New skin for iPhone mocks Galaxy Note 7, but there’s a twist
The folks at Uniqfind think they’re really clever: apparently the all-new “Explo-sung” skin for iPhones, which adds a burn effect to your iOS device, is their “hottest skin yet.” But ironically, the latest device to explode isn’t the Note 7, it’s the iPhone 7.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know a thing or two about the late Galaxy Note 7, Samsung’s phablet that became a legend for all the wrong reasons. Some say it’s a shame, and some say it’s poetic justice. Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure: there have been a myriad of jokes surrounding the self-combusting phablet, and it’s getting old real fast.
Well, Uniqfind is just now jumping in on the troll wagon and seems to think that it might benefit financially from the Note 7 fiasco. Its all-new “Explo-sung” skin – probably the least creative name anyone could come up with – is according to the company, “a merciless way to dress-up your iPhone this Halloween.” As you can see from the photos above, it essentially makes your iPhone look like a burnt device. To be frank, I’m not entirely sure why anyone would spend $25 to put that over a nice, sleek iPhone device, but what do I know?
Ironically, however, the Galaxy Note 7 is not the latest device to explode. Just yesterday, a man’s brand new iPhone 7 reportedly burst into flames and destroyed his car in Australia. Mat Jones left his iOS device under his clothes inside his car during his surfing lesson. According to Jones, when he came back, his car was on fire, and thick smoke was coming out from his clothes, specifically his iPhone 7 underneath. Apple is said to be investigating the case, and although we will have to wait until the official verdict is out, it’d be tragically awkward for Uniqfind if the iPhone 7 turns out to be the reason for the fire.
