This Owner Claims Her iPhone Started Squealing …Then Exploded! [VIDEO]


This Owner Claims Her iPhone Started Squealing …Then Exploded! [VIDEO]

We’ve all gotten pretty used to hearing about Samsung’s exploding smartphones – over the last several months, but iPhones?

iClarified reports this evening that Brianna Olivas’ iPhone 7 Plus spontaneously ‘blew up,’ causing Apple to begin a full-scale investigation as to the potential cause of such an incident.

The following is taken from Olivas’ direct conversation with Mashable, the day after reportedly having her iPhone ‘okayed’ as safe by the Genius Bar:

“The next morning I was asleep with my phone charging next to my head, my boyfriend grabbed the phone and put it on the dresser,” […] “He went [to] the restroom … and from the corner of his eye he saw my phone steaming and [heard] a squealing noise.

By the time he got over to the phone it had already caught fire, he quickly grabbed the phone and threw it in the restroom … as soon as he threw it in the restroom [it] blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone.”

“The phone has since been turned over to Apple. They are conducting tests on the device and expect to know more within a week,” Mashable says.
