It seems that even massive product launches such as the iPhone 7 is without any product issues. Apple isn’t new to this thing, #bendgate, #antennagate is just a few, now that Apple is once again launched the next version of the iPhone, the Cupertino giant is facing yet another issue.

Though, this isn’t that serious as the recent exploding battery issue on Samsung’s Galaxy Note7, Apple who is renowned for product quality and standards will have to face the latest hissing sound issue resonated by the newly launched iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

Initially reported by Stephen Hackett of 512 Pixels on its official twitter account in which he wrote “My iPhone 7 Plus makes terrible noises when under load. – @ismh“. The claim now became a wide-spread issue for iPhone 7 Plus users and it isn’t only the sound becoming noticeable by users as a number of them are also reporting heating issues when placing the handset under loads of apps running.

The video above just showed us what it would be like when the iPhone 7 Plus is subjected to such loads. One described the hissing sound as similar to a laptop fan. Though Apple’s support center didn’t dig into the matter fully at the moment, but they’ve suggested that Hackett should go to the an Apple retail store and have his unit replaced. Thankfully a replacement unit was given to Hackett immediately but it seems like the problem is there as well.

Users are speculating about the noise that seems to have radiated from the back of the unit and that it maybe coming from iPhone 7 Plus’s A10 Fusion chip which would kick in when the device is subjected into heavy loads. As of the moment, Apple does not comment on anything regarding the issue but if you find your unit making the same noise especially when they are bugging you while using them, it would be better to go back to the store where you purchase the device so they could replace your device as soon as possible.
