Apple claims exploding Beats headphones ‘not our fault’

Apple Beats headphones exploding

Exploding electronics are a, uh, hot topic lately. Between the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall and an epidemic of exploding hoverboards, people are more aware than ever that things with batteries go up in flames occasionally.

So for Apple, being associated with any fire is a bad thing. In the case of a woman whose Beats heaphones exploded on a plane, Apple is going to pains to point out that it's not Apple's fault.

Get ready for the new Beats (wireless?) headphones at iPhone event

beats-solo-2 That’s what we call a teeny tiny fuckup. Beats sent a press release to iGen.fr and other French media outlets saying that they should expect new Beats products on September 7 during Apple’s press conference.

Apple updates Radio tab with live Beats 1 show details and artwork in iOS Music app

Apple has rolled out a nice enhancement to the Radio tab in the Music app, further promoting Beats 1 as a live always-on service. As pictured above, rather than displaying the same static image of the Beats 1 logo with a Listen Now subtitle, the Radio tab now updates along with the live schedule … displaying live show titles, host names, description and artwork for the current show. This change allows users to quickly find out what’s on right now and could convert more people into actively listening to the free Beats 1 radio station.

The Radio tab content is largely controlled by server-side data, so Apple has been able to apply this change without an iOS system update; it is appearing on devices running the public iOS 9.2.1 and beta iOS 9.3 seeds.
