ABC News, citing a report from a Chinese news outlet, says 23-year-old Ma Ailun was electrocuted when she picked up the iPhone 5 to answer a call while the battery was charging.
Apple's Beijing-based spokesperson told ABC News the company was "deeply saddened" and will fully cooperate in the matter.
