According to a report, Apple has commented down on the event of iPhone battery fires that were reported in a Chinese consumer protection report that caught instant media attention and social media buzz altogether. Apple states that it has tested those iPhones and all of them seem to be causing fire because of external damage.
Apple Inc. was again in news for the wrong reasons and this time for the series of iPhone 6 battery fires that were reported in a Chinese consumer protection report that immediately caught media attention and social media buzz altogether. The report is not so old and was published this week only. Apple finally thought to comment on the matters and stated that all of the eight iPhone 6 devices that were on fire were due to external damage done to them. The Shanghai Consumer Council’s report that was released on Friday detailing the above battery fires in eight iPhone 6 handsets also detailed the “battery issue” causing iPhone 6 handsets to power down before their batteries got depleted.
For this Apple has already recalled a range of affected iphones from China that would be replaced free of cost but the burn issues are still stated by the firm as none of their fault as it seems to be due to external damage.
Apple’s Spokeswomen spoke to Reuters via email on the same. She stated, “The units we’ve analyzed so far have clearly shown that external physical damage happened to them which led to the thermal event,”
Not only this but The U.S. tech firm has already been watching a sales drop issue from the past three quarters as domestic Smartphone makers compete with the firm by bringing high-spec handsets at lower price points. The firm hopes to bounce back with the figures in the first quarter of next year with its iPhone 7.
