Smoking iPhone battery forces Apple store evacuation

10 Enero 2018

To make matters worse, the battery exploded in a Zurich Apple Store and caused the entire outlet to be evacuated. Apple will also cover the cost of shipping. Transparency has been demonstrated to be an incredibly positive factor for businesses, so it's ethical and pragmatic. Upon checking the phone using the processor benchmarking service Geekbench, the user discovered the device's CPU was significantly slower with the old battery. Many of these are demanding that Apple compensate all iPhone users who have experienced their devices slowing down. Whether it's less expensive to go this route or send it off to Apple will depend on what model phone you have.

"Unbeknownst to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 6s owners, Apple inserted code into iOS 10.2.1 that deliberately slowed down the processing performance of these phones by linking each phone's processing performance with its battery health". Apple says on its website that repairs can take up to five days. Later, we found out that even iPhones who pass Apple's internal tests qualify for $29 battery replacements instead of the usual $79 fee.

'The staff responded well and correctly. "They sprinkled quartz sand over the overheated battery so that the smoke could be contained and sucked out after switching on the ventilation", a police statement said.

However, there was no severe injury to anybody including the technician, but seven people in the Apple Store were given statutory medical aid and no one was hospitalised.

Today, the tech site BGR also took Apple to task for the company's "far from perfect" apology.

Sometimes it's glaringly obvious, like if you iPhone runs out of juice before midday or perhaps doesn't charge to 100%.

The physical damage to the iPhone battery resulted in a short-circuit between cathode and anode leading to fire and smoke.

A user discovered the problem after replacing his iPhone battery and noticing significantly faster processing speed.
