  • Apple is investigating why one AirPod caught on fire in Florida

A man in Florida asserts that one of his Apple AirPods started smoking and later detonated. You can't even imagine the damage that it could have caused Mr. Colon is the AirPods would have popped in while still in his ears. He removed both AirPods and left them on a piece of equipment as he went to seek help.

But when he returned, the report continues, Colton was shocked to learn that his left AirPod had completely burnt to a crisp - though the right AirPod remained in-tact.

"I didn't see it happen, but, I mean, it was already fried", Colon told local television station WFLA TV. "You can see where it looks like there's flame damage".

Brady becomes oldest MVP in National Football League history

Apple said it was investigating.

He said the incident was the "craziest thing I've ever went through", and was grateful he took the headphone out in time. "But I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] ear lobe".

Sticking points could include concerns over possible prosecution for corruption allegations that remain against Zuma. Ramaphosa said direct talks were an opportunity to reach an agreement without spreading discord or division.

Again, the price is steep enough to put some people off, but we would argue $159 (£159) is not entirely unreasonable for high quality wireless headphones - AirPods are roughly in line with their rivals.

This caused the battery cell's upper right corner to be crimped by the casing.

An Apple spokesperson, in response to question for comment from Channel 8 News, said the company has launched an investigation into the incident and will reach out to Colton, accordingly.
