Apple is looking into reports of iPhone 8 batteries swelling

Apple seems to have a hard time with battery burst open issues now.

It's important to note that the iPhone 8 Plus' battery is made by Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), which is he same company which manufactured the batteries for Samsung's exploding Galaxy Note 7. The person did post in the thread that Apple replaced the device, however, so the incident sounds similar to numerous other reports.

The incident comes after similar reports have also been reported in Japan and Taiwan, and one Apple spokesperson stressed that they are looking looking into the issue without elaborating further. The user claimed to be charging the phone using only an official Apple power adapter and Lightning to USB cable.

According to a report by the Original Daily News (via MacRumors), an iPhone buyer named Liu said that his newly bought iPhone 8 plus arrived cracked open yesterday. There have been no signs of fire or explosions on the iPhone 8 as reported on some media channels.

Reports of iPhone 8 batteries expanding during shipment, breaking the handset apart, could turn into a serious problem for Apple, says Sam Jaffe, managing director and founder of energy storage specialists Cairn ERA. Based on the images in circulation (via ), the front screen was bent, and the device was non-functional. "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".

Apple has taken the bursted iPhones 8 in for study. Apple shares have also been down since the launch of the handsets.

The first new case was from Canada, when a customer returned his new iPhone 8 Plus the following day after its display popped out. The Tame Apple Press is trying to reassure them that Apple fans are waiting for the premium iPhone X due out in early November.

This year's iPhone 8 is nearly identical to the last year's iPhone 7 in terms of dimensions but the changes are evident at the back of the phone.
