If you’re that worried, just get a uk usb plug.

If the 3pin adaptor is fitted with a suitable fuse and the charger is a firm fit in the 3pin adaptor then all should be fine.

It’s just a generic plug I got from wowcamera thanks for the non troll post
Just keep the EU one for travelling and use any usb plug you have, or order a replacement off Amazon. An iPhone doesn’t need an iPhone plug to charge.

Suggestion: generally avoid any adapter that doesn't have an integral fuse. The Pifco-branded "UK tourist" adapters provide facility to fit fuse of your choice and the physical fit of a typical 2-pin European mains plug is usually very tight. Currently £2.99 Prime but occasionally drop to less than £1

You can get a fused 'UK Visitor adaptor' in most pound shops. They are good quality , I have two and both are Status branded.

Yes I've got a couple of those Status ones as well, good quality as you say.
Is your 2 pin charger an original Apple one? If so, perfectly safe to use with an adapter or keep for holidays. Avoid unbranded cheap chargers.
I tend to only use this type neo, they're fused and unlike the others the EU device is at a different angle so doesn't accidentally come out when unplugging it and stuff fits securely with no wobbling.

I never found the others great, always not a great fit and easy to knock out.
