Apple's £999 iPhone X suffering from 'crackly' audio, some users complain

Apple's £999 iPhone X suffering from 'crackly' audio, some users complain

The analyst notes that the larger OLED model would presumably serve as a sort of "iPhone X Plus" featuring an edge-to-edge display and the general size of a Plus-sized iPhone.

Here's a listing of each iPhone X issue now being tracked.

"As there are plans for a 5.8" OLED model next year, this is likely the 2nd generation of the iPhone X (the first gen being 5.8" too), and the 6.5" OLED screen will be the iPhone X Plus.

That much hasn't changed, but as MacRumors relates, Kuo's research into the Apple supply line has now led him to predict that we'll also see a third 6.1-inch phone with a TFT-LCD display next year. The company claims that the unresponsive touchscreen problem in the iPhone X can be resolved with a software fix, and its engineers are hard at work creating a patch for the embarrassing problem. Last week, some users found that the iPhone X's screen freezes in cold temperatures. All the malfunctions are covered by warranty so those experiencing problems should visit Apple sooner rather than later. Many users have shared their concern about this defect on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Apple official forums.

A number of users on Reddit suggested that they were able to bring in their phones for replacement units that didn't have the issue. The problem persists when users tries any kind of audio playback at high volume, be it for phone calls, music, videos, alarms and ringtone. He further said that Apple will greatly reduce the bezels on this LCD model. The smartphone also offers a new all-glass unibody construction with wireless charging capability.

Are you looking forward to this new handset lineup? While no one has an idea on how the iPhone X can go even bigger, a visualized render of the iPhone X Plus has surfaced recently.

Apple claimed that the chances of the Face ID failing are one in a million, but recent reports and tests show otherwise.
