IPhone X Users Report Annoying Earpiece 'Crackling' Sounds

Just last week, several users reported of a mysterious green line running down the side of their iPhone X's brand new OLED display.

"As there are plans for a 5.8" OLED model next year, this is likely the 2nd generation of the iPhone X (the first gen being 5.8" too), and the 6.5" OLED screen will be the iPhone X Plus. Following that, new reports have emerged where some users are seeing a green line vertically across the display, while others are facing a crackling or buzzing sound from the phone's earpiece speaker.

With all of the new features announced this year there's never been a better time to pick up an iPhone 8 Plus or the newly released iPhone X. Apple has found that there is a software bug that's causing the issue and is working on a fix via a software update which will be arriving soon, most probably in iOS 11.2, which is now in beta testing stage. There hasn't been anything bad enough yet to spook investors - AAPL stock remains near record highs - but the iPhone X display may yet prove to be a problem that impacts sales. One user says the issue is so bad for him that the crackling occurs even around 50 percent volume. Many users have shared their concern about this defect on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Apple official forums. Similarly, it is expected that Apple will soon officially comment on the issue after some initial investigation.

The pause was necessary to "review and reflect on the loss of a young life", the university said in a statement Monday. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.

If true Apple may use the device's displays to differentiate between high-end and mid-range models.

The Cupertino giant has acknowledged that some iPhone X units are susceptible to unresponsive touch in cold temperatures and it is working on a fix that should resolve the issue via a software update in the coming days.

"The three new devices are set to include a 6.5" OLED model, a 5.8" OLED model, and a 6.1" TFT-LCD model. All of them are going to sport a high screen-to-body ratio and there is also going to be an LCD model included.
