A woman’s family says 23-year-old Ma Ailun collapsed and died after using her iPhone five while it was charging. Details are sketchy. Some reports say she was answering a call, while others say she was making a call.
Either way, reports say Ma bought the phone last December at an official Apple store and was using the original charger.
An average mobile phone doesn’t have enough volts to harm the human body, though a damaged one can pack a punch. There are definitely a lot of questions and so, it goes without saying, Apple has launched an investigation to get to the bottom of it.
But in the meantime, it might be a good idea to unplug before you talk. Hey, better to be safe than sorry.
