Apple iPhone 6s explodes after charging
As we told you the other day, Korean authorities are investigating this so-called #Batterygate issue due to the fear that it could be a safety concern. And while we have no idea whether there is a connection, one of our loyal readers sent us images tonight of his iPhone 6s after it exploded. Our reader told us that the phone was being charged when he unplugged the charger from the outlet. At that moment, smoke started spewing out of the device followed by the appearance of flames. He then dropped the handset onto the floor.
We have some pictures of the aftermath of the explosion and fire. You can check them out by clicking on the slideshow below. There is no word yet from the phone's owner on whether he plans on getting in touch with Apple, a lawyer, or both. He also didn't mention whether he sustained any injuries from the incident.
Thanks for sending this in!
