iPhone expels smoke, extinguished by flight attendant

iPhone expels smoke on planeRegional Australian airline Regional Express reports that a passenger’s iPhone had ”significant amount of dense smoke” accompanying a red glow after landing in Sydney last week.

Apple announced a recalled of first-generation iPod Nanos sold from late 2005 to 2006 earlier this month stating the devices had faulty batteries, but never was any mention of iPhones in the recall. While devices are known to catch fire from misuse or overcharging, Apple is interested in investigating the smoking-gun.

“We look forward to working with the officials investigating this incident,” Natalie Harrison, Cupertino-based Apple Inc., said on Tuesday. ”However, we do have the phone, it’s in our custody, and we will be undertaking a technical examination of it.”

Makes you wonder if the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will now ban iPhones (we all know how anal they are). Joking aside, no one was seriously injured–just an unhappy consumer. The incident can be found on Australian Transport Safety Bureau website as “Smoke event“, from November 25, but provides no in-depth details.
