The day before Olivas experienced problems with the phone that is not started. She took it to an Apple store, which did not find anything wrong with it, and after it worked normally.
We can imagine that there are many companies in the industry who are terrified of a Note 7- nightmare will also befall them, but there is no evidence that this is a widespread battery problems of the iPhone, as it was with Note 7 batteries. It has long been known that batteries can be dangerous if, for example, been damaged, but it is not yet known what happened to this iPhone.
Apple has indicated to Olivas they are investigating the phone, and will know more "within a week ".
