I am so excited, it has been a while since I wrote about a smartphone blowing up and now it is not even a Samsung! Christmas came early this year. Today’s victim of a lack of absolute, impossible to reach precision of fabrication is one Rocky Mohamadali from state of Washington, U.S. Mister Mohamadali has decided to update his iPhone X to OS version 12.1. He begun the process, plugged the device into the charger and got very surprised when the phone begun to very quickly overheat. Soon smoke begun to erupt from beneath the phone’s frame, and since where there is smoke, there is fire the device soon blew up and erupted into flames. End result of the whole affair can be seen on the picture above.
Mr. Mohamadali has supposedly been using the original, Apple-made cable and charger. He believes that the update has been almost complete by the time the smartphone blew up. Quickly unplugging it from the charger did not, sadly, help. The unlucky Rocky has already contacted Apple, which will investigate the situation. We will let you know if any more info is revealed.
