Now iPhone 7 is catching fire: the second incident reported
It started from the Samsung’s exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphone that forced the giant South Korean company to recall the handset just weeks after it went on sale, we’re all more aware than ever that smartphone batteries can explode.

There are plenty of reasons why it happens. In the case of the Galaxy Note 7, a manufacturing flaw was responsible. Battery age and physical damage can also result in batteries blowing up and phones catching fire.

Few days back one of the iPhone 7 owners had claimed that he received the burnt iPhone 7. Image 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.

In the recent incident, a reader told Phone Arena that he was out with some friends when all of a sudden his iPhone 6s caught on fire. The phone was sitting in his back pocket, burned through his jeans and caused second-degree burns on the left side of his body and on his left index finger.

The person was treated in the emergency room, according to his claims. The iPhone apparently exploded after business hours, so he contacted Apple about it the next day. He is hoping that Apple replaces his phone, Phone Arena says.

Burnt iPhone

The above image was shared by the Phone Arena, which shows the burnt iPhone. The iPhone appears to be torn apart, but that’s about everything one can say about it since it’s completely unclear from the photo what happened to the phone. It’s also unclear what caused the explosion at this time. An investigation will surely follow, as Apple will want to know why the phone allegedly exploded.
