Apple investigating exploding AirPod claim

Colon said other users should be careful with the AirPods, saying "Just because it happens to me doesn't mean it won't happen again".

He promptly took both AirPods out and set them on a bit of rec center hardware while he looked for help, however when he restored, the AirPod being referred to was roasted and broken separated. His right Apple AirPod was emitting a steady flow of white smoke while Colon worked out to a dance music playlist.

"It was already like this. It was already popped", said Colon. "I don't know what would've happened to my ear, you know? You can see fire harm", he told WFLA.

"I don't know what would've happened to my ear". "But I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] ear lobe. My ear lobes could've been burnt", he said.




Speaking to local news station News Channel Eight, he added: 'It's the craziest thing I ever went through.

An Apple spokeswoman tells 8 On Your Side the company is investigating and and will reach out to Colon. If there was any internal issue found, the giant may recall the AirPods back in the coming months.
