Apple might be pulling a Samsung. This Wednesday, an Arizona-based teenager shared a distressing video that shows her iPhone 7 Plus excessively release fumes after spontaneously heating up to the point of melting.
The footage reveals a gaping hole on the side of the handset as the screen has almost fully melted away from the aluminium frame anchoring. The post, shared on Twitter by Brianna Olivas, has since gone viral, accumulating over one million views and 24,000 retweets. Now Apple has taken notice.
In a brief statement to Mashable, the Cupertino titan said the company is “in touch with the customer and looking into” the malfunction.
