Apple AirPod Allegedly Explodes, Apple Investigating

Florida man says Apple Air Pod earphone blew

Earlier this week, Floridian Jason Colon was working out at an LA Fitness in St. Petersburg while listening to a dance mix, when all of a sudden the headphones stopped working. "It's the craziest thing I ever went through", Colon said.

Such reports have continued to plague Samsung, which first issued a voluntary recall of its Galaxy Note 7 phones because of a "battery issue" on September 2, offering to give replacement phones to customers who had bought the devices. "I don't know what would've happened to my ear", he said. "You can see flame damage", Colon said. "But I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] ear lobe". The lithium-ion batteries in the phones could overheat and pose a safety risk, the company said after it had received a few dozen reports of Note 7 batteries catching on fire.

A spokesperson from Apple has told the news station that it is investigating the incident to find out what exactly happened.

The first was that the battery components in the Galaxy Note 7 did not fit in the battery's casing.

On the flip side there's been a lot of negatives with a string of software glitches that forced Craig Federighi to cancel a number of features for iPhones this year and push them into 2019; there's been well over 50 class actions over Apple slowing iPhones to date and Cook got caught lying about the timing of the battery notices after blaming customers for not paying attention.

Isaiah Thomas expected to make Lakers debut Saturday
Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman knew he had to do something before the NBA's trade deadline expired Thursday afternoon at 3. The Minnesota Timberwolves put up big numbers offensively, but they couldn't stop one man in Cleveland on Wednesday-LeBron James.

Aaron Gordon withdraws from Slam Dunk Contest
Brown will travel to Los Angeles for the weekend regardless. "When I found out, I was excited", Mitchell told reporters. Gordon was the most accomplished competitor slated for this year's dunk contest . "I'd be excited.

Colon said he was relieved that he was able to take out the headphones from his ear before they blew up.

They're surprisingly good at staying put within your ear, and the battery life is commendable. As for now, what are your thoughts on the AirPods blowing up on a Florida man?

We would, however, welcome a set of small buttons on one or both of the AirPods' stems to skip or replay tracks and change the volume while exercising, as Siri voice commands are just not suitable during exercise.

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