US tech giant Apple has announced a worldwide replacement programme for the USB-C cable that it shipped between April and June, 2015.

The cable was released with the 12-inch Retina Macbook last year, and according to Apple, it is possible for the cable to fail without warning due to flaw in the design.

“As a result, your MacBook may not charge or only charge intermittently when it’s connected to a power adapter with an affected cable,” iClarified quoted Apple’s statement as saying on Saturday.

The buyers of these cables may get a new cable if they gave Apple their mailing address when registering for MacBook.

Others can contact authorised Apple service provider, or contact Apple customer support.

If any user has bought a new one, he/she is eligible for a refund.
