Earlier I posted a link to a news report about some iPhones exploding in Europe. "Explode" was a bit of media exaggeration, since what happened was that the glass shattered. But no one got hurt, and there was only a small number of instances. Now the BBC is reporting that Apple investigated the issue and that in every case if found that some kind of force had been applied to the screen, though some people involved deny that.
