Man claims his iPhone XS Max caught fire in his trousers

Burned iPhone XS Max

Following the smoke, he rushed to the boardroom, removed his shoes and trousers, and to his surprise, the iPhone XS Max had caught fire. Analyst William Yang of Citi Research added that Apple will be slashing the production of its iPhone XS Max to 45 million. Clearly something unfortunate happened, and according to the phone's owner, it happened rather abruptly while he was at work.

Sadly for Hillard, it seems that the end of the drama did not end with an on-fire iPhone XS Max, smoke inhalation, and damaged pants as a visit to the Apple Store only compounded his dissatisfaction with the entire situation. When he felt a strong heat burning his skin, he saw green and yellow coloured smoke coming from his back pocket.

"Left no other option, I had to exit the room since there was a female in the break room with me and remove my trousers". He says one of his bosses heard him yelling and helped extinguish the fire.

iDrop News reported that the incident took place on December 12 near Columbus, Ohio.

Apple will reportedly be using new camera features like these to draw their audience to the 2019 model, likely to be released in September - which will be hard considering the already quickly growing anticipation for the 2020 generation.

All things considered, Hillard is said to be "contemplating legal action" for the physical and psychological trauma suffered as a direct outcome of the explosion, especially after talking to several customer service and safety department specialists, both in person and by phone. "The manager then came up to me and said that this is the only way that I could receive a replacement phone", Hillard says.

"The specialist got information on the phone, incident, location, etc". I essentially started the entire process over again.

iDrop News claims that Hillard is planning to launch legal action against Apple. "I stated that I would send pictures of the damaged phone and clothes, but that even if there had been a visible injury I would not be comfortable sending pictures of such sensitive regions of my body". Josh is now seeing compensation for his damaged clothes, shoes and wireless service which he was unable to use during his time negotiating with Apple.
