Is all not well with the smartphone giant Apple and the quality of its products gone down after Steve Jobs left, as some users allegedly claimed? Well, while we can’t completely agree to that, it seems like the brand often finds itself in the controversies with something or the other. And here is another one yet again. An iPhone X user in the US recently reported a phone exploding case on social media and the alleged incident has woken up the conscience of the users yet again.
An iPhone X user, named Rocky Mohamadali, has reported that his phone got hot and exploded while in the process of upgrading to 12.1 iOS. He also shared the images of the exploded unit on his Twitter handle.
The user has reportedly claimed that he was charging the phone when the alleged incident happened. It is said that he even confirmed that he was using the original charger to charge the phone.
It seems he bought the phone in January and it showed no problem all this while. However, he said that just after the iOS 12.1 was successfully installed, it started emitting smoke and then exploded.
The user took to Twitter and posted the images of the exploded iPhone X unit with the cracked glass and burn marks clearly visible. This is what he wrote and posted:

However, after this alleged incident was posted on social media, many ‘frustrated’ users, taking the opportunity, reacted to it, but it was not what we expect. Sad for the smartphone maker! Well, let’s take a look at some of the users’ reactions below:
Apple down after Steve Jobs no more?
Whatever happening to Apple after Steve Jobs, is also not expected by us customers. Money mincing Apple policies, cheating and no ethics. Tell me one Apple model device which has not suffered after Mr. Steve Jobs left. My iPhone 4 is still way better than my iPhone 6 Plus.

Waiting for my phone to explode too!
@Apple similar is happening with my iphone x but a step below ie., instead of exploading it is showing warning of over heating.
Sent in service centre but rejected (i guess it is a feature in ₹89k PREMIUM SMARTPHONE) and now even i should be waiting for my phone to explode too. pic.twitter.com/GfgwmMFoBZ

Is it so, Apple will find a way to blame it on the user?
Don’t you worry Apple will find a way to blame it on the user.

Meanwhile, it is said that the user has given this information to Apple and the company is investigating the matter. Needless to mention, iOS 12.1 has earlier been in controversies for security issues.
