Some iPhone 8 Batteries Reportedly Swelling

Display and Performance

Just a week ago, there were two complaints involving the iPhone 8 Plus. Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were built using water-resistant adhesive that is hard enough to remove, let alone arrive like that out of the box. One of the users has reported that he unboxed the device and left it plugged into the socket overnight until next morning when he saw his iPhone 8 Plus swelled up with screen popped out from the body.

Given that Apple has officially revealed that they will look into the matter of swollen batteries in the iPhone 8, we can expect the company to soon come up with a solution to the same. Batteries shouldn't be swelling in any number, and it's not clear what the half-dozen iPhones that are having this problem have in common.

Apple's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus went up for pre-order on September 15, and the phones started showing up on customers' doorsteps on September 22, just a week after preorders opened. Apple said that it would investigate the situation. Affected users hail from locations like Canada, Greece, Japan, and Taiwan, so this issue certainly isn't limited to just one region of the world.

The iPhone 8 Plus also includes Portrait Mode, a new photography feature that uses depth mapping to artificially add studio-style lighting effects to your snaps.

Apple will hope that the incidents are isolated, can be dealt with swiftly and are not a prelude to further problems.

There have been isolated issues with battery swelling before, with other manufacturers than Apple involved.

Yes. Except the fault a year ago was with the Samsung GaIaxy Note 7, which Samsung were forced to recall after several incidents of the battery catching fire while charging. Lithium-ion battery faults can be extremely unsafe, but it is likely that Apple will deal swiftly with the issues presented to prevent a similar scandal and protect users. Moreover, post Galaxy Note 7 episode, a lot of OEMs started emphasizing more on the battery safety such as LG with their cooling pipe technology inside the G6 and V30.

Jaffe suspects Apple's executives are "in crisis mode" over the potential damage that battery issues could lead to. A woman in Taiwan who used the device for five days before the device burst open was the first reported incident.
