Apple iPhone 4 Catches Fire, Literally

Apple‘s iPhone has burned a customer, literally.

A reader told tech site CrunchGear that he had a pretty big surprise when his iPhone burst into flames at his home.

The phone got hot then started smoking then blew up,” the man wrote.  My wife and kid were in the room and it set off my fire alarm. It slightly burned my hand when I tried to pick it up.  Basically the battery caught on fire.”

In a pretty amusing video with appropriate music in the background from the Boss,” the man reenacts what happened to his iPhone.

Apparently, he went back to an Apple store in Charlotte, N.C., for a replacement.

We hope his next battery doesnt get so hot.
