The user took to Twitter to report this scary incident to the company and its head Tim Cook and called for support. As per the tweet sent to the company and its chief, the Apple iPhone 6S Plus caught the fire at midnight.
His tweet reads, “@tim_cook My iPhone 6s plus Catch the Fire at Midnight But thank Fully it’s not Burnt in my Pocket. I Request to apply Brand Pls Do something!”
Other than this the user has also made a video and uploaded it to YouTube in which he has shown the burnt iPhone 6S. As we said before the owner was asleep when the iPhone burnt. Due to this the bedsheet, as well as the mattress, had also caught fire which was thankfully beaten out resulting in no serious injury. Till now the company has not commented on the incident.
This is not the first time such an incident happened. A similar incident was experienced when an iPhone 6 owned by an 11-year-old girl who is from California, USA suddenly caught fire and burned holes in her blanket. The girl used to watch YouTube videos and occasionally lets her younger siblings play games on it.
Another shocking incident took place when a user named Hillard saw smoke coming from his iPhone XS Max and also suddenly started feeling a “large amount of heat” clubbed with a burning sensation on his skin. He reportedly rushed and took off his pants where he had placed his iPhone XS Max and a fire extinguisher had to be used to put out the flames of the burning smartphone.
