Media in Taiwan interviewed one owner who said his device cracked open while plugged into an official Apple Lightning cable and power adapter when it was just five days old. Another iPhone 8 Plus received by a customer in Japan arrived with the screen partially detached as well. Apple is “looking into” the reports, which likely involve problems with swelling batteries.
