Another swollen Apple iPhone 8 Plus battery discovered in China

A few reports suggested that iPhone 8 casing split opened due to swollen battery

There can be no iPhone launch without some controversy surrounding it.

At the end of last month, there were a few reports on social media about batteries swelling on the Apple iPhone 8 Plus. "A very small number" of iPhone 6S experienced unexpected shutdowns due to battery issues, Apple acknowledged past year.

An Apple spokesperson said the company is looking into the matter and declined to comment further.

There appear to be only six or so reports so far - certainly less than a dozen that have been publicly identified - so the issue seems to be quite small in comparison to the millions of phones that Apple has likely already sold. However, so far not many incidents have been heard of.

Earlier this week, we covered some rather alarming iPhone 8 reports.




Via ThePaper.cn, Liu reportedly took delivery of an iPhone 8 Plus on Thursday only to find that its case was split as soon as he opened up the packaging. They claim that they were using an official Apple power adapter and Lightning to USB cable to charge the phone when the battery began to expand.

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 were no signs of a fire or an explosion. Based on the images in circulation (via ), the front screen was bent, and the device was non-functional. Similarly, when the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus came out there were issues with individual devices. It must be noted that phones have minute tolerances, so even a minimal increase in the size of any component could render the device unusable.

But the spotlight has been shone on battery issues following the disastrous problems faced by Samsung with it's 2016 Galaxy Note 7.

In case you wondered, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are stuck together using water-resistant adhesive and getting that removed is a chore on its own.

The first of these issues was recorded in Taiwan by a woman who purchased a 64GB iPhone 8 Plus in rose gold shortly after the phone was released just one week ago. Investors are concerned that the pre-orders this time will be less than the previous iPhones.
