A resident of Fresno, California, Yvette Estrada filed a complaint with Apple due to the fact that its iPhone 6 Plus smartphone caught fire while charging. It is reported Abc30.

The smartphone was bought just three months ago. Estrada called the Apple hotline in the US the next day after the incident. Employees of the company asked her to send photos of the damaged smartphone and said that Apple will give the answer in two days. She also approached the local service center, where he promised to introduce a new instance of the smartphone.
“What if the smartphone was under my pillow or I’d be talking on it? I’d burnt my face,” she said in an interview. The accident damage was the nightstand, glasses and two coasters for the Apple Watch.

In the first case, the iPhone 6 Plus was back in the pants pocket of a College student in the Burlington County Darina Hlavaty.
