Apple iPhone 6s catches on fire54
After suffering the burns, our reader was treated at the ER. Since the incident took place after the close of the business day, he contacted Apple the very next day. He is hoping that at the least, Apple replaces his phone.
Just the other day, an Apple iPhone 7 exploded, leaving the charred remains of Apple's latest 4.7-inch handset. This comes after a defective battery caused several Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phablets to catch on fire from the middle of August to the middle of September. Samsung eventually issued an official recall and has started an exchange program. However, a small number of the so-called "safe" Galaxy Note 7 units packed with a new battery have allegedly exploded as well, and we're sure that Sammy is taking a long hard look to see if these are legitimate claims.
If Apple issues a statement regarding the incident involving our new reader, we will be sure to pass it along. Unfortunately, the only picture of the burnt iPhone 6s happens to be one taken with a low resolution camera. You can check it out directly below.
Thanks for the tip!
