At the end of a flight from Lismore to Sydney in Australia, this phone started emitting “a significant amount of black smoke, accompanied by a red glow.”A flight attendant extinguished the smoke and collected the phone for analysis.
The burn mark is apparently right over the battery in the iPhone 4, so something probably caused the battery to overheat.
Nobody was hurt.
