Apple reports iPhone 8 battery issue


Monday, October 09, 2017

An Apple spokesperson has reportedly confirmed that the company is aware of the issue and is working for a solution.

There were reports about the Apple’s latest iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are swelling up due to faulty batteries. There have been at least six cases from Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Although six isn’t a huge number, but it still alarms serious concerns considering what happened to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 last year.

According to MacRumors, an Apple spokesperson has reportedly confirmed that the company is aware of the issue and is working for a solution. However, they are yet to identify the actual cause of the issue.

Recently, there were reports of an iPhone 8 Plus bursting open. Pictures on the social media platform showed the iPhone 8 Plus model that appeared to have split along the edge.

According to Taiwanese media, the owner claimed that the device cracked open while charging. The phone was in use for just five days and charged using the original cable and power adapter.

Another customer from Japan claimed that their iPhone 8 Plus was delivered with screen already partially detached. The customer took to twitter to post the images of the damaged phone. Apple confirmed that it is looking into the matter, but is yet to identify the fault.

The iPhone X is just around the corner and if there battery incidents keep popping up, it might affect the upcoming smartphone’s sales. However, Apple is known for solving issues quickly, hope they fix this one as well.
