iPhone 8 Plus pops open due to swelling battery: Report

By : |October 9, 2017 0

Apple’s latest smartphone has generated a lot of controversy due to multiple reports of batteries swelling in the iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which apparently broke them. The reports have spanned Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Canada and Greece, all displaying similar symptoms, making the notion that there was simply a single bad batch of devices coming off the production line less likely.

The first case was reported in Taiwan where a man found his iPhone 8 Plus swollen apart after plugging it in to charge. The man had purchased a 64GB Rose Gold iPhone 8 Plus and he put it in charge, using the supplied cable and adaptor. “After about three minutes, he reported seeing the front panel bulge, and eventually lift completely from the device”, as reported by ThePaper.cn.

Apple has responded to this problem by saying, ” We are aware and looking into it.” Some of the devices were reportedly collected by mobile phone operator partners for investigation.

The incident comes at a time when Apple is beginning its pre-orders for iPhone X from October 27. Some investors worry that these incidents would indirectly affect iPhone X sales, which is due out in early November.
