This iPhone got so hot, that it actually just completely burst into flames. According to BGR, the phone “lit up” after being connected to the owner’s computer via the 30-pin iPhone cable. The device became hot enough to actually burst into fire at the bottom of the phone and just about melted the plastic on the connector. The report also claims that it was “clearly a defective USB port”.
Let’s just be glad it’s not a multitasking issue!
