Users Report About iPhone 7 and 7 Plus ‘Hissing’ Noise Under Load
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.
First reports about strange noise started to surface online on Friday. Stephen Hackett of 512 Pixels then faced the problem himself. Apple agreed to replace the phone, but since the stock of new iPhone models is rather low, he has to wait a bit.
Currently it is unclear if all models are faulty or only some of them.
One Redditor who got his iPhone 7 Plus replaced at an Apple store noticed immediately that his new iPhone was making a similar sound, so the issue could potentially be affecting a large number of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models due to the high-capacity performance abilities of the A10 chip.
Apple has not yet commented on the issue. Hopefully, the problem can be resolved without recalling all iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus units sold to the moment. Otherwise, Apple may get into troubles similar to those Samsung currently has with the Galaxy Note 7.
