European Commission officials said Tuesday that Apple Inc. is looking into reports of exploding iPhones and iPods, after several dissatisfied customers claimed that their devices had exploded.
Reuters reported that a commission spokesperson said Apple called the incidents isolated and not a problem they have with all their iPhones and iPods.
They're trying to get more information on the specific details of those incidents (reported in the media) and they will do tests as necessary to investigate the possible cause, Reuters quoted spokeswoman Helen Kearns as saying.
Several reports of exploding Apple devices have been reported in Europe over the last week. A teenager in France said last week that he was slightly injured when his girlfriend's iPhone hissed and shattered.
The Telegraph in Great Britain cited other incidents in Britain, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Earlier in June, Apple recalled all first-generation iPod Nanos in South Korea after complaints about batteries.
