So this kids iphone explodes during class... a video would of been kind of cool but still super scary since like 99% of the population carries a phone in their pocket and can't live without one. I think even a 1/1000000000 chance of something thats in my pocket exploding is way too high.

I've actually been waiting for something like this to happen, not necessarily an explosion, but for smoke to come out of a phone. I've witnessed a lot of my personal electronic devices overheat. There seems to be a problem with the phone not having a ventilation system. I think how computers have ventilation fans, it may be a good idea for engineers to add one to devices or at least open holes where heat can be transferred out/ released.

Thanks for adding the article link!

After reading the article, I am kind of shocked about an iPhone exploding. Honestly, I don't think I have ever heard of a thing like that happening to apple products. It is dangerous to have this happening because it can leave anyone with injuries if they are near the device. After reading this article, I will start taking my precautions because it can happen to anyone.

Hey Saim, I have an iPhone 6s and ever since the update it has been heating up like crazy. My battery life doesn't last and I could literally only unlock it and spend 2 min to check my messages and it heats up to the point it burns to hold it. After hearing about this I'm scared my phone will explode. I never thought an iPhone would explode like the Galaxy Note 7’s have been.
