iPhone Melts In Sun, Says Customer
Some parts of the world are currently boiling.
Why, some smaller jets can't even land at or takeoff from Phoenix Airport because it's 120 degrees. In the UK, of course, a heatwave is anything over 70. Brits begin to burn at that temperature.
Still, it seems that one Apple customer didn't quite appreciate that her iPhone 6S might also be susceptible to a little sunstroke when it's 86 degrees outside.
As CornwallLive reports, an unnamed woman discovered this to her cost. Her phone repair specialist, Dave Tech Guy, told CornwallLive: "It was a girl who had been out walking, had stopped for lunch, and the phone was on the top of her bag." Where it reportedly sat for an hour.
Of course Dave Tech Guy isn't his real name. It's David Gilmore. He posted images of the iPhone to his Facebook page on Tuesday. They are, indeed, gruesome. "The sun was strong enough to heat up the screen so much it melted the screen connectors," he said on Facebook.
The consequences were painful. "It's the worst damage of this sort I've seen," Gilmore told CornwallLive. He said even the camera had melted. He believes the phone to be unsalvageable.
Neither Apple nor Gilmore immediately responded to requests for comment.
