Apple investigating an AirPod explosion

Apple investigating an AirPod explosion

As per some reports from WFLA Apple's wireless Air-pods burst open when the user was in mid of a workout session.

Apple is investigating an incident in which a user's AirPods allegedly began emitting smoke and blew up, according to WFLA. Acting quickly and wisely, Colon removed his AirPods and placed them down on a piece of equipment so that he could go and get help from gym employees.

When he came back, he found that the right ear bud had exploded, with the case showing signs of charring and the internal components laid bare.

"It was already popped", he said. I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried! "But I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] ear lobe". "My earlobes could've been burnt".


You look at Apple's wireless Bluetooth powered AirPods and you think that here is a benign device that could never cause a problem. The energy then causes an increase in temperature resulting in more energy release. The ill-fated smartphone was recalled (twice) because too many of them kept exploding - and eventually discontinued.

The first was that the battery components in the Galaxy Note 7 did not fit in the battery's casing. A year ago, a lady revealed that her earphones detonated while she was wearing them on a plane and obviously there was the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 calamity in 2016.

Robots are the next step in using technology to explore sexuality.

We've seen reports like this previously. As for now, what are your thoughts on the AirPods blowing up on a Florida man? Of course, there is also the possibility that Colon received a faulty unit. When he returned, it appeared that the AirPod had exploded into bits. An Apple spokeswoman tells 8 On Your Side that the company is investigating and will reach out to Colon.
