  • Apple investigates iPhone 8 battery swelling, splitting handsets apart

As per the reports, the upcoming update will fix the issues for all the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus users and there are chances that the update will bring some new features as well.

It is still unclear what caused the battery inside the iPhone 8 Plus to bulge out like that - regardless if it's being charged or not.

iPhone X pre-orders aren't slated to open up for another few weeks, but demand for Apple's forthcoming flagship iPhone is already quite strong.

According to analysts, the iPhone 8 is not attractive to the consumers at all. Bezel-less OLED design, wireless charging, OIS on both camera, Face ID, and the home-button-less design is something that is straight from the sci-fi movie.

If any of this happens, I'm sure I'd rather just have the more traditional and stable iPhone 8 Plus. Differences aside, let's get to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus' good part: the glass back.

It must be noted that the solution actually comes from Belkin, which came up with an adaptor that enables users to plug in a 3.5 mm headphone jack and the Lightning cable for charging. iPhone users who were deprived of the headphone jack can now get this iPhone dongle at Apple retail stores. According to the IHS Markit Smartphone Model Market Tracker for Q3 2017, the top three smartphone makers are Samsung, with 23% of the market; Apple, with 12%; and Huawei with 11%.

Denise Salmon Burditus, 50, reportedly died in her husband's arms just minutes after posting this picture of themselves. Smith was an ardent country music fan and worked at an elementary school for three years, the newspaper said.


In other news, CEO Timothy D. Cook sold 268,623 shares of the company's stock in a transaction dated Monday, August 28th. That being said, I didn't notice any difference in performance level compared to the iPhone 7 Plus, though the extra power will likely be utilised by Apple and developers in the future.

The size of the Belkin dongle is very huge and it is very going to compact at all especially if you plan to use it on the go. The new Belkin dongle is made of plastic and can be purchased for $35. After all, the A11 Bionic chip powering the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is one of the most powerful mobile processors in the market now.

The complaints, first reported by The Verge, have surfaced on sites such as Reddit, Apple's support page and MacRumors forums. Apple likes to create the best products and a good return on them.

Results from a survey conducted by RBC Capital Markets found that 64 percent of prospective iPhone buyers want an iPhone X, 8 Plus or 8.

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus have new sensors, with lenses featuring f1.8 and f2.8 apertures - brighter than the 7 Plus telephoto - in the iPhone 8 Plus. New color filters were added.

We think Apple's (US) core fans and some iPhone 6 and 6s users are willing to pay a hefty price for this upgraded device.
