IPhone 8 Plus devices allegedly split open while charging #splitgate

Стали известны новые случаи вздутия iPhone 8

At the end of last month, there were a few reports on social media about batteries swelling on the Apple iPhone 8 Plus.

It has been the largest elephant in the room for Apple aficionados, but on Friday, it finally was acknowledged: Apple's new iPhone 8 may be having problems with its battery. In 2016, Samsung had to recall all of its Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones owing to an issue in battery which caused the phone to catch fire.

The reports have spanned Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Canada and Greece, all displaying similar symptoms, making the notion that there was simply a single bad batch of devices coming off the production line less likely.

In the aftermath, Stokes and Hales were left out of the fourth ODI, but Stokes was still named in the original Ashes squad . Australian legend Shane Warne on Friday said it's not just the tourists who will be missing out if Stokes does not travel.

The issue shouldn't be directly compared to what transpired with the Galaxy Note7 past year as the iPhone 8's don't appear to be exploding, just cracking open due to a swollen battery. Photos of the said iPhone 8 Plus were displayed on ThePaper's website, showing how the phone split open and how some parts were visible. Apple assured the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus owners that there is no need to worry and the bursting open issue might not be unsafe to use since there is no signs of fire or explosions.

And when Antenna issue occurred in iPhone 4, in which signal strength of the phone went low while holding it, Apple responded by saying that either grip it differently or buy one of the available cases.

Apple, at first, took its traditional approach of looking down its nose at the complaints and refused to say anything.

Apple unveiled its latest-gen iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (first impressions) at an event in last month.

Shares in Apple edged down 0.2% to 155 on the stock market today. 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 Tame Apple Press is trying to reassure them that Apple fans are waiting for the premium iPhone X due out in early November.
