A series of stories about exploding smartphones are unlikely to run out in the near future. At this time it again is not about the South Korean handsets, and the iPhone 7, or rather on its older brother the iPhone 7 Plus.
At the end of last year, one of the buyers of the iPhone 7 in the US said that the device exploded during a delivery, then came the information that the unit caught fire in the process. Later, the Aussie said about burning in the iPhone 7.
Another case of spontaneous combustion iPhone 7 Plus happened in Tucson, Arizona, USA. The owner of the device brianna Olivas told that the phone suddenly began to vibrate and smoke. It happened on 23 February, without any influence from her. After the spectacular “dance of death” iPhone 7 Plus self-destructed, which was accompanied by the separation of the display from the housing. Pictures and video clearly shows that the mobile device is not repairable.

An Apple spokesperson said in comments to Mashable, which is investigating the incident. Previously, Olivas spoke to the representatives of the service center of the company due to the fact that its staff is periodically refused to turn on. After studying gadget they found no defects and returned the iPhone to the mistress.
Now Apple is conducting tests to determine the source of the problem.
