An iPad that was demoed at a Vodafone store in Australia burst into flames, according to a report.
A Vodafone store in Canberra, Australia was running an iPad demo model that caused a "burst of flames" earlier this week, according to a Vodafone spokesperson, speaking to News.com.au in an interview published on Friday. The iPad forced the store to evacuate customers, but no one was injured, according to the spokesperson.
According to News.com.au, after fire fighters entered the building, they discovered that sparks were coming from the iPad's charging port.
