EU warns of taking iPhones off the market
This step is being planned after Kuneva received complaints from Britain, France and Germany, with one involving a girl who caught fire when her phone blew up in front of her.
Kuneva said, "We are checking with labs to see if there is a problem with the phone, batteries or if there has been misuse of the device. We need to have 100 percent certainty from one member state that these goods are dangerous. If I receive from the French authorities that they are dangerous, I will act in the interests of the consumer."
This can affect the future of Apple in the market, as market researchers expect another 23 million people to buy iPhones this year. U.S. technology giant Apple, which makes the iPhone and the iPod music player, assured the EU on August 14 that the exploding screen cases reported so far were 'isolated incidents'.
