Everyone seemed to be riding the hype train of the iPhone 7, until this explosive news broke out!
Yep, according to news, iPhone 7 has had reports of exploding too.
This is in reference to the smartphone’s counterpart, the Samsung S7 Galaxy Note 7, which seemed to be doing it first.
The world’s leading smartphone makes just can’t seem to stop copying each other.
A Reddit user, kroopthesnoop, first posted a photo of a burnt iPhone 7 which seemed to be still in its case when it exploded.
In later updates, the Reddit user said that the reports have been made to Apple and AT&T, who promised a replacement and an investigation towards the incident.
But on the upside for Apple, this seemed to be an isolated case and is believed to have been caused by the pressure in its packaging while it was still airborne.
Judging from the pictures by the Reddit user, it seems that the package was severely damaged during the transport, as it had a hole in its box.
The phone itself had a large dent on its back, which indicates that the damage was caused by a physical blow. The burnt parts of the packaging does indicate that the battery did catch fire from the inside.
Details are scarce for the time being. “Something happened between the factory and delivery,” is all the phone’s owner had to say in his thread on Reddit. Apple hasn’t commented publicly and neither has UPS which was the carrier.
Netizens had their own theories as to how the smartphone exploded. One netizen said, “ im going to say that its not a case of iphone 7 exploding, but more a case of however it was freighted. or handled by customer caused the box and the iphone seven to be hit / bent, which damaged the internal battery. and we have all seen plenty of videos of what happens when you hit or stab a battery... boom.”
