IPhone explodes in Las Vegas fix shop

Surveillance video shows a phone exploding on a desk just from an employee working to replace the screen inside a Las Vegas phone store.                      KTNV

However, just recently an iPhone 6 has caught fire, this time in the US, and the explosion happened to get caught on surveillance video. In the video from Friday, an employee was working to replace a broken screen on the phone when the iPhone suddenly exploded on the desk.

KTNV reported that the whole ordeal lasted 20 seconds, before the flames fizzled out when there was nothing of the phone left to burn.

The store is not being identified.

Some scary moments were caught on camera inside a Las Vegas fix shop.


The owner of another store told KTVN that it's possible an overheated battery can expand and eventually blow up inside a phone, but 'it takes a lot'.

The biggest issue he sees the temperatures rise into the triple digits in Las Vegas are the cracked screens from warped batteries. This was a huge problem years back when several major computer makers had batteries that were exploding and causing fires.

Tartaglio also recommends people use replacement batteries directly from the phone's manufacturer, saying they are often more reliable than aftermarket batteries and typically aren't any more expensive. Keeping the phone from getting too hot can extend the battery life.
