Following the issues of bendgate and hairgate, Apple’s iPhone 6 is now facing new challenged that emerged from unsatisfied customers. A man named Philip Lechter experienced a second-degree burn from his leg immediately after his iPhone 6 was bent and caught fire. According to the report, Philip Lechter, was riding a pedicab when unfortunately, the vehicle was involved in an -accident-. Instead of being ejected from the cab, the force of the accident slammed Lechter against the wall of the cabin he was riding in and causes fire of iPhone.
“The smoke was thick and I quickly laid down to get the Apple iPhone 6 out of my pocket. The smell was disturbing. I could feel my leg burning. I pulled the Apple iPhone 6 out of my pocket and threw it to the side.”
“The Doctor’s report described a 11.5 cm x 10.5 cm burn area on my right leg and classified the burn as 2nd degree with first degree burns surrounding the area.”
In Apple’s defense, no phone could probably have resisted the impact. Because the phone bent, its battery was punctured, and fire is usually what comes next when this happens.
