More cases of defective batteries in the iPhone 8

Not good times for the iPhone 8 . In addition to being born in the shadow of the iPhone X and noise problems during calls and FaceTime (Apple has recently solved the update iOS 11.0.2 ) join certain problems of batteries that swell and end up destroying the terminal . They started being two isolated cases, but the days pass and the number of affected devices grows. Will we face a debacle of the Note 7 style?

At the moment, few users have reported this problem, but more and more are sharing photos of their device open because of a battery failure . The first cases occurred in Taiwan and Japan, but now Anthony Wu, a reader of Macrumors of Canada, tells a similar case.

Apparently, he bought a new iPhone 8 Plus, opened it and the next day had to return it because " the screen was gone ." The damage would be due to the deformation of the battery inside the device, which when ignited, pressed the rest of components and the display just came out of the housing.

And it is not the only, from Greece, specifically the iRepair store, specializing in repairs of iPhone, iPad, and Mac, comes the fourth case. As in the previous ones, he took it out of the box, loaded it and by the time the device was already open. Of course, in this case the user used a non-original charger .

When the hare jumped, an Apple spokesman said the company was aware and was analyzing the matter , but for the moment has not spoken in any way.

Of course, with millions of iPhone 8 in the lines of sales and millions of lithium batteries inside, this can happen at some point . But in less than a month since its release there are at least 4 reported cases scares a little.

To give us an idea, in the case of Galaxy Note 7 there were hundreds of complaints until Samsung decided to discontinue its device, in addition some of them set on fire, causing a significant risk to the health of its users.

For now, we are waiting for more cases (hopefully not) and a solution from Apple.
