Three-week-old iPhone XS Max Exploded In Man’s Pocket

Burned iPhone XS Max

A man from Columbus, Ohio has reported that his three-week-old iPhone XS Max caught fire in his pocket while inside a case - causing smoke, the burning of his skin, and a dead iPhone that Apple has since offered to replace. Clearly something unfortunate happened, and according to the phone's owner, it happened rather abruptly while he was at work.

At this point, Hillard made the decision to exit the lunch room and remove his trousers.

According to the iDrop News report, Hillard said that he wants more than just a new iPhone, including new clothing and shoes to replace what had been damaged. "A VP of our company put the fire out with a fire extinguisher because he heard me yelling".

Apple will reportedly be using new camera features like these to draw their audience to the 2019 model, likely to be released in September - which will be hard considering the already quickly growing anticipation for the 2020 generation.

The ordeal left Hillard with a hole in his trousers, fire extinguisher residue on his clothing, as well as "some pain/irritation in my buttocks region", he said.

Citi Research on Friday slashed its first-quarter production estimates for Apple's iPhones and almost halved expectations on the costliest iPhone XS Max, joining other brokerages in lowering forecast amid reports of weak demand. Once in the Apple Store, I went to the back and asked for a manager. "I left one hour before the store closed and unsatisfied with the customer service in store, I took back the damaged phone and returned home", he further said. The phone was barely a month old, so the incident can not be blamed on battery abuse. "I stated that I would send pictures of the damaged phone and clothes, but that even if there had been a visible injury I would not be comfortable sending pictures of such sensitive regions of my body". In the meantime, Hillard tells iDropNews that he may take legal action in the near future. Josh is now seeing compensation for his damaged clothes, shoes and wireless service which he was unable to use during his time negotiating with Apple.
