According to some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users, Apple’s new handsets are making hissing noise when loaded heavily. In particular, users claim that they hear strange subtle noise coming from the back of their iPhones each time they use resource-intensive apps or perform other tasks that load the processor and RAM. Most likely, the issue is somehow connected with the new A10 Fusion chip embedded into both iPhone models.
Aside from letting us know about the internals of the iPhone 7 Plus, the iFixit team has also performed a teardown of the Apple Watch Series 2 that went on sale in a number of countries together with new iPhones.
As noted by the experts, the smartwatch is much better protected from water. Furthermore, it has a new OLED display with integrated Force Touch, updated GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 hardware. There’s also a new S2 chip, better 273 mAh battery as well as some other improved components. The size of the wearable device is the same as the one the original Apple Watch has.
The smartwatch is packed with small parts, so disassembling it is quite a tough task. Similar to the first-generation Apple Watch, the 2016 model is rather difficult to repair, so its repairability score is 6 out 10.
Below you can take a look at the video and several photos of the teardown posted by iFixit.
As you know, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus feature improved cameras that should take incredible shots under any conditions.

According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone will come in a new color, namely, Gloss Black. The shade is similar to the color the Mac Pro has. Earlier this year, first rumors about the device have appeared on the Internet suggesting that Apple may be planning to discontinue the Space Gray iPhone and introduce a new shade.
Another confirmation of Apple’s plans to release the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as well as three new Apple Watch models and wireless headphones called the AirPods has appeared online. This time it is the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) certification document that is required for Apple to sell new products in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.
According to the latest report from Bloomberg, Apple is planning a major update to its Mac lineup for October. The experts believe the company will introduce new versions of the iMac, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro as well as the 5K monitor. If true, the rumor means that Apple will have a very busy fall.
Apple has officially announced its rumored media event dedicated to the iPhone 7. The company has started sending out the invites for the upcoming unveiling. As it was reported earlier, Apple will introduce the next-generation device on September 7th.
New images showing the ‘Space Black’ iPhone 7 back panel and the SIM card tray have recently appeared on the Internet. Shared by a user nicknamed The Malignant, the leaked photos look genuine.
Google has just posted a new Google Photos commercial targeted at those people who own a 16GB iPhone model. In a short ad, the company shows how often the users of entry-level iPhone versions see the warnings about lack of storage on their devices. In order not to think about storage problems, Google offers its Google Photos application that allows to back up photos and videos seamlessly and never run out of storage.
Google Photos is a good alternative to Apple’s iCloud Photo Library, so if you have a Google account, you can give this app a try.
According to the latest rumor, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will both feature a new Home button. The sources claim that it will be integrated into the display. So far, all iPhones have been equipped with physical buttons, but looks like Apple’s desire to reduce thickness, weight and the design of the smartphone will result in a switch to the new button. The report shared by Bloomberg reporters is based on data from reliable supply chain sources, so it is worth taking into account. The Home button will also provide haptic feedback similar to the one the trackpad on the latest MacBook provides.
According to the latest report from a reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch the second-generation Apple Watch later this year. The updated device will be powered by a new processor manufactured by TSMC, GPS, better battery, barometer and improved water resistance. The expert does not think Apple will include the LTE support in the 2016 device. As to the size and thickness of the smartwatch, they will likely be similar or the same as those of the existing model.
