**Product Recall** Apple Three-Prong AC Wall Plug Adapter

Affected Model.

Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the Apple three-prong AC wall plug adapters designed primarily for use in the United Kingdom, Singapore, and Hong Kong may break and create a risk of electrical shock if exposed metal parts are touched. This wall plug adapter shipped from 2003 to 2010 with Mac and certain iOS devices, and was also included in the Apple World Travel Adapter Kit.

Customer safety is always Apple’s top priority, and we have voluntarily decided to exchange affected wall plug adapters with a new adapter, free of charge. We encourage customers to exchange their wall plug adapter using the process below.

Identifying your wall plug adapter

Compare your adapter to the images below. Affected three-prong wall plug adapters are white, with no letters in the inside slot where it attaches to an Apple power adapter. New adapters are white with gray on the inside portion that attaches to the power adapter.

Note: Apple USB power adapters are not affected by this

Exchange Process

Please choose one of the following options below. We will need to verify your Mac, iPad, iPhone or iPod serial number as part of the exchange process so please find your serial number in advance. Finding your device serial number is easy.

Customers who purchased an Apple World Travel Adapter Kit should use one of the options above to exchange their affected three-prong wall plug adapter.

Additional Information

This program does not affect your statutory or warranty rights.

AC wall plug adapters designed for use in Continental Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Argentina and Brazil may be part of the Apple AC Wall Plug Adapter Recall Program.

New iPhone XS 2018 release date, price & specs rumours

Apple will be launching its next iPhone at an event on 12th September. Here’s all the news and rumours about Apple’s new iPhones for 2018 (aka iPhone XS or iPhone X Plus): their release date, new features, design, price & tech specs

Picture Credit: Apple Website

Apple’s next batch of iPhones will be announced at a launch event on 12 Sept in California. We expect to see three new iPhone X-style handsets, including a larger iPhone X Plus and a cheaper LCD model.

Apple hasn’t officially stated that iPhones will be unveiled – the web page merely calls it an ‘Apple Special Event from the Steve Jobs Theater’ – but it’s an extremely safe bet. The lack of a new iPhone would disappoint fans, analysts and journalists, and lead to a drop in Apple’s share price.

If you want to know more about the forthcoming phones, you’ve come to the right place. In this article we round up all the news about the new iPhones’ release date, names, prices, design changes, tech specs and new features. Red and blue dummy models have leaked, while multiple sources now predict Apple Pencil support.

What to do if your iPhone is hit by the Black Spot of Death Message

Published: 14th May 2018

Updated: 20th May 2018

Users of iPhone have been warned of an iMessage bug that will cause your phone to become completely unusable.

Dubbed the “Black Dot Of Death” when received the message will overload your iPhone with thousands of hidden Unicode text.

You won’t be able to re-open the messages app to delete it and there is no easy way to delete the message once you receive it.

If you receive the message and all it contains is a black dot, when you click on the dot it will make the screen go completely blank until Apple issues a fix for you.

If you have been hit with the Black Dot of Death, there are a few ways you can delete it.

One is to force close the messenger app, use 3D Touch from the home screen to select a new message, then cancel out of it. From there you should be able to go to the list of conversations on iMessage and safely delete the conversation containing the Black Dot.

If your phone doesn’t have 3D Touch, you can use Siri to reply to the message until the original “Black Dot” message is pushed out of the visible part of the conversation on the screen. Then you will safely be able to delete the conversation.

Apple’s new iPhone X as features singing poop

Commentary: It’s Christmastime, and Apple really wants to inspire you to buy its smartphone of the future … with four new ads.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.

He/she/it sings too.

Soon, you’ll be sitting round the fire, counting your blessings, surrounded by those you love the most.

You’ll look at your new gifts — perhaps even the iPhone X you bought for yourself — and insist on playing with them.

This may involve you animating yourself in the Messages app as a piece of excreta.

I refer, of course, to the poop emoji and Apple’s stunning technological breakthrough in animating it and allowing you to, well, inhabit its… gosh, this description cannot end well.

A new ad, one of four new spots for the iPhone X, shows how exciting animojis can be. To the tune of Big Boi’s “All Night,” we see a comely woman transform herself into various so-called animojis and singing along.

iPhone X — Animoji Yourself — Apple

She’s a singing unicorn, a singing fox, a singing pig and the aforementioned melodious excreta.

More Technically Incorrect

• Samsung releases an utterly mesmerizing washing machine ad

• Dictionary.com names ‘complicit’ word of the year

• Elon Musk sees backflipping robot, thinks Apocalypse

“Don’t be shy, don’t be shy,” sings Big Boi.

She isn’t, not one bit.

It seems Apple views these animojis as a way to differentiate its “future of the smartphone.”

As it does Face ID. Indeed, Cupertino has also released ads to reassure you that Face ID is a way of life, rather than a potential security nightmare.

Not only does it allow you to sing poop music, it also lets you log into apps and pay for things with your face.

iPhone X — Introducing Face ID — Apple

And look, it’ll never keep you in the dark. You don’t even have to turn the light on to unlock it, another ad shows.

You just have to remember where you left your phone.

iPhone X — Opens in the Dark — Apple

You see, Apple wants to dispel every one of your fears, so that you can have a truly happy holiday.

It wants you to believe that, despite the apparent evidence of a 10-year-old who used his own face to unlock his mom’s iPhone X — this new phone will recognize you no matter how much you try to fool it.

Why, here, in another ad, is a young woman desperately trying to fool the X by pulling all sorts of faces and employing an extremely professional makeup artist and stylist.

Which still leaves open the question of whether this £1,000 phone would recognize her if she dressed her face up to be a poop emoji.
