As we feared, the iPhone 8 Plus, which exploded a week ago, was not the only one. Over the past two weeks, complaints about the inflation of the smartphone body have come from five countries: China, Canada, Hong Kong, Greece and Japan. Why is this happening and is it worth while to refrain from buying it?
Let's start with the unpleasant. According to unconfirmed information, the battery of the new iPhone is manufactured by Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), that is, the same company that produced batteries for the infamous Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Until you start to panic and run after the fire extinguisher, let's repeat: the information is unconfirmed.
There is hardly any doubt that the hull is swollen due to deformation of the battery. In this regard, it remains to answer two main questions: why this happens and whether the threat of a battery explosion is a mass character or limited to a defective batch of devices.
In Cupertino are still investigating incidents that have been publicized, but with the comments yet in no hurry. We, taking care of the welfare of our readers, can not but note: by buying the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, you do it at your own peril and risk.
