Last year, an Australian fix shop owner said an iPhone exploded in a customer's hand, reported The Telegraph. It sparked while he was working to replace a broken screen caused by heat damage. The close call happened at a cell phone fix shop in Las Vegas.

It is always suggested that phone is not exposed to direct sunlight or high temperatures for long time.Moreover, wireless chargers used overnight can also heat up the device.

Tartaglio also recommends people use replacement batteries directly from the phone's manufacturer saying they are often more reliable than aftermarket batteries and typically aren't any more expensive. The vast majority (if not all) of phones depend upon lithium-ion batteries, which tend to be unsafe if they're either damaged or defective.
