If you're worried about the safety of your aftermarket iPhone, iPod or iPad charger you'll be able to swap it for a genuine charger for $14 from August 16.

Owners of an aftermarket iPhone, iPod or iPad charger in Australia will be able to walk into an Apple store and swap it over for a genuine charger for $14 from August 16.
