Video footage of an iPhone allegedly exploding in a young man’s pocket has been posted online. 17-year-old Henri Helminen is seen pulling out the violently smoking device from his pocket and throwing it on the floor, in security tape footage acquired by Finnish news site Kauppalehti.
“The phone was working perfectly” beforehand, Helminen told Kauppalehti. The unidentified iPhone model bought no more than three months ago was destroyed in the fiery incident, he added. Apple did not respond to request for comment on Wednesday.
