Something is Wrong With the iPhone 8 Plus Battery in Japan and Taiwan

Two cases of batteries swelling up have been reported by iPhone 8 Plus users in Japan and Taiwan. While it may sound alarming, fans shouldn’t worry as it’s reportedly nowhere near as dangerous as the infamous Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 battery explosions in 2016.

The first reported incident of the iPhone 8 Plus battery swelling occurred in Taichung, Taiwan when a woman bought a gold variant of the handset on Sept. 23. CnBeta reported that everything was going smoothly with the phablet — the term coined to describe a smartphone/tablet hybrid — as translated by Gizmo China.
