Now iPhone 7 is catching fire

Now iPhone 7 is catching fire
Two of the world most popular Smartphone brands are copying to each other at all the levels from the bad too good. While the company has certainly improved its image over the past few years, Samsung is likely most famous for being an Apple copycat. After all, the company was sued repeatedly by Apple for stealing its technology and designs. And as we all learned, things got so crazy at one point that Samsung even created a 132-page internal document to help its engineers copy the iPhone pixel by pixel. Of course, Apple is hardly innocent in all this. The iPhone maker has aped plenty of features from Android in recent years, and it probably never would have made iPhones with large displays if Samsung hadn’t paved the way.

So if you are Apple fanboy you must have liked the above paragraph, isn’t it? So let’s talk now another way, in the recent development Apple has just copied the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in its new iPhone 7, Confused? Yes, like Note 7 iPhone 7 has started catching fire. It seems both the companies are giving a tough fight to each other ;). Jocks apart, in the recent news, iPhone 7 caught fire, as reported by one of the device consumers.

The image above was posted by Reddit user “kroopthesnoop” on Wednesday, and it shows a matte black iPhone 7 Plus that certainly looks like it exploded. Unlike Samsung’s somewhat widespread Galaxy Note 7 problem that was due to a battery defect, however, this iPhone exploded while in transit, according to the phone’s owner. When he received the iPhone he ordered and took it out of the box, this is what he found.

Details are scarce for the time being. “Something happened between the factory and delivery,” is all the phone’s owner had to say in his thread on Reddit. Apple hasn’t commented publicly and neither has UPS, but one or both companies will likely have to investigate the matter when the phone’s owner contacts Apple for a replacement.  

The Tame Apple Press has written the story off as a freak accident with some trying to make a rather weak gag that Apple was copying Samsung. This is the same Tame Apple Press which claimed that the Samsung Note 7 only caught fire because it was rushed into production to beat the iPhone 7 to the shops.

Our guess is that this story will continue to be ignored, although it would be a big dose of karma if Apple suffers from the same problem that the Samsung faced and more iPhone 7's go pop.
