Does the iPhone 7 have a hissing problem? Some owners are complaining the new iPhone makes a hissing noise from the logic board when it's busy completing a heavy task. The issue was brought into the media spotlight when journalist Stephen Hackett of the blog 512 Pixels shared a recording of his iPhone. Making a hissy fit. [BLANK_AUDIO] Other iPhone 7 owners have been speaking up on Twitter that they too were experiencing the same sound but not everyone has this issue. Here at CNET we didn't hear any sound with our iPhone 7. Maybe it's just a manufacturing snag for a few units, but Hackett, who recorded this, said that Apple is offering to replace his iPhone. If you hear a hiss, get in touch with us at the email address email@example.com. It's not clear how many people are hearing the static, so why is it getting so much media attention? Well, because we can't have a new iPhone without something reported going wrong, whether its bendgate or inhenigate, but hey, at least it's not catching fire and exploding. Exploding, like the Galaxy Note 7. Apparently, Samsung's exploding phones are actually Apple's fault. According to a Bloomberg report, Samsung executives pushed suppliers to rush production to meet shorter deadlines. In order for the Note 7 to beat the Iphone 7 launch, but it seems that rushing backfired, and now with a massive battery crisis Samsung had to recall 2.5 million Note 7 phones. The Korean company began exchanging devices on Monday for customers in the UK and Ireland. Customers in the US Have to wait until Wednesday to get new phones. That's it for this tech news update.
