A three-week-old iPhone XS Max reportedly caught fire and exploded while in the pocket of a man on December 12. A man named Josh Hillard, said that he was at lunch at 3:00 p.m. when he noticed a smell and felt a “large amount of heat” and then green and yellow smoke coming from his iPhone XS Max.
Hillard told the website that he spent 20 minutes answering all the questions of the Apple Store and suggested to talk to the Apple care. After calling Apple care, he was asked to share the pictures of the damage to the phone, clothes, and injury if there is any.
After getting the pictures, Apple offered him a new iPhone XS Max. However, Hillard does not accept this offer. He is also seeking resituation for the clothes and shoes ruined in the incident.
The last time an exploding iPhone made headlines was back in November. An iPhone X device exploded instantly after being upgraded to the latest iOS 12.1 software update at the time.
