    Hello,
    I have heard that Iphone 7 and Iphone 7 plus have hissing problem, so since I want to buy Iphone 7 Plus I have few questions.
    Are all devices affected by this?
    Is there any solution, can it be cured with software update?
    Thanks

    Well now that's not even remotely close to true. I had it on my iPhone 7 Plus. Which was directly in line with videos and comments I've seen online on this site and Macrumors.

    So basically you are telling me that 90% of iphone 7's don't have a problem and other 10% has?

    Even less than 10%. And believe me, it would have dethroned Samsung's Note 7 fiasco if it was a real problem.
    Yes I said it. If Apple had even the slightest issues with their new devices, it would have been front page news, regardless of what else happened around the smartphone world, so to speak.

    Buzzing / static sound coming from back of new iPhone 7 Plus | Page 63 | MacRumors Forums

    Check that thread out. I'm not saying don't get one. But if people on here are telling you that this isn't an actual problem, then they're not giving you the whole story. I had a 7 Plus Matte Black with 256gb. I didn't notice a coil whine but I did notice loud cracking, popping, and static in videos. Which is a pretty well known issue. I ordered another to see if a later batch has this issue fixed, and I'm not supposed to get it until November at this point.

    SO decided to stick with Samsung, I will wait for S8 edge, they will probably make it REALLY good because they failed with note 7 so...

    It is like if the battery is to close to the mic.
    What we hear is the electrical current passing by

    It's present on my 7 Plus and wife's 7 Plus. But you have to put the back of the phone up to your hear to hear it. Doesn't bother me at all.

    Worth keeping 'so many problems' in perspective: handful or even hundreds of comments on forums can reflect pretty isolated/limited problems - keep in mind the millions of phones out there with no complaints - those folks remain quiet and happy.

    Not buying iPhone due to possible (and possibly limited) hissing a bit like not ordering soup cuz there *might* be a fly in it.

    Respect your decision to not buy - enjoy your new Samsung.

    From what I've saw on proper reviews most people will never notice it and it's pretty normal.

    Hissing is a minor issue on some phones with recording video only. I honestly have never shot a video on my phone after having an iPhone since iPhone 3, so for me, not an issue. If you record a lot of video and it's important, than it's a crapshoot.

    There is no hissing sounds on my iPhone 7. Btw keep in mind that there are people that could find just ANY defect in their Apple product. Some of them are verging OCD. really

    Lol, MacRumors, the last forum on the web where collect unbiased opinions about Apple products. That place is a nest of haters and OCD affected people (people literally returning dozens of fully functional devices)....
