Numerous IPhone 7 and IPhone 7 Plus devices now exploding
Cupertino, Calif. — The now-deceased Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is not the only new phone exploding and catching fire nowadays.
Numerous reports around the world are coming in about Apple’s new devices, the IPhone 7 and IPhone 7 Plus, exploding and catching fire.
A prominent example of these devices, already widely panned due to the omission of the headphone jack, exploding comes from the land down under.
Move over Samsung’s bursting devices, as an Australian surfer has claimed that an exploding iPhone 7 has destroyed his car while he was out in the water, and released a video footage for the same. The surfer, Mat Jones told news outlets that he went to the water after keeping his smartphone wrapped in his clothes inside the car. When he returned he saw his vehicle damaged because of the fire caused by the burning iPhone 7. He told local news station (7 News) that when he came back his car windows were all black and saw ash coming out of his clothes. When unwrapped, he saw the iPhone was melting inside. There has been no other proof yet, apart from the video footage Jones came out with, nor has there been any confirmation.
This adds to the many other claims of exploding iPhone 7s. Last month, another person from Australia had reportedly burnt his legs when his iPhone 7 burst in his back pocket when he fell down from his mountain bike. Overcharging and puncturing the device are the main reasons generally that these devices catch fire. Apple has reportedly said that it is aware of the incident and is investigating the issue.
We think it is time for Apple to stop all shipments of the IPhone 7 and IPhone 7 Plus now before someone gets seriously injured or killed.
And as for the consumers out there: Get the Lumia 950 XL, the Acer Liquid Jade Primo or the HP Elite x3 if you need a high end device that does not explode. If you need an IPhone that does not explode, get the IPhone 6s Plus or the IPhone SE.
