However, the difference with this device is that the owner claims it arrived defective. Bulging and cracking on the front panel, Apple claims they are unaware of this issue occurring on both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Ars Technica sites that Apple will verify that the issue stems from Apple’s end. However, users will claim to be using the supplied cable but if they used third-party cables would invalidate their claim. Apple has had a few experiences with their devices are rendered useless due to third-party peripherals. With any device, you should always use official charging cables.
That is not to say that issues like this have never occurred with Apple. They have experienced issues with their Apple Watch’s batteries. The original iPhone Plus models were prone to unusual bending. However, if this is the extend of the issues, it will quickly fade.
