Splitgate: iPhone 8 battery swelling problems reported in five more countries
After first being reported in Taiwan and Japan, the iPhone 8’s battery swelling problems don’t seem to be going away with five more countries, China, Canada, Greece, Hong Kong, and most recently the United States, all reporting similar incidents.
The problem seems to affect both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, with the device’s battery swelling up so much it will actually push the display outwards and separate it from the case. To date, no fire or explosion incidents have been reported so far for either device.
It’s unclear at this time what’s causing these iPhone 8 batteries to swell up, but according to a statement from Apple to Macrumors, Apple is reportedly investigating the issue. “We are aware and are looking into it,” Apple’s statement reads.
