#iPhone7#GalaxyNote7 – iPhone 7 Exploding Too Just Like The Galaxy Note 7 : If Apple fans had been laughing at the misfortune of Galaxy Note 7 owners due to some of the handsets exploding, they’ve now stopped. We’ve just heard the first report of an iPhone 7 exploding.
iPhone 7 exploding?
To start with, let’s rule out the battery, as I don’t think this is a repeat of what happened with the Note 7. If the current reports about the iPhone 7 exploding are accurate, it has only happened to one user before he had even used it. So the difference here is no one knows why an iPhone 7 would blow up, but there have been multiple instances of the Note 7 exploding.
It’s clear that a defect caused the problem in this particular case. When and where the issue occurred during the manufacturing process is something Apple will have to find out.
What if there’s more than one?
If there continue to be reports of the iPhone 7 exploding, the situation could soon get out of hand for Apple. The problem of the exploding Note 7 has caused it to be banned from flying by many government agencies around the world. Samsung has recalled many devices with the defective battery that was found to be the cause of the problem. However, so far the South Korean company is said to have only collected 60% of the affected devices.
So if there are further reports of the iPhone 7 exploding, you can bet that there would be a mass recall. Right now there are not a lot of details emerging about the incident. However, can see from the image above that the iPhone has been destroyed. Its owner certainly won’t be testing out the camera and A10 Fusion chip’s capabilities anytime soon.
What I can say, however, is that the owner was not harmed in any way by the faulty device. In fact, neither was its box. Apparently it was relatively unscathed, which is quite strange considering that the iPhone 7 is believed to have been inside it when the explosion occurred. That’s what the owner of the handset is saying anyway.
