    The article says: "There's nothing on the A10 — or anything else in the iPhone 7/7 Plus, short of the audio system — that should be capable of directly generating noise." But anything that moves can generate noise: the Taptic engine, the water-ejector system in the speakers, the vibrating ringer on the phone. The fact that earlier iPhones experienced the same issues likely means this is not a mystery in Cupertino.

    If people are "annoyed", then can return their phones within 14 days; or is this the usual fake "outrage" (sic) related to Apple.
    These people that would frame it as a personal slight against them are the same ones that are now upset that Apple didn't have the exact size, color, capacity, and carrier on launch day.

    I'm sure this will be properly addresses with the iPhone 7s
    Apple is still building phones for the iPhone 7 launch, they can fix it before the remaining orders are shipped. Many orders won't even ship till November. 
    They can do it.  :D

    For those thinking it is air escaping, explain to me how much air you think is in the case? The hissing is constant. If its air escaping, eventually all the air that can escape, will and the hiss will stop. In the reports, the hiss doesn't stop until the task is complete.

    Venting prevents explosion.

    Is it an electrical hiss, an acoustical (speaker) hiss, or a boiling hiss?
    Post 7 included a sound file
    Which doesn't reveal whether the sound comes from a speaker or not. If anybody can duplicate this, please put your finger(s) over the speaker holes to see if the sound changes. And press on the screen and the back while the sound is happening.

    In other words, use common sense and the tools you have at hand to make an elementary investigation, fer chrissake.

    Edit: The rext from 512 Pixels thar goes with the video says explicitly that the noise comes from the back of the phone and assumes it's from the CPU. A physical approach with the fingers would still be helpful, seems to me.

    So.... that many hours have already passed since the news came out, and yet there is no class action lawsuit? That's odd.

    You're thinking of the Watch, the phone doesn't eject water.

    The best iPhones ever are the S series.
    The best at an early implementation of a technology which will be more fully realized in the full numbered revision to follow. See; Siri, TouchID, 3D Touch, Taptic Engine...

    How is it constant? Its UNDER LOAD. That tells you it is not constant.

    Air is pulsed in an out of a very tiny hole, like a tiny speaker.
    If the variation in temp is very high and the volume of air very small, you'll get that.
    Even under load the CPU is not really active 100% of the time.

    Speakers put out a lot of air and they're not moving much either.

    Pressing the case should raise the frequency.

    Tell these iPhone 7 users to first get their hearing checked.

    That's definitely something power-related. Maybe a voltage regulator is poor?

    I make a hissing sound when heavy demands are placed on me, too.
    My wallet is sizzling from my iPhone purchases.   Does that count?

    They only got hissing? They couldn't master the crackling feature like Samsung?
