    As the story goes, the problem with her iPhone first started when her device stopped switching on. After encountering with the issue she then took the iPhone 7 Plus, which she had bought in January, to a Sprint Store where the store's employees ran tests and concluded that everything was fine. The device seemed to work normally. However, the very next morning, her phone caught fire.

    In her own words, "The next morning I was asleep with my phone charging next to my head, my boyfriend grabbed the phone and put in on the dresser," she told Gizmodo. "He went to the restroom and from the corner of his eye, he saw my phone steaming and heard a squealing noise. By the time he got over to the phone it had already caught fire, he quickly grabbed the phone and threw it in the restroom, as soon as he threw it in the restroom, it blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone," she added.
