Apple has released more details about their new Apple USB-C Charge Cable Replacement Program which has been rolled out to correct design issues that are affecting some Apple USB-C charging cables.
As you can see in the image below the affected USB-C charging cables do not have a serial number after the words “ Assembled In China” and Apple has now made a number of options available to swap out your charging cable for a new one.
Apple explains more :
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.
For MacBook owners who provided a valid mailing address during the product registration process or Apple Online Store purchase, Apple will send you a new cable by the end of February 2016. All other eligible MacBook owners should use the replacement process below to receive a new USB-C charge cable.
