There can be no iPhone launch without some controversy surrounding it. Now, the same is happening with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, with one more incident being reported where a new iPhone is found to be split open from the sides, exposing the machinery inside. Swelling of the battery is being blamed for the issue.

Following the recent complaints, Apple has now confirmed that it is investigating the issue, according to TechCrunch. The company gave no further details on the issue, including the number of such incidents reported.  However, so far not many incidents have been heard of. A recent report from CNET talked about six reports in around five countries of the iPhone 8 splitting.

The first case of the iPhone 8 splitting was reported in Taiwan, where a woman purchased a 64GB iPhone 8 Plus in rose gold. After five days, when she put the phone on to charge using the original cable, the owner noticed a bulge in the front panel.  Similar incidents have also been reported in Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and Greece.
