I'm a tech nerd so, like you, when something new comes out, especially the iPhone, I want it. If you've been an Apple user for a while, you've learned that once Apple does something completely new, the first one is usually worth skipping. That's kind of what happened with the iPhone 8 Plus.

In what The Daily Dot is referring to as "Splitgate," Apple confirmed earlier this week, cases of the new iPhone 8 Pluses splitting open while charging. One woman in Taiwan said that after only 5 days, the iPhone split open after charging with an official Apple cord.

If you're keeping away from the new iPhone but downloading the new software, you may not be any better off. There were complaints of serious email and battery life issues. Apple tried to fix it and now it may cause screen freezes, app shut downs but the email issue has been fixed.
