The iPhone is now exploding too

The new iPhone 7 may have the same problems as the Samsung Note 7.

Apple is investigating a number of reports that iPhones have started to overheat, explode or catch fire, following issues with the lithium-ion battery inside the device.

A Reddit user called KroopTheSnoop shared images of a charred looking iPhone 7 Plus, which is the more expensive model with a a larger screen.

Apple has blamed “external factors” for a handful of iPhone battery fires.

While the problem does not seem to be widespread around the world, there is a growing number of people around the world complaining that their iPhone has exploded or caught fire.

Last month Apple agreed to replace batteries in iPhone 6 and 6S models after reports of sudden shutdowns  – even though batteries still had enough power. But Apple has maintained that the problem did not constitute a safety issue. Apple said the iPhones had external physical damage “which led to the thermal event”.

‘Safety first’

‘We treat safety as a top priority and have found no cause for concern with these products,’ the company added.

However, complaints against Apple have surged in the past two months according to the BBC.

Earlier this year an Australian man, Gareth Clear needed surgery after an iPhone exploded in his pocket while riding a bike.
