Apple iPhone 8 Destroyed Due to Battery Malfunction

Apple’s iPhone 8 seems to have some issues.

This is probably an isolated incident, but it looks like a particular iPhone 8 was on the verge of an explosion. The incident definitely reminds us of Samsung’s Note 7 fiasco, which was largely caused by constrained batteries. We recently reported on a particular iPhone that exploded while charging. Consequently, Apple has launched a formal investigation into the matter. Now, a Chinese woman named Xiaomin ran into some serious issues after she left her phone to charge overnight. Apparently, she heard some cracking sounds and saw smoke coming out of the device.

So what happened?

Admittedly, she may have made things worse when she poured water over it. This didn’t solve anything, as it did not stop the noise or the smoke emissions. After the incident, Xiaomin took some pictures of the broken iPhone and sent them over to Apple. She’s likely hoping for a replacement, but Apple has not issued an official statement just yet. Other users have reported receiving iPhone 8 phones with deformities out of the box. Reports regarding battery malfunctions are also surfacing. However, this is the first time that we heard about an iPhone 8 crackling and emitting smoke.

We’ll definitely keep you posted as the story develops.
