An iPhone has exploded on its way to its owner, despite of many problems afflicting Samsung’s new Note 7.
It appears from the pictures that the iPhone set on fire, exploded apart and burnt the packaging it comes in, which are spreading online. Many seems to fear the problems that hit the new Note 7 and it might affect Apple’s newest smartphone too.
A Reddit user “kroopthesnoop” had posted the pictures of the broken back iPhone 7 Plus.
The Reddit user said, “Something happened between the factory and delivery,” adding that the problem happened on its journey instead of exploding while using it.
The phone appears likely sustained some damage while it was being transported. Usually, the kind of battery used in the iPhone and other handsets are almost always safe, but seems to be incredibly dangerous, that if they’re being punctured, they can easily explode or set on fire.
The phone also appeared to be dented and damaged caused by heat. But those explosion with iPhone suggests that it was too far on the level of Note 7 explosion.
Apart from the kind of incident that Samsung Note 7 exploded mostly when the phone is on and charging, it appears that the iPhone 7 Plus is inside its packaging and about to arrive to its owner when it exploded.
There are no further problems reported that happened yet with the iPhone 7, but it appears that the problem is likely to be isolated.
