Apple investigating reports of iPhone 8 Plus battery swelling

Share

For the past few weeks, about six photos and videos of swollen iPhone 8 and 8 Plus phones - some of which were split in the backside, exposing internal parts - have been shared widely on social media.

There can be no iPhone launch without some controversy surrounding it. Swelling of the battery is being blamed for the issue.

"After about three minutes, she reported seeing the front panel bulge, and eventually lift completely from the device", media reports said.

Over the past few days, there have been multiple reports claiming that some iPhone 8 units have split apart either on arrival or after several days of use.

Winx looked comfortable as the field went through the first half of the race, even though she was eight lengths from the leaders. When asked after the race if there was a Flemington test, Bowman remarked: "Was there a test?" "She's a brilliant horse ".

Accordingly, Liu approached the paper on the same day to show his iPhone 8 Plus that just arrived with cracks on the side. Similar incidents have also been reported in Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and Greece.

An Apple spokesperson said the company is looking into the matter and declined to comment further. There were no signs of a fire or an explosion.

According to reports, the £800 ($800) iPhone burst after the customer, known as Ms Wu, had charged it using an officially supplied charging cable. Apple was yet to release figures for the early sales of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The swelling of the cell inside affected handsets creates enough pressure to cause the screen to pop out. "In the Galaxy Note case, there were probably a couple hundred battery failures of one sort or another, but there were only a handful of fires - so that gives you a sense of the proportion of actual fires".

Such incidents will surely downplay the popularity of Apple's latest flagship, which is already being reported to have a comparatively slower start.

However others claim that the rise of online pre-orders and Apple's new appointment-based pickup system are to blame as a trip to the high street is less likely or is staggered.

As always, take these "disasters" in the context of Apple's scale.

Apple is scheduled to release the iPhone X - with the "X" signifying the Roman numeral 10 - on November 3, with preorders starting on October 27. Year to date, the stock is up over 34%, while in the last one-month, it is down over 4%.
