Battery iPhone 6s Plus caught fire during a replacement in the Apple Store

What happened

The battery of the smartphone iPhone 6s caught fire right during her replacement at the official Apple store in Zurich. The battery flashed when an Apple Store employee tried to remove it from the smartphone's case.

Visitors panicked, rescuers evacuated about 50 customers and employees of the Apple Store. An ambulance was also called. The master who made the replacement of the battery received small burns on the palms. He and seven others received first aid. What caused the fire is still unknown.

Why is it important

Such messages get under close scrutiny both for obvious reasons (what is this game at all!), And after the scandal with Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was withdrawn from production and withdrawn from the market due to a constructive error that in some cases led to a fire apparatus.

Recall that Apple apologized for the artificial slowdown of the old iPhone . As a result, the battery can be replaced in the official service for $ 29. Meanwhile, other smartphone manufacturers swear that they do not slow down old devices like Apple .
