Apple's battery woes heat up: Store evacuated as one starts smoking

Apple's battery woes heat up: Store evacuated as one starts smoking

"Still, it is difficult to understand why the cost is so high". The $29 price is only available in the United States, with prices differing in various countries on the basis of exchange rates. Six other people received medical care on site - presumably for smoke inhalation - but none required hospital treatment. Your local shop might have more supply, but battling hordes for repair (rather than a sexy new phone) is an unusual experience at an Apple store. The news cycle and the exaggerated outrage of a large corporation's critics do not.

Later, the firemen were summoned and they took over the situation and mitigated the issue.

Then be prepared to wait.

We previously heard that Apple would replace the battery on your iPhone whether or not it passes the diagnostic battery tests.

Apple has not given any official statement on this yet.

Apple CEO Tim Cook can tap dance all he wants to iTunes music on his new Apple phone, but he can't overcome the fact that it appears the incredibly profitable company he leads pulled a fast one on many loyal customers. So, Apple dropped their charge for providing that service by $50 to $29 and made a few other changes, as detailed here.

The injured staffer sustained light injuries to the hand when the battery he was removing from the phone overheated.

That discovery quickly snowballed into a major crisis that Apple has nobody to blame for but itself. Transparency has been demonstrated to be an incredibly positive factor for businesses, so it's ethical and pragmatic. Hans Berman, incidentally, was also the law firm that took on and won the $450 million iBooks price-fixing case back in 2015, 9to5Mac reported.

Apple's battery replacement program isn't new. According to police, the Apple Store staff reacted timely and appropriately by sprinkling quartz sand over the tantrum-throwing battery and maxing out the facility's ventilation to have it suck out the smoke.

After considering what the ethical course of action would be, they ended up telling the cold hard truth - and it was the best idea they could have had.
