While most of us were bashing Samsung for the exploding Galaxy Note7 that caused so much inconvenience to its customers, it now turns out that Samsung isn’t the only one who is having a problem with batteries inside their devices but Apple as well.
The sight as seen above is a charred iPhone 7 owned by Mat Jones who happened to have left his iPhone 7 inside his car on along with his clothes while having a surfing lesson. When he went back to his car, he found the vehicle filled with smoke.Ash was just coming from inside the pants which then, once you unwrapped the pants, the phone was just melting inside of it – Mr. Jones when interviewed by 7News.
According to 7News, Apple is already aware about the incident and is conduction an investigation. Apple is yet to determine what caused the iPhone 7 to ignite which might lead to a defective iPhone or there might be an external factors behind.
The incident of an exploding or burning mobile phone devices isn’t new but recently it has gained quite a number which will put concerns on safety for users. We’re not only referring to Samsung latest Galaxy Note7 fiasco but even Apple iPhones and other OEM’s have the same scenario of their own where their devices would start to get burned on their own. It might also have something to do with OEM’s quality control or defects in manufacturing, design and assembly.
Answers would come out after the investigation regarding the matter but for now, it will be much safer to threat all electronic devices with caution as they contain specific components inside that could go ablaze in just about the least expected.
