"The staff responded well and correctly", said the police.

Forensics team have arrived at the scene and are investigating the battery fire issue. "It sprinkled quartz sand over the overheated battery so that the smoke could be contained and sucked out after switching on the ventilation". The detonation of the device burned the victim's hand slightly and seven other people who were present at the store were given medical attention.

It's very rare for an iPhone battery to explode so it's very unlikely that Apple will have to follow in Samsung's footsteps and recall its devices.

"Apple's proposed solutions have prompted additional criticism from some customers, particularly its decision not to provide free replacement batteries", wrote Mr. Thune, who requested answers by January 23.

An iPhone is only eligible for one no-questions asked discounted battery replacement. "You need to send the phone in.' And I was like, 'What's going on with my stomach?'", she said.

Apple now faces over two dozen lawsuits around the world that either accuse the company of intentionally slowing down older iPhones, or at least of failing to disclose power management changes it made starting in iOS 10.2.1. The French fraud watchdog, which is part of the finance ministry, opened an investigation last week over alleged "deception and planned obsolescence", following a complaint by a consumer rights group.

The revelation led to numerous complaints from iPhone users that Apple was deliberately throttling their devices without informing them why or giving them the ability to opt out. "Unlike in Europe and the United States, where the vast majority of new early iPhone X sales came from existing Apple smartphone owners, in urban China there are significant numbers of Huawei, Xiaomi and Samsung customers switching to the new iPhone models, which they deem a cut above the rest". "We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down".
