According to gadget 360 report, A Reddit user earlier this week reported a case of an allegedly exploded iPhone 7 Plus. Posting details for a co-worker, the user said the iPhone had exploded in transit, and that it was in that condition when received. If that is indeed the case, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 users across the world may just be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief.
Unlike the case of the exploding Galaxy Note 7, the iPhone 7 Plus in this case did not explode when it was connected to a charger (or even turned on). It seems most likely the explosion was due to some form of transportation mishap, affecting the battery within.
The Reddit user also added: “The executive is said to have promised that Apple would work with carrier AT&T to expedite a replacement phone.”
