Apple is investigating after reports of handsets 'bursting' open

SHARE:

Following a shaky release day the iPhone 8 may be set to suffer further setbacks, after reports emerged of the device 'bursting' open.Pictures on Chinese website Ifeng claim to show a Tawainese customers rose gold handset, which has split along the top and sides

The £800 ($800) iPhone 8 Plus may have a battery issue, if two reports of 'bursting' phones are to be believed.

Two customers in Asia have claimed the model's Plus sized handset split at the seams after it had been charged.

It is not yet known whether these are isolated incidents or part of a wider problem but Apple is said to be looking into the issue.


Pictures on Chinese website Ifeng claim to show a Tawainese customers rose gold handset, which has split along the top and sides.

According to reports, the £800 ($800) iPhone burst after she had charged it using an officially supplied charging cable.

Another user in Japan shared images to Twitter claiming to show the screen separating from the body of his device.

In both cases, there does not appear to be any visible signs of overheating or exploding.

Gases inside the phones may have leaked or expanded, causing the 'bursting' effect.

Apple is reported to be aware of the claims and investigating them further.

Many reports of this nature do turn out to be fake, upon further investigation.

Slight variations in production may account for a handful of manufacturing defects, and this is common to most new devices.

This may account for the two isolated cases that have been reported so far.

However the Cupertino-based firm may have a bigger problem on its hands if further reports begin to emerge.

Apple's early iPhone launches saw snaking queues of fans outside its stores, with many camping overnight to get their hands on the firm's latest devices.

But the iPhone 8 launches at stores across the globe on September 22 were a far cry from the hysteria on display seven years ago

There were just modest queues of iPhone fans photographed outside Apple's flagship stores in London, Sydney, Amsterdam, and Shanghai.

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.

However others claim that the rise of online pre-orders and Apple's new appointment-based pickup system are to blame as a trip to the high street is less likely or is staggered.

Many also believe the imminent release of Apple's flagship £999 ($999) iPhone X, overshadowed the launch with die-hard fans choosing to wait until it is available.
