11-year-old girl claims her iPhone 6 exploded

Maria Adata, Kayla's mother, called Apple Support the following day, and was instructed to send photos of the destroyed iPhone 6 and to mail it in. "I was right here on the bed and the phone managed to burn through this blanket and make these holes".

"This could have been my child".

Apple is reported to be ceasing sales of the iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus in India.

"This could have been my child", said Adata.

Apple generally points out that the usage of any unauthorised Apple product, like charging cables, could be a primary cause of such accidents.

If the iPhone gets too hot or is exposed to direct heat or sunlight for long, there can be damage to the battery, thus potentially increasing risk for fire.

An 11-year-old girl has claimed that an iPhone exploded in her hands. The entry-level iPhones include the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models.

The iPhone 6 then caught fire and burnt holes in the blanket upon which it fell.

In December a year ago, a three-week-old iPhone XS Max smartphone reportedly caught fire in the rear pocket of man from Ohio, United States. The iPhone 6S is now selling for at least $393 and the 6S Plus is discontinued, encouraging people who want a bigger display to go for the more expensive iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone SE is now, not available on Flipkart, Amazon but on the other hand, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models are still in stock.

"Cupertino does not want Apple India to chase volumes by discounting at the cost of profit", said a leading trade partner of Apple. It is believed that phasing out these four iPhone models would hike the average selling price of the smartphones in the country, thereby increasing both revenue and profit. This is after the existing stock of iPhones is over.
