iPhone 6S over heating

A day without a smartphone explosion is a thing of past now. Every other day, we have some of the other smartphone exploding in the wild somewhere, causing injuries to the owner or the people around them. And today is not so different after all. We have yet another smartphone explosion story and just like yesterday, today also we are talking about an iPhone. Yes Apple, we’re looking at you.

In this case, the owner of the smartphone was out on a weekend with his friends, when all of a sudden his smartphone i.e. the iPhone 6s caught on fire. The smartphone was simply sitting in his back pocket and at that time, the handset went into spontaneous combustion. After the explosion, the smartphone was all black and melted and eventually left second-degree burns on the owner. The smartphone burnt a hole in is jeans and his left butt cheek and left index finger were injured.

The owner of the smartphone was quickly rushed and was treated at the ER. And the very next day, he contacted Apple regarding this incident and is now hoping to a get a response from them on this issue. According to the source, he is at least expecting the company to replace his smartphone. Well, as of now, we are not sure as to what Apple will do on this matter but we do hope that we get a response from them soon in the form of an official statement.

And if you think that this is the first time that an iPhone has exploded, then you were probably living under a rock all this while. Yesterday, a similar case was reported where an iPhone 6 Pluscaught on fire in the middle of the class. And not just that, a couple of days back we had reported about a similar story of an iPhone 7 also exploding even before taking the phone out of the box. And just to brush up your memory, an iPhone 6 exploded when was biker met with a small accident in Australia.

We have already seen a series of iPhone explosions ranging from the iPhone 6 to the new iPhone 7 as well. So now we are expecting the company to do something about it now. And as far as this new iPhone 6s catching on fire incident is concerned, it will first be investigated by the company before they come up with a conclusion. So as of now, we don’t have anything to report on this and we suggest you to stay tuned for more details on this matter as we will definitely update once we have more info.

Meanwhile, if you are using any iPhones, then it is advised that don’t use your smartphone to a point where it get extremely hot and you receive a temperature warning. And this is not just for the iPhone owners, but also for everyone. With all these explosions being reported now, it is difficult to predict which one will explode next and where. This is definitely a poor state that we now have to cautious while using a smartphone, but hey, prevention is always better than cure.

    Don’t buy iPhone and Samsung. Better to buy Chinese brand even if they caught fire we can say that it’s Chinese😂

  • Mostly Galaxy and iphone! Is it a conspiracy or the issue was already there, and its just coming to limelight after few incidents, one news led to another!

    ignoring Temperature warnings s dangerous…..

  • 2nd half of 2016 is coming out as a fiasco for the smartphone industry. Especially Tech giants Sammy and now it’s none other than Apple!
    Hopefully we see a new and better battery technology after all this..
