Following this incident, reports from iPhone 8 Plus owners in Toronto, Greece, Hong Kong and Japan began claiming similar issues.

For this reason, five IPhone 8 Plus battery failure cases, consisting of millions of devices, are not exactly a source of concern at this point, but we will continue to monitor situation to see if a larger trend has evolved. The company gave no further details on the issue, including the number of such incidents reported.

Reports of iPhone 8s popping open due to battery swelling have plunged the future of the device into doubt.

Apple said it's looking into the matter and won't comment further pending a full investigation. In another case, a woman in Taiwan said that her device split open after she charged it with the included cable and wall adapter.

Apple ( AAPL ) stock was back in the red on Friday amid a fresh report from Asia that the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus could have a battery issue.

On its website on Thursday, China's state-backed ThePaper.cn cited an iPhone buyer surnamed Liu as saying his newly purchased iPhone 8 Plus arrived cracked open on October 5. The most likely resolution is that Apple changes something silently on the supply chain side to stop new devices from being produced with this fault.

But the spotlight has been shone on battery issues following the disastrous problems faced by Samsung with it's 2016 Galaxy Note 7.

Such incidents will surely downplay the popularity of Apple's latest flagship, which is already being reported to have a comparatively slower start.

Apple's shares have slid since the launch of the iPhone 8, which has been met with lukewarm reviews.

Apple has yet to release figures for the first weekend sales of the new iPhones, so it's unclear what percentage of users this is affecting at this time.
