Apple confirms investigation into reports of iPhone 8 falling apart

Apple confirms investigation into reports of iPhone 8 falling apart

The owner was reportedly using the Apple-supplied cable and plug adaptor. One is that the glue being used to hold the phone together is weak or improperly applied. It means the iPhone 8 battery is smaller than the iPhone 7 (1,960mAh), and the 8 Plus battery is smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus (2900mAh). The handsets look very similar to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but feature wireless charging and improved cameras. This problem hasn't reached Samsung Note 7 status, and these could be isolated incidents with issues that won't affect the majority of iPhone 8 Plus users. If you have checked properly you will have noticed that your current iPhone has become appreciatively slower.

We may have a disaster on our hands, as another iPhone 8 Plus has gone up in metaphorical flames, with the smartphone giants set to launch an investigation.

"This [iPhone 8] model doesn't have that striking quality that makes users' eyes light up", Xie Pu, a technology columnist also added. Case in point, according to TechCrunch, the Oakland Athletics are piloting a new system that will let you tap your iPhone or Apple Watch on ticket scanners to go see a baseball game. Previously, Apple removed the headphone port and replaced it with an only lightening port.

The news could be a big blow to the company as it comes just days after the device was launched. Of course, this is a rough generalization and the results will vary for each device, but the stats show that there is a real problem that is yet to be fixed by Apple.

IPhone X Battery Capacity, RAM, Chip Speed Revealed in China
That means the iPhone 8 bill of materials equals about 35 percent of the sales price - about the same as past year . A new report reveals that they are also expensive to manufacture, costing more per device than any previous iPhone.

The reports - one in Taiwan, one in Japan - made the rounds on social media earlier this week, showing images of smartphones in which the screen had separated from the rest of the phone.

"It's intermittent - on some calls you can perfectly notice it on others no problem", reads an Apple user's comment on an official discussion board.

But if you have the iPhone 7, you really don't need to upgrade to the iPhone 8 because it really isn't that much of an upgrade. If you still haven't upgraded, waiting until 11.0.3 couldn't hurt.
