An Apple's spokesperson said they are looking into the matter and declined to comment.

iPhone 8 is the phone which comes 10 years after Apple released the first version of the revolutionary phone, which makes the incident indifferent. 

Some other buyers worry about if their pre-orders were alright and many of the fans are still waiting for premium iPhone X brought onto the market in early November.

Two customers in Asia earlier claimed the model's Plus split at the seams after it had been charged. 

Apple is said to be looking into the issue. It is still unknown that whether these are isolated incidents or the problem of a load.

An online Video showed a Taiwanese customer's rose gold handset has split along the top and sides. 

Another Japanese user also shared images to Twitter claiming that the screen separated from the body of the device.

However, many reports and worries of the issues are proved fake upon further investigation. It is said that slight variations in the device can be counted as manufacturing defects which are common to most new devices.

Even some negative messages, Apple is still one of the leading companies of smartphones.
