Apple and Samsung both are going through same trouble now.
Yes, you heard right, iPhone 7 got exploded inside the box. Apple is a trust worthy brand and no one expects such from them.
Let's check what exactly happened.
"Co-worker preordered the 7 Plus, was very excited and sent this in the team chat when it arrived. The phone wasn't used by my coworker as well." - a user posted on Reddit.
"An Account Exec from Apple's Texas offices just reached out to me (verified via LinkedIn), asking for information on this post. Ended up giving them coworker's contact information. Will update again when more happens." - User updated.
"UPDATE2: The Apple AE called coworker (about an hour later)! AE will work with AT&T to expedite a replacement phone. Don't know what the timeline for "expedited" is with AT&T, but I will update again when the new phone arrives."
Maybe it was a defective unit. Let's not blame Apple just for a single blast.
