Apple replaces Macbook USB-type C power cable due to design flaw

Apple will replace faulty USB-type C cables that can be used to charge a MacBook. The cable suffers from a design flaw which causes the MacBook to not being charged and/or charging is interrupted.


The cables came with MacBooks sold in June last year. The cable works in combination with an adapter to charge the laptop and users complained that the device didn’t properly charge. Apple recognized the problem and found that only the cable had an issue.

The Cupertino technology giant has announced that the cable will be replaced by a new variant. Users that registered their Macbook receive a new cable before the end of February this year. Users who didn’t register can get a new one at an Apple Store or an official service point. Here you can find the affected cables.
