Hell it's even easier to remove TWS earbuds from its charging pod to choke on. Now techs are so small, anything can be a swallowed.

They are the same as android fanboys.. critique everything even if it makes no sense... So long as it has to do with Apple.. they will pounce on it hungrily with blood shot eyes.. and lousy jokes.

Basically, the warnings are for the parents to keep them away from their children. But I'm not going to go into a rant on stupid parenting.

Another rushed launch, another Apple Gate. #chokegate
