The video shows smoke pouring out of one side of the iPhone and the case melting away.
Apparently, the phone developed a fault — it wouldn’t turn on— but she visited the Apple store to get it fixed. According to her, the Sprint employee said her phone “looked weird when it turned on,” but they ran some tests and told her everything was fine.
The next morning she discovered it wasn’t.
Meanwhile, Apple has replaced her phone and are currently running tests to figure out what went wrong.
