Three Apple employees were treated for minor injuries after an iPad battery reportedly exploded in a shop in Amsterdam.

The three people are believed to have breathed in the vapors released when the battery has caught fire.

The incident, on 19 August, he brought to the shop in the Amsterdam Leidseplein be evacuated and closed.

The fire brigade were called and dealt with the iPad and made sure the store was properly transmitted.

The shop has now reopened.

The Amsterdam fire brigade wrote on twitter that he witnessed the incident and three people were treated for breathing problems.

A Dutch media site said staff in the shop, initially, he had faced the fuming iPad by putting it in a sand-filled fire bucket.

This reportedly quelled the fire, but not before some potentially harmful irritants had been issued.

Apple news site 9to5mac said they saw more incidents of similar defects from the time that an electronics company had started its program of replacing the battery of the iPhone.

Apple has started replacing the initiative, after being criticised for slowing down older iphone models, whose batteries are aging.

A consumer reaction against the policy has led to it, which offers discounts and free battery swap for some customers.
