iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models haven’t been available long, but a couple of users have reportedly experienced major problems.
According to a 9to5Mac report, a Taiwanese iPhone 8 Plus owner claims her device split open while charging, and a Japanese owner of an iPhone 8 Plus claims the handset arrived already cracked open.
The tech outlet ifeng includes images of the Taiwanese owner’s device in its report.
In the case of the Taiwanese owner, the iPhone 8 Plus was reportedly being charged when the front panel began to bulge and eventually lifted from the body of the device.
The owner was reportedly using the Apple-supplied cable and plug adaptor.
The incident occurred after five days of ownership, and the device was returned to the original carrier afterward.
That device has now reportedly been returned to Apple for investigation.
The Japanese owner tweeted out photos of his iPhone 8 Plus, which he claims came already with a bulging, cracked front panel.
According to 9to5Mac’s report, Apple is unaware of this type of damage occurring on any other iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.
