Your iPhone May Physically Shock You


Most products today have their own power supply that needs to be charged with electricity to keep your phone enabled to complete tasks. Your phone may deliver a shocking result when in use. There have been few cases lately of people being physically shocked by their iPhone.

In the latest Australian incident, a woman in her 20s, from the Sydney suburb of Chatswood, was taken by ambulance to the Royal North Shore Hospital after allegedly receiving a shock from her iPhone. Luckily, she received minor injuries and was in stable condition. It is not known whether the phone was plugged into the charger during the incident. A spokeswoman  for the hospital stated paramedics had responded to a number of shocks from mobile phone chargers this year.

New South Wales Ambulance has attended to 232 emergency calls for iPhone electric shocks in the first six months of this year, Sydney’s Daily Telegraph reported. The spokeswoman said mobile phone users should keep an eye on their phone’s connection. “If the appliances are dusty, they should be given a vacuum clean,” she said, suggesting that dust could get into the terminals and cause a short circuit.

Inspector John Brotherhood of the ambulance service warned that a slight shock could cause serious health problems. “It takes only a small shock to interfere with your heart. Basically, if the jolt moves you, if it takes your breath away, or if it’s at all a cause for concern, you need to get it checked out.”

Earlier this month, air stewardess Ma Ailun was killed by an electric shock when she answered a call on her iPhone 5 while it was charging. News of the death of the 23-year-old was posted on the Internet by her sister, prompting criticism of Apple among the country’s millions of iPhone users. “I want to warn everyone else not to make phone calls when your mobile phone is recharging,” her sister wrote.

Miss Ma, who was due to marry in August, was said to have bought her iPhone 5 in December from an official store in her hometown in the Xinjiang province. Her brother told a Hong Kong newspaper the phone had been handed to Chinese authorities for examination. Miss Ma’s brother, Yuelun, told Apple Daily that the family believes she died from an electric shock while answering a call. In addition, to the phone the accessories and charging units have been handed over to Chinese authorities.

Apple, immediately replied advising they had launched a “thorough investigation” adding, “We are deeply saddened to learn of this tragic incident and offer our condolences to the family. We will fully investigate and co-operate with authorities in this matter.”

This warning also comes after Chinese man Wu Jiantong reportedly fell into a coma after suffering an electric shock as he plugged in his iPhone 4 to charge. He collapsed at around 10p.m. on Monday after connecting his iPhone 4 to a charger at home in Beijing. He owned the phone for two years.

“He shouted ‘electric shock’ and then fell to the floor,” Wu’s sister told the Xinhua news agency, adding that she felt a slight shock herself when she tried to unplug the faulty charger, which she said was not official Apple hardware.

An Apple spokesman said: “It was with great sadness we learned through press reports that a Beijing customer was injured while using a ‘knock off’ or counterfeit charger, and we are looking into this further. Our customer’s safety is very important to us, and we have carefully designed all Apple products to meet government safety standards. We recommend our customers only purchase Apple products from Apple or authorized Apple resellers.”

Make sure that your accessories are certified from Apple.  If you purchase a universal or generic charger, there is now the higher risk, of electric physical shock. It might just be good practice to turn your iPhone off during charging, and avoid making a call while it is do so. In addition, unplug the unit first from the wall and then remove the charging USB before powering on the iPhone.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!
