More issues: Several iPhones X are popping and humming in the front speaker

If you thought it was a bad device cheap as the iPhone X not working right in the cold and appearing with a green line on your screen, imagine now that some users are experiencing another new problem

As told by MacRumors, there are several users complaining about “Crackles” and “hums” coming from front speaker (ear) iPhone X when playing sounds at very high or maximum volumes.

On affected handsets, pops appear when playing any kind of sound, whether listening to music, watching a video, a phone call, an alarm, a ringtone, etc. And looking at the cases, it doesn't seem like the problem is limited to a specific iPhone X configuration or an iOS version.

Some of the users went to Apple stores and Apple changed the handsets at no charge, but many said the problem persists even with the new unit. Despite no official comment, Apple seems to be collecting diagnostics and investigating the problem.

When iPhones 8 and 8 Plus were released, a similar issue affected users, but fortunately the problem was fixed with a simple software update (iOS 11.0.1). As the new reports are not limited to audio calls, everything seems to be something different. However, the twist is that, in the case of the iPhone X, it is also a problem solvable by updating (not a hardware problem).

It is noteworthy that among our iPhones X (Rafael, Eduardo and Breno are already using the new device, as well as some collaborators of the site), no one was "drawn" with any of these problems commented by us so far.
