Exploding iPhone

I read an article today about exploding iPhones: a guy from Southern France was giving a call when his iPhone exploded and severely hurt one of his eyes. The article also mentioned that a similar fact happened in England a few weeks ago, and that it happened several times in the US (but Apple tries to minimize the impact of such reports, obviously). They also say that only 0,0001% of the iPhones are concerned (however, considering the huge volumes of iPhones in circulation, it can prove non negligible).

My aunt has told me the similar situation (she said she heard it from TV news), and I guess she was right. I don't know if iPod Touch is also the same situation as the iPhone in this case, but anything is possible.

Re: Exploding iPhone

Apple's engineers just published a report stating that the explosions of IPhones were due to the "shocks" they received :?

Re: Exploding iPhone

Best might be to get your iphone at a certified reseller, or in an Apple Store.

Re: Exploding iPhone

crikey i'v not heard of an exploding iphone before. i guess it would be a pretty bad injury if it was in use at the time. i'd get one at an official apple shop so could easily return it!

Re: Exploding iPhone

Well the point is that Apple first said that their Iphones were nit directly at the origin of those explosions; only when those kept happening again and again did Apple admit that there was something wrong (it's very similar to what happened with Ipod nano's crackling screens).
