An 11-year-old girl from California claims her iPhone 6 was recently burned. Kayla Ramos says she held her iPhone in hand when she saw sparks and threw the device over the room.

As described by 23ABC, Ramos said the iPhone 6 burned holes in a blanket once she threw it. She added that she usually only uses the device to watch YouTube videos:
"I sat down and I had the phone in my hand, and then I saw sparks flying everywhere, and I threw it on a blanket," said Ramos. "I was here on the bed, and the phone was able to burn through this carpet and make these holes," Ramos said.
Ramos says she used the iPhone 6 to watch YouTube videos and sometimes her younger siblings play games with it.
Kayla's mother, Maria Adata, said she traveled to Apple and was asked to send the phone to a service center. Apple will also give the family family a new phone and investigate the cause of the explosion. Apple itself has not publicly commented on the situation, though.
Generally, Apple says there are several things that can cause iPhones to take fire, including using unauthorized charging cables and aftermarket repairs. In Ramo's case, however, the family tells that there are none of those that apply to their iPhone 6.
This is not the first time we've seen an iPhone burning. In some cases, the fire was caused by overheating because it was placed under a pillow. Two years ago, a virus video on Twitter claimed to show an iPhone 7 Plus capture fire. In December, an Ohio man said his iPhone XS Max was burning and exploding in his pocket.
Details of Ramos & # 39; case remains unclear, but we want to be sure to upgrade if Apple publishes comments on the cause of the explosion. 19659005]
