Some owners of the iPhone 5 have been experiencing trouble with the device's battery, and Apple today launched a replacement program to remedy the problem. Apple claims that the faulty devices were sold between September of 2012 and January of 2013 and suffer from shorter battery life and the need for frequent charges.
Apple's Lightning cable is pretty neat, aside from that whole rendering-all-our-previous-iOS-peripherals-useless thing. But that's not to say that there haven't been problems. Since its introduction with the iPhone 5, the cable has suffered from frequent reports of breaking and fraying, and now ZDNet's John O'Grady has noticed that it's prone to corrosion as well.
It turns out it's not just Apple products that have been involved in tragic incidents in China lately. As reported by Gizmodo, a man in Hong Kong was simply playing an app on his Samsung Galaxy S4 when the device allegedly exploded. After he threw it across the room and under the couch in panic, the fire spread and caused some massive damage to his apartment.
