She has handed over the phone to Apple and the company is investigating the issue. She also confirmed that she has been using the Apple’s original charger to charge the phone since she bought the phone. So, it ruled out the possibility that a non-original product might be the reason behind this explosion.
This is not the first incident when an iPhone caught fire, but this recalls Samsung Galaxy Note 7 incident.
