iPhone 6 Explodes In 11-Year-Old Girl's Hands



An 11-year-old California has claimed that her iPhone 6 device caught fire while holding it in her hands.

Kayla Ramos said she was holding the iPhone in her hands when she saw sparks and had to throw the device across the room which burned holes in her blanket.
According to 23ABC, Ramos said that she only used the device for watching YouTube videos alone, and once in a while let her younger sibling play games with it.

"I was sitting down, and i had my phone in my hand and then i saw sparks flying everywhere and i just threw it on a blanket,"Ramos said. "I was right here on the bed and the phone managed to burn through this blanket and make these holes," said Ramos.


Ramos mom, Maria Adata said that she reached out to Apple and was told to forward the phone and pictures to a service centre. Apple in turn, will provide the family with a new iPhone while it investigates the cause of the explosion.

"This could have been my child," said Adata. "My child could have been caught on fire and she could have been hurt more and I am glad she's OK."

Though Apple did not publicly comment on the issue, generally, Apple says that there are several things that may cause iPhones to go on fire. Such things includes the use of unauthorize charging cables and aftermath repairs.

There have been several reported cases of exploding iPhones in the past. In 2017, an iPhone 8 Plus device exploded while it was being charged. Last year, an iPhone 6S device exploded while it was being charged in a saloon.

Same last year, an iPhone X device exploded while it was being upgraded to iOS 12.1. Early in 2018, an Iphone battery exploded in the mouth of a Chinese man who bought the battery and then bite it to test if it was original or not.
