Buyers concerned over swollen batteries in new Apple iPhone 8

Buyers concerned over swollen batteries in new Apple iPhone 8

Now, the same is happening with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, with one more incident being reported where a new iPhone is found to be split open from the sides, exposing the machinery inside. Apple spokesperson told that they are looking into the matter and will soon issue a statement.

The incident led Samsung and others to double down on battery safety and testing, with some winding back on more less proven developments and decreasing battery energy capacity to focus on proven technology and avoid a similar billion-pound catastrophe.

The Guardian reported on Thursday that at least five reports had come in so far from multiple countries around the world, including Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Canada and Greece. No accounts of iPhone 8 explosions or fires have been reported so far. Since the phones have only been on sale for a few weeks, it's early in the life of the device.

The front screen piece is clearly bent, leaving the device in a non-functional state with the internal components partly exposed. Liu bought the device from JD.com which means Apple itself will not help him out (according to the paper). So, Apple will not directly help the iPhone owner.

As there appears to be no possibility for personal injury, there is unlikely to be a recall as in the Galaxy Note situation. Apple's shares on Friday afternoon fell 0.2 percent.

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. On top of that, the iPhone 8 was already at something of a disadvantage as millions of consumers are undoubtedly waiting for the iPhone X to launch.
