This morning, one of my users brought their iPhone 4 into me. She’s had it 32 days. “The case doesn’t fit right anymore!” she exclaimed. “The back is falling off!” And indeed it was. The battery had swelled up enough to push the back off for good. It was very odd.
I can’t quite decide if this is more or less dramatic than my former 15″ Macbook Pro’s power adapter connector catching fire… on my wooden coffee table. If I ever missed a blogable moment, that was it. So, yeah, maybe this is less exciting. But the resolution was equally mundane in both cases – a quick trip to the Apple Store is all it took for a replacement.
