Just a few weeks after the launch of iPhone models for 2017, some iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+ users have raised a ‘crackling sound’ issue that they could listen to, when making calls, be it cellular or FaceTime.
In particular, one of the affected user had sent a voice memo to Apple and got an assurance that it will be fixed with a software update. Another iPhone 8+ user got the phone replaced, but still, with the new iPhone too, the issue persisted. Further, the iOS 11 update couldn’t solve the issue because, users who have updated to iOS 11 could still find the crackling sound when making phone calls.
In one of the videos shared by an affected user, the crackling sound doesn’t seem to be too obvious. There’s a small pop-like sound at the end of the earpiece. It may not be annoying or some may not observe this noise instantly. Last week, review units of Apple Watch 3 LTE, did not function well due to LTE connectivity issues. Hopefully, Apple sorts them out before it becomes as big as iPhone 6 Plus bendgate issue.
