Apple iPhone 4 catches fire
Apple's latest iPhone 4 caught fire while being attached to a computer through the Apple USB cable. Quite dangerously, the phone's user suffered minor burn injuries on hand.
As if poor reception signals weren't enough to spoil the iPhone 4 party, the iPhone 4 got burned and even melted USB cable.
Reports says that a customer had brought the phone to the store for repair, but the device was in the shape of beyond repair.
A local Apple store clarified that the cause behind fire was a defective USB port. The edge of the device had got unmanageably hot. Apple told the store that it seems the fault is with defective USB port, and not due to any design flaw.
Following complaints, Apple recently admitted that iPhone 4 has been facing poor signal strength and poor reception problems.
