South Korea might investigate Apple iPhone 6s #Batterygate
The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) is concerned that the issue with the iPhone 6s battery could be pointing to a safety issue, similar to the battery problems that led to the two recalls of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. There are fears that the problem is more widespread than Apple is letting on. Reports out of China suggest that the Apple iPhone 6 is experiencing the same problem. And while not confirmed, a Chinese watchdog agency says that it has received several claims about iPhone units exploding.
Under Korean law, KATS can order a national recall. The agency is in talks with Apple Korea, the tech titan's Korean unit. For its part, Apple says that only a small number of iPhone 6s handsets are affected, and states that the issue is not a safety concern.
