Earpiece speaker experiencing issues for some iPhone X units

Earpiece speaker experiencing issues for some iPhone X units

Apple's 2017 flagship, the iPhone X, has been suffering from a series of glitches since its launch.

"As someone who spends a lot of time skiing, this is the deal breaker if it's a widespread issue", wrote a user in a thread on Reddit. There have already been several issues with the iPhone X, and the latest issue relates to the iPhone X speaker buzzing. In the comments of that article, a discussion emerged regarding earpiece crackling.

Samsung AMOLED displays have experienced similar issues in the past.

Several iPhone X users took to Twitter to vent their frustration. One user called it 'the green line of death'. It seems to be rattling/clipping when playing anything at high volume, even if it's just someone talking. The company had also informed users that the same OLED display could show blue tints at acute viewing angles and slight visual changes over time. Users claim the so-called "crackling" or "buzzing" sounds from the device's earpiece speaker tend to occur at high or max volumes. Apple fixed the iPhone 8 problem via a software update. It is also unclear as of now whether the issues faced are OLED-related or whether it is due to some other reason.

When I left the store with my replacement and discovered it had the same speaker problem, I turned around and went right back in, and the employee who was helping me and chose to exchange the phone in the first place said how it had to then be software related.

Again it's unclear what is causing the issue, but in numerous cases users booked a Genius Bar appointment and had their iPhone X replaced (which seems like the best option at this point). If you're experiencing any problems with your iPhone X speaker, the best thing you can do is book a Genius bar appointment and get a replacement free of charge.
