The incident took place in 2019 and Melbourne-based Robert De Rose claims that he has reported the issue to Apple but has received no response from the Cupertino-based giant. De Rose wanted to get compensated for the injury and the loss he faced due to the alleged burning of his iPhone.

“I heard a faint pop sound, followed by a fizz and then I felt intense pain on my right leg, so I immediately jumped up and realized it was my phone,” he was quoted as saying.
