Vodafone Store Evacuated Due To Exploding iPad
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
There have been a few reports of iPhones, iPads and iPods exploding over the years, more so in recent month. I do think it is fair to say that nearly all electrical device can and do explode on rare occasions and circumstances, and that I doubt these incidents are limited to Apple devices.
Reports are now coming in the a Vodafone store in Australia was evacuated due to an iPad exploding in the store, which all sound a little dramatic, I mean, how much damage can one iPad do?
According to a Vodaphone spokesperson, the Canberra based store’s caught alight from its charging port. Which quickly led to the fire brigade being called and the store to be evacuated, the shop was quickly filling with acrid smoke, sparks and flames from the iPad as it’s power connector continued to burn.
As you can see from the image above, the iPad in question is left looking more like a baking tray than an electronic device, so we cannot even identify what model it was.
Apple has since collected the charred device for testing.
