Last week, Apple's Apple Store launched two security incidents abroad. It caused widespread concern. A Apple Store in Zurich, Switzerland, was once at a Apple Store in Valencia, Spain. The two accident was caused by a fire when changing batteries. At that time, the apple store clerk evacuated the customers in the shop, and many people were sent to the hospital for inhaling heavy smoke. The first reaction was to question the quality of the iPhone battery, but after the investigation, the problem appeared to be in the craft of the shop assistant.
A DIY fan named Andrew Phane told the media that the two iPhone battery deflagration incidents were concentrated in Apple's preferential battery replacement program. During the period during which the battery was replaced centrally, and the two phones were iPhone 6s and the other was not very clear, he speculated that the battery was short-circuited due to a distortion in the replacement process. Thus causing an explosion.
To restore this phenomenon, Andr Penn replaced four iPhone 6 batteries, one of which almost exploded. Because the iPhone battery is actually fixed on the back with a rubber strip, it should be removed by heating and separating, otherwise the adhesive of the rubber strip will distort the battery. It could even separate the bottom of the battery. The time Andrew nearly exploded, it was just because the battery was bent and short-circuited, but fortunately Andrew threw it into the water the first time it emitted smoke. So it didn't explode.
So no surprise, when the demand for the battery is rising, Apple StoreGenius BarThe staff may not do every step according to the standard, so in some bad luck, there will be a short circuit. For this conjecture, although Apple has not yet given relevant test reports, it is more convincing. After all, the two accidents occurred in the process of battery replacement, and Andrew himself said that 99.99% was convinced that his inference was correct.
So, although the amount of battery replacement is almost unprecedented, Apple employees need to be more patient and cautious. Otherwise, there may be more similar "explosions" in the future.
