According to foreign media iCulture, Apple's retail store in Amsterdam has urgently evacuated the store's consumers and temporarily shut down due to the explosion of the iPad battery and the release of potentially harmful substances into the air.
It is understood that Apple employees safely protected the iPad after it exploded and pierced the battery in a sand container. Fortunately, the accident did not cause fire or smoke, and there were no major casualties. However, three employees with difficulty breathing were treated by emergency personnel. Due to possible chemical release after the iPad battery explodes, the Apple Store has been shut down and firefighters are working to ventilate and remove all harmful gases.
Although it has nothing to do with the iPad incident today, as Apple began the iPhone battery replacement program, we have seen many similar incidents in the past few months. This year's Apple stores in Switzerland and Spain have evacuated the crowd due to overheating of iPhone batteries. Like today's accident, the previous incident did not cause any serious harm, but several employees of Apple suffered a minor burn.
Xiao Bian needs to remind the Fengyou friends not to try to replace the inflated battery with their iPhone or iPad. The best way is to go to the Apple Store or choose an Apple Authorized Service Provider as soon as possible.
