A user from Taiwan claimed her iPhone 8 Plus, which belongs to Apple’s latest line-up of devices, split open while it was charging. “So far, the finger of blame is being pointed at the battery. Unconfirmed reports state the iPhone 8 Plus uses the same battery manufacturer, Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7”, The Next Web reported late on Friday. The screen of the device bulged out five days after the user purchased it.

The woman had purchased a 64GB “Rose Gold” iPhone 8 Plus and she put it on charge, using the supplied cable and adaptor. “After about three minutes, she reported seeing the front panel bulge, and eventually lift completely from the device”, the report added. The Cupertino-headquartered giant is currently investigating reports of iPhone 8 Plus splitting open and the reason remains unclear as of now.

Similar reports have emerged from Japan where one owner claimed his phone arrived in a state with the screen visibly detached from the body. However, there have been no reports of visible evidence of burn marks. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were made available from September 22 in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, the UK and other countries.

Apple launched iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, starting at Rs 64,000, in India on Friday while pre-bookings had started on September 22. The iPhone X will arrive in India on November 3, starting at Rs 89,000.

    I've been reluctant in purchasing this blank ATM card I heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but I was convinced shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from JOHN HART we both confirmed it really works, without delay I gave it a go. Ever since then I've been withdrawing $5000 daily from the card the money has been in my own account. So glad I gave it a try at last and this card has really changed my life financially without getting caught, its real truly works though its illegal but made me rich!! If you need this card from JOHN HART then here is his email: johnhart0022

      Hi, My name is JASON GREY and I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called CARL. I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. They told me that its a card programmed for om money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions.. Four days later I received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, to my greatest surprise It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $3000. I just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank ATM has really change my life. If you want to contact them, Here is the email address (atmcardservice41 ) And I believe they will also Change your Life.
