Apple branded charger for iPhone caught fire in the middle of the night right in bed

The following story happened with 17-year-old Amie Hall from Birmingham, England. The girl reported that her iPhone charger caught fire and set her blanket on fire.

The incident happened on the night of March 18, when Amy Hall was going to bed. She connected her iPhone to a charger, while the smartphone was lying next to the girl. Suddenly, she noticed a flame right on her blanket, while the girl received a burn on her cheek. The girl called her mother, with whom they put out the fire without calling the firefighters.

Amy Hall shared photos of her bedding and melted charging cable on Facebook, which once again demonstrate what the habit of leaving your smartphone next to your bed overnight can lead to. Modern smartphones and chargers are equipped with technologies to protect against power surges, overheating, and so on. However, not all manufacturers produce the same quality products.

The Birmingham Mail suggested that the girl was using a proprietary Apple charging cable and a different brand of power supply, but Amy Hall claims the opposite: “It was not some cheap charger, it was an Apple branded adapter. Please do not leave your phone charging overnight. “

Apple is currently investigating the cause of the fire. The company recommends that you do not charge iPhone in humid or poorly ventilated areas. This could cause the charger to overheat. The company also advised to regularly check accessories for damage.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
