When an iPhone overheated in an Apple store overnight, injuring an Apple employee, an immediate evacuation of more than 50 people staff and consumers had to be initiated according to Swiss police said.

"According to Zurich City police, the device suddenly exploded for an unknown reason as it was being removed by a fix worker on Tuesday, burning his hand slightly".

The news comes days after Apple confessed to have deliberately throttled CPU performance in older iPhones to extend battery life.

Around 50 customers and employees were evacuated from the store, Reuters reported, as fire crews and police arrived at the scene.

"At the same time, there was a build-up of smoke, resulting in customers and employees having to leave the business temporarily", a police statement said.

Seven people whom were present received medical treatment but did not need to be taken to the hospital.

The device exploded abruptly when the repairman was examining the device, without any particular reason, said the Zurich police official. It then began emitting smoke, prompting the staff to throw quartz sand on it to contain the smoke and allow it to be ventilated.

Neither Apple nor the Zurich police immediately responded to CNET's request for comment.
