  • Apple Investigating Exploding iPhones
    On Tuesday European Commission officials reported that Apple is investigating the reports of exploding iPhones. Apple is claiming that the exploding iPhone issues are isolated and not a general problem.

    According to European Commission spokeswoman Helen Kearns
    Apple have come back to us ... and what they've said to us is that they consider these are isolated incidents. They don't consider that there's a general problem.
    An Apple Europe Ltd. spoksman said
    We are aware of these (media) reports and we are waiting to receive the iPhones from the customers. Until we have the full details, we don't have anything further to add.
    This comes after recent various reports of iPhones exploding the most recent from a teenager in France who claimed that he was injured when his iPhone made a hissing noise and shattered.

    There are no specifics concerning which generation of iPhone Apple is investigating as this issue stems back at least the the iPhone 3G when an iPhone owner was burned by his device.

      It's not jailbreaked, please and thank you
      I have little annoyances that don't make a difference in the world but make a huge difference to me.
      I actually accept both terms, citing the example of "hang" and "hung." "Hung" is the past tense of "hang," unless you're speaking of executing someone. Then, the proper past tense would be "hanged."

      I prefer the term "jailbroken," myself.

      My favorite part about the whole thing is that Apple refuses to replace these iPhones because the small explosion cracked the screen, which voids your warranty.

      All of this exploding iPhones is a bunch of crap. The term exploding (or imploding as 1 article stated) is being used loosely and i have not seen a picture of one exploded. The one in the picture on the fist post is MELTED at the connection port (it did not even show the screen). That is not exploded in my opinion. there are more sold in the US but they are not EXPLODING here (if thats wht you want to call it). Its just people scamming. Complete BULL****. IMO people are trying to get there iphone replaced for free for damage that was the there fault. Some of the reported exploded iphones have been returned to apple,examined by apple, and apple says that the cracked screen (or EXPLODED phone) was caused by external pressure. What gets me is the exploding term. If an iPhone exploded (or any other electronic device) it would be in a couple of pieces. From what i have read the only thing seen was a melted connector or a cracked screen. Again i think most all of this is BULL****.

      Maybe the iPhone didn't explode but something INSIDE did! That would be enough to cause damage but not the phone to break into multiple pieces
