Some Apple iPhone X units facing an earphone bug


From the many pictures, it looks like the line typically runs vertically along the far left or right side of the screen, but can show up elsewhere on the screen as well.

The first complaints surfaced just hours after the iPhone X was released, however they've since been corroborated by a number of users, including those on MacRumors' own support forums, as well as among the Twitter and Reddit communities.

However, I still want to balk at certain things, especially that huge 6.5-inch iPhone, which would easily be Apple's biggest iPhone yet, and noticeably larger than borderline unwieldy phones like the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 8. Additionally, Apple is collecting data from the incident so that engineers can dig into the matter and work to prevent such events from happening in the future. Let's hope that these problems are only isolated issues, and are not found in the batch that will be launched in Malaysia next Friday, 24 November 2017. One user says the issue is so bad for him that the crackling occurs even around 50 percent volume. So it is not yet clear whether the crackling and buzzing is a hardware fault or a software issue. The company is also working to collect "diagnostic information" from users so that it's engineering team can "investigate the issue" and provide a permanent solution for it.

Importantly, though, this won't really be a "backwards-looking" phone like this year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus; instead, the LCD phone will adopt the iPhone X's basic form factor, sensor "notch" and all. Regardless of this, it remains unlikely that Apple will achieve supply-demand balance until 2018. Kuo's predictions also seem to confirm what many have suspected: the death of Touch ID is coming in 2018-at least at the top of Apple's line.

Kuo believes that all three of these new handsets will follow in the same form factor as the iPhone X, with an edge-to-edge, notched screen design.
