Fortunately, Apple lately addressed the overheating difficulty impacting the iPhone 15 Professional and 15 Professional Max. Apple rolled out a software program replace for iOS 17 this week, and better of all, it didn’t even must throttle the efficiency of that A17 Professional chip.

However there may be one other difficulty Apple wants to repair: The speaker. Some customers have complained on social media about speaker noises that seem when enjoying sound at louder ranges. A TikTok consumer revealed they took the iPhone 15 Professional Max to Apple for substitute. The corporate acknowledged the sound difficulty, changing it twice. The difficulty appears to persist.

iPhone 15 homeowners have noticed the problem when enjoying sound (together with movies and calls) with the quantity set at over 80%. They describe it as a crackling or rattling sound or as if there’s water contained in the speaker. The issue seems to influence the highest speaker primarily.

In a video, TikTok consumer MilesAboveTech defined that Apple acknowledged the problem and changed his iPhone 15 Professional Max twice. However all three models ended up manifesting the identical speaker signs.

Furthermore, he went to an Apple retailer to attempt varied iPhone 15 fashions and located that every one 4 variations might exhibit the identical sound points.

It’s unclear how widespread the issue is. Miles is simply one of many iPhone 15 consumers who’ve detailed the sound downside on-line. Additionally, it appears like Apple is confirming the problems by swapping out the faulty telephones. That’s one factor to contemplate if the crackling sounds trouble you. Nevertheless it additionally appears like substitute models include the identical sound downside.

A greater thought may be ready for Apple to deal with the matter publicly. It could be {that a} software program difficulty fixes the speaker issues on all iPhone 15 telephones. You received’t should return the handset if that’s the case.

If it’s a {hardware} difficulty and speaker parts are in charge, Apple will probably repair the issue on the manufacturing stage. Meaning future iPhone 15 fashions won’t endure from the identical difficulty. And that would be the time to change your iPhone 15 for a substitute.

I’m solely speculating, as I can not know what causes the sound points or how Apple will repair this downside. I’m nonetheless utilizing an iPhone 14 Professional, and I don’t plan on upgrading to the brand new iPhone. Additionally, I haven’t encountered sound points since shopping for it final 12 months.

Contemplating that Apple has already confirmed the overheating points for the iPhone 15 Professional fashions, I’d count on the corporate to additionally deal with the sound issues within the close to future. That’s if the speaker difficulty is as widespread.
