The latest Apple iPhone has suffered a lot of controversy since its release. First, Apple faced the "Bendgate" scandal when owners revealed that their new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were bending in half inside their pockets.
Next, "Hairgate" surfaced when owners reported that a small gap between the iPhone 6 casing and the aluminum frame is literally catching hair and forcing users to pull on their hair and beard.
Now, a new report claims that an iPhone 6 caught fire in a man's jean pocket, causing serious second-degree burns to the owner's right leg.
According to reports, entrepreneur Phillip Lechter was visiting the University of Arizona in Tuscon with his family. During the trip, Lechter's iPhone 6 apparently bent in half inside his pocket and the iPhone 6 fire burned through his jean pocket, through his boxers, and significantly burned his leg.
In a desperate attempt to pull the phone out of his pocket, Lechter also burned his hip.
His right leg suffered second degree burns following the iPhone 6 fire inside his pocket.
