Apple iPod Overheats: No signs of a recall

Yet again, Apple have been in the spotlight this time over reported cases of iPods’ overheating. In the last few months, Apple have had to contend with problems such as reception issues with the loss of signal and the delayed release date of the white iPhone 4. The latest incident happened on Friday in Tokyo, Japan, on a busy commuter train when an Apple iPod music player overheated after passengers complained.

According to Yahoo! News, the commuter train which was travelling to the capital’s centre at approximately 8.20 am (12.20 am British time), came to a stand still when a burning smell was reported resulting in the incident having to be investigated. A passenger came forward after the iPod she had been listening to had burst apart.

Last month in Japan, the trade ministry ordered that first generation iPod nano music players came under stricter safety warnings, after 60 cases of overheating were reported on these devices. When Apple looked into this, it was concluded that a single battery supplier was to blame for this.
