After looking its horrible damaged piece of product from image, the technological experts announced it as extremely damaged piece. The product from the image appeared after fire brigade run into help to extinguish the flaming fire. An Apple employee, reported immediately at Vodafon store to collect the damage product for official investigation on product or so called ‘autopsy’. After investigating more on this scene, the cause of fire was due to faulty overcharge protection circuit.

Lithium polymer batteries of the type installed in iPad Air tends to explode on overcharging. Thus most of similar product does come with a protection circuit. But this iPad Air was no exception; it didn’t receive the standard issue circuit. Apple officials are yet to give statement about the cause of the explosion. This was first publicly known accident involving an Apple tablet.

But now, we guess it’s safe to say that our brand-new iPad Air won’t blow up Apple will surely take step to cure this issue.
