The Apple iPhone X is the first Apple smartphone to feature an edge-to-edge display, which is being called the Super Retina Display. "At a starting price of $999 for the 64GB version (vs. $699 for iPhone 8, $799 for iPhone 8 Plus), we expect this will drive a healthy uptick in iPhone ASPs and have a favorable impact on margins".

In a statement, Apple said it was aware of the reports and was "looking into" what might have caused the fault. Sanders Capital LLC now owns 8,007,685 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $1,177,522,000 after buying an additional 91,860 shares during the period. After months of investigation, Apple's rival confirmed that the fires were caused by a couple of battery manufacturing errors. With the Android device, applying a Live wallpaper may be a problem as it slows down the phone and decreases the battery life in some cases.

The past week has seen pictures of newly-purchased iPhone 8 units that were split in half. Industry sources claim that Samsung SDI and LG Chem produce the batteries for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. However it seems that there are now more reports of such incidents happening coming from various parts of the world such as China, Canada, and Greece.

All the reported instances only show that the tech giant could have a great dilemma on its hands, especially post the Note 7 crisis previous year, as millions of iPhone 8 units have already been sold. However, it is the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which are making the headlines for being the best-selling smartphones in the first half of 2017.

For now, the current number of reports regarding inflated iPhone 8 batteries is not enough to conclude that the problem exists in every model distributed worldwide, Tech Crunch reported. This is because Apple's deliveries of new iPhones at the end of its third quarter are nearly always determined by production - not demand. It has revealed that the Apple iPhone 7 is present at the number one spot followed by the iPhone 7 Plus.

While some users say that they encountered the issue of bloated batteries after using the phone for a few days, others report that their brand new phones were found to be cracked opened as they unboxed.
