iPhone 7 fire reports: Apple Doubles down to verifying facts

With exploding phones already proving to be a hot potato for Samsung, Apple cannot afford to take any such report lightly.

A week ahead of the launch of new MacOS-powered computers, Apple is investigating a claim that its latest device iPhone 7 overheated, caught fire and reportedly destroyed a car in Australia.

The incident comes at a time when South Korean giant Samsung is recuperating from the aftermath of the premium Galaxy Note 7 device failure, which has been in news for catching fire.

According to a widely carried report, an Australian man Mat Jones left his iPhone 7 in his car while he was at a surfing lesson. When Jones returned, he saw his vehicle filled with smoke and burned up in the same area where he had placed his iPhone 7.

Jones said his iPhone 7 was to blame and he shared images showing the molten remains of his Apple smartphone. His pants, in which he had wrapped the iPhone 7 before heading to his lesson, were on fire when he got to his car, a report by Australia’s 7 News noted.

Meanwhile, an Apple spokesperson said the company is in contact with Jones and investigating the matter, Fortune reported.
