'Exploding' iPhones prompt safety investigation .The investigation follows reports from Britain, France, Holland and Sweden that some digital music players and mobile phones have spontaneously combusted in the sunshine.

One French teenager claims to have been injured when his girlfriend's iPhone apparently exploded into pieces after starting to "crackle and pop".

The European Commission has asked Apple to share any relevant information and the company is carrying out a full investigation.

200 million iPods and 26 million iPhones have been sold in Europe and Apple claims to have ruled out any widespread safety problem.

An Apple spokesman said: "We are aware of these reports and we are waiting to receive the units from the customers. Until we have the full details, we don't have anything further to add."


Don't know if this is a real worry but just thought it might be of note to some people who own the relevant products

I am admittedly from the north, but mine doesn't even get warm....
I heard about this on the news this morning - the spokesperson said it was just a few isolated incidents... most likely the first few in many around europe.
lol at the "summer" weather, my Ipod touch didn't explode last week whilst I was in Dahab with average temperatures of 41 degrees
I reckon he put it in a microwave, nice little claim
mine gets quite hot when i use it lots maybe i shouldnt use it lots in the sun.
