NEW YORK –
The iPhone X could be the "most popular" phone, but it has nothing on this iPhone 6.
Speaking exclusively to ABC's sister station WABC-TV, Abd Ghaith said that He was sending a text message to a friend when his phone suddenly 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 out from the left side of the phone, and then, when I pulled out the case to see what it was, the phone literally exploded, "said Ghaith.
It happened on Friday morning at his grocery store in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. .
He said that suddenly the screen went black, and then it got so hot, he said, that he singed his thumb.
He added that the phone was so hot that it burned a mark on the floor after he dropped it.
Ghaith said the phone was smoking for 20 more minutes.
All you are looking for now 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 in my ear and it happened, I probably would have burned my face," Ghaith said.
In a statement, an Apple spokesman said: "Apple takes customer service and its security very seriously, we will badyze the device."
