Apple investigates after an explosion on an iPhone 6 a little girl of 11 years

Apple is investigating why an iPhone 6 owned by a little girl of 11 years in California is “exploded” while he was being used to watch videos on YouTube, an accident that fortunately he has avoided serious injury to the little girl, or property damage.

Kayla Ramos was using his iPhone 6 in the bedroom of his sister when he started taking fire, and was holding the device in his hand when he started the process of combustion. After I saw “sparks flying everywhere” from the iPhone, Ramos threw on a blanket nearby.

Ramos told 23ABC that is slightly burnt, but the main damage is brought to the blanket and the bed, which now has burn marks and holes where it has landed the iPhone. The iPhone 6 is a partially disassembled, with the display panel, which is separated from the main body, showing a remarkable amount of burn marks on the inside of the device.

Apple has recommended it to Adata that there might be some factors that could cause overheating, such as the use of charging cables and chargers. These accessories could be the cause of some fires earlier, including an accident in British Columbia that has destroyed a farm in 2016.

Apple has also stated that repairs Apple unauthorized and external damage to an iPhone can also cause a failure of the battery. In these cases, the company strongly recommends customers to get in touch with their support team, an Apple Store or authorized service provider.

In the case of Ramos, Apple is investigating the cause of the damage, having already requested photographs of his mother, and is willing to send an iPhone replacement once that the corrupted version has been sent for the inspection.

The fire of the iPhone events are relatively rare, but occur because of the large number of smartphones sold in the world and the small risks linked to the use of lithium-ion batteries.

In November 2018, a iPhone X started to smoke and caught fire after an update to iOS 12.1 and loaded with the adapter for the Lightning cable and wall-official Apple, but it is not clear whether the software update has actually caused the damage. Another iPhone XS Max has caught fire in December of the same year overheating while was in the pocket of a man from Ohio.
