An Apple device might be at fault for the EgyptAir Flight 804 crash that took place in 2016, with French officials now investigating whether an iPhone or an iPad caused a fire due to overheating.

French newspaper Le Parisien reports that French investigators believe an Apple device might have been plugged in while flying, eventually suffering from overheating and leading to an explosion on board. The investigation involves an analysis of an iPhone 6s and an iPad Mini 4, which were brought in the pilot cabin by the flight’s first officer.

An expert from the French National Center for Scientific Research, together with a duo of engineers working as part of France’s Ministry of Defense, have already started the investigation to determine whether the Apple devices were indeed the ones that brought the aircraft down or not.

The EgyptAir Airbus A320 was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19, 2016, when it crashed in the Mediterranean Sea, with a total of 66 passengers and crew losing their lives. Fifteen French citizens were on board.
