Apple Confirms that a Fix Is Coming for iPhone 8’s Sound Problem

We finally got our hands on Apple’s iPhone 8 starting from September 22nd but several users have complained that they are experiencing cracking sounds in their devices’ earpiece. Earlier today, Apple has revealed that it is working on brining a fix for the issue meaning that if you are experiencing the issue, you won’t have to deal with it for much longer.

The confirmation comes thanks to the company’s official statement made to The Verge. According to the company, the problem is affecting a small number of users and the problem will be fixed with an upcoming iOS release. The company said, “We are aware of the issue which is affecting customers in a small number of cases,” an Apple spokesperson said. “Our team is at work on a fix, which will be included in an upcoming software release.”

The issue appeared shortly after the release and two of the posts in the support forum indicated the problem. They revealed, “It’s intermittent – on some calls you can perfectly notice it on others no problem. I have already tried resetting the phone with no success on solving the problem. I’m dealing with the issue since Friday. Very disappointed!”


“I can confirm I have this issues with a 1 day old 8+. I have turned speakerphone on/off. I have disabled LTE voice, I have disabled Noise Cancellation.. nothing solves this issue. I thought I didn’t have it and then on calls with my wife last night I heard it.”

While the company released an update earlier today, the update doesn’t include fix for the annoying problem and it’s unknown when the fix will arrive. Hopefully, the company will act promptly to release the fix.
