The report says if the capacity of the 8 Plus iPhone battery is at 70%, and the woman is charging her iPhone 8 Plus battery using the original cable and charger. After 3 minutes of charging, the device instantly explodes.
The explosion seems powerful enough to be able to separate the display panel of the smartphone body, as you can see in the picture above. However, the explosion is not to burn the iPhone 8 Plus.
Even reports from the Taiwanese media say if the woman is a loyal user of the iPhone, since the iPhone 4 was launched and he has never experienced such a situation before. Now the exploding iPhone 8 Plus unit has been shipped to the factory for investigation.
