Apple Is Investigating Battery Swelling in iPhone 8 Plus

  • iPhone 8 Plus: Apple looking into reports of batteries bursting out of smartphones

So far, the cases that have come to light demonstrate similar characteristics; the screen of the phone split away from the device's aluminum body.

Though millions of phones manufactured will have some form of defect in them which is why Apple offers stellar after-sales service of its products, identical issues point out that either a specific component or manufacturing defect could be occurring where consumers are met with crippled phones. There was another case in Greece. So far, cnet has rounded up 6 reports of the issue. The stock had been up five out of the last eight trading days before reports over a battery issue resurfaced. 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.

Some buyers who felt misled sued the Trump Organization and others involved in the project in NY federal court in 2010. Vance said his campaign accepted the donation because Kasowitz no longer had any cases pending before the office.

Apple has a short statement on the matter: "We are aware and looking into it". It's also still unclear whether this will cause a domino-effect where phones will have to be recalled or not. In past when reports of iPhone6 Plus bending emerged, Apple diplomatically said, "With normal use, a bend in iPhone is extremely rare and through our first six days of sale, a total of nine customers have contacted Apple with a bent iPhone 6 Plus".

While swelling batteries is not almost as bad as the cells catching fire, the chemistry of modern lithium-ion batteries and the amount of energy they can store makes them risky with any kind of fault.

On July 11, Dileep was expelled from the primary membership of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) after being arrested. Meanwhile, his fans had arranged a huge welcome for the actor both in front of the jail and outside his house.

Wall Street barely blinked at Apple's battery issues. But while we've seen a few swollen batteries already, he says, it doesn't mean the problem will necessarily elevate into a Note 7-style crisis with phones starting to produce smoke.

KitGuru Says: Battery swelling isn't almost as bad as them spontaneously lighting up and burning.

Tesla Misses Model 3 Production Goal Over 'Bottleneck'
Yet the bad news overshadows all this. "We believe Q3 will be the most challenging part of the Model 3 production ramp", he wrote. The automaker built only 260 Model 3s during the quarter ended in September, less than a fifth of its 1,500-unit forecast.

However, it's also true that everyone in the industry is more attuned to such problems in the wake of the exploding Galaxy Note 7 situation.
