Multiple Apple iPhone 8 Plus Batteries Reportedly Swollen; Apple Looking into the Issue

Late last month, few reports from Chinese media claimed the battery swelling on the latest Apple iPhone 8 Plus. However, it is now reported that a total six cases are reported on the same battery swelling issue. Customers of Apple iPhone 8 Plus across Japan, Canada, China, and Taiwan have reported this issue.


Apple officially confirmed that it’s looking into the issue and will probably come up with a solution and the issue caused the swelling in the next week or so. But before that, this issue is concerning several users across the country, especially they’re calling the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.

That said, the batteries might have swollen due to some defects, but this doesn’t mean that every battery is defective. A report by iRepair revealed that the issue happened even with Apple’s official charger and lightning cable. A user put his Apple iPhone 8 Plus into charge overnight, only to see the swollen battery early in the morning.

Another interesting thing is that some users never charged their smartphone, and some users received the device with a swollen battery. Having said that, this surely cannot be fixed with a software update. As said earlier, Apple is already looking into the issue, and the company will investigate the issue at the earliest. After the investigation, the company might halt the production and make the necessary changes for preventing the issue.

Exactly a year ago, Samsung was in the news for the same reason of battery explosion of its flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7. However, the iPhone 8 Plus issue is not as serious as the Note 7, but it’s bothering the users of the smartphone. Battery explosions have become a common affair in the smartphone industry, especially the use of lithium-ion batteries.

It’s interesting to see what Apple comes up with about the issue.

Note 7 had non-samsung batteries n still exploded. Also its d responsibility of Apple to check phones properly before launch. Everyone iPhone has one or the other but fans give a blind eye since they have paid a bomb. 4S had network issues if u hold d phone, 5 had heating issues, 6 had the infamous bendgate issue.
