Apple is looking into multiple reports of batteries swelling within new iPhone 8 Plus smartphones, which apparently broke them open as a result.
At least five separate reports of the new 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus smartphones have shown deformed phones, swelled batteries and screens being detached from the aluminium bodies of the devices.
It’s happened to me. Not with an iPhone I hasten to add, I’ve not spent the price of one of those on my entire lifelong (erm, decade long) phone ownership. But an old Sony that’s exactly what did happen. Battery swelled up and cracked apart the phone.
