Apple is investigating claims that iPhone and iPod touch models exploded and even injured users, according to the European Commission. Does it mean your iPhone is at risk? Read on to see what it says.
According to a spokeswoman for the suits in Brussels, Apple has been looking into recent reports of iPhones becoming iFireballs. “Apple have come back to us [about the claims],” Helen Kearns said.
One recent report even claimed that an iPhone’s screen popped and shattered, slightly injuring its French owner. In another incident, Apple was sued earlier this year when a claimant alleged his iPod touch exploded, giving him second degree burns.
A worrying thought, but Apple told the Commission that these were “isolated” incidents. Here’s hoping that’s the case: having to recall devices that have sold in the tens of millions would be, shall we say, troublesome.
