    I just bought a new iPhone 5s, and remember reading about the chargers having to have a green dot on them to show that it's a safe one. mine doesn't have the green dot. was this issue a thing of the past, or should I look into getting another?

    Some of my came with green dots, some didn't. I don't think it's anything to worry about, because many third party charger bricks don't come with a green dot, if they weren't safe, why are they still making them?

    Don't sweat it.

    If you bought yours new, you shouldn't worry at all about it. It came with a genuine Apple part and will be covered under warranty should there be a problem.

    My 5s charger does have the green dot - I just had to check!

    That being said... they eventually put green dots on knockoff chargers.

    It has nothing to do with safety. All it means it was manufactured by Flextronics. Thye put green dots on everything they make.
