Πρόγραμμα αντικατάστασης προβληματικών καλωδίων USB-C από την Apple

Η Apple ανακοίνωσε πως ξεκινάει την αντικατάσταση καλωδίων τύπου Apple USB-C charge cables, τα οποία συνόδευαν MacBook υπολογιστές, μέχρι τον Ιούνιο του 2015, ενώ η δυνατότητα αντικατάστασης δίνεται και για καλώδια που αγοράστηκαν αυτόνομα.

Το πρόβλημα εντοπίζεται σε σχεδιαστικό σφάλμα, που μπορεί να οδηγήσει σε προβληματική φόρτιση.


A limited number of Apple USB-C charge cables that were included with MacBook computers through June 2015 may fail due to a design issue. As a result, your MacBook may not charge or only charge intermittently when it’s connected to a power adapter with an affected cable.

Apple will provide a new, redesigned USB-C charge cable, free of charge, to all eligible customers. This program also covers Apple USB-C charge cables that were sold as a standalone accessory.

MacBook owners should use the replacement process below to receive a new USB-C charge cable.

Identifying an affected cable

Affected cables have “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.” stamped on them. New, redesigned cables include a serial number after that text. See images below.

Replacement Process

Find a participating Apple Authorized Service Provider to receive a new USB-C charge cable. We will need your MacBook serial number to verify eligibility for this program. Learn how to find your serial number here.

Additional Information

This worldwide Apple program does not extend the standard warranty coverage of the MacBook.

If you believe you have paid for a replacement due to this issue, contact Apple regarding a refund.

The program covers the affected USB-C charge cables until June 8, 2018.
