Es soll ja nicht allzu oft vorkommen, aber wenn ein iPhone explodiert zeigt sich, dass echte Wertarbeit auch mit beängstigender Wirkung explodiert.

So passiert Anfang des Monats, als ein Schüler Verbrennungen zweiten Grades durch ein brennendes und explodierendes iPhone 5c davon trug.

Nun wurde neun weitere Bilder, diesmal eine iPhone 5s mit dem selben Problem veröffentlicht.

Zwar erwecken diese neuen Bilder schwer den Verdacht, dass hier bewusst ein iPhone 5s zum Überhitzen gebracht wurde. Dennoch zeigen sie eindrucksvoll, wie ein kollabierendes iPhone in Aktion aussieht.

Damit wir all das auch glauben, hat der Besitzer des iPhones übrigens auch eine Erklärung abgegeben, aus der sich jeder selbst einen Reim machen darf.

„1: The battery was starting to “inflate”, it pushed the TOP part of the screen up enough that I was able to grab ahold of it and rip it off from the bottom UP, of course the phone was getting hot at this point because of a malfunction in the battery so I pulled the screen off with quite a good amount of force. Doing so the screws just ripped out of the threads (they are small screws keep in mind..).

2: As for this, keep in mind, the venting was not some sort of 30 second thing. This went on for about 3 minutes, my home filled with smoke. I work on computers, I did have a phillips screw driver that I was able to take the EMI shields off while it was smoking, because it was too hot to move, So I was trying to disconnect the battery to remove to get it outside (later thinking I realized how this would have done nothing at that point). That is why there is no shielding or cables.

3: As for everyone wondering WHY I had a camera, well. I don’t use this iPhone as my Phone, I have a Moto X that I use for my main phone. I use the iPhone for everything else other then texting and calling, So I had my Moto X with me. My first instinct after seeing other iPhones batteries have malfunctions lately was to get a picture for proof.

ALL the other pictures AFTER the smoke I took for Apple as they requested. I have a Table and a counter near each other (kitchen).

I hope this answers everyones questions.. I realize the skepticism, I would too, but I can assure you, all this was pure instinct, the phone WAS NOT open, had no damage, and RIGHT before the accident was actually IN USE (on Facebook).“
