19 Aug European regulators examine reports of exploding iPhones
PARIS — The European Commission said Tuesday that it was examining the safety of Apple iPhones and iPods, after news reports said that several of the devices had exploded.
Helen Kearns, a spokeswoman for Meglena Kuneva, the consumer protection commissioner, said Apple was cooperating with the commission in examining reports of problems with two iPhones in France and an iPod in Britain.
“At the moment, they said they regard these as isolated incidents and they don’t have evidence of a general problem,” Ms. Kearns said.
Apple did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment. A spokesman told Reuters: “We are aware of these 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.”
