An iPhone 4 burns in flight

An iPhone too hot. That's what caused a small incident in Express regional flight ZL319 linking Lismore to Sydney , when suddenly the device began to burn. According to witnesses, was found "a significant amount of dense smoke, accompanied by a red light."

It was during the course of landing when the problem occurred. According to the company, the rapid action of the crew solved the mishap and allowed the successful completion of the flight. After landing, the iPhone was released to officials of the Office of Transport Security in Australia. There is still no official explanation about the cause of the burning of the phone. It was an iPhone 4, and not the iPhone 4S , the latest model of the company.

Although extremely rare, prior cases have been reported in small combustion devices, especially in lithium ion batteries from overheating.

Apple has warned in its first generation iPod Nano sold between September 2005 and December 2006 the danger of overheating the battery, which the company's Web site described as "security risk".
