iPhone 7 Hisses Under Load

Apple was prepared to revel in the success of their iPhone 7 launch in light of Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Their celebration was short lived however. There is a growing number of iPhone 7 owner reporting that their devices are "hissing" when under load. This white noise could be coming from bad electronics inside. There is no word yet how widespread the problem is - whether they are all susceptible or if the affected devices came from a single bad batch.

Some early iPhone 7 adopters are getting considerably more than they bargained for. Reports are surfacing of both the regular iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus producing hissing sounds when they're subjected to a heavy processor workload, such as a game. They continue to function, thankfully, but it's a bit disconcerting when most phones are virtually silent.
