Users Beware! Apple’s iPhone 8 Is Suffering Some Battery Issues That See The Screens Splitting From Its Frame

Apple is investigating reports of iPhone 8 Plus handsets bursting open while charging, suggesting a possible battery issue.

Two iPhone 8 Plus owners – one in Taiwan and one in Japan – have shared pictures their devices on social media, showing the screen splitting away from the body of the phone.

The Taiwanese customer told Chinese media sites her iPhone burst open despite being charged with an official Apple power adapter. The handset has been returned to Apple for investigation.

Apple confirmed that it is aware of the issue and is looking into it.

While Samsung was forced to recall its Galaxy Note 7 last year, due to multiple reports of handsets overheating and exploding, there is no reason to panic about the iPhone 8 Plus just yet.

Millions of iPhones come off of Apple’s production lines every year, and it is common for a few to have battery failures.

However, it is only a week since the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus went on sale, so if reports of battery issues start to multiply, Apple could have a serious problem on its hands.
