This was in China. Was it even a legit iPhone??

who knows what kind of third party cable or charger she was using, they definitely need to investigate more.

probably some fake battery/ tazer in the chinese rip off phone that exploded or zapped her in the ear.

Can an iPhone deliver enough electricity to kill a person?

I'm completely ignorant to the topic of death by electrocution, so i AM asking, not being sarcastic or anything.
FriedGoat  +   377d ago
The iPhone itself, probably not. But when plugged into the mains, if the phone conducts the electricity, then yes.
SilentNegotiator  +   376d ago
I mean, that sounds right, but I'm just not certain if enough voltage could travel through the iPhone portion itself, once it has made its way up.

But again, IDK.

Death by iphone, how tragic.

Last I check the voltaged used to charge a iphone was very little, well below the amount to kill a human.

If I am right in thinking. This incident is a PR stunt by some Chinese company to smear Apple on the grounds that their tech is low cost / poor quality.

The fact the sister ran to tell everyone immediately not use iphone and the worldwide coverage tells u some thing isn't quiet right. Its hard enough for anyone countries news channels to make a news story that goes global.

yeah sounds pretty fake and like some people just want to get some money. theres some ruthless people in china I mean I just read some china woman stabbed her baby 90 times and some china people walked over a person who was hit by a car for many many hours. a lot of crazy things people do in china right now I wouldn't go visit there that's for sure. seen a vid of kids steealing peoples wallets and such as well.

I managed to electrocute myself while my iPad was charging, I'm still alive.. I think.

In chinese culture within china all they care about is money. Its a sad shame but they saw a chance as soon as they found out she got shocked.
Its a sad fact in china that money outweighs life.
In america we have a similar issue (but its not advertised as such.)
