It seems that the fire of electronic products is always happening.

According to media reports, last year, Michael Macaluso's iPad caught fire and set the house on fire. The latest news is that the lawsuit was handed over to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, general court this month and again to the Eastern District federal court this week.

It is reported that,Allstate, an insurance company, paid as much as 142000 US dollars (928000 yuan) in fire damage compensation to Macaluso. Allstate hired De Luca Levine to claim compensation from apple in order to smooth out the insurance.

According to the plaintiff, Michael Macaluso did not modify, abuse or operate the iPad beyond Apple's expectations, which was due to the quality of the iPad itself.

In fact, this is not the first time Apple has encountered a product fire lawsuit in the United States. In 2019, Julia Ireland MEO, a New Jersey resident, sued apple, claiming that her father died in an apartment fire in February 2017 due to an iPad battery accident. The case is still under trial.

Earlier, in 2017, Wei resident Xai Tao and the insurance company sued apple for a fire caused by a defective iPhone 4S battery, but the case eventually reached a private settlement.
