Apple looking into video of exploding iPhone 7 Plus

Apple is aware of a video posted on Twitter that shows a rose gold iPhone 7 Plus emitting smoke.

Twitter user Brianna Olivas said the day before the incident occurred her phone would not turn on, so she took it to the Apple store for investigation. The staff ran tests on the device and said everything was fine when the phone started working normally again.

The next day she was asleep with the phone charging next to her head, and her boyfriend grabbed the phone and put it on the dresser. He went to the restroom and saw the phone steaming and making a squealing noise. The phone caught fire by the time he reached it, and he threw it in the restroom where it blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone.

The phone was bought from Sprint in January, and had a liquid-filled case on it, which may be a contributor to the issue, but yet to be confirmed. Apple now has the phone and the company said “We are in touch with the customer and looking into it.”

Nokia E1 passes certification

A new Nokia phone, known as TA-1000 has passed the China Compulsory Certification. In a listing from HMD Global, the device comes with 5V/2A charging support, which means the device will most likely not feature fast charging.

This handset will most likely be the Nokia E1, which may come with an entry-level Snapdragon chipset, 1GB of RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat.

More details is to be expected soon.
