Another IPhone Explodes, The iPhone4 belonging to Mr Mota was charging beside his bed as he slept when it short circuited and started to burn just 15cm from his head at eye-level.

Mr Mota described seeing ‘a lot of sparks and black smoke’ from the battery area.

His bedroom filled with an ‘unbearable’ smell, he said, as he swiftly unplugged the iPhone, opened windows and turned on a fan to get rid of the smoke.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is investigating the previous incident on a flight to Sydney in which another iPhone4 blew up.

Domestic airline Regional Express Airlines said the device glowed red and gave off ‘thick smoke’ after the plane landed.

‘We do have the phone. It is in our custody and we will be undertaking a technical examination of it,’ commented a spokesperson for the aviation watchdog.

‘We will be interviewing directly involved parties and also in our technical examination of the phone we are going to be consulting with the manufacturer as well.’
