IPhone 8 Plus's battery is leaking, he's blowing up his safe!

Стали известны новые случаи вздутия iPhone 8 Week received five such incidents

Apple is facing the prospect of an iPhone 8 sales meltdown following reports that some units in the Far East have popped open due to the battery swelling. He said he did not charge the new device and returned it to the seller.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus went on sale on 22 September.

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.

A similar case in Japan was reported previously, when the owner of the iPhone 8 Plus posted photos on Twitter of his defective phone shortly after unboxed the package.

Although details remain murky, it does not appear that any of these devices are delivered in a risky condition (it's not like the battery is about to combust) but it does cause inconvenience and create some bad PR for Apple.

While reports of swelling batteries is a serious concern, there have been no reports of any of them catching fire.

Costa Rica-Honduras postponed due to Tropical Storm Nate
Bryan Ruiz flicked the ball ahead to Rodney Wallace who, marked by Bryan Acosta and Emilio Izaguirre, played it back to Ruiz. The Hondurans now face the prospect of not even making the final-spot playoff, which goes to the fourth-place team.

The muted response to iPhone 8 and 8 Plus launches led some commenters to suggest the phones have sold poorly and that poor reviews are to blame.

An Apple spokesperson said the company was now looking into the issue, but the company has not elaborated further at the time of writing.

According to reports, the £800 ($800) iPhone burst after the customer, known as Ms Wu, had charged it using an officially supplied charging cable. However, so far not many incidents have been heard of.

The front screen piece is clearly bent, leaving the device in a non-functional state with the internal components partly exposed.

Well, we are clear enough that this iPhone 8 swollen battery issue should not be directly compared to that of the Galaxy Note 7 battery explosion. Nevertheless, considering Apple's scale, even a minute failure rate will affect quite a few users. Apple shares have also been down since the launch of the handsets. Take it to your nearest Apple Store where they can properly dispose of it.

Apple is scheduled to release the iPhone X - with the "X" signifying the Roman numeral 10 - on November 3, with preorders starting on October 27.
