SOLVED: The Mystery Of The Smoking iPhone

Smoke Stacks

Remember the story about the iPhone that began emitting smoke during a flight to Australia last November?

It turns out that it happened because the screen was replaced incorrectly by an unauthorised repair centre, reports ZDNet.

A loose screw was left inside the body of the phone that ended up puncturing the battery pack. The phone overheated and that’s when the smoke started pouring out.

Just a good reminder to get your products serviced at Apple Stores or other authorised repair centres.
