News Agency Reuters reports that after the French authorities and Senator Thun, a few representatives of the White House demanded an explanation from the head of Apple. This is due to the slowing down of the battery and incidents in the European Apple Store.
12 January 2018, four members of the Republican party, including the Chairman of the Committee on energy and Commerce, Greg Walden, sent Tim cook a letter. The exact text of the message is not disclosed. However, the press service of the Corporation said that government officials immediately demanded to explain the reasons for the slow iPhone with worn-out batteries and to comment on the explosion that occurred in Spain and Switzerland in January 2018.
In early January 2018, Apple received a similar letter from Senator John Thun. According to him, the Corporation must provide a thorough and detailed response to the 23 January 2018.
Apparently, the evacuation of the Swiss Apple Store and smoke in Spanish company store, has excited the authorities. However, experts believe that, most likely, Apple will not provide new information that differs from what was published in previous reports.
Despite the urgency of responses and the increased interest from the White House, in case the fault of the Corporation is proved, in the US, Apple has almost no danger. In contrast to France, where they can be prosecuted.
