Previously, reports of a Reddit user receiving a damaged iPhone 7 surfaced online. The device apparently exploded before it got delivered to the customer. This incident seems to have occurred again.
According to reports by the local media, an iPhone 6 Plus burst during class while it was in the back pocket of Darin Hlavaty, a student at Rowan College in Burlington County, New Jersey.
â€˜I felt this crazy, hot burning in my leg. Right as class was starting, my phone started smoking in my pocket. It was a fire,â€™ said Hlavaty. â€˜It was super hot so I flinched, grabbed it, threw it on the ground. Had to kick it because it was on fire,â€™ he added.
The fire emergency team arrived at the college but by that time, the fire was already out.
