Brand New Apple iPhone 8 Bursts Open After Battery Swells While Charging

Apple iPhone X Samsung

There have been around five separate reports of iPhone 8 Plus screens becoming detached due to battery swelling according to The Guardian. The hope, of course, is that Apple finds this was limited to just a few defective handsets, and that it isn't something iPhone 8 users in general need to worry about. Apple's newest iPhone is also having an issues with overall quality, with many users reporting a crackling or static noise when making calls. The image shared by the publication shows an iPhone 8 Plus split open and its internal parts visible.

CNET, along with several other tech news sites also reported that multiple reports had come in about the issue. Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, Greece and finally event in Canada began to react to occurrence of different countries. As per the reports, the phone or the packaging had no signs of explosion or burn.

Apple seems to have an iPhone 8 battery problem on its hands, and it's not clear yet whether it's occurring in just a handful of edge cases or in a larger batch of phones. The company will be keen to avoid a repeat of the debacle surrounding Samsung's Galaxy Note8 handset which had to be scrapped previous year after the batteries in a small number of units exploded.

Ricardo Carvalho handed seven-month jail sentence
Former Chelsea and Real Madrid centre-back Ricardo Carvalho has been sentenced to seven months in prison, according to a report. Carvalho played for Real between 2010 and 2013 under Jose Mourinho, with the offences having taken place between 2011 and 2012.

"We are aware and looking into it", said an Apple spokesperson to this news organization.

China's state-media ThePaper.cn, reported that an iPhone buyer named Liu received his newly purchased iPhone 8 Plus split open on October 5. They haven't made it clear as to what might be causing the issue, but many users are speculating it could be due to the battery swelling. The most likely resolution is that Apple changes something silently on the supply chain side to stop new devices from being produced with this fault. Apple's shares on Friday afternoon fell 0.2 percent.

However, it is largely believed that the core Apple fans are anxiously waiting for the iPhone X, which will be out next month.
