    As all we know, Samsung SDI is responsible for Note 7's battery problem. Samsung is recalling Note 7 that use Samsung SDI's battery.

    After digging Apple'a supplier list from Apple'a own website, Samsung SDI is in the list.

    This proves that Apple is using Samsung SDI's battery, at least for products produced in 2016.

    If Samsung is recalling Note 7 using Samsung SDI's problematic battery and recalling it. Apple should do the same.

    This proves that Samsung is more responsible than Apple.

    It's only a specific batch that had an issue, but Samsung issued a full global recall on a device that had only just launched.

    Apple don't need to do anything.

    Apple uses ATL... Which is who Samsung switched to.

    There is chance that Apple used the problematic batch. If Apple uses Samsung SDI's battery and their battery have problem Apple need to recall as well.

    Samsung uses golbal recall, not specific batch Note 7. If the problem is only specific batch, Samsung does not need to recalling every Note 7

    People always trying to create an issue out of a nonissue.

    According to which source was Samsung SDI the problematic battery supplier for the Note 7? Who confirmed this?

    The supplier list clearly shows Samsung SDI, stop denying.

    Apple is using Samsung SDI's problematic battery and Apple does not want to recall.

    I'm sorry, but your image proves nothing. Perhaps you ought to look up "proves" for future reference.

    Even if they're made by the same company they're its a different battery made to a different specification.

    Apple using Samsung SDI's battery. And we know Samsung SDI's battery has explosion issue with Note 7. Therefore, it is reasonable to suspect that same thing could happen to Apple's products.

    If Apple is responsible, Apple should come up with a statement and recall products using google Samsung SDI's battery

    That is a 2015 list... Where is his list for the iPhone 7 he is claiming?

    The batteries from the galaxy note 7 do not fit into an iphone.

    Also, with that logic, Samsung would have to recall all their phones, not just the Note 7.

    What a load of hyperbole. Sheesh. Did every battery have an issue? How do you make the leap to that far-fetched conclusion?

    Good point, and to continue with this convoluted logic, by the same standard Samsung should be recalling every phone that uses those batteries and since they didn't they are even more irresponsible than Apple, since they sell way more phones and have more marketshare.:cool::confused:

    You don't understand anything about supply chains do you?

    Do you really think that because the manufacturer is the same, that Apple's different capacity, shape, and form batteries in iPhones is from the same assembly line as the one's in the Samsung 7?

    Really?

    "Could"? Yeah, but highly unlikely.

    We have no idea what they are using Samsung SDI batteries for, it could be for the Apple TV Remote for all we know, it could be the BIOS chip battery on Macs.

    The issue with Samsung SDI resulted from a manufacturing tolerance defect that could have affected ALL Samsung SDI batteries built using that spec. "That spec" involves the dimensions, materials, mah etc that the battery was built to, which would NOT be the same as the iPhone uses.

    That being said, I can guarantee that Apple has gone through and vigorously examined all devices that could possibly have that battery inside of it as well as the manufacturing processes.
