Weird hissing noises
The issue: Shortly after getting their new iPhone 7 devices, some users began hearing a weird hissing noise emanating near the Apple logo on the back. The sound appears when the iPhone 7 is under heavy load. One affected user recorded the sound and posted it on YouTube. The Verge suggests that the issue is “coil noise” stemming from the high-capacity performance abilities of the new A10 fusion chip.
Solution? Apple has not officially commented on the issue, but affected users who took their faulty device to the Apple store were ordered a replacement phone, according to MacRumors.
