Ive got a 7 plus and not had any issues, doesn't it only hiss when the cpu is under a heavy load?

nope, I've had a few iPhone 7's and they make a hiss when the screen is turned on. The sound is also picked up when recording video.

Is it the standard 7 you are getting, or the plus? My brother has a plus too and he has no issues, but im sure the problem does exist with the plus too, so are the replacements by apple still giving the same issue? Also is it happening on the home screen when no apps are running?

The standard 7. Yes, both models have the issues. I haven't been to replace it as I cannot get any Genius Bar appointments in my schedule - rather I have returned my iPhones and re-ordered new ones in the hope that the issue would only exist in a certain batch/Apple would have hopefully fixed it already... last one I bought near start of November, which had the hissgate. The sound is apparent even with no apps running and just on the lock screen.

Running on the 7 Jet Black 128mb and no hiss for me, first I have heard of this. I did have an issue on a 6s, heard when recorded video and after a sound test at Apple - diagnosed with faulty rear mic - but a hiss on lock screen sounds like a worry!

I hope the new phone works for you without the issue, I heard about the hissing issue it when first released but heard much about about it since then so maybe the newer batches are ok?

youtu.be/FqA…PcQ I think this video explains why the hissing happens? Loud capacitors?

Have yet to order a new one.. not sure if it's worth the hassle yet. May order when supply for the 7 Plus meets demand (and hopefully by then Apple will have amended the issue in manufacturing process). My last one was received near start of November, so the issue is still out there

Yup. So your's makes absolutely no sound at the back when you put it against your ear when using it?
