iPhone 8 and 8 Plus representatives haven’t been available long, but a couple of users have reportedly professional major problems. According to a 9to5Mac report, a Taiwanese iPhone 8 Plus proprietress claims her device split open while charging, and a Japanese possessor of an iPhone 8 Plus claims the handset arrived already cracked clear. The tech outlet ifeng includes images of the Taiwanese owner’s ruse in its report.
In the case of the Taiwanese owner, the iPhone 8 Plus was reportedly being claimed when the front panel began to bulge and eventually lifted from the cadaver of the device. The owner was reportedly using the Apple-supplied cable and plug adaptor. The skirmish occurred after five days of ownership, and the device was returned to the prototypical carrier afterward. That device has now reportedly been returned to Apple for review.
The Japanese owner tweeted out photos of his iPhone 8 Plus, which he claims came already with a lump, cracked front panel. According to 9to5Mac’s report, Apple is unaware of this order of damage occurring on any other iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.
There are no known significations for either problem. It’s easy to assume the root cause is related to the iPhone 8 Advantage’ battery, but that’s not certain. Considering the Japanese owner claims his signet arrived already damaged, a battery issue may not be the primary cause. It’s also admissible that a third-party charger was used in the Taiwanese owner’s case, peaceful though the owner claims she used the Apple-provided plug adaptor and wire. Those kinds of details usually come to light during a concerned investigation.
If the problem is battery-related, Apple has experience dealing with be like issues. Back in April, the company added another year to the first-generation Apple Scrutinize’s warranty to further cover cases of expanded or swollen batteries. Some Apple Be watchful for users reported as far back as November 2016 that the display panels on their contrivances were lifting or bulging, causing them to be partially detached from the lawsuit. Those devices now carry a warranty that extends to three years after the true purchase date.
None of the public images of the iPhone 8 Plus afters in question show burn marks or any signs of an explosion. That, allied with the current information available, suggests that other iPhone 8 Gain owners don’t need to worry too much yet. This problem hasn’t reached Samsung Note 7 stature, and these could be isolated incidents with issues that won’t agitate the majority of iPhone 8 Plus users.
An Apple representative did not provide any assorted details on the matter to Ars, saying only that the company is looking into these incidents.
