IPhone X users reporting 'crackling' sounds from earpiece speaker

Kuo now pegs next year as the "real super-cycle" because he believes Apple will release its new phones on-time without delays, the larger range of price-options with Face ID, and strong demand for iPhone X continuing through 2018. If you recall, the current iPhone X starts at $999. To be more precise, the iPhone X's Samsung supplied OLED display has trouble with sudden cold.

In addition to a new 5.8-inch OLED model (an updated iPhone X), KGI expects Apple to introduce a 6.5-inch OLED model (think Plus-sized iPhone X) in addition to a new 6.1-inch LCD model.

In a tweet, Apple said people could "fix it by installing the latest software update". TrueDepth Camera features like Face ID, Animoji, and Portrait mode selfies are exclusive to the iPhone X this year but should spread across the line next year.

Apple is also said to be working on a 6.5-inch iPhone with a design like the iPhone X but with a bigger OLED screen. Some users report that it only happens at max volume, while others have problems right down to around 70 per cent.

A number of users on Reddit suggested that they were able to bring in their phones for replacement units that didn't have the issue. A MacRumors report observed that any sound that comes out of the top speaker can crackle including from music, phone calls and alarms.

Apple was not immediately available to comment. It's clear that the iPhone X has shaped the design in which we'll see on iPhone devices over the coming years.

While it's only a very small percentage of devices likely to have the issue - millions have been sold, and the reports aren't that widespread - it's still common enough to have been noticed by users all over the world.

"Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures". While keeping the general look and much of the interface intact, it's also throwing out the playbook and putting new technology at the literal fingertips of its users.
