Following the steps of arch-rival Samsung, an Apple iPhone 7 exploded while still in the package. A Reddit user “kroopthesnoop” posted a picture of the exploded iPhone 7 this week. Now, the iPhone 7 did not go off in glory like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, due to a battery effect, but while still in transit. When the user received the iPhone & he had ordered and took it out of the box, he found it in this condition. Though details are yet to be available on the same yet. The user said on Reddit that something went wrong with the phone between the factory and the delivery.
Apple is yet to make a public comment on the matter. It might have had something to do with the delivery system, but they haven’t responded either. Well, both the companies would have a lot of answers, once the buyer asks for a replacement. It seems that the world’s leading smartphone companies just can’t exist without copying each other. Samsung has time and again in the past been infamous for copying down Apple’s products, features and designs, technologies. Samsung was even sued by Apple for the same. Apple, too, would have never gone for iPhones with bigger displays, if Samsung hadn’t done so. In fact, Apple has introduced the same features Android phones have, years after they are actually launched. But copying exploding phones is a tad too much.
Earlier, Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7, which was launched a week before the Apple iPhone 7, started developing a battery issue and explosions started happening everywhere. So much so, that the company had to ask its users to return their phones to the company to get a replacement. Airport authorities and Airlines companies even asked passengers to not carry their Note 7s on board. Now, it must be noted that the Apple iPhone 7 explosion is an isolated incident and the exact causes are yet unknown. So, we would have to look out for other such incidents before deciding to cry foul at Apple.
