The iPhone 8 series will be retailed through all three mobile carriers - SK Telecom, KT and LG U+.

At least five separate reports of the new 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus smartphones have shown deformed phones, swelled batteries and screens being detached from the aluminum bodies of the devices.

There is no known reason behind this, although Apple has already acknowledged the battery issue. 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.

Apple might want to find the actual cause of the issue and fix it at the earliest as the iPhone X launch isn't far away now. The Cupertino-based tech giant said that they are already aware of the situation and they are now "looking into" the problem.

It seems to be like a case of faulty batteries in the new iPhones.

Notice to CBI following Dera chief's appeal against conviction
A police officer in Panchkula, Haryana said they found out about the condition of the two arrestees during primary investigation. He had alleged that it was Honeypreet who disbursed Rs 1.25 crore for the supporters, ahead of the judgement.

The good news is that the iPhone 8 Plus appears to be created to pop open, preventing any explosions.

Rival Samsung a year ago recalled its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after reports of batteries overheating and catching fire.

IHS Markit, a London-based research firm has confirmed the list of top 10 bestselling smartphones for the first half of 2017. Samsung and Apple respectively have 10 and 4 phones that have shipped over 1 million units per month.

Preorders in the US for the iPhone 8 were lower than for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6, Jun Zhang, an analyst with Rosenblatt Securities, said in a note to clients on September 20. Afterwards, similar cases of swollen iPhone 8 batteries were reported in Japan, China, Greece, and Canada. The battery defect was so bad that the company was forced to order a total recall of all Note 7 units worldwide, dealing them with losses worth millions of dollars.
