Apple is investigating claims that a US woman’s iPhone 7 plus exploded and caught fire. Brianna Olivas from Tucson, Arizona has uploaded a video on twitter on February 23. The video showed that the phone emitting smoke and can be seen got damaged.
She had noticed a problem with the phone bought in January.
“It wouldn’t turn on so I took it into a store,” she said.
“They were able to get the phone on and ran diagnostics. They said nothing was wrong with it and everything was fine.”
But the next morning she woke to discover her phone on fire.
“I sleep with my phone next to me. It was on the bed right next to my head. My boyfriend actually moved the phone to the dresser and went into the bathroom,” she said.
“From the corner of his eye he saw the phone smoking and heard a squealing noise coming from it. I woke up because I heard the noise and then he started raising his voice.”
Brianna’s boyfriend grabbed the phone and moved it into the bathroom.
“Right when he put it there, it blew up and even more smoke was coming out,” she said. “The phone smelt so bad. I can’t really explain the smell but it was really strong. It made the whole apartment smell.”
Now apple is looking into the issue why this happened. Apple has already replaced both the iPhone and the case that were damaged.
Here is the video she posted on Twitter
