WINDSOR TERRACE, Brooklyn –
The iPhone X could be the "most popular" phone, but it has nothing on this iPhone 6.
Speaking exclusively for Eyewitness News, Abd Ghaith says he was sending a message from text friend when suddenly it exploded in his hands.
"I got a message, I answered the message, I put the phone in the charger and then, while holding the phone, it started like a little smoke coming from the left side of the phone, and then when I pulled out the case to see what it was exactly the phone, it just blew up, "Ghaith said.
It happened on Friday morning at his grocery store in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn.
suddenly says that the screen went black, and then it got so hot that it says it singed his thumb.
He says the phone was so hot that it burned a mark on the floor after he dropped it.
Ghaith says the phone was smoking for 20 more minutes.
He says that the only thing he is looking for is a replacement phone, at no cost.  "My biggest concern is that I'm happy it was a text message and not a call, because if I told it to my ear and it happened, I probably would have burned my face," Ghaith said.
In a statement, an Apple spokesperson said: "Apple takes customer service and security very seriously, we will badyze the device."
