Did a woman in China get electrocuted by her charging iPhone? Apple says it will “fully investigate” reports that a 23-year-old flight attendant was killed by her iPhone, as her family claims. Ma Ailun’s older sister posted a message online Thursday that Ma was electrocuted when she answered her phone while it was charging. Police say they are investigating her death but haven’t confirmed the phone was the cause. "We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic incident and offer our condolences to the Ma family," Apple said in a statement.
