SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Apple's iPhone is the world's hottest smartphone -- and one iPhone in Australia appears to be the hottest of the bunch as it spontaneously began smoking last week.
Regional Australian airline Regional Express described the "mobile phone self combustion" in a statement, saying an iPhone belonging to a passenger started glowing red and expelling a "significant amount of dense smoke" after a flight from Lismore, Australia, landed in Sydney on Friday.
A photo accompanying the statement showed the shattered, warped back of a recent-model black iPhone.
The airline says a flight attendant extinguished the glow and nobody on the plane was hurt. Regional Express reported the incident to authorities in Australia. Apple says it will cooperate with any investigation.
